How to Renew Your Card in Pennsylvania

girl blue

It's not difficult to renew your medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. It is simply necessary to receive an updated certificate and pay the renewal charge. You can remain a patient for as long as you like after enrolling in the state's registry.

To acquire cannabis from a dispensary in Pennsylvania, your certification must be renewed every 12 months. Every patient must undergo a reassessment to guarantee medical marijuana is still safe and effective in each particular case.

You will receive an email 60 days before your certificate expires reminding you to renew it. You can then schedule an appointment with one of the Sanctuary's authorized medical marijuana doctors online. This visit will be similar to your first consultation.

In addition, 30 days before your renewal payment is due, the Department of Health will send you an email reminder. You can then log in to your account and make sure you have a valid payment method on file. If you pay your $50 renewal charge within 30 days of receiving this notice, your card will not expire.

Your doctor will inquire about your symptoms as well as your reaction to medical marijuana treatment. Based on your own experiences, you can ask questions concerning subjects like dosing and side effects. Your certification will be sent to the state's registry by your doctor. It will connect to your account immediately.

Make sure to check your address on file is correct. If your doctor's certificate is current and your payment is accepted, the state will automatically mail you a replacement card.

How to Become a Medical Marijuana Caregiver in PA

Medical marijuana caregivers in Pennsylvania are people who register with the state's medical marijuana program in order to purchase medical marijuana on behalf of kids, homebound adults, and people with disabilities. Registered caregivers must be at least 21 years old and have a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or state-issued ID.

  1. As a caregiver, you must register with the Department of Health. To set up your account, you will need to submit the name of the patient you will be supporting, their program ID number, and your name and address.
  2. Undergo a criminal background check using the vendor provided by the state. Individuals who have been convicted of a criminal charge for selling or possessing narcotics or controlled substances within the last five years are not eligible to become caregivers. After your fingerprinting appointment, background checks can take up to six weeks to process.
  3. Once you pass the background check, the state will contact you through email. After that, you can pay the $50 registration fee. Medical marijuana cards for caregivers have an annual expiration date.
  4. Make an appointment with one of our doctors online.

As a caregiver, you can only enter dispensaries and buy marijuana if your account is linked to a registered patient's. If you serve as an adult's caregiver, they can authorize you to purchase cannabis goods on their behalf by linking you as their caregiver through their online account. To become patients, minors or individuals with disabilities must register with you as their caregiver.

You must be a Pennsylvania resident and get a certification from a registered physician to obtain a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. You must also have one of the major medical illnesses listed in Senate Bill 3, such as Crohn's disease or post-traumatic stress disorder.
