Before purchasing cannabis from a medical marijuana treatment center, Florida patients must first qualify for a medical marijuana certification; CannaMD provides qualified patients with the state-required recommendation to complete this process.
How do I qualify for a medical marijuana card?
Medical cannabis became legal in Florida in 2016, with the passing of the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative, also known as Amendment 2. Rules for use and administration were outlined several months later by Senate Bill 8A.
According to Florida state law, patients suffering from the following conditions may qualify for medical marijuana treatment: ALS, cancer, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Senate Bill 8A also allows for treatment of other “diagnosable, debilitating conditions of like, kind, or class” (such as anxiety, depression, and migraines), as well as terminal conditions and chronic nonmalignant pain.
There Is No Waiting Period To Qualify For Medical Marijuana
Florida residents and seasonal (“snowbird”) residents may be eligible. Senate Bill 8A defines the term “seasonal resident” as any person who temporarily resides in Florida for a period of at least 31 consecutive days in each calendar year, maintains a temporary residence in Florida, returns to the state or jurisdiction of his or her residence at least one time during each calendar year, and is registered to vote or pays income tax in another state or jurisdiction.
Once eligibility is confirmed by a CannaMD physician, patients may apply for a medical marijuana card from the Florida Department of Health. A state-issued card is required to purchase cannabis from a medical marijuana treatment center (or dispensary).
Medical marijuana may be administered via smoking, vaporizer, or as an oil, spray, or tincture (edible products remain prohibited).
