Florida Medical Marijuana FAQ

Where can I get Medical Marijuana in Miami? 
Once you receive your registry ID card in the mail or temporary ID card via email from the state, contact the local dispensary of your choice to pick up your medication or arrange delivery.

What’s the difference between medical cannabis and low-THC cannabis? 
Low-THC cannabis is a cannabis plant, the dried flowers of which contain 0.8 percent or less of THC and more than 10 percent of CBD weight for weight. This is the type of plant used for the production of products to be dispensed from a licensed medical marijuana treatment center. [x]

How do I get a medical marijuana card in Miami, Florida?
Patients must be entered into the Registry by a qualified physician to receive a card. Applications may then be submitted online through the Medical Marijuana Use Registry website or mailed to the Office of Medical Marijuana Use, along with a $75 registration fee. The Department accepts applications from patients and legal representatives. [x]

How do I renew my medical marijuana card in Florida? 
To maintain an active Medical Marijuana Use Registry identification card, a patient and/or legal representative must annually submit a renewal application, along with the application fee and any required accompanying documents to the department forty-five (45) days prior to the card expiration date. The application can be found here.

How much cannabis can a medical marijuana doctor order for each patient in Florida? 
A physician may not issue a physician certification for more than three 70-day supply limits of marijuana. [x]

Can I travel with Medical Marijuana in Florida? 
Medical marijuana is legal throughout the state of Florida but remains federally illegal, so medical marijuana product may NOT be transported across state lines.

What conditions qualify for Medical Marijuana in Miami? 
The Florida Department of Health, physicians, dispensing organizations, and patients are bound by Article X Section 29 of the Florida Constitution. Medical marijuana may be recommended for a “Debilitating Medical Condition,” which in this case means cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or other debilitating medical conditions of the same kind or class as or comparable to those enumerated, and for which a physician believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient. You can view an expanded list of conditions which often qualify for cannabis-based treatment here.

What do I need to bring to my appointment? 
MMTC providers request that you bring supporting documentation with your diagnosis or prior treatment to the clinic at the time of your initial appointment. In addition, please bring identification or proof of Florida residency. if you have questions about which documents to bring with you, give us a call at 850-906-5000.

Do I need the Registry ID card first? 
No. In fact, a medical cannabis provider such as those at our clinics must qualify you and complete an assessment before you can be assigned a patient ID number, which you need in order to apply for the card through the state Office of Medical Marijuana Use.

Do you take my insurance? 
Unfortunately, medical cannabis is still federally illegal, therefore no insurance company has elected to cover cannabis-related treatments.

Is my medical information secure? 
We take all necessary measures to be 100% HIPAA compliant. Any personal health information you provide is completely safe and secure.
