Overview of the MN Process


  • Schedule an appointment with Dr. Ewals
  • Print and bring medical records for your qualifying condition to this appointment. Dr. Ewals will need these in order to move forward with the process.
  • Print and fill out our New Patient form and our Medical Release form. Bring these with to your appointment as well. If you do not have a printer we can provide you with these forms at your appointment.
  • Dr. Ewals will then review your medical records and determine if the use of medical marijuana would be an effective treatment for your underlying condition.


After your appointment, Dr. Ewals will submit the necessary certifying documentation with the state. Next, you will receive an email from the Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) with a confirmation and your personal registration link for the Medical Cannabis Patient Registry.


Once you receive your registration email, you will be ready to register. Before you register, review the items you will need to gather on the MDH Website to complete your registration and submit payment.


The Minnesota Department of Health’s Office of Medical Cannabis (MDH OMC) maintains a patient registry of people who are allowed to receive medical marijuana as a treatment option. Once approved, you’ll be notified by email.


Before you can purchase medical marijuana you’ll need to complete and submit a Patient Self-Evaluation Form by going online to the Medical Cannabis Patient Registry. You then can visit a dispensary near you for obtaining your medical marijuana. List of local dispensaries can be found on our dispensaries tab.
