Medical Marijuana
There are different species and hybrids of the marijuana plant. With strict guidelines, the State of Florida highly regulates how their crops are grown for medical treatment. For instance, some of the plants have much less THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in them than others. THC is the mind-altering, euphoric component of marijuana that gives the “high” feeling, typically associated with marijuana. However, new laws were put in place that allows recommendations of elevated levels of THC for certain patients with aggressive disorders.

The natural marijuana plant contains both CBD and THC. CBD or cannabinoids can treat many different forms of diseases and disorders with low THC. Our brain and nerve cells have cannabinoid receptors, so our bodies naturally react to CBD (cannabinoids) and TCH (tetrahydrocannabinol) through merging directly with our cells. Our natural endocannabinoid system works synergistically with CBD and TCH, creating a multitude of beneficial reactions in the body.

The Process

Qualifying Medical Conditions
Currently, there are 12 medical conditions explicitly defined in the Florida medical marijuana initiative. However, the Florida marijuana law also states that any medical condition in which the medical marijuana doctor believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient may be used as criteria when certifying a patient for the Florida medical marijuana program. The medical conditions specifically defined in Florida’s medical marijuana law are:
• Cancer
• Epilepsy
• Glaucoma
• Seizures
• Crohn’s disease
• Chronic muscle spasms
• Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
• Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
• Parkinson’s disease
• Multiple sclerosis
• Any other medical condition that
the doctor approves

How MM is Regulated and Dispensed
There are highly-regulated medical marijuana dispensaries, which are the only place you can purchase marijuana legally. Marijuana is still listed as a Schedule I narcotic by the US federal government and therefore cannot be sold in pharmacies since pharmacies are regulated by the federal government’s DEA. Before a patient can legally purchase medical marijuana in Florida, the specialized marijuana physician will enter a recommended dosage amount into the registry.
