To become a medical marijuana patient in Florida, it’s a three-step process. First, you book an appointment with a doctor who will review your ailments and medical condition. Second, once you are evaluated and approved, you’ll receive a medical cannabis recommendation from our licensed MMJ doctor. Lastly, once you are approved for medical marijuana in Florida, you can buy medical marijuana from any Florida dispensary in your area.
1. You MUST complete the Patient Attestation Form and bring it into your appointment with the doctor.
2. You MUST re-certify your license/medical card every 70 days by seeing a doctor. We do not charge extra for these additional visits.
3. A medical marijuana card in Florida is ONLY VALID FOR 210 DAYS. You will need to renew your card entirely within that timeframe and pay for an additional consultation with a doctor.
To qualify for the medical marijuana program in Florida, you must:
1. Be 18 years of age or older (minors need two physician recommendations as well as consent from their legal guardian).
2. Have medical records showing that you have a qualifying medical condition.
3. Be recommended by a physician for marijuana use.
4. Be a resident in the state of Florida with proof of residency.
The first step to becoming a medicinal marijuana patient in Florida is to meet with a certified Florida doctor licensed from the state to certify patients for medical marijuana. This is the service Veriheal provides. Our physician will consult with you on your ailments and assist you in getting set up through the state.
If you would like to become a medical marijuana patient in the state of Florida, it is mandatory that you sign up through the state as a patient. The Florida Department of Health allows patients to sign up through the state and become patients who can purchase medical marijuana legally. The state will send you your physical, hard-copy medical marijuana card once your application is approved.
There is a $75 fee that you must pay to the state to get your card. This fee covers your actual medical marijuana card and goes directly to the state. It is separate from the $200 fee you pay Veriheal for your consultation.
You will need to have proof of residency that you are a Florida resident when you complete your state application after your appointment. Acceptable forms of proof include:

*Disclaimer – Florida requires medical records to be approved. Our doctor cannot approve you for medical marijuana treatment if you do not have records supporting that you have one of the qualifying conditions.
