How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in New Jersey: Your Step-by-Step Process
With Elevate Holistics, getting your New Jersey medical marijuana cards is one of the easiest things you’ll do all day. Our process is entirely online, with appointments taking less than 30 minutes overall. Plus, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your bed or couch.
Below, we’ve broken down the simple three-step process of getting your New Jersey medical marijuana card online.
Meet With an MMJ Doctor (Like Us!)
The first step to getting your medical marijuana card is to get approval from a licensed doctor. And, if you don’t know where to find a qualified marijuana doctor, now you do.
With Elevate Holistics, you can schedule an appointment with our expert NJ MMJ doctors, and they will see whether or not you qualify for medical cannabis in New Jersey. Our doctors’ appointments are completely HIPAA-compliant and take less than half an hour to complete.
Get Approved and Register With the State
After verifying that you meet the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission Medicinal Cannabis Program (NJMPC, for short) requirements, your doctor will provide you with a patient reference number that you will use to log into the state’s online portal.
Once you’ve logged in and created an account, you will need to provide a photograph, proof of New Jersey residence, and proof of identification as part of your application. You’ll need an unexpired driver’s license or government-issued ID from the state of New Jersey for your proof of identification.
After you have submitted these required documents, your application will be sent to the board for further review. They will follow up with you via email after they have reviewed your application.
Get Your MMJ Card and Start Shopping!
If your application is approved, you will then be emailed a link to go back to the online portal and pay the registration fee. Once this step is complete, you will receive your medical marijuana card and can start purchasing the cannabis products that you need! It really is that easy.
New Jersey Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions
In order to get your New Jersey medical marijuana card, you must have one of the qualifying medical conditions approved by the medicinal marijuana program.

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 New Jersey?
The process of getting your medical marijuana card in New Jersey typically takes less than two months. At Elevate Holistics, your initial online consultation only takes 30 minutes, after which you will immediately be able to log on and complete the first part of your application.
After the first part of your application has been submitted, the NJMMP program will review it and get back to you. This process can take up to 30 days but may be completed faster depending on the volume of applications they are currently processing.
Once your application is approved, they will mail you your new medical card in seven to 10 days.

Can Minors Get Medical Cards in New Jersey?
Yes, those who are under the age of 18 are allowed to get New Jersey medical marijuana cards! However, they cannot do so on their own: they must have a designated caregiver (usually a parent or guardian) register on their behalf.
The caregiver will also visit dispensaries, purchase products, and even administer the products if need be.
Unfortunately, we do not offer minor appointments in New Jersey at this time.

Caregivers will need to go through the same approval process that a patient would on the NJMMP website, which is the state of NJ’s site. The patient will need to get certified by a medical marijuana doctor, and then the caregiver will complete the rest of the process to get the card.
The current New Jersey cannabis laws state that medical marijuana patients or caregivers can purchase up to two ounces of cannabis in a 30-day period, based on provider recommendations.
However, New Jersey law doesn’t currently have any possession limits for medical marijuana patients, meaning that you can technically possess more than two ounces at a time if you have not exceeded your purchase limits.
