How to Get a Medical Cannabis Card In Reno Nevada?

Follow the following four steps and receive your medical cannabis card by just sitting at home.

Fill out a simple form

Provide your personal and medical details by filling out a simple form on our website. Our website is HIPAA-compliant, so all your personal information is kept safe, so you need not worry.

Create a DPHB account

You need to register with the medical marijuana patient cardholder registry in order to move forward. Here, you need to download the acknowledgement and waiver forms from the provided link and then email them to us; our doctor will sign and return them.

Register with the state

You need to provide the doctor’s signed acknowledgement and waiver forms by registering on the state website and paying a $50 state fee for a one-year validity card. If you want a two-year validity card, then you will have to pay a $100 state fee.

Visit the dispensary

You will receive a temporary approval letter from the state, which you can download and use to purchase marijuana from the state-licensed dispensary that same day. You will receive your official medical marijuana card in 7–10 days from the state via email.

Reno Medical Marijuana Card Benefits

A medical marijuana card comes with several benefits, even if you live in a state where recreational marijuana is legal.

Lower age restrictions

For recreational purposes, patients who are 21 years old can access marijuana, but with certain possession restrictions. When you are a medical marijuana patient, you have the freedom to possess more marijuana as compared to recreational users and are subject to fewer limitations.

Greater Choice

Owning a medical marijuana card gives you the freedom to shop for marijuana at any dispensary in your state. You get a choice to choose from different potent products and flexibility to compare costs and find out the best offers.

Enhanced Protection

In some states where cannabis is legal for recreational use, employers, landlords, and family courts are still allowed to discriminate against cannabis users. Getting a medical marijuana recommendation entitles you to official documentation demonstrating that your use of marijuana for medical purposes is justified. This can protect you from punitive or discriminatory actions in many states.

Lower Taxes

With a medical marijuana card, you will be exempt from the sales or excise taxes that are applied to recreational marijuana purchases. When you are a medical marijuana patient, you will save 10% on every marijuana purchase.

To apply for your medical card, you should reside in Reno and provide identification that proves your residency, such as utility bills or a driver’s license. Minors under 18 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian register as their caregiver; otherwise, there is no age restriction.
