How To Do It

Option 1: Online

The completed packet can be scanned and uploaded directly to the Nevada Medical Cannabis Program's website. If you have used the site to download your application packet, then you already have an account. This is the fastest way to get approval, sometimes in as little as 24 hours.

Option 2: Walk-In

If you live in the Carson City area, you have the option of walking the completed application directly to the offices of the NDPBH. The address is included on the application packet. Make sure to bring the $75 registration fee.

Option 3: Mail

If you do not live in the Carson City area, mail the completed application to the included address along with the $75 fee.

When your application is approved by the NDPBH, you’ll receive a temporary approval letter. This approval letter can be used for 30 days at Sierra Wellness as a valid medical cannabis card while your official card is mailed to you.

How To Get The Letter

If you used the online process, your approval letter will be available to download directly from the Nevada Medical Cannabis Program's website. If you did not, you will receive it in the mail.

Once you have your approval letter, come visit us at one of our two dispensaries. Or you can place your order over the phone by calling 775-800-WELL. Our team is ready to help you find exactly what you need.
