Patient Eligibility

Any Maryland resident whose physician recommends medical cannabis as a treatment option for a qualifying medical condition is eligible to register with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) as a patient. 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.

Any non-Maryland resident currently in Maryland for the purpose of receiving medical treatment is eligible to register as patient with the MMCC and, during registration, will be required to provide the name and address of the Maryland medical facility where the patient is receiving treatment.

A registered patient is permitted to identify a maximum of two individuals, aged 21 years or older, to serve as caregivers. Caregivers are required to register with and purchase ID cards from the Commission. Registered caregivers in possession of a valid MMCC Caregiver ID card are able to purchase medical cannabis on behalf of their designated patients from licensed Maryland dispensaries and transport the legally obtained medical cannabis to their designated patients.


Detailed information regarding caregiver requirements and the caregiver registration process is available on the Caregivers page.

Please note: Minor patients (under the age of 18) are required to have at least one caregiver at all times. Only parents and legal guardians of minor patients are eligible to serve as their caregivers.
