Supporting Documentation

Supporting documentation is important for our providers to make an educated decision during the evaluation process for the safest outcome. We accept all forms for supporting documentation and current or previously used medication for the condition that you are seeking medical cannabis. Additionally you can have your doctors office fax over any documentation and if you need further assistance you can fill out a medical release and we can assist you in acquiring your records.

Registration with State of Maryland

Registration with the state of maryland is necessary for us to complete the process and issue you a certificate for medical cannabis. Please follow the steps carefully to avoid any further delay.

1) You will need a valid email to check immediately after registering. (we can use our office email if needed)

2) You will need a government issued photo ID preferably with Maryland address.

3) You will need to take a photo of yourself against a white background. (smartphone can be used to take pictures and process application)

Once you have completed registration you should receive an email asking to verify that your email is correct. It will take 10-45 days for the state to process and issue your MMCC ID# which we will then use to issue your certification.

Certification Appointment

Your evaluation with our provider is the most important step and will determine if your condition qualifies and how medical cannabis can benefit you. During the evaluation we will assess any supporting documents, medication and new patient forms in regards to the condition you are seeking cannabis. Registered and qualified patients will receive a signed Physician Certification Form that will allow them to visit any of the dispensaries located in the state of Maryland and soon Washington DC. In order to receive the Physician Certification Form, patients must be a valid Maryland resident, show proof of residence, and pay the physician’s visit fee. Please note that insurance companies do not cover medical marijuana consultations or the state’s medical marijuana application fee.
