Becoming a Patient

Once you’ve determined that your particular medical condition qualifies for medical marijuana treatment as per Pennsylvania state guidelines, it’s essential to confirm your eligibility and complete the necessary steps for the registration process. The journey ahead may feel complex, but rest assured, our empathetic and knowledgeable team at Restore Dispensaries is here to navigate these pathways alongside you, ensuring an experience that ultimately feels smooth and empowering.

The initial phase entails registering on the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Patient and Caregiver Registry to officially create an account. This online platform is user-friendly and designed to keep your registration process as efficient and comprehensible as possible.

Following your registration, the next step will be finding a registered, participating physician who can certify your qualifying condition. Don’t worry about embarking on a draining search – the Pennsylvania Department of Health maintains an up-to-date physician registry conveniently, so you are adequately supported and can find a professional near you. Restore Dispensaries also offers discounted certification events, which are conducted virtually through Leafwell. The patient discount code can be found on our resource page titled Obtaining A PA Card

Lastly, once you have been successfully certified and paid your annual state fee on the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Patient and Caregiver Registry, you will receive your medical marijuana card in the mail. After receiving your card, you’re one step closer to discovering the therapeutic potential that medical marijuana might hold for your unique healthcare journey!

Consumption Methods

Pennsylvania law doesn’t allow for combustion, meaning traditional smoking methods are not permissible. However, viable options include vaping, edibles, tinctures, topicals, and more. Our experts at Restore can educate you on these methods, helping you identify the most suitable option for your unique needs and comfort.
