Am I guaranteed to receive a Medical Cannabis recommendation?

No. You must be evaluated by a certified physician or provider under a physician’s supervision and diagnosed with one of the “debilitating medical conditions” as defined under the Florida Medical Marijuana Compassionate Care Act.

Will I receive a prescription from Compassionate Care of Florida if I qualify under the Florida Medical Marijuana Compassionate Care Act?

No. The state does not recognize “prescriptions” for medical cannabis. Your data will be uploaded into multiple state data bases for further action. The state will contact you directly to arrange for you to receive a Registry Identification Card that will allow you to go to an independent licensed dispensary in your area.

How long does the state processing require?

The positive response to the legalization of medical cannabis has overwhelmed the state’s resources. By the end of the summer of 2017, the wait has already passed 21 days from the time of entry into the state data bases to issuance of a Registry Identification Card.

Will I have to be reevaluated to maintain my state issued Registry Identification Card?

Yes. The state requires periodic reevaluations by certified professionals. The time intervals between medical evaluations mandated by the State of Florida may change. The Compassionate Care of Florida staff will keep you updated, in order to schedule appropriate follow-up appointments that are required to maintain your state issued Registry Identification Card.
