How do I order my medical cannabis?

Following your appointment with one of our healthcare specialists, your medical authorization will be sent to a licensed producer of your choice. Once the LP processes your medical document (typically 1-3 business days), you will be notified and may begin ordering your medical cannabis online through their website or via telephone.

How do I store my medical cannabis?

It is important to keep your medical cannabis in the sealable container it comes in, and store in a cool and dry place. Over time, UV rays from sunlight will degrade organic matter, reducing the potency of the cannabinoids in your cannabis. Additionally, heat and oxygen will diminish the cannabinoids and dry out your cannabis.
