Where is your dispensary located?

Keystone Center of Integrative Wellness is located at 1490 High Street in Williamsport, PA. This is a new site location that was approved in February of 2018. The East 3rd Street location initially identified is no longer being utilized by our company, please disregard any outdated information on the internet you may come across.

Where can I find information on the physicians that are registered to provide patient certifications?

The Department of Health continues to add new physicians to the registry every day as more practitioners become certified to recommend medical marijuana.  The most up to date information is always found within the patient registry but you must be a registered patient in order to access it. However, the Office of Medical Marijuana continues to update a list of certified practitioners by county here.

What if I find my personal physician is hesitant about registering to recommend medical marijuana but is interested in learning more?

If your physician is interested in being able to recommend medical marijuana as a therapeutic treatment, the Office of Medical Marijuana encourages their registration.  Physicians are required to take a 4 hour course to introduce concepts and methods of utilizing medical marijuana as a treatment for serious medical conditions prior to being given their certification which will allow them to issue recommendations. If you find your physician is hesitant because they aren’t familiar with recommending medical marijuana as a treatment, Keystone Center of Integrative Wellness would be happy to discuss the ways our experienced pharmacists are able to complement your doctor’s generalized certification with ongoing dosage and administration recommendations. 

What if my condition isn’t listed as a serious medical condition?

The Department of Health’s Medical Marijuana Advisory Board is working on developing a process to have additional conditions added to the approved list.  Please continue to visit the PA Medical Marijuana website for more information as it becomes available.

Is Keystone Center of Integrative Wellness hiring?

 

In regards to positions within our company and dispensary, KCIW will announce job openings on our website and Facebook page as we grow.
