Louisiana

Medical Marijuana Program

How do I get a Medical Marijuana Recommendation in Louisiana?

Unlike most medical marijuana states, Louisiana’s Department of Health does not issue Louisiana medical marijuana cards to patients. This is actually an advantage to patients in Louisiana, since they don’t have to undergo the sometimes lengthy state application process. It can be a bit overwhelming, and, the absence of a state website clearly outlining the process of how to get certified for medical cannabis doesn’t help. However, quickmedcards is here to get you started on becoming a lawful medical marijuana patient in LA.

So, all you need to get access to Louisiana marijuana is a recommendation from a licensed marijuana doctor in the state. And that is something we specialize in.

1. Sign up with QuickMedCards

First sign up and fill out the patient questionnaire form. Here you will be asked to inform us of your medical condition and  your current medication. Once you create your account, you will be directed to a page where you can upload your identifying documents. For instance, your Louisiana ID or Louisiana Driver’s License. Thereafter, upload your medical records (this step is optional but recommended). 

Now you can book an online marijuana evaluation with a louisiana cannabis doctor. At this point, you will see when your doctor is available. Pick out a time that’s most fitting for you. Finally, proceed to the payment page where you will pay for your appointment with your cannabis doctor. 

2. Attend your Online Marijuana Evaluation

At quickmedcards, your marijuana appointment is done through telemedicine. Therefore, you have the benefit of attending your appointment on your mobile device, tablet, or computer. So, will you video call with your doctor? Yes. We host our telemedicine appointments through Doxy. This is a simple, free and secure telehealth service. The best and safest way to video call with your doctor.

You will receive a secure link through email and text 10 minutes before your appointment. Most importantly, your mobile device, tablet, or laptop must have a camera and be connected to a stable internet connection.

Also, check that your device is ready by doing a test call through https://doxy.me/precall-test.

During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss why medical marijuana may be beneficial for your treatment and the options available to you. The appointment usually takes 10-15 minutes.

3. Receive your Louisiana Medical Marijuana Recommendation

After your appointment, you will get an email detailing whether your doctor certified you or not. If approved, your signed recommendation will be emailed to you. It usually only takes a few minutes after your appointment to receive your recommendation. Additionally, you can find your cannabis recommendation in your QuickMedCards account. This is in the ‘My MJ Recommendation’ section. You will use the signed recommendation when buying cannabis from Louisiana dispensaries. Also, our doctor will add you to the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy’s therapeutic marijuana registry as a qualified patient.

Qualifying Medical Conditions for Medical Marijuana In Louisiana

Over the years there have been several amendments to the Louisiana Medical Marijuana Act for Therapeutic use. What you need to know, however, is that a licensed physician may recommend medical marijuana for any condition they believe can be treated with cannabis. That being said, the doctor is more likely to recommend medical marijuana if you’ve been diagnosed with a debilitating condition and have not responded to traditional treatment methods.

Even so, these are the medical conditions that were previously listed for treatment with medicinal marijuana:

  • You need an official written recommendation from a marijuana doctor with a therapeutic marijuana license in Louisiana.

Where can I find medical marijuana doctors in Louisiana?

What is the cost of the Louisiana medical marijuana card?

Since the state does not issue a medical marijuana registry ID card there is no payment to the Department of Health. But, qualifying patients do pay for their  consultation and medical marijuana recommendation. This normally ranges from $180-$250. However, with QuickMedCards, patients only pay $149 for their Louisiana medical marijuana card.

Does chronic pain qualify for medical marijuana in Louisiana?

Yes. Your cannabis doctor may recommend marijuana for chronic pain if they believe it could be beneficial for your treatment. In fact, chronic pain is a very common reason many patients seek out help from our medical marijuana doctors. 

When did medical marijuana become legal in Louisiana?

Did you know that Louisiana legalized medical marijuana back in 1991 with the passing of Act No. 874? However, despite the law stating that physicians could ‘prescribe’ medicinal cannabis, access to medical marijuana was still prohibited. This is because federal law states that doctors cannot prescribe controlled substances.

Eventually, in 2016, there was an amendment to the original act replacing the word ‘prescribe’ with ‘recommend’. As a result, physicians in the state could begin to recommend medical cannabis to their patients without breaking federal law.

As a result, you do not need a doctor’s recommendation to buy, possess or use CBD in the state. Moreover, in 2019, Louisiana legislators passed House Bill 491. Subsequently, hemp and hemp-derived cannabidiol products were legalized for sale in the state.
