About Medical Marijuana in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania passed medical cannabis laws in 2016 when it was signed into law by Governor Tom Wolf. The bill called for non-smokable cannabis products to be sold by state-licensed operators.
The marketplace began in February 2018. 

On August 1, 2018, the state began allowing the sale of cannabis flower after receiving overwhelming feedback from patients. However, the smoking of flower remains illegal. Instead, patients use a device called a dry herb vaporizer to inhale gently heated vapor from the flower. 

In short order, the state's medical cannabis market is regarded as one of the shining examples of America's marketplaces. Patients, by and large, approved the program while sales projections before the launch saw the state becoming a top earner.

How to Become a Medical Cannabis Patient in Pennsylvania

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.

More About Pennsylvania

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is bordered by Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, New York, New Jersey and Ohio. Lake Erie and Ontario lie at the state's Northwestern border. It is the 5th most populous state in the union, and is the home of the City of Brotherly Love--Philadelphia. 

Pennsylvania is also one of our oldest states, having come into existence in 1681 and was one of the 13 original states. Incidentally, it's also the only state out of the original 13 states that did not share a border with the Atlantic Ocean. 

There are plenty of fun activities in Pennsylvania no matter what the season. There are two major football teams--the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers--two NHL teams--the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins, and a major league soccer team that has won multiple world championships--the Philadelphia Union.

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.

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!

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.
