As Maine’s largest medical cannabis organization, the Wellness Connection fields many questions from individuals interested in cannabis. And it makes sense – though recreational use was approved by voters in 2016, legislation is still unclear on the way forward. As a result, we operate under Maine’s Medical Cannabis Program to provide consistent, safe access to medical cannabis to qualified patients.
Do I need a medical card for CBD in Maine?
This is a great question and the short answer is no. CBD is a super vitamin cannabinoid that addresses a variety of ailments, including anxiety, depression, inflammation, neurological disorders, and insomnia, without the intoxicating effect of THC. The Wellness Connection has a variety of hemp-derived CBD products you can purchase without a medical card. All of our cannabis-derived CBD products, however, do require a valid medical cannabis card and are only available to certified patients. We have a variety of CBD-infused body products to choose from including Bath/Body and Massage Oil, made by Crow Point Apothecary in Boothbay Harbor and Mary’s Elite Gel Pen, from Mary’s Nutritionals based in Denver, which is ideal for quick relief. We also carry a wide variety of edibles, such as Oleo CBD Coconut Packets, which are full of natural vitamins and electrolytes, as well as CBD Chocolate Buttons.
