I did my renewal with them because it was so quick and easy the first time. The best place to get a medical marijuana card.

LeafWell representatives were outstanding, expeditious and thorough. Leafwell made renewing my card both convenient and affordable. Thank you for all your assistance and for being consummate pros.

Quick and easy! I was in pain, so extremely happy about the prompt response and action.

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

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.

Responsive and helpful professionals with a seamless process.

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.

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

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