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.

Select Us As Your Dispensary

Under Vermont law, you must choose one designated dispensary from the Dispensary Selection Form. We currently have four locations to choose from: CeresMED-Burlington, CeresMED-South Burlington, CeresMED South-Brattleboro, and CeresMED South-Middlebury. All of our dispensaries feature the same great products and expert advice.
