Maryland Medical Card Requirements
You must be a Maryland resident. There is no age requirement, however patients under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to register as their caregiver.
Any condition can qualify if a doctor determines that medical marijuana could be beneficial. Some of the more common conditions that Maryland patients have been getting their medical card for include anxiety, depression, chronic pain, PTSD, and cancer.
No medical documentation is required. Patients are encouraged to provide proof of a chronic medical condition such as medical records, pill bottles, office visit summaries, or a note from a doctor but it is not needed in order to get approved.
Our licensed marijuana doctor will evaluate you based on your current health condition, medical history, and any documentation you are able to provide as proof. If approved, we will then certify you immediately or if necessary help you get registered with.

Have Questions About Maryland Medical Cannabis?
Maryland Medical Marijuana Certification Process
The certification process in MD is a little different than many other medical states. While most states require you to be seen by a doctor first to obtain a certification and then register with the state, Maryland encourages patients to apply with their medical cannabis registry first before seeing a doctor. However, if you're having trouble getting registered, you're welcome to wait until after you see our doctor so that we can help get your application submitted to the state.
Register with the MD and obtain your patient ID number.
Schedule an appointment with a licensed MD medical marijuana doctor.
Speak with the doctor to determine if you qualify.

The first step in obtaining a medical marijuana card is to register with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) through OneStop. In order to register, patients will need to have: – a valid Maryland identification card or a government-issued identification card (such as a driver’s license or passport) along with two proofs of Maryland Residency – a valid email address. Additionally, you will be required to upload a passport-size photo (from the shoulders up with a white background; no hats or glasses). If you have any trouble using the website or registering, our staff at any of our Maryland offices will be happy to assist you. You can also contact the state directly at 410-487-8100 for assistance.
After successfully registering with the MMCC, you will receive a 16-digit medical cannabis patient ID number in about 30-45 business days. After obtaining your ID number, you will be ready to see a medical marijuana doctor in Maryland.
After completing the MMCC registration process and obtaining a MMCC patient ID number, you are now ready to see a registered Maryland medical marijuana doctor. Obtaining your ID number prior to your doctor visit means that you can go straight to the dispensary on the same day right after being evaluated. If you see the doctor first and then register on the MMCC website, you must wait to get your patient ID number from the MMCC before visiting a dispensary. It can take up to 45 business days to receive your patient ID number from the state.
The last step in getting your Maryland medical marijuana card is to be evaluated and certified by a state-licensed medical cannabis doctor.
It can sometimes be difficult for patients to find a doctor who will certify them. We currently offer in-person evaluations as well as online telemedicine visits that allow you to be seen by a medical cannabis doctor from the comfort and security of home, making the search for a physician easy for you.
If you believe that you have one of the qualifying medical conditions and have at least one type of proof, then you will most likely qualify. Our doctor can evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and issue your certification so that you can apply for your card.
Maryland Medical Marijuana Card Information from our Physician
Recently several dispensaries finally opened their doors in the state of Maryland. This is an exciting time for patients who have waited so long to get the medicine they need.

A caregiver is able to purchase medical marijuana on behalf of the patient as well as help administer the medication. Caregivers are only appointed by patients and must be 21 years or older and register with the MMCC as a caregiver.
The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission’s online medical marijuana registry is open and can be accessed here. The application fee is $50 for patients and $25 for caregivers. If you're having trouble getting registered, you can contact us at 240-356-1000 or wait for your visit with our doctor to get help with the registration process.

At Green Health Docs we are happy to provide this complimentary service. Just contact us with your patient ID number once you receive it and we will have our doctor activate your card within 24 hours.
The registration process itself only takes about 15 minutes to complete and submit to the state. Once they receive your application, it typically takes 30-45 days for them to either approve or deny your submission.

Each purchase a patient makes will be replenished onto their allotment 30 days later.
Dispensaries in Maryland currently carry a wide range of medical marijuana products including raw flower, concentrates, vapable products such as cartridges, oral products such as capsules and tinctures, topicals such as patches and creams, and more.

Yes. With Maryland being an at-will state and there not currently being any legislation in place that protects medical marijuana patients in the workplace, medical cardholders can still be administered drug screenings and receive disciplinary action regarding the results of drug screenings. For this reason, we recommend making sure you are fully aware of your employer’s policy regarding drug screenings and medical marijuana before moving forward with the process.
Maryland does not have any restrictions regarding patients on probation or parole, however, you must get permission from your probation or parole officer first before pursuing a medical marijuana card.
As a legal medical marijuana patient, you are protected. Patients do not have to disclose that they possess medical marijuana and do not have to consent to a search.

The expiration date for your state registration is found on your MMCC patient ID card. The fee to register with the state again is $50.
