    Less stressful, than anticipated. Informative, understanding and timely. Not to lengthy of a process, given, one of those, at the office visits. Even the cost, was a decrease, from what it would havs cost, for a copay. Recently approved, and excited to see what these benefits, entail. Thank you for a great Customer Experience

Medical Cannabis Certification for Pennsylvania



Getting A Medical Marijuana Card in PA

How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card In Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania opted to legalize medical marijuana in 2016, and since then, attitudes towards cannabis have been changing in the Keystone State. While it is still illegal to use marijuana recreationally, people who struggle with chronic health conditions can now get the marijuana they need for treatment. Here’s how to get a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania and important PA medical marijuana laws you should know about.

Getting A Medical Marijuana Card in Pennsylvania

The process to get a Pennsylvania medical marijuana card doesn’t have to be difficult. Here’s what you need to know before starting your PA medical marijuana application.

Steps For Getting A Pennsylvania Medical Card

The first step to getting a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania is to make sure that you qualify. There are a number of chronic health conditions that can qualify you for a card in Pennsylvania. You might be surprised by how many conditions are on this list. 

Once you’ve been certified by one of our physicians via video appointment, you’ll need to visit medicalmarijuana.pa.gov and complete their online registration. In order to do this, you’ll need a valid Pennsylvania ID. After you complete the patient registration, you’ll get a patient ID number, which you will need to save in order to log back in later. You’ll also need to create a username and password. 

The next step is to get certified by a physician. One of the easiest ways to get your certification is to talk to one of Elevate Holistics’ PA medical marijuana doctors. They are very familiar with Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana laws and qualifying conditions and can answer any of your questions. If you qualify, they will provide you with the certification you need in order to get your card. You’ll need to have your patient ID number for this. 

After your doctor confirms your certification, you’ll get an email directing you to a page where you can purchase your medical marijuana card. The fee to purchase a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania is $50, although some people may qualify for discounts. Your card will be mailed to you in two to three weeks, and then you’ll be able to visit your local dispensary and purchase marijuana.

Who Can Get A Medical Marijuana Card in PA?

There are a number of conditions that will qualify you for a medical marijuana card in PA. In order to get a medical marijuana card, you will need a certification from a physician that you have one of the qualifying medical conditions. The list of qualifying medical conditions is quite extensive and includes both physical and mental health conditions. You can also get a medical marijuana card if you are a caregiver for a minor with one of these conditions or someone that is homebound and cannot buy the marijuana themselves. In this case, you can only use the card to buy marijuana for the approved patient.

Qualifying Medical Conditions

The list of medical marijuana PA conditions is very long. Some of the most notable include serious conditions like cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, autism, Chron’s disease, and more. There are also many mental health conditions on the list, including post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety disorders. If you struggle with any conditions that cause ongoing pain or disruption to your life, there’s a good chance you could qualify.

How Much Is A Medical Card In Pennsylvania?

For most people, the fee to get a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania is $50. You’ll also need to pay a $50 renewal fee annually. You’ll get an email every year with a link to pay your renewal fee. Some people may qualify for discounts on this fee. If you qualify for Medicaid, WIC, SNAP, CHIP, PACE, or other government assistance programs, you may be eligible for a discount. 

It’s also important to note that you’ll need to pay to get certified by a physician as well. Elevate Holistics offers affordable HIPAA-compliant virtual appointments ranging from $75 to $150 per session.

How Long Does It Take To Get A Medical Marijuana Card In Pennsylvania?

From start to finish, the process of getting a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania typically takes less than a month. The process of registering online will take two short sessions, and you’ll need to have an appointment with your certifying physician as well. Once your medical marijuana application has been approved, your card will come in the mail in two to three weeks.

Where Can I Get Medical Marijuana After Getting A Card?

Once your card has been mailed to you, you can shop for marijuana products at approved PA medical marijuana dispensaries. There are now dispensaries available throughout the state of Pennsylvania. You’ll find dispensaries in major cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh as well as in smaller cities and towns throughout the state. There’s a good chance you have a dispensary just a short drive away from you. Elevate Holistics has dispensary partners around the country as well.

PA Medical Marijuana Doctors

When getting your medical marijuana certification, it’s important to find a doctor who understands Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana laws, as well as the ways that marijuana can affect your body. Many general practitioners don’t have much experience with marijuana specifically, which is why it’s always best to look for a doctor who is very familiar with how to get a medical marijuana card in PA. It’s also important to note that not every doctor in Pennsylvania is approved to participate in the program – they need to have special approval from the state in order to do so. 

At Elevate Holistics, we work with board-certified doctors who are very familiar with medical marijuana. Not only can they help you get the certification that you need, but they can also recommend specific products and dosages to help with your condition. It’s normal to have questions when using medical marijuana for the first time, so having an experienced doctor will help put your mind at ease and make sure all of your concerns are addressed. 

Becoming A Caregiver In Pennsylvania

If you’re disabled and cannot pick up medical marijuana yourself, you can have a caregiver register for a medical marijuana card to make these purchases for you. This is also an option for minors who can benefit from using medical marijuana. 

To become a caregiver, you’ll need to follow most of the same processes that you would if you were getting a medical marijuana card for yourself. You’ll need to register through the Pennsylvania official website and create an account. Both you and the patient you are registering will need to have proof of Pennsylvania residency. The patient will need to be certified by a doctor, and then you’ll complete the process as normal. 

As the caregiver, you will receive the medical card in the mail and use it to purchase marijuana for the patient. However, this card is only valid to purchase marijuana for this patient – you cannot purchase it for yourself or anyone else. 

History of Medical Marijuana In Pennsylvania

The PA medical marijuana bill passed fairly recently in 2016. Prior to that, any use of marijuana was illegal in Pennsylvania. The laws surrounding medical marijuana have been consistently evolving since then. 

PA Medical Marijuana Bill Passed

Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf signed a bill in 2016 legalizing the use of cannabis for 17 qualifying medical conditions. Originally, you could only purchase non-smokable forms of marijuana in Pennsylvania, but this was repealed in 2018. Prior to 2018, there was also a law in Pennsylvania where you could lose your driver’s license if you were caught with marijuana, but the state voted to repeal it as well. 

Since then, the governor and other Pennsylvania democrats have pushed to decriminalize marijuana throughout the state and legalize it for recreational use. Many major cities throughout Pennsylvania have already voted to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana. 

PA Medical Marijuana Laws

It’s important for anyone with a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania to understand how the state’s medical marijuana laws work. Here’s what you’ll need to know. 

Possession Limits In PA

If you have a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania, you are allowed to possess up to a 30 day supply of approved cannabis products. If you don’t have a medical marijuana card, you cannot carry any marijuana with you. However, many cities in PA have opted to decriminalize possession of fewer than 30 grams of marijuana. 

Cultivation Laws In PA

Cultivating marijuana in Pennsylvania is currently illegal. If you are caught cultivating marijuana, the penalties typically include jail time and a fine. Jail time can range from one to five years in prison, while fines can range anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000. These penalties depend on how much marijuana you are caught growing. 

Reciprocity Laws in PA

Right now, Pennsylvania currently does not have a reciprocity law in place. This means that people who have a medical card in another state cannot currently purchase marijuana. However, the government has indicated that they would like to establish a reciprocity program in the future.

If you’re looking to get your medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania, you can use Elevate Holistics to do so. The process is entirely online and our board-certified doctors will make sure you get the support that you need.
