In the state of Florida, to get your medical marijuana card/prescription, you need to see a certified physician and that is where Marijuana Care Clinic comes in. We work along side Dr.Ayden Cooper, an internal medicine physician, who evaluates our patients and registers them to the Department of Health’s “Medical Marijuana Use Registry”. In order to be registered, patients are required to have Florida residency and a qualifying condition along with the medical records with the diagnosis.
Once the patient is registered, they have to submit a state application for the finalization of the process to obtain the card. That application has a yearly fee of $77.75. Once processed, it will take 10 business days to be approved by the state and start the journey with medical marijuana at any medical marijuana treatment center such as MÜV by altmed, Surterra Wellness, and Trulieve.
You will receive a 210-day recommendation aka a “prescription” from Dr.Cooper (The 210 day certification is implemented by the Department of Health). Every 210 days, the patient has to return for a recertification aka a “refill”.
What if I have my Florida’s Concealed Carry license?
If you have your Florida Concealed Carry License, you can still obtain your medical marijuana card, BUT there will be restrictions. You will only be able to purchase guns at privately owned shops or gun shows, where they do not run FEDERAL backgrounds. Since Medical Marijuana is FEDERALLY illegal, if they run a federal background check, they will not be able to sell you the weapon meaning you won’t be able to purchase at public gun shops.
Does insurance cover anything?
No, Medical Marijuana is FEDERALLY illegal. Payments are out of pocket for office visit, state application and the products at the dispensary.
Do I have to smoke?
No, there are many different ways of administering medical marijuana. We will get more into detail in the office visit but some of those forms include sublingual oils, creams, patches, vape pens, capsules, etc.
Will I get high?
Not if you don’t want to. There are many components to the marijuana plants that help with certain conditions and symptoms. Some of those components are non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t get you high. There are many ratios and strains that we can guide you through so you may still benefit from the plant’s medicinal properties without the psychoactive effects.
