Every applicant has to follow the laws that are unique to the state in which they are lawfully residing. Additionally, the state must have authorized the physician you visit to issue you the certification. A PDH-approved physician must confirm that you have a qualifying condition in order to certify you for an MMJ card.

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.
