How often do I need to renew my Iowa Medical Marijuana Card?

Iowa medical marijuana certificates are valid for one year and can be renewed online. We recommend renewing 60 days before your expiration date to avoid a lapse in coverage.

A renewal consultation with Leafwell costs $99 and you'll only be charged once approved.

Here's a summary of the renewal process:

  1. Sign in to your Leafwell account or register as a renewal patient here.
  2. Speak to an Iowa-licensed healthcare provider online and get approved.
  3. Download your certification to submit with your state application to the Iowa Medical Cannabis Program. There is a $100 state application fee.
  4. You will receive an email from the state when your application has been processed and approved.
  5. Receive a temporary card via email that can be used to purchase medicine until your hard copy arrives in the mail.
