I believe this is 3 years consecutive, I've never had an issue with this medical card supplier. Would recommend it to anybody who feels cannabis can suit their medicinal needs, a genuine five stars.

Moreover, seeds and immature plants for home cultivation are also available for sale to certified patients or their designated caregivers at some registered organizations dispensing locations. 

It’s important to note that possession limits may vary based on the specific needs and treatment plans determined by the healthcare provider during the certification process. 

Cultivation and responsible use of medical cannabis in New York

As of October 5, 2022, certified patients and designated caregivers aged 21 or older, registered with the Medical Cannabis Program, have the option to cultivate cannabis at home for personal use in New York.

Here are the key details:

  • Certified patients can designate only one caregiver to grow cannabis on their behalf.
  • Cultivation is limited to the private residence of the certified patient or designated caregiver. This can include owned or rented residences but excludes locations like assisted living facilities or rehabilitation centers.
  • A certified patient is allowed to cultivate, harvest, and dry a maximum of 3 mature and 3 immature plants.
  • In a shared residence with two or more certified patients, the collective cultivation limit is capped at 6 mature female plants and 6 immature female plants for the entire household.

It’s imperative for patients and caregivers to adhere to these regulations to ensure responsible and legal use of medical cannabis in New York. Dr.Weedy supports and promotes compliance with these guidelines for the safety and well-being of our patients.
