CannaMD Opens New Jacksonville and Gainesville Offices

Jacksonville Medical Marijuana Doctors
CannaMD, a leading medical marijuana clinic in Florida, has expanded its network with the inauguration of new offices in Jacksonville and Gainesville. The clinic assists patients in qualifying for medical marijuana certification, a prerequisite for purchasing marijuana from a medical marijuana treatment center. Dr. Caroline S. Rains and Dr. Michael Zhang, physicians at CannaMD, will be attending to patients at the new locations, advocating for the therapeutic benefits of cannabis. The state of Florida recognizes a range of conditions for medical marijuana treatment, including ALS, cancer, Crohn's disease, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and post-traumatic stress disorder, among others.

With a strong presence in South and Central Florida, and newly opened offices in Jacksonville and Gainesville, CannaMD is now one of the fastest growing networks of medical marijuana clinics in the state.

New Medical Marijuana Offices

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

CannaMD physician, Caroline. S. Rains, M.D., will be seeing patients at the new Gainesville location (235 S. Main Street, St. 201) and believes strongly in the healing properties of cannabis:

It relieves pain and other serious symptoms and in many cases helps patients to discontinue opioids and other medications.

Fellow CannaMD physician, Michael Zhang, M.D., concurs and will begin practicing at the Jacksonville location (4600 Touchton Rd. E, Building 100, St. 150) effective immediately.

Editor’s Note (2/2019): Following Dr. Rains’s retirement, Dr. Zhang has assumed care of CannaMD‘s Gainesville office, as well.

Florida currently recognizes the following conditions for medical marijuana treatment:

Florida’s Amendment 2 also allows for treatment of other “diagnosable, debilitating conditions of like, kind, or class” (such as anxiety, depression, and migraines).
