Qualify for Medical Cannabis in Fresno, California

Fresno has had many teething troubles with regards to establishing a proper and functioning cannabis industry infrastructure. Fresno is looking to avoid many of the issues that LA had to deal with when cannabis was legalized in 2018, as well as the many tax issues that have arisen in the newly-legalized cannabis industry. Hopefully, counties like Fresno will start to develop workable policies that will prevent the black market from flourishing and the legal industry being stifled. Fresno mostly voted “No” on Proposition 64, so it is no surprise that the county has been slow to take to the cannabis industry.

In the meantime, you can qualify for a medical marijuana card and physician’s recommendation by going to “Get a Rec” button, where you’ll be taken to our Medical Card page. Click on the “Get A Rec” button, and you’ll be taken to our virtual clinic and asked to input your name and email address and create a password. Once you’ve done this, you will need to take a profile picture and fill out a quick 1-minute questionnaire. Once your profile has been created, you will be seen by a doctor online within a few minutes.

All you need in order to speak to one of the doctors on Leafwell and qualify for a medical cannabis card in Fresno is the following:

  • An internet connection.
  • A valid email address.
  • A laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet with a working camera, microphone and speakers so you can see and hear the doctor and vice-versa.
  • 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.
