Several of MariCare Wellness' Providers are registered with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission and are able to certify patients, ensuring patients can be seen by the practitioner who's experience best matches their condition. In order to ensure the best possible experience for patients they offer visits either in person at their Bowie MD office or online via a secured telemedicine portal.

I arrived early and as soon as M.Toussaint, CRNP arrived, she led me to the office. My medical conditions were discussed as well as explaining all about CBD, terpenes, THC, etc.. My questions were answered in detail and I felt comfortable. I will continue to be a patient at MariCare Wellness because of the discrete, professional services and cordial staff.
Office and staff are very welcoming with no wait time. Personable, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Easily relatable and makes you very comfortable. You leave your appointment confident to move forward in your journey to good health. Vernicia was excellent.
