How to Get a Card for Medical Marijuana in NY

Getting your New York medical marijuana card online has never been easier than with Elevate Holistics. Our three-step process is straightforward, quick, and 100% online — you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your couch.

Below, we’re walking you through the three steps to take in order to get your New York medical marijuana card online or in person.

Step 1:

Meet With an MMJ Doctor (Like Us!)

Elevate Holistics has a team of certified MMJ doctors who can help you get your NY MMJ card over the phone or computer. Our doctors have been working with NY medical marijuana patients for years, and they offer the expertise you need to get your card effortlessly. 

Once you book an appointment, you will have your telehealth appointment to see whether or not you qualify.

Step 2:

Get Approved and Register With the State

If the doctor determines that you are eligible, the next step to get your New York medical marijuana card is to go to my.ny.gov and create an account. 

You can then go to the “Health Applications” section, where you will upload your certification and answer some questions about yourself. If you need a caregiver, you can designate up to 2 at any time during the process.

Step 3:

Get Your MMJ Card and Start Shopping!

Once you have been approved, the NY state government will issue you a temporary ID. Then, you’ll receive your official New York medical marijuana card in the mail and you can start shopping for MMJ at your local dispensaries.

The Benefits of Getting a Medical Marijuana Card in New York


Access to Top-Shelf Marijuana at Low Prices

Weed may be fully legal in NY, but that doesn’t mean that recreational is better than medical; in fact, it tends to be the opposite. With a medical marijuana card, you gain access to the highest-quality cannabis products at the lowest prices. You don’t have to pay nearly as much in taxes, and you’re always prioritized in terms of service and products. So, if you want to save some money, an NY MMJ card renewal is the way to go.


State Reciprocity

New York allows for out-of-state cardholders to visit and purchase from local dispensaries. With your NY MMJ card, you, too, can travel to different states and purchase products using your medical card. So, whether you’re on vacation or visiting family, you always have access to your medicine when you renew your NY medical marijuana card.


Legal Protection

New York medical marijuana card renewal keeps you on the safer side of the law. If you encounter a law enforcement officer while having amounts within the possession limit, you can show them your card to indicate that you have an active registration with the NY DOH.

Your card is an indication that you have the right to possess, transport, and consume marijuana within NY.
