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.

A renewal consultation with Leafwell costs $99, and you'll only be charged once approved. Plus, when you use Leafwell to renew your certificate, we'll send you a reminder email 60 days before your certification is due to expire to make sure you have plenty of time to submit your renewal application online.

Here's a summary of the renewal process:

  1. Sign in to Leafwell, or if you’re new to Leafwell, 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.
