Frequently Asked Questions

For New Maryland Medical Cannabis Patients:

Any individual who lives in the state of Maryland whose provider recommends medical cannabis as a treatment option for a qualifying medical condition is eligible to register with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) as a patient.

Qualifying medical conditions include 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 that is severe and for which other treatments have been ineffective. A certifying doctor may recommend based on prior conditions or health history.

While the registration processes and requirements differ for adult and minor patients, both are completed online. 

The online application form must be completed and submitted in one session; you will not be able to save and complete the application at a later time.

You must have the required information and documents in an electronic format ready for upload before starting the application process. Please carefully review the requirements below and the appropriate guidance documents to ensure you are prepared to complete the application before beginning the process.

Patients in hospice care may submit a letter from the attending hospice physician instead of a recent photo. The letter must be from the Attending of Hospice Record (AOHR) physician on hospice letterhead stating that the patient is a hospice patient under his or her care. It may be uploaded in either .jpg or .pdf format.

Evermore Cannabis Company Products

Flower in Pre-Packed 3.5g, 14g, or Pre-Rolled Joints. We cultivate three types of flower: Foundations, Selections, and Creations.

Foundations are widely recognized genetics that we bred to our standards to bring to our markets. Selections are phenotypes we have chosen from seed for various breeder qualities and market demands. Creations are cultivars we have pollinated, bred, and extensively tested to bring unique and exciting offerings to our markets.

Evermore produces some of the most sought-after concentrates on the East Coast. We produce Fresh Frozen Live Resin Cake Badder or Sugar alongside our unmatched Cold Cured Hash Rosin.

Evermore also produces vape products crafted with a variety of extraction methods. Full-gram disposable SLYDES and half-gram 510 threaded carts are specially manufactured with distillate and delicious, natural terpenes.

Half-gram disposable SLYDES and 510 threaded carts filled with live resin or rosin are occasionally added to our menus. However, due to their manufacturing time and requirements, these limited drops sell out fast.

Finally, our kitchen is making a delicious line of gelatin DISCOS now available in High Dose (40mg) and Medical Dose (10mg) in 6 incredible flavors: Fruit Punch, Tropical Tangerine, Strawberry, Cherry, Pink Lemonade and Radzberry! DISCOS also comes in delicious premium milk or dark chocolate. We also offer Live Resin, Live Rosin, Distillate, and Full Spectrum edible options, capsules, and more!

Evermore Foundations are clean, high-end offerings of classic and proven flavors. Foundational varieties exist across all markets and allow consistency between experiences. These strains are the backbone of the Evermore legacy and have the same name offered in many markets.

Selections are the hand-picked seeds/phenotypes of cultivars offered by world-famous breeders. Evermore strives to choose colors, flavors, and effects to make our selections of these varieties unique to the market. Strains in this class have new names with links to the parental foundational heritage.

Evermore Creations are varieties of cannabis for which Evermore has bred and completed extensive in-house trialing and are offered as exclusives. Creations combine the best of old legacy, new school, and craft. Strains in this class will have new family names and family trees flowing back to both the landraces and the hills of the west coast.

Concentrates are an excellent option for cannabis consumers looking for a more potent, flavorful product. Concentrates have high THC levels and other cannabinoids, as well as unique and exquisite terpene profiles extracted directly from harvested cannabis plants.

Most concentrates are named after their extraction method and texture. For example, Fresh Frozen Live Resin Cake Badder means that the extract was made from Freshly Frozen cannabis plants that were packed and frozen directly after harvest to preserve all of the live resin from the plant. Cake Badder denoted the consistency of the final product.

Fresh Frozen Live Resin is a high-quality extracted product produced by many manufacturers and perfected by the professionals at Evermore.

Freshly frozen plant material is packed to be frozen immediately upon harvest. This preserves the terpene content while the plant grows, enhancing both the flavor and effect of the final product.

Our extraction team uses only the finest crop of fresh frozen flower, ice, water, heat, and pressure to create the cleanest concentrate product on the market right now. The process is gentler than hydrocarbon extraction, so it preserves more of the plants’ most volatile cannabinoids and terpenes. Our cold-cured live rosin offers patients a balanced, full-spectrum experience.

Cannabis distillate is a highly purified form of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). The product looks like a thick oil that can be clear to amber in color.

Distillation eliminates everything from plant lipids to terpenes, and because each cannabinoid vaporizes at a different temperature, producers can easily manipulate the process to capture one cannabinoid. For this reason, THC distillate is a highly potent concentrate.

FSCO, or Full Spectrum Cannabis Oil, is a well-rounded representation of the entire cannabis plant. Our full extract not only contains pure cannabinoids but also the entire entourage of beneficial natural cannabis compounds. Some of our products use single-source FSCO, further showcasing the strain-specific nuances.

We’ve taken everything you love about a disposable vape and made it better! Using advanced iKrusher technology, we can now offer half-gram and full-gram units of our premium distillate in a lightweight, rechargeable, battery-attached vape pen.

Dance your pain away with our full line of gummie or chocolate Discos. Using our fully extracted cannabis oil in combination with carefully selected ingredients and expertly crafted recipes, we produce a full line of low and high-dose edibles in various flavors.

Live Resin Extract is crafted with a small batch of single-source Live Resin material to maximize terpene potential and authentic strain-specific flavor and effects. Full Spectrum Cannabis Oil is crafted to maximize medicinal effect and deliver a broad spectrum of cannabinoids to increase therapeutic effects. Distillate Extract is crafted to maximize flavor potential and deliver an activated THC dose.

Medical Cannabis 101

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of cannabis’ psychological effects. It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

Cannabinoid receptors are concentrated in some regions of the brain associated with thinking, memory, pleasure, coordination, and time perception. THC attaches to these receptors and activates them, affecting a person’s memory, pleasure, movements, thinking, concentration, coordination, and sensory and time perception, according to NIDA.

THC is one of many compounds found in the resin secreted by the glands of the cannabis plant. More of these glands are found around the plant’s reproductive organs than in any other area of the plant.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a trending ingredient in the natural products industry and is the focus of a new area of cannabis research. CBD is one of many cannabinoids, or molecules produced uniquely by the cannabis family. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the primary psychoactive element in cannabis), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not have a substantial effect on cognitive brain activity and does not cause the “high” associated with cannabis.

Every variety of the cannabis family produces cannabinoids, including hemp. While CBD and THC are the most well-known cannabinoids, there are many different types, and only recently have significant resources been poured into their study. Our brains have specific receptors designed to accept cannabinoids, known as CB1 and CB2. These receptors are responsible for the assimilation of cannabinoid molecules into your system, resulting in the psychoactive and immune responses correlated with cannabis consumption.

“Minor cannabinoids are divided into neutral, acidic, and various phytocannabinoids. Minor cannabinoids include cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabidiol acid (CBDA), cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabinolic acid (CBNA), cannabidivarin (CBDV), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), cannabigerovarin (CBGV), cannabichromevarin (CBCV), and others (Hanus, et al., 2016; Gülck and Möller, 2020).

Cannabinoids appear naturally in the cannabis plant in their acidic forms and are thought to confer antioxidant and defense mechanisms (insecticidal, antimicrobial, etc.) to the plant. Acidic cannabinoids undergo decarboxylation during heating and are converted to the corresponding neutral cannabinoids (Figure 1 ). For example, THCA is converted to Δ9-THC when cannabis is smoked or vaporized.

Some decarboxylation also occurs with time at room temperature and during exposure to light. Cannabis products intended to contain the acidic forms of cannabinoids nearly universally also contain low levels of cannabinoids in their neutral forms.

The varinic cannabinoids are considered rare but are now emerging as new targets of selective breeding. Varin compounds such as CBDV and THCV contain two fewer carbon atoms than their non-varin counterparts (CBD and Δ9-THC), endowing these cannabinoids with unique pharmacological properties (see below).

As described for the endocannabinoids, the overall pharmacological action of the minor cannabinoids often results from binding at both cannabinoid and “off-target” receptors. This combination of receptor-mediated actions makes them well-suited as multi-target therapeutic agents. While several minor cannabinoids, including CBN and THCV, bind to the CB1 receptor, they have significantly less binding activity when compared with Δ9-THC (Rhee et al., 1997; Zagzoog et al., 2020). To date, none of the minor cannabinoids have been clinically demonstrated to act as psychotropic drugs.”

Terpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in plants and some animals. They are responsible for the aromas, flavors, and colors of various vegetation types. In terms of cannabis, terpenes are what make certain strains smell or taste different from others.

They can also be processed into produce products, like cleaning solvents, pesticides, and dyes. Some even have therapeutic properties.

Terpenes are thought to protect plants from harsh weather and predators. As for what they do in humans, that is still a mystery. However, cannabis researchers and consumers alike are increasingly looking at terpenes as a way to classify cannabis products and predict their effects.

The main hypothesis is that the terpene profile — the dominant terpenes — of a strain works in tandem with the cannabinoid content — the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and other cannabinoids — to produce the effects people associate with different strains.

For example, they might explain why two different strains with the same level of THC produce such different experiences.

You’re likely already acquainted with the plant’s two most famous compounds, THC and CBD. However, many other compounds the plant produces in lesser abundance seem to play a supporting role in the overall effects of a particular strain.

This theory that various cannabis compounds work together to create unique effects and benefits has been coined “the entourage effect.”

When we smoke or vaporize cannabis, our bodies take in hundreds of botanical compounds. Each arrives with unique effects and benefits, and their behavior may change in the presence of other compounds. This is the entourage effect.

To illustrate the entourage effect in cannabis, let us work with the two compounds you’re likely familiar with: THC and CBD. In a 2010 study, patients with cancer pain were given either a pure THC extract or an extract containing near-equal levels of both THC and CBD—patients given the THC/CBD combo reported having less pain.

However, cannabis is far more than just THC and CBD. It also produces other cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, CBG, and dozens more—as well as terpenes, which are aromatic compounds also readily found in the essential oils of lavender, orange, black pepper, eucalyptus, and much more. With such a diversity of valuable compounds in cannabis, the possible synergies could make your head spin excitedly.

Topicals, edibles, vaporizers, and inhalable flower provide myriad administration methods for relief. You can apply cannabis topicals directly to skin-affected areas for relief. You can consume cannabis orally through an edible, tincture, or capsule to administer a long-lasting, full-bodied effect. Vaporizing or inhaling cannabis can be helpful for immediate and direct relief.

We always suggest that you start low and go slow when consuming cannabis. Depending on the administration method, you can experience various effects and on-set periods, so start by consuming a small amount and wait for 20-30 minutes to see how it makes you feel before considering additional consumption.

Adult-Use Cannabis

Purchase and possession of cannabis for adult use became legal in Maryland for adults over 21 on July 1, 2023.

A person 21 years or older may lawfully cultivate up to two plants in their home, out of public view.

Likewise, a household may cultivate a maximum of two plants, regardless of how many persons over age 21 live there. Individuals under 21 are not permitted to cultivate cannabis plants. The General Assembly may also adopt additional home grow laws for medical cannabis patients during its 2023 legislative session.
