How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Pennsylvania
Register for the Medical Marijuana Program at medicalmarijuana.pa.gov
Your driver's license ID number must be used to register with the state. When you make an appointment, the doctor will upload your ID number from the system, updating your records to reflect that you have been approved for medical marijuana therapy.
Meet with a Certified Doctor from the Sanctuary
Next, you will need to receive certification for a medical marijuana card from a doctor who has been certified with the PA Department of Health. For your convenience, you can schedule a telehealth appointment with one of The Sanctuary’s medical marijuana doctors. Your meeting will be brief, in which you will spend 10 to 15 minutes discussing your health concerns and any questions you might have regarding the use of medical marijuana. If your doctor decides that you qualify, they will give your certification that same day.
Complete Registration on PA DOH Website
You must sign into the account you used to register and pay a charge to the PA department of health after the medical marijuana doctor has certified you. Your medical marijuana card will be mailed to the address on your driver's license that you provided when you first registered with the DOH.
Visit a Dispensary in Pennsylvania to Obtain Medical Marijuana
You may buy medicinal marijuana at any dispensary in Pennsylvania after your medical marijuana card arrives in the mail. A preliminary conversation with a dispensary pharmacist is strongly advised. A dispensary pharmacist will have received training that will enable them to help you choose the ideal medical marijuana strains for your unique needs.

What's the Process to Renew My 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. The state requires a doctor 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 initial medical cannabis evaluation.
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 is still stored 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 symptoms as well as how you feel during and after using medical marijuana. Based on your experiences, you can broach topics such as dosage and side effects. Your certification will be sent to the state's registry by the doctor. It will instantly connect to your account.
Make sure the address that is listed for you online is correct. As long as your doctor's certificate is current and your payment is accepted, the state will automatically mail you a new card.
