Q: How do I obtain my medical marijuana card?

A: In order to be placed in the registry and to receive a registry identification card, an adult applicant must reside in Colorado and submit an application form supplied by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

The adult applicant must do all of the following in order to satisfy the application process:

      • Certification must be obtained from a physician licensed in Colorado verifying diagnosis of a debilitating condition which may be alleviated by the medical use of marijuana.
      • A completed application form with a physician certification form (or other documentation provided by the physician) and a non-refundable $35 application fee must be sent via certified mail with return receipt requested to:

Application Processing Registry

Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment


Cherry Creek Drive South

      • Payment by check or money order must be made payable to CDPHE. Do not send cash.
      • A return receipt is required by The Clinic to prove that the state has received your physician’s recommendation and application.

The registry will verify the licensure status of the physician and will contact the physician to verify the certification. Verifications will occur within 30 days of receipt of the application. The registry will mail the patient and his/her primary caregiver (if applicable) medical marijuana registry identification cards within 5 days after verification.


Under Colorado state law, patients with temporary paperwork can only purchase medical marijuana if they are 1) a new Colorado mmj registry patient, and 2) are within 35 days of the date on the stamped return receipt from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. Patients who are in the process of renewing their Colorado mmj registry license may not purchase medication with temporary paper under any circumstance.

In lieu of this law, we strongly recommend that you begin your renewal process 45 to 60 days prior to date that your current medical marijuana license expires, so you can avoid a lapse in your license and ability to receive medical marijuana at our dispensaries.
