The Appointment Process

Pennsylvania requires two appointments with a doctor in order to qualify for a medical marijuana card recommendation.

Appointment One: A General Consultation

This appointment is a general consultation. The purpose is for the doctor to understand your health. After this appointment is completed, you have the opportunity to begin your state registration here.

Appointment Two: The Medical Cannabis Recommendation

The second appointment will further discuss medical marijuana as an alternative treatment. The doctor will explain the specifics of using medical marijuana as a treatment option. After this appointment, you will receive a formal medical marijuana recommendation (assuming you qualify).

After Approval

Once the doctor approves you for medical cannabis, we will send a confirmation when the doctor has completed their end of your state registration. Once confirmed – you will then be able to complete your registration in the state portal by submitting your electronic application here.

The state charges an application fee of $50. Patients that can provide evidence that they participate in the following government programs may qualify for a discounted medical marijuana ID card: Medicaid, PACE/ PACENET, CHIP, SNAP, and WIC.

After being approved, your medical marijuana card will be mailed to your state address in 5-7 business days.
