You may receive the registration card after receiving an exam from a licensed medical physician, completing a Medical Marijuana Registry application, and submitting it to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). Fees and proof of identification and Colorado residence are also required when submitting the application. If approved, allow up to six weeks to receive your registration card in the mail. Apply Online to receive your card within days. Learn more about the registration card and the doctors licensed to offer the exam on our Registration Card page.

A patient’s medical use of marijuana, within the following limits, is lawful: (I)No more than two ounces of a usable form of marijuana”

  • What is the difference between medical and recreational use?

    Medical marijuana is offered only to those with a Colorado medical marijuana registration card that has been recommended by a doctor. Recreational use, also known as retail, is sold to adults more than 21 years of age by only licensed marijuana retailers.

Consumption/Legal
  • How old do I have to be to purchase recreational/retail marijuana?

    You must be 21 years old or older.

  • Can I take the marijuana I purchase in Colorado out of state?

    No, it is illegal to take any form of marijuana across state lines, whether it is medical or retail marijuana.

  • What are the different ways I can consume marijuana?

    Marijuana comes in many different forms for different effects and purposes. The forms include flower, edibles, concentrates, topicals, and tinctures. Cannabis can be consumed by smoking, vaping, dabbing, or by ingesting edibles and tinctures. There are also topical applications of cannabis like patches, lotions, and oils. Check out our Resources page for more information.

  • What effects can I expect when using marijuana?

    Effects will vary by each user and type of marijuana consumed.

  • Can I consume marijuana in my hotel room or on a hotel balcony?

    It is up to the hotel to allow smoking on their premises. Ask your hotel before consuming marijuana or you may face fines or even arrest. The city of Denver prohibits marijuana consumption on hotel balconies if visible from any public place.

  • Can I have marijuana in my car?

    Yes, you may have marijuana in your car, but you cannot consume it in your vehicle or drive under the influence of marijuana. Also, it cannot be in an open container and cannot be driven across state lines.

Products
  • What is the difference between indica, sativa and hybrid?

    There are two different types of marijuana: indica and sativa, as well as a mix of the two known as a hybrid. Both the plant’s appearance and its effects are different depending on the dominance of the sativa or indica. If you are looking for a lively, energetic effect, a sativa is your choice. If you are looking for something to help you sleep or really relax, an indica is a better option. A hybrid contains both indica and sativa so it has a mixture of effects. The dominance can sway the plant one way or another and this will differ strain to strain.

  • What is wax?

    Wax is a cannabis extract that is softer and more opaque than its glassy shatter counterpart due to the crystallization of the molecules. There are also different versions of wax, like budder, that is made from runny oils with more moisture that tend to be gooier. Other wax extracts that are soft and brittle are known as honeycomb or crumble. Wax is an umbrella term used to describe all of these softer extracts.

  • What is shatter?

    Shatter, sometimes referred to as sap because of its resemblance, is the purest and cleanest marijuana extract or BHO (butane hash oil) and is highly potent. Shatter is an oil that concentrates the marijuana plant’s THC and CBD through an extraction process. Shatter looks like glass with its translucency, but that isn’t always an indicator of its quality. The translucency, consistency, and texture depend on different factors including moisture, heat, and terpene content.

  • What is live resin?

    Live resin is a cannabis extract that uses fresh and frozen marijuana plants that were harvested just hours before processing, rather than dry plants that have been cured. Using fresh plants allows for more terpene content since the terpenes degrade and change once the plant is dried.

  • What is pull-and-snap?

    A pull-and-snap is an extract that isn’t wax but also isn’t shatter. It is a concentrate that falls between the glassy look of shatter and viscous sap.

Recreational
  • How old do I have to be to buy marijuana?

    You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase adult-use, or recreational, marijuana in Colorado. Find a recreational dispensary near you.

  • How much marijuana can I buy?

    Adult-use, or recreational, consumers are allowed to purchase up to one ounce of marijuana per day.

  • How can I transport my recreational marijuana purchase?

    You are allowed to have marijuana in your vehicle, but must not consume it in your vehicle, in public, or drive while under the influence of any cannabis product. Keep the products in the Exit Bag from the dispensary. Your purchase must not be in an open container.

    You may be allowed to consume cannabis products in your hotel room or rental. Check with the policy of the place you are staying to make sure you comply with local laws as well as rules set by the property owner. You may not consume on a balcony if it is visible from a public place.

    You may not travel across state lines with your purchase. Any marijuana product purchased in Colorado must be consumed within the state or disposed of before you cross state lines.
