Want to Learn More About Medical Marijuana?

If you are interested in obtaining a medical marijuana card, the first step is to meet with your doctor to determine whether you have a qualifying condition that could benefit from medical marijuana. This visit may require you to bring supplemental documents, such as prescriptions, health records, and other information that will help the doctor evaluate your condition.

Answers to the Most Asked Questions

If you are a first time marijuana user, you may have several questions about marijuana use, or about a medical marijuana prescription. Below are some of the frequently asked questions we think will be helpful in answering some of the questions you may have.

I have my Medical Marijuana Card, what do I do now?

If you have any questions about orders/recommendations from your doctor, send us an email at info@freedommarijuanacard.com and we will happily assist you.

How does the recommendation process/registration work?

If your physician or nurse practitioner agrees to give you a recommendation for medical marijuana, then you’re well on your way to becoming an approved patient. Providers who are already registered to certify patients will simply need to complete and submit an electronic patient certification to the Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Providers who have not yet signed up with the program can do so by following these instructions. Once your recommendation is submitted, you’ll receive an email with instructions for the online patient application and the PIN number you’ll need to get started. After you’ve completed your online application, you’ll receive an email notifying you once you’ve been approved (approval can take up to a couple weeks).

Do I have to be 18 in order to obtain an evaluation?

No, but you need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

How can I get access to medical marijuana?

The entire process has two steps. First, you make a risk free appointment to be evaluated by one of our physicians. If you have a qualifying medical condition, you will be certified the same day. Next, you will apply for a medical marijuana card and pay $75 to the state. Once approved by the state, you’ll be able to fill the physician’s order at any of over 200 dispensaries in Florida.

Will my insurance cover this?

Unfortunately, medical insurance, in the state of Florida, does not cover any kind of medical marijuana treatments as of right now, but we do offer a payment plan to assist our patients with the consultation fees.

Does my card/recommendation expire?

Per Florida State Law you must see a physician every 210 days (7 months) to renew your recommendation. Your physical card is good for one calendar year. Please note you will have to log in to the medical marijuana use registry to renew this. They will email you 45 days prior to expiration so please be sure to check your spam folder or add them as a contact so that you receive the notification. Their website is https://mmuregistry.flhealth.gov/

Do you recommend patients for smoking of medical cannabis?

We believe in the incredible therapeutic value of whole plant medicine. We are comfortable recommending smokable cannabis for new, transfer, and already established patients.
