Great question! At our facility, we understand that Cannabis is a personalized treatment option. We know that it may be necessary to try a few products before finding the best solution for you. Unfortunately, the state regulator for Florida’s medical marijuana industry has unveiled new caps for each of the five delivery routes (Inhalation, Oral, Edibles, Sublingual, and Topical) per seventy (70) day period.
The new emergency rules found Friday on the state Office of Medical Marijuana Use website limits patients to purchasing 24,500 milligrams of THC over a 70-day period which cannot exceed a total of 350 mg daily. Sample breakdown below:
Inhalation – 200mg/day (14000mg per 70 day)
Edibles – 50mg/day (3500mg per 70 days)
Oral – 50mg/day (3500mg per 70 days)
Sublingual – 25mg/day (1750mg per 70 days)
Topical – 25mg/day (1750mg per 70 days)
Total – 350mg/day (24500mg per 70 days)
These changes will also be done on a rolling 70 day, patients who received their orders before Friday 8/29/22 should be grandfathered in on the amounts but are still subject to the rolling limits.
There are some exceptions to these limits, we will be adding more information about them shortly. Please call (904) 586-0041 or email us if you have questions.
A medical marijuana recommendation is not a prescription. There is no scientific data regarding specific dosing. Given its proven safety and the fact that we are trying to help people avoid deadly medications like opioids and benzodiazepines we are providing you with a substantially above average dose per day. Please start low and slowly increase your dose to avoid adverse reaction. if you have any type of adverse reaction please stop and come see Dr Pulido immediately.
You can schedule an appointment to come in here or give us a call at 904-586-0041 and we can assist you.
45 days before the expiration of your card, access to renewing your card opens on your account. You will complete the same process you did for your initial application on the states website https://mmuregistry.flhealth.gov/
This can get complicated but to sum it up: If you are a medical marijuana patient and try to buy a gun at a dealer, you will have to fill out a Firearms Transaction Record and question 11e on that form asks if you are currently an unlawful user of controlled substances with a warning that even state-legal medical marijuana is illegal under federal law and counts in this instance.
When this question is marked yes, the application is automatically denied. So you will be unable to purchase a gun from a dealer. The medical marijuana law itself does not mention guns at all. Guns you already own & medical cannabis in Florida are not addressed anywhere.
Getting a concealed weapons permit & medical marijuana is not addressed anywhere, however, Florida elected officials have stated on the record that you can have both and one does not affect the other. You can still purchase guns in a private sale as there is no Firearm Transaction Record form. As far as we can tell, to legally buy a new gun from a dealer a current medical marijuana patient would need to let their card expire, buy the gun, and then renew their card. Please note this is not proper legal advice and you should consult with a lawyer if you have further questions.
