Before coming out to see us, be certain you have your MMMP card (medical marijuana card) and additional photo ID.

The receptionist will ask to see your MMMP card and additional photo ID. You will be given a patient profile form to complete while the receptionist scans your cards into the system. You can also click here to be able to print and complete this form prior to your visit.

After your information has been quickly input, a knowledgeable consultant will greet you in the lobby and lead you into our product room. They will assist you by understanding your previous experience with cannabis, answering questions about the products and the method of use you prefer, and address any other concerns you might have. We will also keep private and secure records of your preferences and purchases so that your next visit becomes more streamlined.
