Buying Medical Marijuana in Florida
With your ID card, you can buy medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state including Knox Medical and Trulieve in Jacksonville. At the dispensary, the staff will verify your ID and help you choose the right marijuana products based on your medical condition, symptoms, and goals for using cannabis. You may purchase marijuana in forms such as oils, vapes, sprays, and edibles. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under Florida state law. You can buy your products on-site and begin your treatment plan immediately.

Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Florida
Florida has made medical marijuana legal for those residents who qualify. You must be 18 years of age or older and have a qualifying medical condition to be considered eligible. Those conditions include HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, ALS, Parkinson’s, and similar conditions causing chronic non malignant pain. Terminal conditions also qualify for marijuana use. The next step to qualify is to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go through your health history and determine what you have tried in the past to treat your condition. If the doctor believes you meet the qualifications, a written recommendation will be issued so you can apply for an ID card with the Florida Department of Health. If approved, your card will arrive in the mail and is good for one year. You may renew your card by having a follow-up meeting with your doctor.
