How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Michigan: Your Step-by-Step Process
With Elevate Holistics, getting a Michigan medical marijuana card is as easy as 1, 2, 3. With our telehealth platform and expert cannabis doctors, you can get your medical recommendation right from home.
Below, we’ve outlined the three easy steps to take toward getting your Michigan medical marijuana card online (or in person).
Meet With an MMJ Doctor (Like Us!)
The first step toward getting your Michigan medical marijuana card is meeting with a certified MMJ doctor. Now, finding an affordable, professional MMJ doctor in your area may not be the easiest option; but, that’s exactly why we’re here.
Elevate Holistics has a qualified team of Michigan medical marijuana doctors who are well-versed in the world of MMJ. Our doctors will work with you one-on-one — over the phone or computer — to see whether or not you qualify for medical cannabis in the state.
Our appointments last less than 30 minutes, too, so there’s no disruption to your busy schedule.
Get Approved and Register With the State
During your doctor’s appointment, your physician will analyze you and see whether or not you qualify for medical marijuana in Michigan. If you do, you’ll get approved and receive the physician certification you need to register with the state.
Next, you’ll head on over to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) website to apply with the state. Here, you’ll provide your physician’s certification, proof of residency, and your $40 application fee.
Get Your MMJ Card and Start Shopping!
Once you’ve sent in your information, you will receive your medical marijuana card within 4-6 weeks. However, you’re legally able to possess MMJ 21 days from the date the state program receives your application and deposits your application fee.
Michigan Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions
Michigan has a list of qualifying conditions required for a medical marijuana card. Those conditions are the following:
- Cachexia or Wasting Syndrome
- Severe and Chronic Pain
- Severe Nausea
- Severe and Persistent Muscle Spasms
Once again, you only need to have one of the above medical conditions to qualify for a MI MMJ card. And, if you’re worried about qualifying, don’t be! That’s what Elevate Holistics is here for. We’ll help you get your medical card, even if you’re unsure you qualify.
We are a team who believes in the medical benefits of cannabis; but, we’re also keenly aware that a large percentage of the population doesn’t know where to start on their cannabis journey. This is why we promise to treat every patient with respect, compassion, and love.
We’re all on our own journey and we promise to respect yours.
How Long Does It Take To Get a Card in
Sometimes, getting your Michigan medical marijuana card can take time. Patients may find themselves waiting between 4-6 weeks for their card. If you don’t get your card after 8 weeks, it’s recommended to reach out to the MMMP and see what’s going on.
Thankfully, you’re legally allowed to possess and purchase MMJ three weeks (21 days) after the state accepts your application.

Can Minors Get Medical Cards in Michigan?
Yes, if you’re under 18, you can still get an MMJ card, but you’ll need a caregiver to complete the registration process, purchase cannabis, and so forth.
Typically, for minors, caregivers tend to be a parent or guardian. The registration process is pretty identical for minors as it is for adults, however, the caregiver will be the one filling out the information and registering on their behalf.
Unfortunately, Elevate Holistics doesn’t currently offer appointments for minors in the state of Michigan.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, both recreational and medical cannabis are legal in Michigan currently. Michigan first legalized medical cannabis way back in 2008, and then a decade later, the state legalized recreational weed for adults 21 and older.
To apply for a Michigan medical marijuana card, you’ll need a few different documents to prove legitimacy. First, you will need to fill out and complete the state’s application form.
You’ll also need a Physician Certification Form — which is in the Application packet. This is the form your doctor will fill out to certify that you have a qualifying medical condition.
Michigan also requires proof of MI residency. This can be a copy of your valid Michigan driver’s license OR your valid Michigan voter registration. (Keep in mind that if you use your voter registration, you’ll also have to submit proof of identity through any government-issued document demonstrating your name and date of birth.)
There are plenty of reasons that people choose to get a Michigan medical marijuana card. Primarily, though, having a medical card allows for various benefits that adult-use cannabis simply doesn’t offer.
For example, MMJ is going to cost you much less, as patients only have to pay a 6% sales tax for their product, while recreational consumers are subject to a 10% excise tax on top of the 6% sales tax. This makes adult-use cannabis much more expensive than MMJ.
Luckily for you, a Michigan medical marijuana card isn’t going to break the bank. The application fee for the card itself is only $40. Your doctor’s appointment will vary depending on where you go, but places like Elevate Holistics offer our services at low, affordable rates. You can book a first-time appointment for $105, or for $95 if you’re on Medicare or are a veteran.
Yes, you can! Medical marijuana caregivers must be at least 21 years old and have never been convicted of any violent or drug-related felonies. Along with this, primary caregivers cannot have committed any felonies within the last ten years.
To become a caregiver yourself, you must meet MI’s requirements. From there, a patient has to submit either a complete Application Packet or a complete Add or Change Caregiver Form that designates you as their caregiver.
Along with this, you’ll present your valid state ID or personal ID card to prove identification. Then, you’ll wait for approval!
If you have a Michigan medical marijuana card, then you can possess up to 10 ounces of cannabis at one time.
Recreational consumers can only possess up to 2.5 ounces, with no more than 15 of those grams being cannabis concentrates.

Growing medical marijuana in Michigan is also legal for both medical and recreational consumers. Medical patients can cultivate and harvest from up to 12 cannabis plants in their homes.
Recreational consumers can grow up to 12 plants at once; however, you cannot cultivate more than 10 ounces at home. Both recreational and medical consumers must keep their plants in locked, enclosed spaces inaccessible to the public or minors.
Unfortunately, no, Michigan doesn’t offer medical marijuana reciprocity.
