Qualifying for Medical Marijuana
To qualify for medical marijuana in Florida, you must be at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the state. You must also have one of the chronic health conditions that can be legally treated with cannabis. These include glaucoma, cancer, HIV/AIDS, post-traumatic stress disorder, and similar conditions that cause chronic non malignant pain. If you have one of these conditions, you need to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. He or she will go through your health history and determine more details about your condition including what you have done to treat it in the past. If you are deemed a good candidate for medical cannabis, a written recommendation will be issued that you need to include with your application for a state-issued ID card.
Purchasing Medical Marijuana?
If approved, you will receive your ID card in the mail within 30 days and may use it for one year to purchase medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state. Dispensaries near you include Knox Medical and Curaleaf in Lake Worth. Show the professional staff your ID and tell them more about your condition including current symptoms and how the condition affects your daily life. This will help the staff recommend the right doses, types, and strains of marijuana for your situation. You can purchase marijuana on-site at the dispensary and take it home with you that day to begin treatment.
