You begin your medical cannabis application process by registering with Pennsylvania's Medical Marijuana Registry. Once you provide the needed information, the next step is receiving certification by an approved physician if you have one of the approved qualifying conditions. You can find a complete list of Pennsylvania's qualifying conditions in the FAQ section below.
After receiving approval, you will pay for a first-time registration. A different renewal process follows this the following years. The state will inform applicants via email 30 days prior to their expiration with directions on how to renew online.

Excellent service. I was initially was going to see a doc referred by my pcp under large & well known hospital—— said office was all over the place and had me wait a week to see a doctor for this. So I sought to find my own doctor and I was so glad I found this place! The entire process with NuggMD took less than 24 hours!!! Fast, efficient, and super professional. HIGHLY recommend.
I really appreciate the fast and easy navigation of the website. I was kept informed thru the whole process.
It is reassuring to know I can have a stress-free experience with NuggMD.
This service is AMAZING! I was certified by a doctor and had my card within an hour! I filled out some quick questions and provided documentation of my qualifying condition. That was sent to a certified doctor and I kept the browser open and waited about 10 minutes until I was greeted via video chat by the doctor. We talked about my condition and how MMJ could help, and I was approved immediately. 20 minutes later I got the card activated by the state MMJ department. I was blown away by how fast and easy this process was. 10/10 would recommend this service!
Very nice and hassle free service. Everyone is helpful and the doctor who certified me was professional and caring answered all my questions. I highly recommend this NuggMD. Thank you !!
With a family history of glaucoma and early signs of it affecting my eyes, and with frequent migraines, easy access to medical cannabis is incredibly important to me. NuggMD walked me through the process and held my hand (figuratively) the whole way. Registering was quick and easy ... and unbelievably fast. I definitely recommend their services.
