Louisiana Marijuana Card Helps Qualifying Patients Get Medical Marijuana Recommendation


Medical marijuana is legal for qualifying patients in Louisiana, but getting a recommendation from a certified physician can feel like a barrier for some patients in need. To qualify for a medical marijuana recommendation and legally purchase medical marijuana from dispensaries in Louisiana, patients must be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition and have an official written certification from a Louisiana physician. Louisiana Marijuana Card may be able to help—schedule an appointment using code MNO21 for $20 off an evaluation by a physician.


How to Qualify

Under Louisiana law, doctors can recommend medical marijuana for patients experiencing any medical condition they feel will benefit from medical marijuana treatment, including chronic pain, ALS, cancer, glaucoma, PTSD, Alzheimer’s disease, and much more. Through telemedicine appointments, Louisiana Marijuana Card enables patients to connect with certified Louisiana physicians from the safety and comfort of home. All appointments are conducted through a safe, HIPAA-compliant telemedicine platform, and patients can connect from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop for a secure video conference with one of the certified physicians.

After an evaluation, patients who receive an approval from the physician will have their recommendation entered into the state’s medical marijuana registry. They will then be able to legally purchase medical marijuana from a local dispensary.


How Can I Benefit from Medical Marijuana?

Medical marijuana can help you feel your best through supporting management of a variety of conditions and symptoms.

John B., a disabled Iraq War Veteran diagnosed with PTSD says, “I can finally sleep through the night again, as well as get through my days with far less pain and anxiety.” He has been thrilled with the success of his treatments, adding, “I’ve successfully replaced the majority of my prescription pills with a simple THC tincture.”
