    Register for the medical marijuana program at medicalmarijuana.pa.gov

    Because marijuana is a controlled substance, you will need to go through a formal process to qualify for the program. You must register with the state, providing your driver's license ID number and current address. The system will assign you a patient ID number, which the doctor will use to update your records to reflect that you have been certified for medical marijuana treatment.

    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.

    After the doctor has certified you, you must log in to the account you used to register and pay the $50 application fee to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The DOH will mail your medical marijuana card to the address listed on your driver's license when you registered with the patient or caregiver registry. Keep in mind that if your movement disorders qualify you for a government assistance program such as Medicaid or WIC, you may be eligible for a reduced registration fee.

    Visit a Dispensary in Pennsylvania to Obtain Medical Marijuana

    Once your card arrives in the mail, you can purchase medical marijuana at any dispensary in Pennsylvania. An initial consultation with a dispensary pharmacist is strongly advised. They'll be able to identify the best types of medical marijuana for your specific needs. Because your ID card only allows you to obtain up to a 30-day supply of medical marijuana, it is critical that you consult a pharmacist to ensure that you find the type of marijuana that will help you manage your pain or ailments in a way that doesn’t subject you to discomforting side effects.

How do I 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 payment. 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 updated every 12 months. This time period ensures patient safety by necessitating a reevaluation to make sure medicinal marijuana is still appropriate and safe for each person.

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. The visit will be similar to your original medical cannabis consultation.

Thirty days prior to the payment deadline for your renewal, the Department of Health will also send you an email reminder. You can log into your account to confirm that a legitimate payment method is still on file. Your card won't expire if you pay the $50 renewal charge within 30 days of receiving this message.

Your doctor will inquire about your signs and symptoms as well as how you feel after using medical marijuana. Based on your experience, you may ask about dosages and side effects. Your certification will be sent to the state's registry by your doctor. It will instantly connect to your account.

Make sure the address that is listed for you is correct. As long as your doctor's certificate is current and your payment is accepted, the state will automatically mail you a replacement card.
