How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Pennsylvania
Since its introduction in 2016, Pennsylvania has made considerable efforts to simplify the application process for medicinal cannabis cards. In fact, even if you are under 18, you can be eligible for this program. Minors can be considered eligible if they can demonstrate your medical necessity and have access to a caretaker to help them through the procedure.
Every step of the journey, the Sanctuary team is here to support you. We encourage you to get in touch with us if you have queries about the registration procedure or reservations about the physician's assessment.
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. You will need to enter back into your account after you receive your certification, so it's crucial that you keep your log-in details somewhere safe and accessible.
Obtain a Certification By Meeting with a PA Department of Health-Certified Doctor at the Sanctuary
The next stage in the procedure is to have a 10- to 15-minute consultation with a doctor to discuss your condition(s) and ask any questions you may have about using medicinal marijuana as a treatment. He or she will review your medical history with you in order to ascertain whether you are eligible for this program under specific state legislation. Your certification will be given to you at your visit if you are deemed eligible.
Complete Registration on PA DOH Website
Once your physician has certified you, you must log into the account you originally used to register in order to pay the charge to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The registration charge is $50, but there is a possibility that you could be eligible for a reduced registration fee if you receive help from a government program. Remember that moving forward, you will be required to pay an annual registration fee. The DOH will mail your medical marijuana card to the address on your driver's license that you provided when you first registered once that fee has been paid.
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 and certification to help them determine the ideal medical marijuana strains for your particular condition(s). This kind of pharmacist will be able to provide you with a complete explanation of the MMJ alternatives that are available, as well as further details on creams, CBD, THC, and tinctures so that you can benefit as much as possible from Pennsylvania medical marijuana.
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 medicinal marijuana lawful. Each customer must be a resident of Pennsylvania in order to receive a medical marijuana certification and buy medicinal cannabis from dispensaries. To become certified to prescribe medical cannabis, a doctor must be PDH-approved.
The Sanctuary team pledges to help patients from Yardley, Philadelphia, Doylestown, and other parts of Pennsylvania access medical marijuana treatment in the Newtown region.
