Maryland’s Cannabis Program is operated by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission. The application period is currently closed to new entrants until further updates. Current applications are under review with selected companies advancing to Stage 2. 

Growers (or cultivators) are responsible for growing cannabis. Growers harvest mature plants and transfer them to processors.

Tracking System Info

The state of Maryland requires cultivation operations to use a seed-to-sale tracking software. Flourish software offers seed-to-sale tracking as one of the core features and is designed to help cultivators stay compliant at all times.

A processor processes usable medical cannabis into medical cannabis concentrates, or medical cannabis-infused products.
