Frequently Asked Questions

Will cannabis give me the psychological head rush also known as the “high”?

The chemical compound that give you a "high" is called THC. The strength can be controlled with your dosage, depending on the condition and the physician’s recommendation and what you are comfortable with. THC is very beneficial to boost other chemical properties in the plant but, it can also be given in a very low dosage, that will not affect you psychologically.

Can I smoke in Florida?

According to the Florida Department of Health: “Possession, use, or administration of marijuana in a form for smoking is not allowed except for flower in a sealed, tamper-proof receptacle for vaping.”

Will my insurance cover this?

Unfortunately, medical insurance, in the state of Florida, does not cover any kind of medical marijuana treatments as of right now, but we do offer a payment plan to assist our patients with the consultation fees.

Does Marijuana Doctor distribute THC products?

No, Marijuana Doctor is a medical office and we specialize in medical marijuana evaluations, as well as, registering patients with the Florida State Medical Marijuana Use Registry, within the Department of Health, so they may obtain their cannabis card in Florida.

Why is it so expensive compared to California?

Marijuana laws, and the requirements on the recommending physicians, vary by state. In Florida, the process to obtain your Cannabis card, has not been streamlined to run as efficiently as it could run. This leads to substantially more paperwork submissions and longer processing times. Apart from this, doctors need to submit for medicine refills every 70 days. Florida state law also requires patients to be re-evaluated every 7 months (210 days). This means more work for doctors because of the extra time spent on every patient.

Does my condition qualify?

You can find a list of the qualifying conditions on the top of our home page. It is up to the doctor to approve you, so if you have seen a physician in the past for your condition, it helps to have your medical records for the same-day doctor’s approval. We have a medical release form you can fill out and sign, we can send it to your doctor’s offices to pull your records, if needed.

Is it good for senior citizens?

Cannabis is a natural anti-inflammatory which could potentially replace other harmful medications commonly prescribed for many of these age-related conditions.
