Medical cannabis has been around for thousands of years. It works as an anti-inflammatory and has analgesic effects. These properties benefit the treatment of muscle spasms, HIV/AIDS, and cancer. MMJ also has a positive impact on seizures and several other medical conditions. It is also quite useful in giving relief in moderate to severe pain. Cannabis is not a substitute for opioids. Many effectively see it as a lesser of two evils in the management of pain and terminal conditions. Medical cannabis management of some patients may offset America’s opioid crisis.
Florida’s Compassionate Care Act
The Compassionate Care Act became law in 2014. This Act creates the Office of Medical Marijuana Use in the Florida Department of Health. Certified med card physicians now certify and prescribe medical marijuana to qualified, compassionate use patients. Amendment 2, an addendum to the Act, passed in 2016. The expanded list of medical marijuana qualifying conditions now includes debilitating conditions. Doctors can also order weed for conditions of the same kind or class as the original list. This latitude gives even more patients access to this safe, non-opioid treatment. KindHealth is the premiere Miami medical marijuana evaluation clinic for your cannabis card.

Note on the Same Kind or Class Approval
Medical marijuana approval in the United States comes with certain caveats. A big one is the restriction of its use to treating a limited number of specified conditions. The conditions treated vary from state to state in the 31 states approving it. One example is anxiety. While most states have passed medical marijuana for anxiety, Florida does not. Here is where your physician may use the 'same kind or class' approval for severe anxiety. Your anxiety disorder may bridge another qualifying condition in the same class as or comparable condition. Especially if your physician feels cannabis may help.
The Florida Office of Medical Marijuana Use Registry
The Florida Department of Health restricts qualification to Florida residents. Patients younger than 18 years of age need a second concurring physician's determination. We document this second note in the medical record. You can reach the Florida Department of Health at (800) 808-9580. The Department accepts credit cards for the ID card application fee. Approval for your cannabis card usually takes 10 - 14 days from the time of your payment. Get your marijuana card Florida from KindHealth! Check out the KindHealth blog posts for further information.
