The department recommends speaking to your health care professional or scheduling an appointment with a physician that has completed the training required for ordering medical cannabis for patients to determine if medical marijuana products are right for you or your loved one. If approved, your doctor will enter your personal information and dosage recommendation into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry, where it will be saved and stored for the duration of your treatment.
The Florida Department of Health has created a system for issuing and renewing Medical Marijuana Registry identification cards for patients and their caregivers. In combination with the Medical Marijuana Use Registry, identification cards will further allow patients and caregivers to quickly demonstrate that they are registered in the Compassionate Use Registry.
Florida rule 64-4.011, F.A.C. requires all patients and legal representatives to have a valid Compassionate Use Registry identification card to obtain low-THC cannabis, medical cannabis, or a cannabis delivery device.
To apply for a Compassionate Use Registry identification card, a patient must:
• Be a Florida resident
• Be a qualified patient in the Compassionate Use Registry
• Submit a completed application to the Office of Compassionate Use
Call us today to schedule your patient consultation.
The Office of Medical Marijuana Use maintains a list of physicians who have completed the required education course. Any physician who holds an active, unrestricted license as a physician under Chapter 458, F.S. or an osteopathic physician under Chapter 459, F.S. may take the required course and examination.
