Step 1: Get Registered


Register via Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission website.

A patient will register by providing their name, address, date of birth, and uploading an image of their government issue ID. Once registered, a patient will go to a doctor who has also registered with the Commission to obtain a “written certification.”

Step 2: Get Diagnosed


Visit a registered physician to receive written certification.

A patient needs an in-person visit with a registered physician with whom the patient has a “bona fide physician-patient relationship.”

If the patient meets the physician’s criteria for treatment with medical cannabis, the physician will issue a written certification.

The physician records the written certification on the Commission’s website.

A physical patient ID card is not required but you may request one when you receive your written certification for $50. Replacement cards are $100.
