Florida’s Best Medical Marijuana Doctors

Before purchasing cannabis from a medical marijuana treatment center (or dispensary), Florida patients must first qualify for a medical marijuana certification; CannaMD provides qualified patients with the state-required recommendation to complete this process.

Focused on evidence-based application of medical cannabis research, CannaMD offers a streamlined pre-qualification process, allowing patients to spend more one-on-one time with physicians.

CannaMD also walks patients through the entire experience, step-by-step (with tons of free educational resources along the way!). Our mission is to provide alternative medicine to patients in need, with as little headache as possible.

CannaMD is proud to feature a network of compassionate, experienced doctors. To learn more about our state-licensed, board-certified physicians, please click the button below.
