How do I apply for my medical cannabis card?
A medical provider must recommend medical cannabis as a treatment option for one of the state qualifying conditions. Then, registration paperwork (available here) needs to be completed and submitted to the DOH Medical Cannabis Program. You’ll need a New Mexico state ID to register. Some qualifying conditions may also require current medical records.
Ultra Health has partnered with Peace Medical Cannabis Cards to make the registration process simple. Our dispensaries regularly host Peace MCC events with on-site medical recommendations and paperwork filing. Call or visit our dispensaries for more info on these events!
What conditions qualify me for a medical cannabis card in New Mexico?
A list of qualifying conditions is available on the second page of the DOH registration paperwork.
Is there a state fee required to get my medical cannabis card?
No! Any fee charged by medical cannabis recommendation doctors or clinics is a fee for your medical evaluation. If a medical professional states that you have to pay a separate state fee for your card, it’s advisable to see a different health care professional for your recommendation.
Can I use an out-of-state medical card in New Mexico?
Yes, it is currently legal for individuals with an out-of-state medical card to purchase medical cannabis while in New Mexico. Please call your local Ultra Health for more information.
How much cannabis can a New Mexico patient legally possess?
Medical cannabis patients can legally possess approximately 8 ounces of useable cannabis flower (or the THC equivalent in other forms). This is the amount that can be purchased within a 90 day period from New Mexico medical cannabis providers.
Is medical cannabis covered by Workman’s Compensation?
Yes! New Mexico Workman’s Compensation will reimburse the cost of up to 230 grams per calendar quarter (January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December) at a cost of up to $12.02 per gram. To get a printed receipt of your quarterly transactions with Ultra Health for reimbursement purposes, please email email@example.com.
What strains are best for [qualifying condition]?
Our dispensary employees are great at matching patients with strains that are likely to aid their condition or symptoms. Leafly also offers a great online resource where you can search strains by ailment. Click this link, then scroll to the bottom of the page. From there, you can search strains by effects, flavors, symptoms, and conditions. Keep in mind these are only recommendations, as people can have different personal experiences with the same strain.
What’s the difference between indica, sativa, and hybrid strains?
Indica and sativa are the two main genetic varieties of the cannabis plant, while hybrids are a genetic mix of both. Indicas tend to offer more bodily relaxation and pain relief, while sativas usually produce energizing and uplifting cerebral (brain-related) effects. It’s worth noting, however, that patients may experience different effects from a strain than what they’d expect based off its indica, sativa, or hybrid categorization.
What do I need to do in order to buy medical cannabis from Ultra Health?
You must be a registered New Mexico medical cannabis patient with a valid medical cannabis card or an individual with a medical cannabis card from another state. On your first visit to Ultra Health, bring in your medical cannabis card and your government-issued ID. You’ll need to fill out some basic patient paperwork before you can purchase medicine. For visits after that, you’ll only need to bring your medical cannabis card.
