How to Get a Georgia Marijuana Card
Is Medical Marijuana Legal in Georgia?
Georgia patients seeking legal access to medical marijuana have faced plenty of hurdles since Haliegh’s Hope Act was passed in 2015. But legislation that took effect on July 1, 2021, allowed regulators to grant cultivation licenses to six companies that will soon be growing cannabis plants, processing medical marijuana products, and offering them at dispensaries across the state!
Getting a Georgia marijuana card gives you legal protection now. Soon, it will be your ticket into state licensed dispensaries where you can safely purchase high-quality, Georgia-grown, locally manufactured cannabis oil.
Card-carrying cannabis patients will be some of the first to benefit from future marijuana reform. Meanwhile, our team at Georgia Marijuana Card is here to help with each step of your medical marijuana journey.
How Can I Qualify for a Medical Marijuana Card in Georgia
In order to qualify for a Georgia Medical Marijuana Card so you can legally possess low-THC cannabis oil, you must either be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition, or you must be the caregiver of someone who has been diagnosed with a qualifying condition.
Additionally, you must be able to prove that you’re a Georgia resident at the time you apply.
After obtaining an official diagnosis, patients and caregivers must consult with a compassionate Georgia physician who is willing to recommend low-THC oil as a potential treatment option. That’s where we come in to help!
After reviewing your medical records and performing an exam, a compassionate physician from Georgia Marijuana Card will forward an official recommendation form to the state health department along with the registration fee.
Within 15 days of submission, the public health department will arrange for newly registered medical marijuana patients or caregivers to pick up cards at one of 20 locations throughout the state.

How to Get Approved for a Georgia Medical Marijuana Card
If you have previously been diagnosed with a qualifying condition, or believe you currently suffer from one, you are most-likely eligible for a Georgia medical marijuana card. Likewise, if you are the parent or legal guardian for an adult or a child with a qualifying condition, you’re also eligible to join Georgia’s medical marijuana registry.
The next step in the process is to find a compassionate doctor to review your condition, and, if appropriate, recommend marijuana as part of your treatment plan.
In some cases, you may have a longstanding relationship with your referring physician. However, in many cases, cannabis oil referrals come from practitioners who have a particular appreciation for using integrative therapies to enhance quality of life.
Georgia Marijuana Card can help by connecting you with a physician who is willing to review your case and make a referral. Once you’ve scheduled your evaluation, Georgia Marijuana Card can also help by making sure all paperwork is completed and submitted seamlessly to the Georgia health department, along with your registration fee.
Finally, we provide ongoing support when it comes to renewing your Georgia medical marijuana card, locating dispensaries as soon as they are open, and staying up-to-date on the latest medical marijuana developments in Georgia.
What Information and Forms Are Required When a Patient Applies for a Medical Marijuana ID Card?
In Georgia, your doctor will complete a formal recommendation form. However, in order to ensure that your evaluation goes as smoothly and successfully as possible, please bring the following items to your appointment:
A copy of your Georgia driver’s license or other state-issued ID
$25 application fee
Detailed copies of your medical records, including test results, diagnoses, and prescriptions
Am I Guaranteed to Get Approved for Medical Marijuana After Visiting Your Office?
Approval is ultimately granted at your doctor’s discretion, so we can make no guarantees that you will qualify. However, bringing as much information about your medical history as possible to your medical marijuana evaluation will greatly increase the chances that you will be approved.
Why Get a Georgia Medical Marijuana Card?
If you currently suffer from one or more of the qualifying conditions, we strongly suggest that you initiate your treatment regimen under the supervision of a physician who has the training, compassion, and belief in the medicinal qualities inherent in cannabis.
At Georgia Marijuana Card, all of our doctors are not only licensed under the State of Georgia but also have taken additional continuing medical education cannabis courses to ensure that they have critical and recent information related to the therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana.
We also believe that any medical marijuana products should be purchased from a Georgia licensed dispensary. The Georgia Department of Public Health supports the use of low-THC cannabis oil as a low risk and successful method of treatment for any one or more of the qualifying conditions. With your Georgia Medical Marijuana card in hand, you'll be able to access all Georgia dispensaries and purchase medical marijuana once it’s available.
Patient Product Confidence
Each licensed Georgia Dispensary will have top-quality low-THC cannabis oil produced in alignment with strict seed-to-sale quality standards with a safe, clean, and secure Georgia production facility.
Your Georgia marijuana card makes it easy for you to demonstrate to law enforcement that you are officially registered with the department of health and thereby allowed to possess, transport, and consume medical marijuana products.
Access to Other States
A Georgia Marijuana Card allows you to possess and, eventually, purchase low-THC oil anywhere in Georgia. However, it also has reciprocity within states that have similar medical marijuana laws.
