YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH Kif
Kif offers a technology platform connecting you with licensed health care providers for medical cannabis information. By using our services, you acknowledge that you’re not entering a patient-provider relationship with Kif. Any advice or treatment you receive is from the licensed provider, not Kif.
Healthcare providers on Kif may offer advice or treatment. However, online consultations may not replace in-person medical evaluations. Any diagnosis or treatment recommendation is provisional. Always discuss health concerns with a healthcare provider in person.

By registering for Kif and/or using any of Kif’s Services, you acknowledge that Kif is designed for qualified patients residing in states with legalized medical marijuana use. You represent that you are such a patient or, where permissible, the primary caregiver for such a patient. You are responsible for complying with all laws related to the use, possession, cultivation, transportation, and distribution of medical cannabis. Kif operates primarily in California, but is accessible in all states. Ensure you follow the laws of your resident state.

Your use of Kif’s Services is strictly for personal purposes. Sharing medical cannabis with third parties or distributing it without proper authorization is prohibited. Always act in compliance with your state’s medical (or recreational) cannabis laws.
