Florida Medical Marijuana Eligibility

In order to qualify for medical cannabis in the state of Florida, you first have to visit an authorized physician who will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine if medical marijuana may benefit you.

Next, the physician will make an assessment, based on your condition, of whether medical marijuana is beneficial to you. The state has provided a list of chronic conditions that are common under eligibility but others that are comparable in class or kind can also be acceptable. Once this is approved by your physician, he or she will make a recommendation for medical marijuana and establish a medical care plan for your specific ailment.

Finally, once you have your medical marijuana recommendation, your physician will register you with the Florida Department of Health’s Compassionate Use database. This will allow you to obtain your medical marijuana from a dispensary licensed by the Florida Department of Health.
