Buying Medical Marijuana in Florida
Once approved, your ID card will arrive in the mail within 30 days and can be used to buy marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state such as Knox Medical in Fort Myers and Compassionate Cannabis Clinics of Venice. The professional staff at your chosen dispensary will verify your ID and find out more about your health condition so they can recommend the best types, strains, and doses of marijuana for your treatment plan. You may buy marijuana in forms such as vapes, oils, edibles, and tinctures. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida state law.
As a legal resident of Florida, you may qualify to legally use medical marijuana to treat your chronic health condition. Schedule an appointment with a licensed doctor today to find out more.
Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
Florida has made it legal for residents of the state who qualify to purchase and use medical marijuana in their treatment plans. To qualify, you must be at least 18 years of age and have one of the qualifying conditions including glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, Crohn’s disease, and ALS. Terminal conditions also qualify. If you meet these criteria, you must be seen in-person by a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will verify your condition by going through your health records. He or she will also determine what other forms of treatment you have attempted in the past. If the doctor believes you would make a good medical cannabis patient, a written recommendation will be issued and you can then apply for an ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
