Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Market
Proven Track Record of Success in Pennsylvania
Canna Advisors has been actively involved in the Pennsylvania cannabis industry since the day the legislation was signed. We helped clients successfully win grower/processor and dispensary licenses in Phase 1. We know the process and what it takes to win.
Now Pennsylvania has announced the implementation of Phase 2 of the medical marijuana program! The state will be issuing an additional 13 cultivation licenses, 23 dispensary licenses, and 8 clinical registrant licenses.
Medical marijuana patients in Pennsylvania will soon have access to dry leaf marijuana at dispensaries, although only for vaporization, as state law forbids smoking marijuana. This exciting addition to the medical marijuana program continues the expansion of an already successful program.

The Conditions in Pennsylvania
The market is poised for rapid growth, as nearly 900 physicians have already registered to participate in the program.
The added permits will bring Pennsylvania's medical marijuana program up to full capacity, with 25 commercial growers and 50 dispensaries.
In Pennsylvania, medical marijuana is grown and processed into pills, oils, lotions, and tinctures, and then shipped to dispensaries. Recently, Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine announced that the state will now allow the sale of medical marijuana in flower form for vaporization (the law forbids smoking it). It is available to patients to treat 21 debilitating medical conditions.
Thus far, 25,000 patients have registered for the state's medical marijuana program and 9,000 have been certified by doctors to receive the drug.
