What Do I Need to Know About Qualifying for Medical Marijuana?
Those who qualify have one of the conditions that are deemed treatable by cannabis under Florida law. These include any terminal condition, a condition that causes chronic non malignant pain, and conditions such as epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder, and glaucoma. You must also be at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the state. The next step is to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor who will go over your health history and learn more about your condition, symptoms, and other treatment attempts. If he or she believes you would be a good candidate for medical marijuana, a written recommendation will be issued. This must be included with your application for an ID card to the Florida Department of Health. Once approved, your card will arrive in the mail within 30 days.
What Do I Need to Know About Purchasing Medical Marijuana?
With your card, you can legally purchase marijuana at any licensed dispensary in the state including Curaleaf and Knox Medical in Orlando. At the dispensary, the professional staff will verify your ID and find out more about your health condition so they can recommend the right types and doses of cannabis. Though smoking marijuana is still illegal under state law, you will be able to buy it in forms such as sprays, edibles, and vapes.
