I picked up this brochure at one of my doctor's office.
Medical Marijuana Treatment Clinics of FL. Their website is Medical Marijuana Treatment Clinics of Florida | Home
I personally haven't checked it out.
I do use CBD lotion to help back pain.
Here's another link that might be helpful:

I’m not trying to change the subject of this thread that Martian started but just thought I would mention this just in case you are a person thinking of getting a medical marijuana card and you have a Florida CCW permit. Having both puts you in a position whereby you could possibly lose your permit or even be prosecuted. Here is a link to an excellent article explaining the current legality of this situation.

This is the law even if you get legal "M" in Florida.
The treatment in my case is not for pain. And yes, my doctor(s) also have said they wish the Feds would make it legal, it would simplify their lives.

No smokeable products. After trying all this crap for a month it's back to advil, back patches, etc. All it really did was make her numb/wasted with the oral drops. The other stuff pretty much nothing. Back to the spinal injections.
I am truly sorry to hear your wife did not find relief in the cannabis.

I have the VA at Mulberry for health care, but when I turned 65 four years ago I joined the Villages United Health Medicare Advantage Plan. There is no premiums and now when I use to pay $75 a month to go MVP at Brownwood, it's free. I've got two sets of doctors and I still get meds from the VA in the mail and sometimes I'll get them at Walgreens through United Health.

You would get assigned to a Villages doctors at one of regional medical centers. On the southside we have Colony, Pinellas Plaza and Brownwood, I go to Brownwood and the building is just over a year old. Very up-to-date and I have a really great doctor. You can see a specialist without a referral but you'll have to pay a $40 copay.

Actually having this dual doctor system saved my life. I was getting a cat-scan once a year from the VA since I was a former smoker. In 2016 I had pneumonia and started seeing a specialist in pulmonary medicine with the Villages System. He also gave me a cat-scan but every six months at Lake Imaging.

Coincidently I had the two different cat-scans within a week of each other in 2018. When I saw my VA he said that Gainesville wanted me to come get a follow-up scan in 4 months. When I saw my civilian medicare doctor he said I want you go get a head-to-toe petscan at Lake Imaging. When it came back, he said you have lymphoma, and I went to the in-patient facility at TV Hospital and had 3 lumps removed under my left armpit. Everything has been fine since. So you see, while Medicare is taking action, the VA was a case of wait and see, who knows if I waited 4 more months and then had to go to Gainesville what would of happened.

There are many products available depending on what you are looking to cure. Indica for help sleeping, high CBD content for pain and or inflammation, stativa for anxiety (for some it causes anxiety), and various hybrids for different uses. You need to become educated on what is best for your particular need. Buying off the street is not the answer, that is stuff that is grown for the sole purpose of getting you very high, which in my opinion is not a medical use. Good luck in your venture and I hope you find what helps what ales you.
