Preparing for Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana legalization is coming to Wisconsin, and soon patients suffering from severe or persistent health symptoms and conditions will be able to medicate for relief.

In the meantime, we encourage you to browse our website and take advantage of all it offers. Marijuana Doctors remains committed to helping patients better understand cannabis, CBD, and their therapeutic health benefits. Our medical marijuana doctor network is a trusted source for recreational and medicinal cannabis users everywhere.


How to Get a Medical Card in Wisconsin

Book an Appointment

When the time comes, you can visit us online to screen medical marijuana doctors and schedule an appointment for a marijuana treatment evaluation. Patients should be prepared to provide a recent copy of their medical records and a valid identification card and to discuss their medical concerns with a qualified medical marijuana physician. Certification from a licensed physician is necessary for patients to apply to the medical marijuana program in their state.


Medical marijuana treatment consultations are fast and convenient. Our licensed medical marijuana providers provide certifications for most medical conditions. Patients complete their evaluations and receive their medical marijuana certifications in less than 30 minutes.


Once approved, patients can submit their applications to the state. Approved applicants will receive a physical card by postal mail. Patients can visit any state-licensed dispensary of their choice in Wisconsin after they receive their medical marijuana cards. Wisconsin patients must see a licensed physician to renew their medical marijuana certifications. Marijuana Doctors sends notifications for renewal consultations prior to expiration to help patients avoid treatment interruptions.

What Happens After Your Medical Card Evaluation?

Get Your Medical Card

You will be able to download your medical card or receive a physical card in the mail within a few days. Many states have same-day documentation.

Visit a Dispensary

Medical dispensaries will be the first to open in Wisconsin. Once a patient has been issued a medical card, they can visit a licensed dispensary. Two types of identification are required to enter a medical marijuana dispensary; your medical card and another piece of government-issued photo ID.

Save Money

Patients can save 15% or more on each purchase compared to people who purchase from a recreational dispensary. In states that have both recreational and medically legalized cannabis, patients always pay less taxes on every cannabis product they buy.

Get Priority Access

Remember in 2020 when states started to do a lockdown and close non-essential retail stores? That also included recreational (adult-use) cannabis dispensaries. But when you are a patient with a medical card, those dispensaries stay open. Like a pharmacy, they are determined to be an 'essential service' and that gives patients peace of mind.

Schedule a Followup

Because the legislation is not yet written or completed, it is not clear whether Wisconsin will require a follow-up appointment between the patient and doctor. After you have received your medical card, it's a good idea to schedule your follow-up consultation about six months later. You'll be able to provide feedback to the doctor, if medical marijuana is working for you.

Renew Your Card

When a medical card is expired, you have to apply to become a registered patient all over again! And that means paying for another health evaluation, registration fees, and more. Renewing your Wisconsin medical card will be an easy thing to do. And you may even get reminders by email from the Wisconsin state patient portal.

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has already created a budget and rollout plan to legalize both recreational (adult-use) and medical marijuana. The timeline for the complete launch of both programs is 2021 to 2023. And the medical marijuana program will be launched first. Patients with a medical card will pay less taxes on cannabis, if Wisconsin follows the model of nearby states.
