Medical marijuana is available to qualifying patients across the state of Florida. Medical marijuana in Florida comes in a variety of forms from licensed dispensaries. Our medical cannabis physicians help guide you through the process from start to finish. We will help you register with the state, develop a treatment and dosage plan, and provide guidance all the way to making your first purchase at a local treatment center.
On November 8, 2016 Florida passed Amendment 2 which allows patients to legally access marijuana for medicinal purposes from quality controlled sources.
Where can you buy medical marijuana in Florida?
After obtaining your medical marijuana card, you are able to purchase approved products from treatment centers. To avoid possible police citations only make purchases from state approved and licensed sources. If pulled over with state-approved THC products, you will have to present your card to the officer and a proof of purchase from a licensed dispensary.
What can you get in licensed dispensaries?
In Florida dispensaries, medical marijuana patients can get tinctures, oils, extracts and now flowers. It is important to remember that medical cannabis is not covered under any insurance.

Commonly Treated Conditions:
Anxiety is defined as an extreme emotional responsive to events or uncertainty. Research has shown that one of the main phytocannabinoids present in marijuana – specifically cannabigerol (CBG) – has had positive effects on the brain receptors responsible for causing anxiety. Many patients reported feelings of euphoria, relaxation, heightened perception, sociability and creativity.
Cannabis use is highly prevalent among people suffering from chronic pain. According to a study published by Harvard Medical School, the use of cannabis as pharmacotherapy has resulted in significant improvement in patients’ chronic pain symptoms. Sleep and mood reportedly improved as well, and no serious adverse side effects were reported.
Depletion of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain leads to depression. THC has been found to be an effective antidepressant at low doses by increasing serotonin levels. Research has shown that THC has a positive effect on the endocannabinoid system and other chemical compounds in the brain responsible for regulating emotions.
Fibromyalgia interferes with the brain’s processing of pain signals, resulting in stronger feelings of pain in the body. Both major active cannabinoids present in cannabis – THC and CBD – have proven to be effective at blocking these heightened pain signals. Multiple studies have shown significant improvement in every fibromyalgia symptom marker after medical marijuana treatment.
Marijuana has been used as a treatment for migraines for over a century. Indeed, recent studies have shown cannabis to be effective in providing significant relief for migraine sufferers. Early cannabis users believed that smoking the leaves provided quickest relief of symptoms, while ingesting marijuana seemed to have longer-lasting effects, while each of these claims are currently being studied.
PTSD differs from other psychiatric disorders in that it has a clear point of onset. This anxiety disorder develops as a result of exposure to traumatic events. Marijuana has shown potential as a treatment for PTSD, as it may alleviate symptoms by prompting changes in the brain centers responsible for forming and retaining traumatic memories.
