Obtain your card through the help of Dr. Wong, who will not only walk you through the process, but also provide you with the guidance needed in navigating through all of the amazing marijuana products out there. Here are the 3 steps you need to take to get your hands on a card today.

  1. Book An Appointment        

First, you need to find a certified medical marijuana practitioner. Since there are presently roughly 2,300 doctors licensed to prescribe THC in Florida, this shouldn’t be a problem. Although there are a lot of qualified physicians, it is important to choose the right doctor for you, one that has extensive experience in your condition. Research their specialities, read their reviews and check out where they are located – is this convenient for you? Do they offer virtual tele-health appointments, or in person only? All of this is helpful information for you to have when making your selection.

2. Gather Medical Records & Visit Your Clinic

         Request or gather your medical records, reports, prescriptions that are proof of your diagnosis consistent with the need for medical marijuana. Cancer, seizures, and post-traumatic stress disorder are all examples of qualifying medical conditions. Once at the appointment, your medical history and treatment choices, including dosage, will be discussed with your doctor. This is one of the most critical aspects in the licensing process because of the information that has to be shared. You should feel comfortable discussing your medical history and treatment plan with your doctor. Your doctor will then write your recommendation, register your name and information into the Florida Marijuana Use Registry, and give you your patient ID number, which you’ll use to apply for the ID card you need.

3. Complete Application for Medical Marijuana Card        

Once you have your doctor’s recommendation and patient ID number, the third step requires filling out the online application for your card, which is simple. It can be done online or through paperwork. There are a few requirements to fill out the application. You must be a resident of Florida, and provide a driver’s license, a state-issued ID, a passport, or another kind of picture identification, that will be required as proof of residency. It is possible to obtain a medical marijuana card if you live in another state. The Florida Department of Health issues medicinal marijuana cards to non-residents on a case-by-case basis. Once the application is filled out your card will be issued and mailed to you. From there you can purchase medical marijuana from any certified medical marijuana treatment center in the state of Florida. Dr. Wong has her list of favorites, and will also recommend the kind of cannabis you should be using, at the right dosage.
