Get Approved for Medical Marijuana in Pensacola
The process of getting approved for a medical marijuana recommendation in Florida may seem challenging but at DocMJ, our group of certified cannabis physicians, Medical Assistants, and Patient Care Coordinators are here to guide you every step of the way.
Step 1: Complete Eligibility Survey
The first step to getting your Florida medical marijuana card is completing our easy, online eligibility survey. The survey takes just 5 minutes or less to complete, and will let you know instantly if you pre-qualify for a recommendation.
Step 2: Schedule Appointment
After completing the survey, the next step is scheduling your appointment at our Pensacola office. Our office is located at:
3119 N Davis Hwy
Pensacola, FL 32503
You can schedule your appointment online at DocMJ.com or over the phone with a DocMJ Patient Care Coordinator at (888) 908.0143. We also have a Live Chat option on our website for quick answers to your questions and can be reached via email at email@example.com. Please note that payment is due at the time of booking. More information on our affordable, all-inclusive pricing options can be found on our website. Due to federal laws we are unable to accept any form of insurance at this time.
After your appointment is scheduled our office will email you confirmation of your appointment date and time, and a set of electronic intake forms. It is crucial that these forms are filled out completely at least 24 hours before your appointment, otherwise your exam may be cancelled and a fee charged to your account. We do require that you provide a copy of your most recent medical records. You may upload your records to your intake forms or bring them with you to your appointment. If you do not have access to your medical records please let our office know so that we can request them for you. You will also need to provide our office with a copy of your Florida drivers license or state ID Card. If you are a temporary Florida resident or snowbird, check out our blog Here’s How Snowbirds & Temporary Residents Qualify for Florida Medical Marijuana to learn how you can still qualify for a Florida medical marijuana card.
During your appointment the physician will review your medical records and intake forms to determine if you qualify for a recommendation. If you are approved you will be entered into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry. Once added, you will receive an email with step-by-step instructions on how to complete your application and pay the $75 state-required fee for your Registry ID Card. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the application process, please contact the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use directly at (800) 808.9580 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our office is not able to provide patients with any updates regarding applications. Application approval time can take anywhere from 7-21 business days.
Step 4: Visit Dispensary
The OMMU will notify you via email when your application is approved. This email will contain a temporary Registry ID Card that can be used at any Florida medical marijuana dispensary until your physical card arrives in the mail. If it has been more than 21 days and you have not received your approval email, make sure you check your spam folder. If you are still unable to locate your approval email, please contact the OMMU for further assistance.
