You have just found us! We serve the State of Florida, including Tampa, Miami, Fort Myers, St. Petersburg, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, and Sarasota. With Emerald Medical Group, applying for a Florida Medical Marijuana Card is simple, fast, and affordable.

You can qualify for an Medical Marijuana Card if you are suffering from several medical conditions, including:

  • Cancer
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Chronic Pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Glaucoma
  • Seizures
  • Crohn’s disease

NOTE: You may still qualify to apply for the Florida Medical Marijuana Card Program even if your condition is not listed, but is believed to benefit from medical cannabis use.

Remember, certification is issued upon the doctor’s recommendation. It is based on medical expertise. Schedule your appointment with us today.

With your medical cannabis certification / designation, you will not be prosecuted at the state-level for possession and use of medical marijuana in accordance with state laws. By being a medical marijuana cardholder, you can buy cannabis products from state-licensed dispensaries.

Once certified for the program and having your cannabis user card, you’ll be able to buy cannabis products from any licensed dispensary in Florida.

No. Marijuana is still federally illegal, so no doctor can prescribe medical cannabis. No one could also fill a marijuana prescription from a local pharmacy because it does not dispense or sell medical marijuana or cannabis products.

You will receive a recommendation to use medical cannabis by a licensed Florida Marijuana Doctor and then buy your supply at a licensed dispensary.
