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.
