FAQ

How do I register as a patient?

Here are detailed instructions for registering online.

If you are a patient seeking to register with the Department’s Medical Marijuana Program you must submit to the Department:

  • Proof of Connecticut residency ( see examples )
  • $100.00 registration fee (checks/money orders should be made payable to "Treasurer, State of CT")

You will be able to upload these documents and pay the fee when you submit your registration application online.

 

Register Your Primary Caregiver, if Applicable

  • If your physician certification indicates a need for you to have a primary caregiver, you must register a qualified caregiver before the Department will issue you a registration certificate. There is a $25 fee for this process.The Department will not register a patient who needs a primary caregiver until the caregiver’s application is completed and approved. Here are detailed instructions for the caregiver registration process.

 

Renewal

Qualifying patient registrations will be valid up to one year from the date of the physician written certification. Before your card expires, the registration system will allow you and your doctor to begin the renewal process. The earliest a patient can be recertified is 30 days before the expiration date of the current registration.
