Qualifying for a Medical Cannabis Certification in Montana

Montana’s medical cannabis program dates back to 2004 when voters initiated the ballot measure, with 62% approving it. Since then, Montana has come up with a long list of qualifying conditions that include: 

  • Cancer 
  • Glaucoma

Additionally, the state deems that a chronic medical condition or its treatment that causes other symptoms or disorders also makes patients eligible for the medical cannabis program. Those additional conditions and symptoms include: 

  • Cachexia or wasting syndrome
  • Severe Chronic pain
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Persistent muscle spasms characteristic to those caused by multiple sclerosis 
  • Epilepsy or an intractable seizure disorder 
  • Severe intractable nausea or vomiting

Lastly, painful peripheral neuropathy, central nervous system disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or terminal illness also qualify patients for the program.

Along with having a condition, any Montana resident applying for a medical cannabis card must prove their residency with a valid driver’s license or state ID. A Montana medical cannabis card’s cost is $20, and it costs $10 to replace or update provider information. 

Get More from Your Medical Cannabis Certification in Montana

One of the biggest parts of medical cannabis is getting to understand how your body responds to different types of cannabis products and cannabinoids, to help you tailor your medical cannabis experience to your desired outcomes. Using DNA testing, we examine your specific DNA biomarkers to determine the right strains and dosage for your specific genes and metabolism. Our test kits are available for purchase on our website. This unique service is designed to maximize the potential of medicinal cannabis for each individual patient.

Medical Cannabis Program Application Process in Montana

The Montana medical cannabis program application is straightforward. All prospective patients must be at least 18-years-old and have at least one of the qualifying medical conditions. Additionally, applicants must show proof of residency with a valid copy of a state driver’s license or identification card, or Montana Tribal card.

After proving their residence, a patient must provide the state of Montana with a signed statement from the treating physician for a debilitating condition and the medical provider’s name and address.

If the Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) denies a patient’s application, Montana gives residents a second chance to apply.  All applications for annual renewal must be submitted within 30 days of the medical cannabis card expiration date.

Caregivers in Montana

Like a patient, a caregiver must prove they are a Montana resident, supplying a valid driver’s license or state ID card with their current address.  Additionally, a caregiver must not have a felony conviction to legally assist a patient.

Possession and Cultivation of Medical Marijuana in Montana

Montana updated its possession and cultivation laws in 2017, allowing a registered card holder to have 1 ounce of usable marijuana at a time. Additionally, patients who do not list a provider may cultivate up to four flowering plants and have 12 seedlings. If a cardholder does list a medical cannabis provider, they cannot cultivate their own cannabis.
