CED Clinic serves to educate consumers about the medical properties and value of cannabis. We help facilitate appropriate evaluations, and/or state-sponsored certifications, of patients with the Massachusetts Medical Marijuana Program, as well as for Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.
CED is an organization dedicated to combating, through education and information, stigmas associated with cannabis. Advances in science, medical research, and modern product controls underscore the ability of medicinal cannabis to be a viable and empowering treatment option for patients.

For you to be considered an active, legal patient able to use medical cannabis in Massachusetts, all steps must be completed. If you, the recipient of the medical access, do not complete the registration process with the Massachusetts Medical Marijuana Program, you will not be considered a legal patient in Massachusetts.
Note: All new patients are encouraged to please return for a timely follow-up evaluation. This allows us to help ensure that you are enjoying a productive, healthy introduction to the use of therapeutic cannabis.
