Recommending Cannabis in North Dakota

Health care providers are vital to North Dakota's medical cannabis program. An individual applying to be a qualifying patient within the program must have a bona fide provider-patient relationship with a health care provider.

The patient’s health care provider may complete a written certification form that states that in the provider’s professional opinion, the patient is likely to receive therapeutic or palliative benefit from the medical use of marijuana to treat or alleviate their debilitating medical condition. The written certification form must be submitted to the Division of Medical Marijuana. Health Care Providers include physicians licensed by the North Dakota Board of Medicine or an advanced practice registered nurse that is licensed by the North Dakota Board of Nursing.
