How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Pennsylvania
Overall, obtaining a medical cannabis card for medical marijuana is a simple and straightforward process. The majority of this procedure will involve determining the severity of your qualifying medical condition(s), such as multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease, or HIV/AIDS. Our team can assist you in completing the steps required to become a medical marijuana patient as quickly as possible so that you can begin to reap the benefits of that status.
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.
Obtain a Certification By Meeting with a PA Department of Health-Certified Doctor at the Sanctuary
One of the primary reasons why many people choose to work with The Sanctuary's team is that we offer several options for going through the evaluation process with an approved physician. We can accommodate you whether you prefer to come in and have an in-person assessment or a telemedicine appointment. You will meet with the doctor for 10-15 minutes to discuss your symptoms, which may include neurodegenerative diseases, neuropathies, or others. You can also get answers to any questions you have about medical marijuana treatment. At the conclusion of your appointment, you will be given your certification.
Complete Registration on PA DOH Website
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.
Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana
The Pennsylvania General Assembly passed the Medical Marijuana Act (Act) on April 17, 2016. This made the sale, possession, and use of medical cannabis legal. Each patient must be a Pennsylvania resident in order to obtain a medical marijuana card and purchase medical cannabis from dispensaries. In order to obtain certification, a PDH-approved doctor must verify their patient's medical condition.
The MMJ program is open to patients of any years of age. Whether you have intractable seizures or intractable pain, there is a possibility that you may be eligible for marijuana card after your background check. Our team prides itself on working with patients that are combating serious medical issues such as a terminal illness, Tourette, autism, or epilepsy throughout PA.
