Visiting The Store
New patients who visit the store are asked to present a Maryland ID as well as the certification form the state registered with a doctor. From there, patients will fill out basic intake paperwork with contact information, medical history, and consumption guidelines. Next, patients will meet with a dispensary agent to discuss ailments and their goals with using cannabis. The patient and agent will work together to find the best products to fit any needs. It is important to note that a doctor will only give you a recommendation to use cannabis, it isn’t until you visit a dispensary that an agent will be able to help you find products that are best fit for you.
