How to renew your Medical Marijuana card

Patients

Please note – Your medical MMJ recommendation is only valid for 1 year. After that time, you will need to be re-evaluated by one of our licensed medical MMJ doctors. However, you don’t have to worry about your license expiring. When it’s time to renew your license, you’ll receive an email from the Connecticut Medical Marijuana Program two months before your patient certification and ID card expires.

Caregivers

Important – If you are a caregiver, your Registry ID is only valid for the same period as your patient’s medical MMJ card. When your patient’s card expires, they will need to get a new certification from their doctor. After your patient has successfully renewed their med card, you will need to renew your registry card as well. You need to make sure that you have a valid Registry ID card when buying from a dispensary.

 

How to Renew:

1. Log in to your DCP patient account as a returning user

You review your personal information to make sure it is up to date. 

Please note – All information must match your Connecticut driver’s license or state-issued ID. If you have a change of address card, use that address.
To save any changes you can click ‘Renew my registration.’

2. Receive Verification Email
After you renew your registration online, you’ll get a verification email explaining the next steps.

3. Visit a Medical Marijuana Doctor
If you are a returning QuickMedCards patient, you can book a follow-up appointment to renew your certification.

If this is your first time using QuickMedCards, you need to complete our Patient Questionnaire form first.

4. Receive Your Medical Marijuana ID in the Mail
Once you’re certified by our doctor, your new card will be mailed to you at the address you listed in the patient portal. The new card will have an issue date for the day after your original card expires.

How to get Medical Marijuana in Connecticut

Reviewing and processing the application for medical marijuana card in CT can take up to 30 days. Once approved, you will receive an email containing your official medical marijuana registration certificate. 

You may choose to print out the registration certificate or to keep a digital record on your device. This will enable you to purchase medical weed in certified dispensary facilities.

When buying medical marijuana, you or your designated caregiver must remember a few things:

 

  • Bring the registration certificate with one more form of photo ID.
  • You may only obtain 2.5 oz of medical marijuana within 30 days.
  • Minor patients must be accompanied and supervised by the primary caregiver when getting their medication at a dispensary. Parents, guardians, or designated caregivers must have a valid ID when accompanying a minor.   

CT Medical Marijuana Laws

The use of marijuana for recreational purposes is still illegal in Connecticut. However, possession and use of small amounts of medical cannabis for therapeutic purposes and palliative benefits is legal for patients with a valid med card. Under Public Act 12-55, An Act Concerning the Palliative Use of Marijuana, patients suffering from relentless pain due to failing health conditions may now be able to purchase and use medical weed to alleviate their pain. But before a patient can recieve their medical marijuana card in CT, qualifying conditions must be met.

When the State of Connecticut decriminalized the use of weed for medical reasons, it established specific prohibitions and conditions to regulate its use and prevent the potential abuse of a classified ‘Schedule I drug’.

Patients suffering from severe health issues or diagnosed with the following debilitating medical condition but have not responded to conventional medication are legally protected under the Connecticut Medical Marijuana Law, and might qualify for Medical Marijuana treatment in Connecticut.
