Medical Marijuana card: Approved medical conditions in Florida

Posted on 


Medical Marijuana card Florida: Are you eligibile?

Medical Marijuana has been legal in Florida since the passage of an amendment in 2014. Patients need to have one or more qualifying medical conditions to be eligible. A Florida physician must certify and approve them before the state of Florida can issue them a Medical Marijuana card.


It was a personal tragedy in his family that forced Dr. Kumar to rethink the benefits of Medical marijuana.

He has been able to help hundreds of cancer patients get the benefit of Medial marijuana.

As a member of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and the Society of Integrative Oncology, Dr. Kumar is passionate about helping his patients with natural, integrative therapies that are safe and effective.

Medical Conditions that are eligible for a Medical Marijuana card in Florida: 


MMJ Registry Florida:

Certified patients are placed in an electronic registry with the state of Florida. There is a small fee of around 75$ paid to the state to issue you the MMJ Card.  Each patient is matched with his recommending physician in the registry. An order for the type of medical marijuana and the amount is placed in the registry by the physician.  The order is filled by a dispensary much like that of a pharmacy filling a prescription.


MMJ Dispensary:

Many patients mistake the physicians’ office as an MMJ Dispensary.  It is illegal for Physicians in Florida to sell Medical Marijuana. The patients have to contact a certified MMJ Dispensary in their area to process their orders.
