How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Florida

Book An Appointment

Schedule your appointment with DocMJ on a day and time that is convenient for you. This is a no-risk appointment, we provide a 100% money-back guarantee if you do not qualify.

Meet With a Doctor

The State of Florida requires that all patients visit a doctor in person to complete the health evaluation. We have thirty offices located across Florida. A friendly DocMJ doctor will consult with you and talk about your symptoms, medications, and wellness goals. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how mmj can improve your life.

Get Approved

When approved, you will receive a recommendation for mmj. The physician will upload the recommendation to the Florida Department of Health, OMMU. Recommendations are entered into the registry on the same day. In some cases, patients may be able to purchase mmj the same day following their appointment. Your medical card will arrive by mail approximately 10-15 days after you have been certified by the doctor and apply to the State.
