Many people across the US who are living with serious medical conditions, such as epilepsy and HIV/AIDS, could benefit from becoming medical marijuana patients, also known as MMJ patients or medical cannabis patients. In Pennsylvania, this could become a reality for many people as the Department of Health (or DOH) has a ‘Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program’ which was signed into Pennsylvania law in 2016. But what does this mean for people suffering from serious medical conditions in Pennsylvania?

Under the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program, these people can be assessed by approved physicians to see if they have any qualifying conditions for MMJ use. If the approved physician certifies your qualifying conditions, then you’ll be able to register for a medical marijuana ID card, bringing you one step closer to the often life-changing treatment that is medical cannabis. We’ll go through the process thoroughly today, ensuring that you gain a full understanding of how to obtain a medical marijuana ID card in Pennsylvania.

How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Pennsylvania

The Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) oversees the application and approval process.

Schedule a visit with a Certified Doctor

To get a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania, you will need to visit a qualified Pennsylvania physician to receive your certification. The helpful staff at your doctor's office can book your appointment and take you through the process of obtaining a medical marijuana card

Meet with the doctor

Once you have registered online and are on the patient and caregiver registry, you can continue with making an appointment with a certified physician. Your appointment should involve physical exams, checking of vitals, and going over your medical history as well as your current serious medical condition(s). If your physician is satisfied that you have a qualifying condition, they will give you a patient certification that allows you to obtain your medical marijuana ID card.

Submit your registration through the State of Pennsylvania's website

By visiting the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s website, which you can recognize from the official Pennsylvania and government ‘’ part of the URL, you can access more information about medical marijuana as well as the link to register online for the patient and caregiver registry for medical marijuana. It is essential that you register online before you visit a certified physician, and caregivers (people acting on behalf of minors who are under eighteen years of age or patients who are physically or mentally unable to pick up their own MMJ) must register and may need to create a patient profile for the patient if they are under eighteen or unable to do so themselves.

Visit a medical marijuana treatment center in Pennsylvania to purchase medical marijuana

If the OMMU approves you for cannabis use, you will receive a medical marijuana card in the mail. You can use your cannabis card to purchase medical marijuana at any of the licensed dispensaries in Pennsylvania.

With your patient certification to hand, you can continue with your registration for a medical marijuana ID card. You can then pay the $50 fee and arrange to have your ID card delivered to your house. You should not attempt to buy medical cannabis from a dispensary at this point, as you need your medical marijuana ID card to do this.

This is my second year being a patient and I can honestly say it's been a very easy and professional experience. I was worried about getting judged, but they were the best! The staff, from the schedulers to the physician are always professional and helpful. They worked around my schedule and the appointment was timely! The process was easy and thorough.
