Patients and Caregivers must first register on the Maryland Cannabis Commission website by providing name, address, date of birth, and uploading an image of a government ID and recent photo. MMCC staff will review the application and notify the patient of their unique 16-digit Patient ID number.
Once you receive your patient number (obtained only through the MMCC website), you must obtain a written referral (“written certification”) from a doctor who has registered with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission. The registered physician will use the assigned patient number to issue an online recommendation for medical cannabis.

A patient may designate up to two persons as caregivers. If a patient selects you to be a caregiver, you must submit an application through the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission’s website. Caregivers must be 21 years old or older. A caregiver may be a family member but the patient can choose whomever they wish. Caregivers cannot care for more than five qualifying patients.
Do I Have to Pay a Fee to Register?
Can My Primary Care Physician Recommend Medical Cannabis?
Licensed physicians must register as a “Certifying Provider” with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission in order to issue written certifications for medical cannabis to patients for treatment of a qualifying medical condition. The physician must have an active, unrestricted license to practice medicine in the State of Maryland, be in good standing, and must also be registered to prescribe controlled substances by the State.
The patient must register through the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission before a physician can provide a written certification for the patient. A patient can then visit a registered physician in-person. The physician will examine the patient, review medical records, assess the patient’s medical history, maintain current records, and provide the patient with follow-up care as needed.
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 Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission’s website.
Ask your primary care physician if she or he is registered, and discuss whether medical cannabis would benefit your medical condition. *There is no need to pay any person or organization any fee other than the fee your physician charges for the doctor visit.*
