Cannabis Medical Treatment

Cannabis Medical Treatment is also known as Medical Marijuana Treatment.

A physician may only order medical marijuana for a patient with a qualifying condition.

Qualifying neurological conditions include:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic nonmalignant pain caused by a qualifying medical condition

Florida law defines medical marijuana as:

  • all parts of any plant of the genus Cannabis
  • whether growing or not
  • the seeds thereof
  • the resin extracted from any part of the plant
  • every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or
    preparation of the plant or its seeds or resin, including low-THC cannabis

It is dispensed from a medical marijuana treatment center for medical use by a qualified patient.

In Florida, medical marijuana is distinct from low-THC cannabis in that it can contain significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical compound that causes the high commonly associated with cannabis. Unlike low-THC cannabis, the consumption of medical marijuana can lead to potent psychoactive effects in patients.
