What You Need to Know

You may have noticed an email from the Florida Department of Health regarding a Medical Marijuana Use Registry Update over the weekend. Fear not, we’re here to break it down for you.

First, this new regulation has updated the daily allotted dosage amounts for each route. Prior to this regulation physicians could allot up to 400 mg THC per day per route based on their patient’s needs. Now, each route has a different max dosage per day. In addition, the aggregate allotted milligrams cannot exceed 24,500 mg of THC per 70-Day recommendation. Your low-THC cannabis will not be affected by this new rule. Because of this new limit you will not receive the same amount of milligrams per route as you are used to. In fact, each route (aside from Smokable Marijuana) will contain different maximum limits:



Edibles
Daily dose: 60 mg THC | 70-day limit: 4,200 mg THC

Inhalation
Daily dose: 350 mg THC per day | 70-day limit: 24,500 mg THC

Oral
Daily dose: 200 mg THC per day | 70-day limit: 14,000 mg THC

Sublingual
Daily dose: 190 mg THC per day | 70-day limit: 13,300 mg THC

Suppository
Daily dose: 195 mg THC per day | 70-day limit: 13,650 mg THC

Topical
Daily dose: 150 mg THC per day | 70-day limit: 10,500 mg THC

Smokable Marijuana
Daily dose: 2.025 grams per day | 35-day limit: 2.5 oz

Unfortunately, you will not receive the full maximum amount per route as it exceeds the state’s limit of 24,500 mg of THC per 70-Day recommendation.



Second, they have begun to calculate limits based on a rolling basis from the date of each dispensation. This rule is the same as the one they enforced earlier this year for Smokable Marijuana. This means that what you can buy will change based on purchases you made earlier on in your 70-Day recommendation. The Office of Medical Marijuana Use has included a guide on how to understand the amount available to you per route on your personal MMUR Profile. Please note that if your purchases have exceeded the state maximum of 24.500 mg of THC in your previous recommendation, this will be taken into account when your dispensable amount is calculated and you may have to wait until you are able to make a purchase.

These new updates will begin on Monday, August 29, 2022, and will affect the dosage of patients who are receiving new recommendations from their doctor’s office. If you had an open set of recommendations before August 29,2022, you will maintain the amount of milligrams of THC per route that was allotted to you before this time for the remainder of those open orders. However, all patients are now subject to the rolling 70 day limit. Any recommendations placed by the doctor after this time are subject to the new maximum limitations.

Our Recommendations

Affordable Marijuana License wants to make sure that you are taken care of and receive the treatment you need. Please know that these allotted milligrams can be moved around to fit your treatment. If you need more milligrams in Oral or Edibles because you don’t vape we can ensure that while adhering to the 24,500 mg THC maximum you receive the max dosage for the routes you are using. Because very few patients at Affordable Marijuana License use the Suppository route it is possible to leave this route out in order to better allot your 24,500 mg THC.

Exemptions can be made on a case by case basis. It is important to first try the recommended starting dosages to see if your treatment can fit into these new limitations. A combination of Oral, Edibles, Inhalation, Topical, and Smokable can make it so you are still receiving the care you need while not having to rely on only one route of medical marijuana. Speak with your doctor at your next appointment about if an exemption is appropriate for you and your treatment.


Please know that these new rules were not implemented by your doctor’s office or the dispensaries you may shop at. This new rule and regulation is enacted by the Florida Health Department and any questions or concerns regarding this new law can be directed to:

Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU)
