How To Become a Medical Cannabis Patient in Vermont
Welcome. We’re here to help you get safe access to responsibly grown medical cannabis. The State of Vermont has established some very specific guidelines on who can use medical cannabis and what you need to do to be approved. Here’s what you need to know.
Consult Your Health Care Professional
Work with your health care professional to see if medical cannabis might be right for you. You need to be an established patient for at least three months, receive written approval, be a resident of Vermont, and suffer from an approved medical condition. Those conditions include cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, HIV, AIDS, terminal illness, or a disease/condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the following symptoms: cachexia or wasting syndrome; chronic pain; severe nausea; or seizures.
Register With The State Of Vermont
You’ll need to complete an application to become a registered patient with the Vermont Marijuana Registry. It takes about 30 days to process an application, and you’ll need to pay a $50 application fee. Once approved, your registration is good for one year.
As a registered medical patient, you can shop at any dispensary in the state of Vermont. We currently have three convenient locations for your choosing: CeresMED – South Burlington, CeresMED South – Brattleboro, and CeresMED South – Middlebury.
Make an Appointment or Drop-In
Once you’re approved, we like new patients to set-up initial consultations to get their medical cannabis and learn about our product selection. After your first visit, you are welcome to make an appointment or drop-in. Make an appointment now.
