NuggMD Makes Your Life Easier

You New Yorkers are lucky because you can now obtain a medical marijuana certification and ID card online, easily and discreetly, thanks to NuggMD!

In other marijuana-friendly states, NuggMD has streamlined and simplified the medical marijuana application process. Afterall, 60,000 Californians can't be wrong. The future is now for anyone in need of cannabis therapy. No more frustrating web searches for “marijuana evaluations near me.”

NuggMD will help you navigate the state's telemedicine portal and find a 420-friendly doctor to document your condition. It's the safest, hassle-free way to get legal in New York State!

NY State Medical Marijuana Laws Are Constantly Changing

With New York lawmakers duking it out in the local courts and New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker fighting to expand the patient rights and the scope of the state medical marijuana program, there's lots of breaking news to follow.

When you join NuggMD online to obtain your NY cannabis card, you'll also get access to the latest NY medical marijuana news like laws, marijuana delivery, product info and, hopefully soon, buying recreational marijuana. But if you're in need of sudden late night relief, you'll still have to search for “24 hour dispensaries near me.”

Registering for the state mmj program and getting your cannabis credentials online is as easy as A-B-C. Here's all you'll need:<

a. A NY state-issued driver's license or ID card to prove you actually reside here, and a letter from a licensed NY physician confirming that you have a medical condition treatable with cannabis products.

b. Any device that connects to, like a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

c. $199 for 12 months of access to the NYS medical marijuana program and a one-year New York medical marijuana card. If you aren't approved, you pay nothing for the process.

What Are the Qualifying Medical Conditions?

Unlike other medical marijuana friendly states, New York has set the bar high for program eligibility.You must have documented proof that you suffer from a serious ailment like cancer, Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), AIDS, HIV, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, spasticity, Huntington's disease, neuropathies, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy.

But in March, 2017 chronic pain was added to the list, allowing more pain sufferers access to this alternative medicine.

Do I Have to Register Online? Can I Do it in Person?

You can do it the easy way by joining the NuggMD family of happy, healthy cannabis patients; or you can do it the hard way by hunting for one of the very small number of licensed New York medical marijuana doctors, driving to their clinic, and waiting too long for a cursory consultation.

NuggMD's online teleconference doctor's consultation is easier, faster and more thorough. The doc sees your basic medical history via the internet and your entire consultation is devoted to prescribing the ideal cannabis products to treat your ailment(s), discussing proper usage and dosing, and answering any questions you may have.

Save yourself the time and effort and let NuggMD do the work for you!
