A patient must be diagnosed with at least one of the following conditions to qualify to receive marijuana or a marijuana delivery device:
- Wasting syndrome
- Severe pain
- Severe nausea
- Severe or persistent muscle spasms
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Chronic pain
In order to be able to issue written certifications for medical cannabis to patients for treatment of a qualifying medical condition, you must register as a “Certifying Provider” with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission.
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.
The requirements for issuing a written certification for medical cannabis are:
- A “bona fide physician-patient relationship” with the patient
- The patient’s condition must be severe
- Other medical treatments must have proven ineffective for the patient’s condition, and
- The symptoms must reasonably be expected to be relieved by the use of medical cannabis.
Maryland law defines a “bona fide physician-patient relationship” as a treatment or counseling relationship between a Provider and patient in which the physician reviews the patient’s relevant medical records, completes an in person assessment of the patient’s medical history and current medical condition, creates and maintains medically standardized records, expects to monitor patient program and takes any medically indicated action to follow up.
Once issued, a Provider may amend or revoke a patient’s written certification on any medical grounds or if the patient no longer meets the Provider’s inclusion criteria, or the patient now meets the Provider’s exclusion criteria. Examples of exclusion criteria include suspicion on the part of the physician that the patient is abusing cannabis or diverting cannabis to others.
More information is available on the Provider’s Frequently Asked Questions page.
When purchasing medical cannabis, patients will be required to present their valid US government-issued photo ID or MMCC ID card. One of our Dispensary Associates will verify the patient’s certification in the Commission’s database before conducting any transaction.
Patient safety and confidentiality are our highest priorities. Curaleaf uses state-of-the-art security systems and procedures to ensure that your experience is safe, discreet and enjoyable. Our dispensary location will always have security personnel present.
There are no restrictions on how often qualifying patients and caregivers may visit the dispensary. However, patients may purchase and obtain a maximum of a thirty-day supply of medical cannabis at one time.
