Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Certification Process

The certification process is a bit different in Pennsylvania than in many other states. While many states require you to get certified by a doctor and then register with the state, Pennsylvania encourages patients to register and obtain their patient ID number first before being evaluated by a doctor.

  • 1
    Register with the state and obtain your patient ID number.
  • 2
    Schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor.
  • 3
    Speak with the doctor to determine if you qualify.
  • 4
    Get your electronic medical marijuana ID card and start purchasing at dispensaries the same day!

The first step in obtaining your medical marijuana card is to register with the Pennsylvania Department of Health. In order to register, patients will need to have a valid state-issued identification card (such as a driver’s license) and an email address. There is no age limit for patients, but those under the age of 18 are required to have a legal guardian or parent serve as their caregiver in order for them to obtain medical marijuana. If you have any trouble using the state website or registering, we recommend contacting the state directly for support at 888-733-5595.

After successfully registering on the state website, you will receive a 6-digit medical marijuana patient ID number. After obtaining your number, you will be ready to see a medical marijuana doctor in Pennsylvania. For patients having trouble obtaining their ID number via the online application, we recommend contacting our support center at 877-242-0362 for assistance.

The majority of doctors in the state not comfortable with certifying patients for the Pennsylvania medical marijuana program because marijuana remains illegal on a federal level. In addition, a doctor or medical doctor must be registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health in order to certify patients for the program.

For these reasons it can be difficult for patients to find a doctor who will certify them. We have five clinics located conveniently throughout the state to make the search quick and easy for patients. All of our doctors are registered with the state and can legally certify you for the program. If you think that you may have a chronic medical condition that could benefit from medical marijuana, then you will most likely qualify. Our doctor can then evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and certify you for the program. Once certified, you will be able to obtain your medical marijuana at any of the Pennsylvania dispensaries.
