Where Do I Buy Medical Marijuana?
You cannot purchase medical marijuana at a licensed dispensary in Florida unless you have a state-issued ID marijuana card. There are a few different dispensaries near you and all have helpful professional staff ready to help you. You can find both Trulieve and Knox Medical in nearby Orlando. A staff member can help you decide the appropriate strain and dose of non-smoked marijuana to treat your medical condition.

How Do I Qualify?
You must be a resident of Florida and at least 18 years old to purchase and use medical marijuana. You must also have a serious medical condition that causes chronic pain or otherwise affects your daily life. Qualifying conditions include HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Any terminal condition and those causing chronic non-malignant pain could also qualify. To legally purchase marijuana, you must make an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor in Florida. There are a few doctors near you in Orlando. Once a state-approved cannabis doctor examines you and your medical history, he or she will determine if you qualify to become a medical marijuana patient. If appropriate, the doctor will write you a recommendation. In order to receive your medical marijuana card, you need to submit the recommendation and an application to the Florida Department of Health. The card will arrive within 30 days in the mail after submitting the application.
