What did Amendment 2
The passage of Amendment 2 supported the common view that medical marijuana could help people suffering from various medical conditions. It provided a system that allows physicians to provide their patients with medical marijuana as vape, oils, sprays, capsules, and topicals if the physician concludes the benefits outweigh the potential health risk. The guidelines require a patient to obtain a medical marijuana card issued by the Florida Department of Health. This is only possible through a State licensed physician.
What’s the process
for someone getting a card?
The first step is to call us for a free pre-screening at 941-584-9840. If medical cannabis is considered a viable treatment option, then you can schedule a one-on-one consultation with our certified, knowledgeable physician. The patient will then register with the Florida Department of Health’s Medical Marijuana Use Registry. Once approved, patients will have access to purchase medical cannabis from licensed dispensaries throughout the state.
What are the qualifying conditions?
The list includes cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), ALS, terminal illnesses, or other debilitating medical conditions. Debilitating conditions can include chronic pain, anxiety, depression, endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, sleep disorders, arthritis, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, and gastrointestinal disorders. Our website provides the complete list.
Where do approved
patients obtain their products?
All products must be purchased at a state-licensed dispensary. One of the dispensaries we work with is Surterra Wellness. They have several regional locations and offer free delivery anywhere in Florida.
