A caregiver is a person who is registered with the state and is authorized to purchase cannabis products on behalf of a qualifying patient.
Before you can assign a caregiver to a sale, you need to add caregiver information to a patient's profile.
Do not create a separate patient or customer profile for a caregiver unless they are purchasing for themself.

If a caregiver is purchasing on behalf of multiple patients in a single visit, ring up separate sales for each patient, repeating the steps above for each sale.
