How often do I need to renew my Louisiana Medical Marijuana Certificate?

Louisiana medical marijuana recommendations are valid for one year and can be renewed online. We recommend renewing 7-10 days before your expiration date to avoid a lapse in coverage.

A renewal consultation costs $99 and you'll only be charged if 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 a Louisiana-licensed provider online.

  3. Get approved and Leafwell will fax your recommendation to your pharmacy of choice.

  4. As soon as the pharmacy has processed your approval, you can legally purchase cannabis from that pharmacy. Processing time may vary from only a few hours, to a few days.
