Will cannabis give me the psychological head rush also known as the “high”?
Show answer

That chemical component is known as THC. The strength can be controlled with your dosage, depending on the condition and the physician’s recommendation and what you are comfortable with. THC is very beneficial to boost other chemical properties in the plant but, it can also be given in a very low dosage, that will not affect you psychologically.

Is it good for senior citizens?
Show answer

In many cases senior citizens have reached out to us due to pain and discomfort from common age-related conditions, such as: rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and found relief after treatment. Cannabis is a natural anti-inflammatory which could potentially replace other harmful medications commonly prescribed for many of these age-related conditions.

Why is it so expensive compared to California?
Show answer

Marijuana laws, and the requirements on the recommending physicians, vary by state. In Florida, the process to obtain your Cannabis card, has not been streamlined to run as efficiently as it could run. This leads to substantially more paperwork submissions and longer processing times. Apart from this, doctors need to submit for medicine refills every 70 days. Florida state law also requires patients to be re-evaluated every 7 months (210 days). This means more work for doctors because of the extra time spent on every patient.

Do I have to be 18 in order to obtain an evaluation?
No Show answer

No, but you need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

I have a cannabis card from another state, am I a legal medical marijuana user in Florida?
No Show answer

The state of Florida does not have reciprocity with other states. To obtain your cannabis card within this state, and be able to purchase cannabis from a Medical Marijuana Treatment Center, you would need to be evaluated by a certified-physician, who can register you in the Florida State Medical Marijuana Use Registry.
