Register as a Patient with Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC)
Adult Patients (18+ years of age): To prepare for registration, please review the Quick Reference Card for registering as a patient.
Minor Patients (Under 18 years of age): Minor patients are required to have at least one caregiver assigned to their accounts at all times. Only parents or legal guardians 21 years of age and older are eligible to serve as caregivers for minor patients.
Caregivers must register with the Commission prior to registering the minor patient. Registering a minor patient requires additional forms, one of which must be notarized, so please review carefully the requirements in the Process Overview for registering a minor patient.
Obtain a Written Certification from a Registered Provider
Once registered, patients must obtain a valid written certification from a provider registered with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission. The patient is required by law to have a bona fide provider-patient relationship with the provider and the provider must approve medical cannabis as a treatment option for the patient for a qualifying medical condition. Qualifying medical conditions include cachexia, anorexia, wasting syndrome, severe pain, severe nausea, seizures, severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain.

Purchase ID Card (Fee: $50)
Registered patients who have obtained valid written certifications from registered providers must now purchase an ID card from MMCC for a fee of $50. As of April 1, 2019, all Maryland medical cannabis patients must present an MMCC-issued ID card in order to purchase medical cannabis.
Visit a Licensed Maryland Dispensary
After registering and obtaining a valid written certification from a registered provider, patients are able to visit licensed Maryland dispensaries to purchase medical cannabis.
When purchasing medical cannabis at a dispensary, patients will be required to present their valid US government-issued photo ID (or MMCC ID card; please see Step 4 below for information about obtaining an ID card). The dispensary agent will verify the patient’s certification in the Commission’s database before conducting any transaction.
Once established and licensed, the list of licensed Maryland dispensaries and their locations will be published on this website. Patients may only purchase and obtain a maximum of a thirty-day supply of medical cannabis at one time.
Please note: Once medical cannabis becomes available in the State of Maryland, a certification that is not used to purchase medical cannabis within 120 days of issuance becomes null and void.
