Patients and Caregivers
To buy Etain products, you need to join New York's medical marijuana program. Luckily, it's pretty simple.
People diagnosed with one of the following conditions—and whom experience clinically associated symptoms—may qualify for treatment involving medical marijuana:
If you are unsure whether you qualify, speak to your doctor or contact the New York State Department of Health.
To become certified under the program, you first need a physician who is registered with the NYS Medical Marijuana Program. They are the only ones allowed to prescribe Etain products.
Once you have found a registered physician, they need to diagnose the condition (and associated symptoms) and submit it to the program.
A preliminary list of registered doctors who can recommend medical marijuana in New York can be found with the Department of Health.
To register with the NYS Medical Marijuana Program and obtain the associated Registry ID card, you must apply via the Department of Health.
Applications for an ID card will be reviewed by the Department of Health within thirty (30) days of receipt.
Certified and registered patients may specify up to two caregivers to assist in accessing and administering medical marijuana treatments.
Designated caregivers must apply for a Registry ID card in order to assist patients with medical marijuana treatment.
Registered caregivers may not be actively caring for more than five Registered Patients at a time.
Remember: both the Patient Certification and Registry ID card are valid for up to one year from the original date of your doctor’s certification (except in the case of terminal illness). Be sure to check the expiration date on both documents!
Prior to the expiration date of your Registry ID card ask your doctor for an updated recommendation. This updated recommendation will automatically be linked to your Registry ID card and will be valid for one year.
Contact your doctor for an updated recommendation and re-apply with the Department of Health for a new Registry ID card.
Once you're registered, you can visit an Etain Dispensary to pickup medications and speak with our pharmacists.
Please bring all required documentation:
