Guam Cannabis License Guidelines

Guam Cannabis Control Board

Licensing and Enforcement Criteria

The Medical Cannabis Program (MCP) came from Public Law 33-220, also known as the “Joaquin (KC) Concepcion, II Compassionate Cannabis Use Act of 2013”, allows the beneficial use of medical cannabis by qualified patients to alleviate symptoms caused by their debilitating medical conditions and their medical treatments. The rules and regulations that govern the medical cannabis program were passed in 2018 and became Public Law 34-80. With the enactment of Public Law 34-125, qualified patients and designated caregivers are now authorized to cultivate medical cannabis at home until a dispensary is operational.  

Medical Cannabis Written Certifications are valid for one (1) year from the date of practitioner’s certification and must be in the Qualified Patient’s possession when carrying medical cannabis.

Guam Cannabis License Types

At this time medical/recreational cannabis is legal in Guam, however, due to government leaders unable to finalize regulations, no testing facilities have been established so no dispensaries have been opened. It is legal to grow your own cannabis if you have a medical card and the proper permit.

Home Cultivation Permit

A patient or patient’s designated caregiver may posses no more than 6 flowering plants and 12 juvenile plants at a given time.  Cannabis plants must be secured in a room with a lockable door and harvested cannabis must be stored in a secure area and accessible only to the qualified patient or designated caregiver.
