What to Know

For patients renewing their Louisiana medical marijuana card for the first time, there are some helpful things you should know:

  • document

    Patient Certification

    Medical marijuana patients are allowed to see a different doctor than the one who issued their initial patient’s certification. Any medical marijuana doctor approved by the state can evaluate medical cannabis patients for a qualifying medical condition and certify patients for an MMJ card.

    You don’t need to use the same doctor, and you don’t need to use the same service. If you got your initial medical marijuana card at a local healthcare facility or through another online provider, you can still complete the renewal process with Leafwell online.

  • Renewal Frequency

    Louisiana medical marijuana cards are valid for one year and can be renewed online. Plus, if you’re a returning patient renewing with Leafwell, we’ll send you a reminder 30 days before your MMJ card expires so you can avoid a lapse in coverage.

  • caregiver icon

    Can I Purchase Medical Marijuana?

    You can purchase medical marijuana at Louisiana licensed dispensaries using your card on the day it expires. After the expiration date on your Louisiana medical marijuana card, you’ll no longer be able to buy medical cannabis, so it’s best to start your renewal early.

What You Need

You’ll need to provide the following to renew your participation in the medical cannabis program:

  • info icon

    Leafwell Account

    If you got your initial patient certification somewhere else, you’ll need to create a Leafwell account to renew your medical marijuana card with us. Don’t worry, it only takes a few minutes.

  • Medical Marijuana Recommendation

    Once approved by one of our medical marijuana doctors, the provider will update your information with the Louisiana registry and your chosen dispensary so they know you can still obtain medical cannabis.

  • ID icon

    Proof of Identity

    Acceptable forms include your Louisiana driver’s license or a state government-issued ID.

Next Steps After Approval

Congrats on getting your medical certificate! One of our doctors has already passed along information about your medical marijuana card renewal to the state registry and your chosen dispensary or pharmacy, so you’re all set. There are no physical medical cards in Louisiana, so medical marijuana patients are all set after they get their physician’s recommendation. There’s also no state renewal fee.


Louisiana doesn’t have a formal program for certifying caregivers, but it does allow people to act as caregivers for medical cannabis patients. As long as your patient has told their designated pharmacy that they want you to be able to pick up their medical cannabis for them, you’re all set. They’ll need to go through any steps the pharmacy requires for setting up this type of assistance.


What is a medical marijuana card renewal in LA like with Leafwell?

The process is quite simple for renewing your medical cannabis card with Leafwell. Existing patients should log into their Leafwell account. If you're a new patient, it only takes a few minutes to set one up. Once you've logged in or signed up, you can connect with one of our physicians, no appointment required, or book one of our telemedicine appointments from the comfort of your own home. During your appointment, one of our physicians will discuss your medical conditions and the potential medical benefits of cannabis treatment with you. If they feel that continuing cannabis treatment for your health and qualifying conditions is right, they'll renew your Louisiana patient certification and submit your patient information to the state registry and the pharmacy of your choosing. It's important to start this process early so there's no gap in your coverage, and you don't lose access to the medicine you need. There are also no hidden fees with Leafwell. A renewal appointment is $99, and you get your money back if you're not approved for medical marijuana. Since Louisiana doesn't charge any fees for medical marijuana patients, this will be your only cost.

Can I use my Louisiana medical marijuana card in other states?

Some states recognize out of state medical marijuana cards, and others do not. Out of state patients should familiarize themselves with reciprocity rules, especially before they travel, so they know where they're eligible to obtain medical marijuana. You can see a full list of the states that recognize the medical cards of out of state patients in our reciprocity guide.
