Compassionate Marijuana Doctors Serving Jacksonville Florida

DocMJ Cares for Our Patients

Getting Started


It has never been easier for Jacksonville residents to get a medical marijuana card, especially when dealing with extremely knowledgeable cannabis doctors such as those at DocMJ. Receiving your medical cannabis card through DocMJ will give you the ability to purchase through any local or statewide dispensary.

How to Get Medical Marijuana in Jacksonville?


While the process is simple, it's important to be aware that in order to qualify for medical cannabis, you must first consult with a licensed and certified marijuana doctor to determine your eligibility for medical marijuana.

Set Up an Appointment


The first step towards receiving your medical marijuana card is to book an appointment on our website. In order to qualify, you must have at least one of the qualifying conditions necessary to be considered and approved by one of our medical marijuana doctors in Jacksonville. If you are under the age of 18, you will need to have a secondary follow-up visit with one of our doctors at a local medical marijuana clinic at 3117 Spring Glen Road or 9901 San Jose Blvd.

Consult With Your Doctor


At your visit, your doctor will meet with you during a 15 minute appointment where they discuss your qualifying conditions, review your medical records, your eligibility for medical marijuana, and answer any questions you may have about medical cannabis. If approved, your doctor will add you into the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry.

Receive Your Medical Marijuana Card


After application to the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry, you will apply for and receive your medical marijuana card, in many cases, you will be able to purchase medical cannabis on the same day. Once you receive your medical marijuana card, you will be able to purchase marijuana from any marijuana dispensary in the State of Florida, completely legally! Medical marijuana cards in the State of Florida are valid for 1 year. Medical marijuana recommendations from your physician are valid for a maximum of 210 days, or 7 months.

What Conditions Qualify for Medical Marijuana in Jacksonville?


Now that you know the process, the next question you likely have is: Do I qualify for medical marijuana? The following is a list of conditions which the State of Florida has approved for the use of medical cannabis, in addition, your physician may be able to qualify you if you have a similar condition to:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - A debilitating condition which can result in panic attacks, nightmares, detachment, overwhelming emotions, or in some cases, self-destructive behavior.

  • Parkinson's Disease - A neurodegenerative disorder which can cause loss of control with motor or non-motor function.

  • Crohn's Disease - A condition which can result in severe IBD or Inflammatory Bowel Disease, pain and discomfort, and nausea.

  • Chronic Muscle Spasms - A condition where you experience pain and tightening of the muscles, potentially related to other issues such as MS.

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) - A progressive neurodegenerative disease, causing serious motor function issues over time.

  • Epilepsy/Seizures Disorders - A neurological disorder where sensitivities can trigger episodes within the sufferer.

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - A disease that can potentially disable the sufferer's brain or spinal cord, resulting in physical alteration and possibly lack of function.

  • Glaucoma - An ocular condition which can result in mild, severe, or permanent blindness.

  • HIV/AIDS - An immunodeficiency virus which attacks the human body immune system, weakening it and making the sufferer susceptible to severe symptoms.

  • Cancer - Various different types of cancer exist, with multiple ways that it can affect someone. Each type of cancer needs consideration when analyzing for medical marijuana card qualification.

  • Chronic Non-Malignant Pain - Multiple different types of chronic non-malignant pain can exist, so it's important to discuss with your marijuana doctor about what you experience.


If you have been diagnosed or show symptoms of one or more of the above, you may be able to obtain a medical marijuana card through one of our physicians. Medical cannabis can ease the suffering of any of these conditions, and it's important to discuss your conditions and symptoms with your physician when having your consultation. Because every person is different, there is no one singular prescription, and our medical marijuana doctors can help guide you to the best fit for you

What Do I Do Once I Have a Florida Medical Marijuana Card?

NO. While we do offer a money back guarantee if you do not receive a recommendation, we DO NOT guarantee that you will receive a recommendation. You can only receive a recommendation if your doctor determines you have a qualifying condition as defined by Florida law, and that the benefits of using medical marijuana outweigh the risks.

This can be done through the email you received after you obtained your recommendation. To get more information, or to complete a paper application, click here.

Who is Eligible for Medical Marijuana in the State of Florida?

Speaking with our Florida medical marijuana doctors, you will discuss your particular situation and need, but there are two general requirements for any patient to be given a medical marijuana recommendation and obtain a card from the State: You must be either a permanent or temporary resident within the State of Florida to both receive and maintain your MMJ card from the state. This card is utilized at medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state, and will only work in Florida dispensaries. Cards issued in other states may not apply, nor may a card issued in Florida apply in other states. You must be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition by a certified doctor. Beyond the enumerated list below, the law allows a terminal condition diagnosed by a physician, or other debilitating conditions of like, kind, or class such as depression, anxiety, and migraines.

Will My Florida Medical Marijuana Card Work Anywhere in the State?

Florida patients who have received their Florida medical cannabis card may purchase at any state-licensed dispensary. Regardless if your card was issued by medical marijuana doctors in Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, or anywhere within the State of Florida, as a Florida resident you would qualify to purchase medical marijuana.

Can I Travel Across State Lines With Marijuana If I Have A Card?

As of now, No. Federal law prohibits carrying marijuana across state lines. It would be considered drug trafficking.

Can I Use My Florida Medical Marijuana Card in Other States?

While medical marijuana remains a Schedule I narcotic at the federal level it has been legalized for some states. Many have agreements between them to allow out-of-state medical marijuana cards. This is known as “reciprocity.” Florida does not yet offer reciprocity, that is, those with out-of-state medical marijuana cards cannot use them in Florida. However, Floridians can use a medical marijuana card in some other states with certain guidelines. Read on to learn which states allow the use of your Florida medical marijuana card. Read more here.

Are Medical Records for Medical Marijuana Private?

The Florida Department of Health branch known as the Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) has strict power over the online registry, giving access only to your marijuana doctors, law enforcement, dispensary staff, and the Florida Department of Health itself. Within your private Florida medical record, your registry entry has both your qualifying medical condition, or multiple qualifying conditions, and the recommended amount and method of medical marijuana provided by your doctor.

What Do I Need as a Caregiver?

If you are a caregiver in the State of Florida, you must also meet certain requirements to be issued a ‘caregiver card’ by the state. The patient must also have a qualified medical marijuana card issued by the state in order for the caregiver to receive theirs. You must present a Florida driver’s license or other form of identification in order to receive a caregiver card, which will notate both the caregiver and patient name. When purchasing at a dispensary anywhere in the state, caregivers must present both their caregiver card and the patient card in order to purchase cannabis.

How Often Do I Need to Renew My Medical Marijuana Recommendation?

A physician certification given to Florida patients is valid by Florida state law for up to 210 days (or seven months). In order to purchase medical cannabis you will need an active recommendation from a Florida medical marijuana doctor and an active Florida medical marijuana card.
