How We Started

DocMJ was started in August 2016 as a small group of physicians saw the need for affordable, direct patient access to medical cannabis recommendations under the Amendment 2 guidelines. Check out our Pricing page for our current options.

We’re big believers in the virtues we live and work by — empathy, compassion, and kindness. We’re here to support patients in getting the help they deserve as quickly as possible. We strive to accomplish that in the most effective way possible.

DocMJ Values

Our Mission

We aim to bring affordable medical marijuana recommendations to qualified patients across the state of Florida. We work tirelessly to be the most convenient, streamlined, and cost-effective solution for Floridians, and our mission is to provide the highest quality of care in the process.

Our Vision

Our vision is one of freedom for patients that have felt so limited by the choices in their medical treatment. We see Florida as a state that can dramatically impact the national conversation about medical cannabis recommendations. Most importantly, we see an innovative Florida, one where patients have both the right and the means to obtain the care and treatment that they need. We’re proud to have a significant network of patients across the state that believe in this cause and will soon be able to access much-needed care.

Our Promise

Our promise is a safe, private experience with physicians that listen to your concerns, understand your questions, and provide clear, honest answers. We take an active role in ensuring that we follow all protocol set forth by the Department of Health, and provide you with the service we promise and nothing less.
