  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

How do I get certified for medical cannabis in Guam?

At this time, Leafwell does not operate in Guam.


Is telemedicine allowed for medical cannabis consultations in Guam?

Yes, telemedicine is legal in Guam and you can get certified for cannabis online.


How much cannabis can I possess in Guam with an MMJ Card?

Medical marijuana patients may possess up to 2.5 ounces.

A person aged 21 or over may possess up to one ounce of cannabis and either 8 grams of cannabis concentrate or cannabis infused products containing up to 800 mg of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

An adult may possess the cannabis produced by the cannabis plants grown on their property.


Both medical marijuana patients and adult user can grow up to 6 mature plants and up to 12 immature plants on their property. The right to grow may only exist until dispensaries are running.


Does Guam accept cards from other countries?

Guam’s medical marijuana laws only apply to the residents of the territory. Guam does not recognize other states’ medical marijuana cards, and does not have reciprocity.


Will my Guam card be accepted in other countries?

Some other states recognize medical marijuana cards from other states with a working medical cannabis program. This is called “reciprocity”. A medical marijuana card issued by the territory of Guam is recognized by some states in the US.

The following states accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:

  • Arizona
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Montana
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Oklahoma
  • Puerto Rico
  • Rhode Island
  • US Virgin Islands
  • Utah
  • Washington, D.C.

However, this does not always mean you can purchase cannabis at a medical marijuana dispensary (non-medical adult use is fine) – just that you are protected by the state’s medical marijuana laws to some extent. It is wise to call the dispensary ahead if you are a medical cannabis patient from another state and you intend on purchasing medical marijuana.

The qualifying condition usually has to match between states, so if your qualifying condition is accepted in one state and not your visiting state, your recommendation is not necessarily valid. You are also beholden to the visiting state’s medical marijuana laws, not the state that issued your card.

The following states accept out-of-state applications, allowing a visiting patient application to use medical cannabis for the duration of their stay:

  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Hawaii
  • West Virginia (cancer patients only)

Are there employment laws protecting medical cannabis card holders in Guam?

Employers are not required to accommodate medical cannabis use for employees, and patients who use medical marijuana are not necessarily entitled to a waiver of employer’s drug test under state disability law.


What are the medical cannabis product testing requirements in Guam?

Medical cannabis in Guam must be tested for microbials, residual solvents, metals, pesticides, chemicals, mold, mildew and filth. Cannabinoid potency must also be tested for.


Where is it safe to purchase cannabis in Guam?

In all states with a medical marijuana program, the only way to purchase medicinal cannabis products is via a legally-licensed dispensary or pharmacy, or another legally designated space to purchase cannabis. Only those with a legal license to sell cannabis can actually do so.


Where is it safe to consume marijuana in Guam?

All states with a medical marijuana program have some restrictions on where a person can legally use cannabis. Near schools, nurseries, parks or other places where children are expected to be, using cannabis is illegal. Use of cannabis on or in federal land or buildings, hospitals or any other such healthcare space is also illegal. Private members club and landowners may also prohibit cannabis use on their property or restrict it at their discretion.

The safest place to use medical cannabis is in the safety of your own home. It is wise to use common sense and generally keep consumption out of public view, and utilize discreet consumption methods wherever possible.
