It is our mission to advocate for medical cannabis patients and to assist prospective applicants in navigating the registration process in their respective states. We offer our services to residents of multiple states applying for medical marijuana programs, including Maryland.
Maryland has authorized the use of telemedicine to certify patients for medical marijuana cards. At the Sanctuary, our staff members are available to schedule a virtual appointment for you with one of our doctors. You do not need to have a prior doctor's evaluation to meet with our licensed physicians.
During your appointment, your doctor will evaluate your condition and determine if you meet the state’s requirements for medical marijuana use. If your physician believes you would benefit from marijuana use, they will submit a certificate to the Mryland MMCC as soon as possible. Once your information is in the system, you can continue the application process on the MMCC website.
Simply call us at 484-346-5140 to arrange a virtual meeting with a physician.
"Very friendly and helpful in getting your card and are there to always answer any questions you may have. I felt very comfortable speaking with the doctor and the office had a very relaxed setting! I highly recommend them!* "
How It Works
You will need to register with with the state using the above link. The system will give you an ID number that the medical doctor will upload at your appointment to update your records to reflect that you have been certified for medical marijuana treatment.
Consult with the doctor for 10-15 minutes to evaluate your ailments and ask questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. Your certification will be issued at your appointment.
After you have certified by the doctor you will need to login to the account initially used to register and submit a $50 fee to the MD department of health. The MMCC will mail you medical marijuana card to the address on your driver's license that you used to register initially.
Once your medical marijuana card arrives in the mail you may visit any dispensary in Maryland to purchase medical marijuana. An initial visit with a dispensary pharmacist is highly recommend. A Dispensary pharmacist has been trained and certified on the best forms of medical marijuana for your specific needs.
House Bill 881, which was signed into law in 2014, legalized medical marijuana for treating illnesses. On December 1, 2017, after five years of delay, Maryland's medical marijuana program became operational and sales began. This legalized the sale, possession and use of medical cannabis. To obtain a medical marijuana card and obtain medical cannabis from dispensaries you must be a Maryland resident. A MMCC-approved doctor must verify their patient’s medical condition in order to acquire certification.Call (240) 232-6645 with any questions and to schedule your evaluation
