Is ARCannabis Clinic a real medical clinic?
Yes. We are a real medical clinic and not a middleman brokerage service that matches random patients to random doctors. We advise patients to stay clear of these outfits and only go to trusted and reputable specialized marijuana clinics like us for your safety and peace of mind. We only certify qualified patients for a medical marijuana card (also called medical card, mmj card, marijuana card, cannabis card) and we do everything above-board and legal.
What makes ARCannabis Clinic different from the competition?
At ARCannabis Clinic, we believe in professionalism, service, and compliance above all else. There are lots of websites out there promising lots of things but most do not even have a physician who can see you right away. Most of these sites are middle-men brokerages who match patients to random doctors. With these other guys, you'll end up having to search for a new doctor every year and start over from scratch. Your reputation, livelihood, and personal health information is too important to entrust to just anyone. When you get a marijuana card (also known as a medical card, cannabis card, mmj card) that was certified at ARCannabis Clinic, you can do so knowing that you went to the largest, most trusted medical marijuana certification clinic in the state of Pennsylvania that has served more qualified patients than anyone else in the business.

Do I lose my guns if I get a marijuana card?
This is a common misconception and the short answer is NO. You do not lose your guns by having an Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card. Medical marijuana laws have been in place for decades around the United States and we are not aware of any recorded instance where a medical marijuana patient was forced to give up the guns they already own for simply having a medical marijuana card.
What is the marijuana recommendation consultation fee?
Do you take my insurance?
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept only debit cards and major credit cards. We are the ONLY cannabis clinic in Pennsylvania to offer an in-house payment plan--You can still see our physician and get certified and then take up to 30 days to pay your certification fee. Please call 888-454-2111 for more information about our flexible payment plan.

YES! We have a new online bill pay portal to pay for your visit anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please visit https://www.arcannabisclinic.com/pay to make your payment. All major credit cards accepted. Please note, your credit card bill will show up as "HD Clinics, LTD"

Please keep this in mind and be sure that you are able to speak to one of our representatives at least once after making your appointment.

Are follow-up appointments required?
At ARCannabis Clinic, we do not require follow-up appointments but we have them available. Other cannabis clinics just want to sign your form and not see you for a year.

We want to be able to chart that progess and help our patients choose the right decision for their own healthcare. We want our patients to know that we "have their back" throughout this journey, and that we are here to help.
I'm disabled and have a caregiver, do you register caregivers?
