Alternative medicines like cannabis are now accessible for patients in Maryland, and you can get your medical marijuana card online. Many patients with chronic health conditions do not find the solutions they need through conventional medicine. A traditional approach that does not always take a more holistic approach to identify underlying health problems.

You don’t have to live with chronic pain or symptoms that impact the quality of your life. Milca Kaplan is a Certified Nurse Practitioner at Metro Wellness. A prescribing practitioner with more than ten years of patient care and therapeutic experience, Milca A. Kaplan specializes in holistic and alternative therapies for chronic health, addiction, women’s health, and other services.

At Metro Wellness in Rockville, Maryland, patients can schedule an online telemedicine appointment with Milca Kaplan, CRNP. Your medical cannabis health evaluation is the second step patients need to complete to become registered with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC).

What Conditions and Cannabis Therapies Can Help Chronic Health Symptoms?

Cannabis is perhaps one of the oldest and best-documented analgesics in history. It is no wonder that many patients who suffer unresolved chronic pain find relief with medical cannabis treatments.

Some of the health conditions and symptoms that may qualify you to become registered in the MMCC include:

  • Cachexia (wasting syndrome)
  • Severe and persistent chronic pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Glaucoma

Some types of cannabinoids are highly effective at reducing inflammation, the root cause of chronic diseases. Cannabis may also provide some preventative health benefits by addressing hypertension, inflammation, and other symptoms.

The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission also allows physicians to recommend patients who may not have one or more standard qualifying health conditions. Practitioners can (at their discretion) recommend patients that have any debilitating and chronic symptom or disorder. This accommodation means that patients with rare diseases or more obscure symptoms may still qualify for medical cannabis in Maryland.

How Can I Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Maryland?

If you have one or more qualifying health conditions accepted by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC), you may receive your medical marijuana card. The first step is to complete your registration as a patient with the MMCC.

To get started, you will need to have:

  • A valid and accessible personal email account (address).
  • A Social Security Number (you will be required to provide the last four digits for your profile).
  • An electronic (scanned) copy of a valid and non-expired government-issued photo ID.
  • Proof of Maryland residency, which can include government mail, utility bills, etc. addressed to the patient at the home address in Maryland.
  • A passport quality photograph

If you are a parent or guardian and registering on behalf of a minor, there is a different registration process for caregivers, and a few extra steps. Designated caregivers must be 21 years or older in Maryland to qualify as a legal delegate for medical cannabis therapies for a minor.
