Since medical marijuana is new to Illinois, there are several steps that you need to complete before you are eligible to legally acquire your medicinal marijuana from our licensed dispensary. It may take some time to get your medical condition approved for treatment using cannabis, so the earlier you start the process, the sooner you can get the medical marijuana help you deserve.
In order to qualify for a license to use and purchase medical marijuana you must:
- Be 18 years of age or older (minors need two physician recommendations as well as consent from their legal guardian),
- Be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition – click here to see a list of qualifying medical conditions,
- Have consent from a physician,
- Be an Illinois state resident with proof of residency.
