More Info

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 advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) can certify patients, if they choose.

Ask your MN licensed healthcare provider if they can certify you for the program. If they are unable to certify you at this time, click on the button below for a list of publicly certifying medical professionals who are qualified to assist you. With the consent of each provider, Green Goods created the following list of healthcare systems and clinics that are currently certifying patients for medical cannabis. Several of these providers offer both virtual and in-person options.

Once certified, you will receive an email with instructions on how to apply to the Minnesota medical cannabis program.

  • Patients will need to fill out an application and upload a copy of their State Photo ID.
  • Patients are no longer required to pay an annual fee, as of July 1, 2023.
  • Patients will have to wait up to 30 days for approval.  If no approval has been provided after 30 days, call the Office of Medical Cannabis at 844-879-3381.
