When it's Tiume to Renew Your PA Medical Marijuana Card

girl blue

It is simple to renew your medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. It is only necessary to obtain an updated certificate and pay the renewal fee. You can remain a patient for as long as you want after enrolling in the state's registry.

To purchase cannabis from a dispensary in Pennsylvania, your certification must be renewed every 12 months. This reassessment ensures patient safety by confirming medical marijuana is still safe and effective in each individual case.

You will receive an email 60 days before your certificate expires reminding you to renew it. You can then schedule an online appointment with one of the Sanctuary's registered medical marijuana doctors. This visit will be similar to your first MMJ 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 fee 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 about relevant topics like dosing and side effects. Your certification will be sent to the registry by the doctor. It will connect to your account automatically.

Make sure 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 new card.

How to Become a Medical Marijuana Caregiver

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 minors, 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 provide the name of the patient you will be assisting, their program ID number, as well as 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 offense for selling or possessing drugs 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.

  1. Once you pass the background check, the state will contact you via email. After that, you can pay the $50 registration fee. Medical marijuana cards for caregivers have an annual expiration date.
  2. Schedule an online appointment with one of our doctors.

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 products on their behalf by linking you as their caregiver through their online account. To become patients, minors or adults with disabilities must register with you as their caregiver.
