Medical Marijuana Q&A

Who qualifies for a medical marijuana card in Maryland?

The state of Maryland allows current state residents to get a medical marijuana card if they meet certain requirements. There’s no minimum age requirement for a medical marijuana card in Maryland, but parents or legal guardians need to use their own information to obtain the card on behalf of their minor children. 

The specific conditions that qualify for treatment with medical marijuana include:

  •  Anorexia
  •  Cachexia
  •  Wasting syndrome
  •  Severe or chronic pain
  •  Severe nausea
  •  Seizures
  •  Severe or persistent muscle spasms
  •  Glaucoma
  •  Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

While these are the only named conditions that currently qualify for medical marijuana, it’s important to note that the state also allows patients with other conditions to receive a medical marijuana card if they have a persistent medical condition that is unresponsive to other treatments. 

This additional clause opens up medical marijuana to many more people because it allows highly trained medical care providers like Dr. Oyeneyin to use their specialized skills and knowledge to prescribe customized treatment plans incorporating medical marijuana. 

How do I get a medical marijuana card in Maryland?

First, you must visit the Maryland Cannabis Administration website to register. The four things you need to do so are:

  • An email address that you can access
  • Your complete social security number
  • A digital copy of your government-issued photo identification, such as a driver’s license, state-issued ID card, military ID, or US passport
  • Passport-sized digital photo (recent)

After you complete the registration process online, the next step is a visit to Healthyminds Wellness LLC. Dr. Oyeneyin is a registered provider with the Maryland Cannabis Administration, which enables him to make medical determinations regarding medical marijuana use among patients. 

After completing your exam, Dr. Oyeneyin can provide you with a certificate for medical marijuana if you qualify. You need this certificate to print a temporary ID card, which allows you to purchase marijuana from licensed state dispensaries. 

At Healthyminds Wellness LLC, Dr. Oyeneyin compassionately leads you through the application process, giving you personalized support, resources, knowledge, and the guidance you need every step of the way. 

Thanks to this unique streamlined approach to getting a medical marijuana card in Maryland, you can relax and rest assured that you’ll be able to start a new treatment plan that greatly improves your quality of life as soon as possible.
