See what patients say about Leafwell

The process was quick, easy, and effortless

Leafwell was able to get me online with a doctor, the first step I needed to do to acquire my MMIC from the state. Their doctor was so patient and helped me write down the other steps I needed to take to get my medicine exempt from taxes.

Leafwell was phenomenal! I needed my recommendation again so I could purchase more clones and leafwell helped me accomplish my renewal with ease. Maybe took a total of 20 minutes and they had a downloadable copy of my rec in my inbox as soon as we finished.

Responsive and helpful professionals with a seamless process.

Wow! I am grateful for this service. My recommendation was expiring today and I was amazed to find out I could meet the Dr. Online and speak with him directly for my renewal evaluation. My recommendation is in the mail. Thank you.

Reliable, fast, and easy process. Very pleased with my experience.

Great service! Thank you for supporting the medical marijuana community.

I was speaking to doctor, who was extremely easy to talk to, within minutes of accessing the website. Getting a download of my rec. took about the same amount of time. I’d recommend LeafWell to all seeking a medical marijuana rec.

Excellent fast service in our time of need. Staff was very helpful and attentive to our needs! Thank you
