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.

Click Here to take our Eligibility Survey and schedule your appointment.

Am I guaranteed to receive a medical marijuana recommendation?

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.

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.
