Learn About Cannabis

Become A Maryland Patient
Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission
The MMCC Patient Portal is the first step you need to take to register as a patient in Maryland. The process is relatively easy, but you must start by registering with the State of Maryland. Once you receive your patient number, you’ll be able to visit with a doctor to determine how cannabis can be used to alleviate your qualifying symptoms.
To qualify for the MD medical cannabis program, a patient must have a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition that causes: cachexia, anorexia, wasting syndrome, severe or chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or another chronic medical condition which is severe and for which other treatments have been ineffective.

The extracted and concentrated cannabinoids, terpenoids, waxes and fats from raw cannabis flower are used to create many concentrated and infused cannabis products.
Concentrates may be created from fresh frozen flower or dried flower or cannabis leaf. Most concentrates can be used with a dab rig or oil pen. An activated shatter or wax may be consumed orally and raw.
Concentrates are also available in a variety of purities from Full Extract Concentrates to Distillates. These are best enjoyed through a variety of specific methods and can also be added on top of your favorite flower. Potency varies between cannabinoids from high >98% THC isolate to balanced THC and CBD ratios, to just 100% pure CBD. Terpene contents range from 1.5% to nearly 30% for most products.
Shatter is scientifically referred to as an “Absolute”. Shatter is a stable translucent concentrate derived from C02, Butane, or Ethanol. Shatter is the result of washing the cannabis in the solvent, dewaxing (removing fats, lipids and waxes), and vacuum purging of solvent under low heat. When activated for edible consumption through decarboxylation non-dewaxed shatter can be considered a full extract concentrate oil (FECO/RSO).
Wax is the result of slightly heating up the shatter and whipping the shatter into a waxy consistency. This waxy consistency offers easier handling to be used in a Dab Rig, Dab Straw, or Dab Pen. Wax is also known as earwax, budder, sap.
Sappy Wax is result of the high terpenes extracted from cannabis remaining in the concentrate. For easier handling, place in refrigerator for five to ten minutes to temporarily harden and then transfer to a glass container if needed for easier dosing and consumption.
Sugar Wax or Shatters that start to sugar are the result of the high terpenes in the original extract and the high THC content of the original extract trying to separate to return to their normal state after the process of extraction. THCa starts to crystallize and the terpenes start to separate.
Terp Sauces are terpene rich concentrates usually with more than ten percent terpenes. These are generally a liquid like consistency and best used in a dab rig or dripped on top of raw flower or a pre-rolled joint (PRJ).
THC Isolate is a slowly mature crystal representation of the THC molecule. It is nearly pure and usually mixed back into the previously separated terpene fraction. This can be used in any fashion that another concentrate can be used.
Distillates are the distilled fraction of the whole concentrate. These are usually of the highest purity and can have terpenes of various types added back. This product, because it is activated during the distillation process, may be eaten raw but is usually used in a vape pen.
