How to Get Certified for Medical Marijuana in Orlando, Florida

How do I get certified for medical marijuana in Orlando, Florida?

Registering to become a medical cannabis patient is easy and secure with My Florida Green in Orlando

  1. Submit our quick qualification form to check your eligibility for a Florida Medical Marijuana Card.
  2. Fill out the registration form for our Orlando location (click the 'Get Started' button)
  3. Select a date and time for an appointment with one of our qualified physicians.
  4. Complete a medical history form and upload your medical records. If you prefer, you can present these at the time of your appointment. Even if medical records aren’t available, the doctor can still consult with you about your qualifying medical conditions. When the doctor determines that you meet the eligibility requirements for medical marijuana treatment, they will submit their recommendation to the Florida Department of Health.
  5. Medical Marijuana Cards are typically approved within two weeks. You will then be sent an electronic version of the card by email. Once you have your electronic card, you will be able to purchase medicine from any Florida Medical Marijuana Dispensary. The physical card will be sent to you by post and you will receive it approximately two to three weeks later.

What other benefits are available to patients of My Florida Green?

As a registered patient, you will also be able to access our Smartphone App, which you can use to locate Medical Marijuana dispensaries locally and throughout the Sunshine State. The app can also assist in documenting the progress of your treatment and help you stay ahead of your Medical Marijuana Card’s expiration and renewal deadlines
Once certified, no follow up appointments are necessary, but My Florida Green will continue to provide whatever further support you need and will often inform you of product discounts. 

Am I eligible to register for a Medical Marijuana Card in Florida?

For treatment under the Medical Use of Marijuana Act, you must be a permanent or temporary resident of the state. To prove permanent residency, you should provide a copy of a valid Florida driver’s license or identification card.

  • Government issued identification
  • Mail from a financial institution or government agency (less than two months old)
  • Utility bill (less than two months old)
  • House deed or lease agreement

To be considered a temporary resident of Florida, you must reside in the state for at least 31 consecutive days each calendar year and maintain a temporary residence in the state.

If the patient to be treated is a minor, additional proof of eligibility will be required.
