What to Know

For patients going through New Jersey medical marijuana card renewal for the first time, there are some helpful things you should know:

  • document

    Patient Certification

    Existing patients can see a different doctor than the one who issued their initial certificate for the New Jersey medical marijuana program. All medical marijuana doctors approved by the state can evaluate medical conditions and chronic pain and certify patients for the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission.

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

  • Renewal Frequency

    New Jersey medical marijuana card renewal is a little interesting, and you’ll need to keep two schedules in mind. That’s because the state separates outpatient certification renewal from New Jersey medical marijuana card renewal. Here’s what you need to know:

    • Your patient certification lasts one year and needs to be renewed annually
    • Your New Jersey medical marijuana card last two years

    What does that mean for medical patients? That means you’ll meet with a doctor about medical marijuana treatment every year, but you don’t need to apply to the state every year for your digital card. Every year, your doctor will check your medical records and make sure medical cannabis treatment is right for you.

    If medical marijuana is no longer needed for your health but you like its other benefits, don’t worry. You don’t need your New Jersey medical marijuana card. You can buy recreational marijuana legally at any local dispensary if you’re over 21.

    Can I Purchase Medical Marijuana?

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

Next Steps After Approval

Congrats on getting your medical certificate! You’re almost there, but there are a few more steps to complete for the renewal of your medical marijuana card in New Jersey to be final:

  • Before You Start: What You’ll Need
    • A credit or debit card for payment
    • The guide below
  • Medical Certificate: Your Leafwell doctor will submit this to the state for you.
  • Log In: Log into the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program as a returning patient to submit a renewal request.
  • Download Your Card: After the state completes its application review process (typically within three weeks), you can download your new, updated medical card from your profile.
  • (Optional) Pay for Your Physical Card: New Jersey issues medical cards digitally, but you can pay $10 for a physical card if you want one.

Note: You have 60 days from your physician’s approval to complete these steps. If you miss the deadline for successfully submitting everything, your certifying physician will have to resubmit your certificate to the state, and that comes with an additional fee.

If you went through the card renewal process last year, you’re done as soon as your Leafwell MMJ doctor sends your updated certification to the state. You’ll keep using your card in New Jersey to access medical cannabis as you have been.


Designated caregivers also need to keep their medical marijuana cards active. You’ll also need to fill out the required documents every two years to keep an updated card in New Jersey. Please keep in mind that the expiration dates for patients and caregivers match, so if your patient adds you after they’ve completed their card renewal, your card may be good for less than the full two years. Keeping this medical card active allows you to purchase marijuana from alternative treatment centers for your patient(s), even if they’re not there with you.


Can I use my New Jersey medical marijuana card in other states?

Certain states recognize the out-of-state medical marijuana card of patients, including those from New Jersey, but not every state with a medical marijuana program does. Check out our guide to medical marijuana reciprocity to find out which states recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards.
