How do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana in Florida?
How do I qualify for medical marijuana in Florida? If you are a Florida resident, the list of debilitating medical marijuana conditions is shown below. The list of Florida conditions includes chronic pain, HIV-AIDs, cancer, and epilepsy. Legal cannabis may help all of these problems. Medical cannabis is legal! Patients with any of several health conditions under the Florida Medical Cannabis Act of 2016 will qualify. Our weed doctors check you for a Florida med card. After checking your proof of residency, we perform a full medical history and review all available records. Our experienced doctors check if you have a qualifying debilitating medical condition. We will design an appropriate medical mmj dosing plan for your eligible medical condition. Included on the list are of conditions that qualify you for Florida mmj relief are:
- Chronic and Severe pain
- Hepatitis C
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Crohn's disease
- Parkinson disease
- ALS (Lou Gehrig's)
- Muscular dystrophy
- Terminal illness (a poor prognosis of <less than 12-months to live)
- Other conditions as approved by KindHealth physician
What is the "Same Kind or Class Approval"
Getting medical marijuana approval in the United States may come with limits. Treatment restriction to a small number of specific conditions is one. Approved requirements vary from state to state in the 31 states with medical cannabis programs. One example of an approved condition is anxiety. While most states have adopted medical mmj for anxiety treatment, Florida has not. However, savvy doctors use the 'same kind' or 'class' approval if your anxiety disorder 'bridges' to another condition on the list. This issue would be in the 'same class' as or comparable situation. This bridge is a perfect solution, especially if your physician feels cannabis will help.

Florida Medical Card FAQs
What is a medical card?
Unlike states with recreational marijuana, the state of Florida requires a valid, state-issued medical card to use marijuana. What is more, you are required to have an active weed card to use or have medical cannabis in your possession legally. At present, if police catch you with marijuana, even if it is medical, not having a card with you particularly increases your chances of legal problems.
In beginning the process of how to get a medical card in Florida, you need to let our doctors put you into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry. Specifically, a doctor must recommend marijuana as an appropriate treatment option for you.
First, we review your medical history, wellness goals, and medical records, if you have any. Next, we focus on the status of your qualifying condition. Third, we determine your eligibility, and, based on the evaluation of your medical conditions, our licensed medical weed doctor completes your marijuana recommendation. Fourth, we order medical cannabis recommendations and enroll you in the Registry. Finally, we help you submit your application to the Office of Medical Marijuana Use. After you get your med card approval emailed to you, you are then able to purchase medical-grade marijuana.
What's the cost for a medical marijuana ID card?
FL state charges a $75 medical card application fee (they accept credit cards online). Before you submit your application and payment, you need to get a consultation. Our licensed Florida weed doctor will recommend you. KindHealth mmj doctors are proud to offer the lowest prices in Miami to Florida residents. Accordingly, we only charge $189 for our medical card evaluations. There are no hidden charges or other fees.
To put this into perspective, a medical card consultation in Miami will cost you, on average, $250. Save $65, give or take, by letting us help you get and maintain an active MMJ Florida weed card. What's more, we provide full 210-day refills to our valued patients. Florida law only allows prescription of a 70-day supply of low-THC cannabis or medical marijuana at a time.
Also, if you’re a service member, vet, or connected with the military in any way, the KindHealth cannabis doctors offer a $40 discount off the initial evaluation price. So, for military-connected patients, a KindHealth medical card recommendation is only $149.
How long does it take KindHealth to get a medical card in Florida?
Our Florida Marijuana Doctors are committed to ensuring that you receive your med card as quickly as possible. But since MMJ Florida identification cards are issued and mailed to you by the state, processing times are primarily out of our hands. We streamline your cannabis consultation visit and approval. The time it takes to get your physical medical card in the mail is up to the state of Florida.
Currently, it takes, on average, two to four weeks for patients to receive their Florida medical card from the state.
Once you get a weed recommendation and patient ID number from a KindHealth Florida weed Dr, you then have to submit a medical card application to the Florida OMMU. We’re happy to help with the processing. The state takes a $75 application processing fee, which may take up to five business days.
It takes another five days for your medical card status to be approved and displayed on the state registry. The OMMU mails your physical card to your location. Once the patient gets their approval notice, they can visit any number of dispensaries (medical marijuana treatment centers) to purchase their cannabis.

Do I Qualify for an MMJ Card?
How do I qualify for Medical Marijuana in Florida? If you have a qualifying medical condition and are able to show proof of Florida residency, call us. Our qualified expert physician works with mmj patients. Cannabis is a simple, natural alternative option. Weed is a potential life-altering treatment for your chronic medical conditions.
Marijuana has been around for thousands of years. When used for medical reasons, it works to fight inflammation. It has superb analgesic effects. MMJ properties benefit the treatment of muscle spasms, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. Weed has positive impacts on seizures and many other conditions. MMJ helps relieve moderate to severe pain. Cannabis is not a substitute for opioids. Having said this, many patients can wean their opioid doses when using both. Some see weed as the lesser of two evils for treatment of pain or end-stage conditions. Treating patients with weed may also help with America's opioid crisis.
Florida's Compassionate Care Act
The Compassionate Care Act is now Florida law. This 2014 Act created the Office of Medical Marijuana Use. It allows certified med card doctors to prescribe medical weed to qualified patients. Amendment 2, an addendum to the Act, was passed in 2016. The revision of the original list of qualifying conditions included even more disabling conditions. Doctors can also order weed for 'conditions of the same kind or class.' Having more choices of qualifying conditions gives more patients access to this safe, non-opioid treatment. KindHealth is the best Miami medical cannabis clinic to get your med card. Call us now. Schedule your appointment to come in and see if medical weed can help you.
Weed Cards for Florida Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions
The Florida Department of Health Office of Medical Marijuana approves weed for qualified patients. Florida residents need a disabling medical health condition on the list. Our licensed medical weed doctor does not need your medical records to recommend cannabis. Get your medical marijuana card in Florida for chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, a terminal condition, or any end-stage disease. As a medical marijuana patient, get relief and added legal protection from having your card.
