Step 1. Meet With A Physician. First, make an appointment with your physician. Only a physician can initiate your application by certifying that you are a patient with a qualifying condition with Department of Consumer Protection. In addition to having a qualifying condition, you must be a resident of Connecticut. Your physician will register you as a patient using a valid email address. Please note that if you do not have an email address, you will need to create one to complete the registration process.

Step 2. Complete State Application. Once your physician has certified you, you will need to complete the application on the State of CT’s website, – Instructions for completing the application will be emailed to you from [email protected] once you have been successfully certified. You may ask the Dispensary Facility of your choice for assistance with application process. Thames Valley Relief is happy to help patients complete and submit their applications on a walk-in basis during business hours.

Step 3. Schedule Patient Orientation. You will receive an email from [email protected] upon approval with the subject line, “Patient Approved.” When you receive your Temporary Registration Certificate via email, please call the Dispensary Facility to schedule your Orientation Appointment. The Orientation Appointment includes a complimentary, private consultation with a Pharmacist and your first purchase.

  • Renewal

    To renew your Medical Marijuana Card you need to visit a Certifying Physician or APRN. The provider you choose will re-certify you by entering your information into BIZNET again. Once you complete this step with your provider, you are required to complete your application on BIZNET. The documents and fees required are the same for both new applicants and renewal applicants. The Medical Marijuana Program will only allow your certifying physician or provider to enter you for renewal 30 days or less before your expiration date.

    If you are a patient paying with a debit or credit card through BIZNET without a name change, an email change or a caregiver, you may be eligible for instant approval once the payment is processed. This change was made by the Medical Marijuana Program to streamline the process for renewal applicants by reducing the processing time.

    If you are a patient who is paying by check or money order, a patient with a caregiver, a patient with a name change or email change, you will have to wait for your application to be reviewed by the Medical Marijuana Program. The Medical Marijuana Program may take up to 30 Business Days to process an application.

  • Application Checklist

    Please use the Application Checklist to prepare you for completing the application for the first time. The checklist will ensure you have all of the documents you need and the correct method of payment to complete the application during your visit to the dispensary facility or from home.

    Please note: If you are using the application checklist to prepare for a renewal application, you do not need to create and activate a BIZNET account if you are using the same email as the year prior.

    Your registration lasts for exactly one year starting on the day the physician or nurse practitioner of your choice certifies you as a patient with a qualifying condition.

    Please plan on completing your application on the same day as certification OR as soon as possible to get the most time out of the year of certification you are paying for.

  • What is a Caregiver?

    In Connecticut’s Medical Marijuana Program, a Caregiver is someone who will help the patient manage their well-being in regard to their use of Medical Marijuana. The Caregiver must be 18 years or older and not have any convictions pertaining to the illegal sale, manufacture, or distribution of a controlled substance. If the caregiver is approved, they may visit the dispensary facility with the patient and/or pickup medications on the patient’s behalf.

    Adding a caregiver can only be initiated by your certifying physician or nurse practitioner. The Caregiver will be responsible for completing a separate application with a registration fee of $25.

    For more information, please use the Caregiver Quick Reference Card
