Where Do I Buy Medical Marijuana?
After you submit your application, your marijuana ID card will be issued to you within 30 days if approved. The card is valid for one year and can be renewed by scheduling a follow-up meeting with your doctor. This card allows you to purchase cannabis at any licensed dispensary in the state such as Knox Medical and Trulieve in Gainesville. The professional staff at these dispensaries can help you navigate which treatment option is for you. Though you may not buy any type of marijuana that can be smoked under Florida state law, you can buy other types such as pills, topicals, and edibles. The dispensary staff will be able to answer any questions you might have about the best type of cannabis for you.
If you’ve tried other treatment plans or you don’t like the side effects of your current medication, consider scheduling an appointment with a doctor who can determine if you’re an ideal medical marijuana candidate.
