How Much is The Cost of Medical Marijuana Card in NY?

Does getting a medical marijuana card (MMJ) cost a lot?


Several factors need to be considered to calculate the cost of an NYS medical marijuana card, such as the type of card you need and whether you are a new user or renewing your card.



The following article will explain how the application process for a medical marijuana card in New York is carried out.


Is there any cost included in the cost of obtaining a medical marijuana card?


Commonly, costs vary from state to state, so in New York. To begin with, a fee is associated with a medical marijuana consultation, where you will meet with a doctor and receive a medical marijuana certificate.


Visit the doctor


It is important to know that if you go in person to see a physician, the cost of the visit will vary based on the provider.



Regarding the payment of a physician’s visits, some facilities charge a flat fee, while others charge based on a patient’s condition and the degree of complexity involved in the treatment.



With our service, you may be eligible for a medical marijuana card. If your application for a medical cannabis certificate is denied, we will not charge you for the time spent with your doctor.



However, if we approve you and your state application is rejected, your state application fee is usually non-refundable. 



Costs are associated with doctors’ visits in different conditions. There are no differences in our fees, regardless of your medical condition.



Depending on the state, we charge between $49 and $199 for adults and slightly more for minors, who typically need to be certified by several healthcare providers. 



It is important to remember that we don’t charge you if your healthcare provider doesn’t approve you for medical cannabis.


The state’s fees


Now in New York, there is no state registration fees and the issuance of physical cards. Instead, certifying providers will automatically register patients, who then receive a scannable certificate, replacing the traditional ID card.


Medical Marijuana Card Additional Costs


Medical marijuana itself will be the most expensive additional cost. Licensed dispensaries are the only place you can purchase medical cannabis products and pick them up or have them delivered. Additionally, you will be responsible for any follow-up medical appointments. 



The cost will vary depending on which strain you use and how you consume medical marijuana. You can choose from edibles, topicals, oils, and smokable cannabis products. Depending on your location, each of these products will cost you differently. 



The following is an estimate of the cost of different medical marijuana products:



  • A gram of smoking buds costs between $5 and $20.
  • The cost of a vape pen ranges from $25 to $100.
  • In the case of marijuana edibles, the price ranges from $2 to $5 per dose (for example, $20 to $50 for a bottle of ten marijuana gummies).
  • Depending on the potency and brand, tinctures can cost between $20 and $50 per bottle.
  • Cannabis concentrates, such as hash, oils, and waxes, cost between $25 and $55.



A licensed dispensary is the only place to purchase quality and safe medical marijuana products. 


The cost of renewing a medical card in NY


Getting a recommendation and renewing a state medical license are both online processes. 



For your renewal fee through us, you would be required to pay the same amount as the initial consultation fee, which is $149. 



To maintain your MMJ eligibility, you must renew your card a month before it expires. Your MMJ card can be renewed similarly to getting a recommendation letter.
