MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Consultations and medical marijuana ID cards.

PROSPECTIVE PATIENTS

Medical marijuana is a recently legalized treatment option in New York state, though it has been used medicinally by many cultures for thousands of years. The plant is made up of multiple natural compounds, including THC and CBD, which work on the endocannabinoid system of the body to decrease inflammation and manage symptoms of chronic disease. 

Healthcare providers cannot prescribe marijuana, though they can certify patients for its use. At Emergence Health, our provider is trained and certified through the New York State Medical Marijuana Program to issue Registry ID cards for medical marijuana use.

Medical marijuana consults are 30-minutes long and cost $300. During this visit, we will review your medical history and perform an assessment to determine if you qualify for medical marijuana treatment.

If you are eligible, you will need to register with the NYS Medical Marijuana Program. After being approved, the Department of State will issue you a Registry ID card which you can bring with you to a dispensary to receive medical marijuana. Registry ID cards are valid for 1 year and must be renewed with a visit prior to their expiration.
