MY NAME IS Ivy
I am an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse on Maui. I diagnose and treat patients with all sorts of illnesses from simple flu symptoms to more complicated diseases. I have certified many patients on Oahu and Maui.
Who Can Get A Card?
There are 12 different medical conditions that qualify for a Medical Dispensary Card. The most common condition that cards are issued for is chronic pain. If you have any medical condition that causes chronic pain or nausea you will qualify. See the Department of Health's website here for more information on exactly which conditions are currently accepted.
Can visitors to Hawaii be certified? Hawaii passed HB2729 recently and the Governor is expected to sign it. This law puts a system in place to allow patients to access medical dispensaries if they have a State Medical Card.
How Much Does it Cost and How Long Does it Take?
A Medical Dispensary Card has two separate fees. The first fee is $38.50 paid to the State of Hawaii and the second fee is $150 paid to the Doctor or APRN that certifies you. Most providers charge about the same for initial certifications. Renewal fees however are not very standardized as some providers charge $150 while CertiCann charges just $75 to renew your card.
Your consultation usually takes 30 minutes. Once it's completed your application is sent electronically to the Department of Health and you can expect your Medical Dispensary Card in 2 weeks. The card is valid for one year and will give you access to any medical dispensary in Hawaii.
Do I need a Hawaii Drivers License or State ID to get certified? No you do not but you do need to have a local address to receive your card at because it's mailed to you.
Can I use my medicine in public like on the beach? No you cannot.
Can I take my medicine on a plane between the islands? No you cannot.
Are edibles available in the dispensaries? Not yet but limited types of edibles are expected to be available soon due to the passage of HB2729.
Hawaii currently has five medical dispensaries operating on three islands with more dispensaries opening soon. Oahu has the most medical dispensaries with Aloha Green, Noa Botanicals and Cure Oahu.
Maui Grown Therapies was the first medical dispensary to open in Hawaii and is a patient-focused dispensary that has three medical doctors on it's board of directors. Another medical dispensary on Maui is Pono Life Sciences which is currently building out it's property but is open for business.
Have a Heart, aka Green Aloha, is Kauai's first and only medical dispensary.
