How To Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Fort Myers

STEP 1

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

Schedule an appointment to see a doctor through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Provide basic medical history and book your appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. The doctor will also call you before the in person consultation which serves as a "pre-screening."

STEP 2

TALK TO A DOCTOR

Before your appointment, we will email you a form that you need to sign and bring with to the consultation. This form must be filled out in entirety and signed by a witness which can be a friend, family member, neighbor, etc. Then you will consult with a doctor for 10-15 minutes to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. The doctor will submit your information to the Florida DOH online to complete your application.

STEP 3

GET APPROVED

Once you are approved and registered with the DOH, you'll wait for your card to come in the mail in 2-3 weeks. Once the card comes, you can begin purchasing marijuana legally from any dispensary in Florida.
**Medical marijuana cards in Florida are only valid for 210 days, and must be re-certified every 70 days or your card will be made invalid. For no extra fee, a Veriheal doctor will consult with you online through our platform to make sure your card stays valid.
