How to Buy Medical Marijuana
Take your ID card to a nearby dispensary such as Curaleaf in Orlando or A Green Relief in Kissimmee to purchase products. The professional staff will ask questions to learn more about your symptoms and your goals for using medical marijuana in your treatment plan. This will help them recommend non-smoked types of marijuana such as pills, edibles, and vapes. Smoking marijuana is still illegal under state law.

How to Qualify for Medical Marijuana
Florida has legalized medical marijuana for those who meet specific criteria. To qualify, you must be at least 18 years old, a legal resident of the state, and have a condition that can be treated with medical cannabis. Conditions include epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder, glaucoma, and those that cause chronic non malignant pain. To begin the qualification process, you must be seen in-person by a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will verify your condition and go through your health records to determine past treatment attempts. If the doctor believes you would make a good medical marijuana patient, he or she will issue a written recommendation. This must be included with your application for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of Health. If you are approved, your card will arrive in the mail within 30 days and can be used to legally purchase marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state.
