Maitland Medical Marijuana
If you have a chronic medical condition, you have probably tried multiple treatments including alternative treatments, opioids, or even surgery. However, you may never have considered medical marijuana as a treatment option. Medical marijuana has actually been used for centuries to treat conditions that cause chronic pain, anxiety, or nausea. Now, under newly updated Florida laws, medical marijuana is legal for residents of the state who qualify. If you are over 18 years old and a legal resident of Maitland, medical marijuana may now be an option for you.
How Do I Buy Medical Marijuana?
If you are approved for an ID card, it should arrive in the mail within 30 days of application. You can then use this ID card to legally purchase marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state including Curaleaf and Knox Medical, both in Orlando. Under new Florida laws, the number of dispensaries licensed to sell marijuana has greatly expanded and it’s easy to find a professional dispensary near you. Once you have chosen the dispensary you’d like to work with, simply show the staff your ID card and tell them more about your condition, symptoms, and other considerations that may affect your treatment plan. This will help the staff recommend the proper types, doses, and strains of marijuana for you. Under Florida law, it is illegal to smoke marijuana, but you can purchase it in forms such as edibles, oils, and pills.
If you live in Maitland and believe medical marijuana might be an effective treatment for you, schedule an appointment with a licensed doctor today to find out if you qualify.
How Do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana?
To find out if you qualify, you must schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor in your area. At your appointment, the doctor will go through your medical history and determine if you suffer from a condition that could be treated with marijuana. Common conditions that benefit from this type of treatment include Crohn’s disease, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, and cancer. The doctor will also determine if you have tried other methods of treatment and why these methods proved unsuccessful. If you are found to be a good candidate for medical marijuana, a written recommendation will be issued. You must have this recommendation to apply for a state-issued ID card with the Florida Department of Health.
