Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana

The Medical Marijuana Act (Act) was approved by the Pennsylvania General Assembly on April 17, 2016. This made the use, possession, and sale of medical marijuana legal. You must be a resident of Pennsylvania in order to apply for a card and buy medical marijuana from state dispensaries. To become certified, a PDH-approved doctor must confirm you have a qualifying condition.

Call (484) 346-5140 with any questions and to schedule your evaluation!

How to Renew Your Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card

It's easy to renew your medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. All that is needed is an updated certificate and the renewal fee. You can continue to be a patient for as long as you like after being added to the state's registry.

To buy marijuana at a dispensary in Pennsylvania, your certification must be renewed every 12 months. This time period ensures patient safety by requiring a reevaluation to make sure medical marijuana is still appropriate and safe in each specific circumstance.

An email will be sent to you 60 days before your certificate expires reminding you to renew it. Then, you can make an online appointment with any of the licensed medical marijuana doctors at the Sanctuary. It will be similar to your original MMJ card consultation.

Thirty days prior to the payment deadline for your renewal, the Department of Health will also send you an email reminder. After that, you can log into your account to confirm that a legitimate payment method has been saved there. Your card won't expire if you pay the $50 renewal fee within 30 days of receiving this notice.

Your doctor will inquire about your signs and symptoms as well as how you feel after using medical marijuana. Based on your experiences, you may ask about dosages and side effects. Your certification will be sent to the registry by the doctor. It will instantly connect to your account.

Make sure the address that is listed for you is correct. Once your doctor's certificate is current and your payment is accepted, the state will automatically mail you a new card.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cardholders can shop for safe and regulated marijuana products at any licensed Pennsylvania dispensary. The DOH has a complete list of locations.

Cardholders and registered caregivers are the only individuals permitted in dispensaries. These facilities strive to create a safe and supportive environment to help maximize your experience with medical marijuana.

Cards expire yearly. You will receive an email notice 60 days before your expiration date. Renewal requires logging in to your registry account, updating or confirming your demographic information, and attending a telehealth renewal appointment.

You can then pay the renewal fee online. Once the DOH receives your certification from the doctor, they mail your card. You can consult a different doctor for your renewal application than the one who issued your initial recommendation for marijuana.

Your application for a PA MMJ card can be denied if you haven’t been diagnosed with one of the state’s qualifying conditions, your application is incomplete or contains inaccurate information, you’re too young to obtain a medical marijuana card without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, or you’ve been charged with a violent, drug-related crime.

Any Pennsylvania resident with a qualifying medical condition can obtain a medical marijuana card with a certification from an authorized doctor. Minors need a parent or guardian to enroll in the registry as a caregiver to purchase and possess cannabis on their behalf.

Qualifying conditions include anxiety disorders, brain-spinal cord injury, neuropathies, post-traumatic stress disorder, inflammatory bowel disease, and seizures.

There is no background check requirement for patients. Caregiver applicants are subject to a criminal background check, though. Felonies preclude individuals from becoming caregivers.

While it’s possible to get certified for medical marijuana the same day you schedule an appointment with a medical marijuana doctor, it will take seven to ten days for the state to mail you your MMJ card.

While there are no dispensaries currently open in Chester Springs, others such as Zenleaf in Malvern, Beyond Hello in West Chester, and Organic Remedies in Paoli are all within a short drive.
