How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Pennsylvania

Step 1 to get your Medical Marijuana Card

Register for the Medical Marijuana Program at medicalmarijuana.pa.gov

You will need to register with the state using your driver's license ID number and current address. The system will assign you a unique patient ID number, which the doctor will upload at your visit to amend your records to reflect your certification for medical marijuana therapy. Make a note of this ID number and save it somewhere secure since you will need it for your appointment. You will also need to enter back into this account once you have received your certification, so keep your login details handy. The registration process on our website is simple and straightforward. If you run into any problems, please contact our staff.

Step 2 to get your Medical Marijuana Card

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.

Step 3 to get your Medical Marijuana Card

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 charge to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The registration price is normally $50.00; however, if you are on a government assistance program such as Medicaid or WIC, your charge may be eliminated or reduced. The Department of Health will mail your medical cannabis card to the address on your driver's license that you used to register, so double-check that you have supplied the right contact information.

How to Renew Your Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card

girl blue

It's simple to renew your medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. All you have to do is procure an updated certificate and pay the renewal charge. You can remain a patient for as long as you like after you re-enroll in the state's registry.

To acquire cannabis from a dispensary in Pennsylvania, your certification must be renewed every 12 months. The doctor's reevaluation that the state mandates guarantees that medical marijuana is still safe and effective in each particular situation.

You will receive an email 60 days before your certificate expires reminding you to renew it. You can then schedule an appointment with one of the Sanctuary's authorized medical marijuana doctors online. This visit will be similar to your first medical cannabis 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 charge within 30 days of receiving this notice, your card will not expire.

Your doctor will inquire about your symptoms as well as how you're responding to your medical marijuana treatment. Based on your own experiences, you can ask questions concerning your treatment. Your new MMJ certification will be uploaded to the state registry by your doctor. It will connect to your account immediately.

Be sure to confirm your address on file 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.

How to Become a Medical Marijuana Caregiver

Medical marijuana caregivers in Pennsylvania are people who register with the state's medical marijuana program in order to purchase medical marijuana on behalf of kids, homebound adults, and people with disabilities. Registered carers must be at least 21 years old and have a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or state-issued ID.

  1. Every caregiver must register with the Department of Health. To set up your account, you will need to submit the name of the patient you will be supporting, their program ID number, as well as your name and address.
  2. Submit to a criminal background check using the vendor provided by the state. Individuals who have been convicted of a criminal charge for selling or having narcotics or controlled substances within the last five years are not eligible to become caretakers. After your fingerprinting appointment, your background check can take up to six weeks to process.

  1. Once you pass the background check, the state will contact you through email. After that, you can pay the $50 registration cost. Medical marijuana cards for caregivers have an annual expiration date.
  2. Make an online appointment with one of the Sanctuary’s medical marijuana doctors.

As a caregiver, you can only enter dispensaries and buy marijuana if your account is linked to a registered patient's. If you serve as an adult's caregiver, they can authorize you to purchase cannabis goods on their behalf by linking you as their caregiver through their online account. To become patients, minors or individuals with disabilities must register with a caregiver.

Frequently Asked Questions

In a 2022 statement to the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Advisory Board, the state reported the average retail price of cannabis was $13.40 per gram. As a cardholder, you can purchase flowers, vape cartridges, topicals, capsules, and tinctures. The cost of your product will depend on its form and THC content.

Due to the ongoing federal ban on cannabis, health insurance does not cover the cost of medical marijuana. Dispensaries offer sales, promotions for new patients, and loyalty programs for established customers, though. Some have discount programs for seniors and veterans.

You cannot visit a dispensary before your card arrives. Under Pennsylvania law, you must present a photo ID and an active medical marijuana card to shop at a dispensary. Staff members verify ID and eligibility before permitting anyone into the dispensary showroom.

You cannot smoke cannabis in public anywhere in Pennsylvania. The state has strict enforcement and high penalties for unauthorized marijuana possession and use. While your medical card will expand your rights, allowing you to purchase, possess, and use medical cannabis, you are still subject to public consumption laws.

Under the current Pennsylvania law, you can buy up to a 90-day supply from a dispensary. Your provider calculates your 90-day limit based on your qualifying medical condition, the nature of your symptoms, and your cannabis consumption method.

Fully and honestly explaining your medical history and the severity of your symptoms will ensure you receive the proper dose to manage your condition.

Yes–anxiety disorders are on the state’s list of qualifying conditions. Many patients rely on cannabis to help regulate their mood and ease symptoms that impede their ability to function day-to-day. During your medical cannabis consultation, tell the doctor about your history of anxiety (if you suffer from it) and all the medications you use to treat it.

This information will help them rule out potential interactions with and contraindications to cannabis. Dispensary staff can advise you about strains of cannabis best suited for your anxiety. It's always best to start with the smallest dose of cannabis and modify your intake based on your response to it.

Typically, you can make an appointment with one of the Sanctuary's doctors within the week. Your evaluation will last about 15 minutes, after which the doctor will submit your certification to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Once you register with the department online and pay the registration fee, your card will be mailed to you. It usually arrives within one to two weeks.

To enter a Pennsylvania dispensary, you must show a valid medical marijuana card and photo ID. Once you finish the registration process, it should take one to two weeks for your MMJ card to arrive by mail.

A Pennsylvania MMJ card entitles you to buy up to 90 days/three months' worth of medical cannabis products (as prescribed by your doctor or pharmacist).

Pennsylvania does not have a reciprocity agreement with any other state, so your medical marijuana card is not valid outside of PA. If you intend to spend significant time in another state, look into its marijuana laws. You may be eligible for a temporary medical marijuana license if they offer one.

No, Pennsylvania is one of 13 states in the United States that has only legalized marijuana for medical purposes. To legally purchase and consume cannabis products in Pennsylvania, you must obtain certification from a medical marijuana doctor based on a qualifying health condition.

To keep your medical marijuana card active, you must renew it every 12 months. To do so, simply schedule a recertification appointment with a medical marijuana doctor at the Sanctuary within 60 days of your card's expiration date. These visits are quick and simple, and they can be completed online. You'll receive a new MMJ card in the mail after your doctor approves your recertification and you pay the state's $50 fee.
