Patients need to have a qualifying condition and register with Minnesota’s Department of Health, Office of Medical Cannabis. Any Minnesota licensed physician, physician assistant (PA) or an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) can certify patients, if they choose.

Some locations do not accept insurance and are cash only. 

Virtual providers are also available below to accommodate both in-person and virtual visits.
