During your appointment, your doctor will go over your medical records, intake forms, and will be happy to answer any questions relating to your condition and medical marijuana. You will find out during your appointment whether or not you are approved for a recommendation. If you are approved, your physician will enter you into the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry and you will then be able to apply for your Registry ID Card through the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU). Along with your application you will need to submit a $75 state-required fee. For questions or concerns regarding the application process, you may contact the OMMU directly at (800) 808.9580 or [email protected]. DocMJ staff is unable to provide any information or updates on applications.
Get Approval Email & Visit a Dispensary
Within 7-21 business days of submitting your application and payment to the Office of Medical Marijuana Use, you will receive an approval email letting you know that your application has been approved. The approval email will contain a temporary Registry ID Card that can be used to purchase medical marijuana products from any Florida MMTC (Medical Marijuana Treatment Center) until your physical card arrives in the mail. Should there be any issues with your application, the OMMU will notify you at the email address used to complete your application.
