Gainesville Medical Marijuana Doctors

CannaMD is proud to provide compassionate care to residents of Gainesville, Florida. Known for attractions such as the Florida Museum of Natural History, Matheson History Museum, Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, Ichetucknee Springs State Park, the University of Florida, and Santa Fe College, Gainesville is part of Alachua County, Florida (which includes other popular cities such as Alachua, Archer, Newberry, High Springs, and Micanopy).

In 2016, Floridians – including Alachua County residents in Gainesville – voiced overwhelming support for the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative (also known as Amendment 2). With the passing of Amendment 2, followed by Senate Bill 8A (which put into action rules for use and administration), residents became eligible to receive compassionate care treatment from qualified Gainesville medical marijuana doctors.

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

Very good experience. If your in a place in life that you need to try this medical option I would recommend this company. No sales pressure, compassionate to your medical condition. I would recommend you take a few hours and have a basic understanding of the rules and regulations for Florida before the visit. Easy to do with basic internet searches. This allows the visit to focus more on your medical concerns. Have some notes and questions before the visit. Recommended.

Fantastic level of care from Dr. Zhang! He genuinely cares about his patients, unlike other Drs I've been hearing about in FL. As a prior Colorado Med MJ patient relocate, I was very impressed & pleased with his knowledge base and how he was on same page as my Dr & specialists here. I struggle greatly with many conventional prescription side effects & need to take a more natural approach to my multiple conditions. I highly recommend CannaMD, Dr. Zhang in Gainesville, FL. Additionally he showed great concern for me regarding needing MRI's my Drs recommended for new issues which had arisen. You will not be dissapointed seeing CannaMD Dr. Zhang!

My family has been encouraging me to start this process as they know how much I dislike harmful pharmaceuticals that the average doctor likes to push on you for a lifetime. Not so with Dr. Zhang! We had a very enlightening discussion about my issues along with suggestions for natural relief. CannaMD has made this process professional and informative in a friendly, and comfortable atmosphere. Thank you to Gloria and Dr. Zhang for helping me reach my goal of natural health!

I received telephone calls to remind me that my prescription was expiring. I was thus able to make a timely appointment. Upon early arrival, there was a very short (3-5 minute) wait. The physician, Dr. Rains, is very professional and knowledgeable.

I was very nervous when I went for my first visit. The staff was very kind and made me feel very comfortable, from the person that greeted me and processed me into the computer, to the Doctor that met with me and reviewed and discussed my medical file and medical issues with me. I am very glad I chose this clinic as I was very comfortable and the nervousness went away immediately. I would recommend this clinic highly if you need help with your pain and medical issues.
