Find a Medical Marijuana Doctor in Alameda, California

When it comes to the cannabis industry in California, few counties have been as supportive as Alameda. From cultivation licenses through to distribution, Alameda is playing a major role in shaping what the industry will look like in the future. This is good news for medical cannabis patients in Alameda, as it hopefully means that the local law enforcement and politicians are likely to be more “hands-off” when dealing with those who need medical cannabis.

However, just because Alameda is comparatively friendly towards the cannabis industry, it doesn’t mean there still aren’t significant difficulties. Cannabis enthusiasts of both the recreational and medical variety are still hit with high taxes, and there is still much confusion concerning where cannabis-focused industries can operate. For those who suffer from a qualifying condition (e.g. cancer, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s, chronic pain, depression), getting a MMJ card is still worth it.

All you need in order to speak to one of Leafwell’s physicians and to potentially qualify for medical cannabis in Alameda, California is the following:

  • An internet connection.
  • A laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet with a working camera, microphone and speakers so you can see and hear the doctor and vice-versa.
  • Go to our Medical Card page and click on the “Get a Rec” button.
  • You’ll be taken to a site where you can set up a patient profile. You’ll need to give a valid email address and a password.
  • Fill out the questionnaire.
  • Photographic ID (e.g. driver’s licence, passport).
  • Proof of California residency (e.g. utility bill, bank statement, rental/mortgage agreement).
  • Ideal but not necessary: medical notes/records detailing your condition.
    We recommend getting both a recommendation and medical marijuana identification card (MMIC) – no MMIC means no money off the sales tax portion of the total cost of any cannabinoid-based products you buy.
