Florida Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Updated: May 2

Here we are in May 2021, and marijuana dispensaries are sprouting up across Florida like weeds. Most major cities and even small towns are beginning to allow dispensary locations to open, largely due to the overwhelming number of Floridians that support medical marijuana.

Florida has ever changing cannabis views and the current legislation reflects this well.

To date marijuana dispensaries in Florida can only operate on a Vertically Intergrated System, meaning that they must grow, process, transport and sell their own cannabis products, from "seed to sale."

For example, even though cannabidiol is legal in America due to the Farm Act of 2018, the CBD oil Florida dispensaries sell, can only be given to approved MMJ patients.

Medical Marijuana supporters in Florida argue this system limits the ability of free trade. It stops anyone but the 28 licensed dispensaries and 123 dispensary locations in Florida, which produce medical marijuana products. So, whatever they produce is hopefully the best.

Patients say that the medicine they take from these dispensaries is not tested by independent organizations that have no profit to be made selling it, like they do.

Other states where marijuana is legal allow their dispensaries to operate on a Horizontally Intergrated System, where they can sub-contract seasoned cannabis growers to produce and harvest their plants.

Many argue this is a better system because its more patient focused. Since growers compete for the dispensaries business, quality goes up and price comes down.

Furthermore, since MMJ laws took affect in May 2017, Medical Marijuana Dispensaries, or Marijuana Treatment Centers, can only produce and sell certain cannabis products.

  • Post update, 4/1/2018 - Florida smoking ban lawsuit being heard in Leon County in Jan 2018 by Judge Gievers who set a bench trial date of May 2018 for the case.

  • Post update, 6/01/18 - Judge rules that smoking marijuana flower is allowed and that Florida's DOH ban is unconstitutional.

  • Post update, 3/20/2019 - Governor Ron Desantis signs SB 372: Smoking Marijuana for Medical Use. The bill reverses the appeal on smokable marijuana in Florida made by the previous administration in 2018. Now approved MMJ patients may access "whole marijuana flower" in Florida dispensaries, legally.

1. Vape Oil : Dispensaries all have their own line of vape oils to choose from. Most are 200mg through 600mg vape cartridges, in high CBD and high THC compounds. This is a popular way to ingest cannabis, since the vapors don't cause distress to the lungs and the relief is almost instant for patients in need.

2. Oral Oil Tinctures: Marijuana Oil is widely ingested orally. People find this a simple, effective way to consume exact dosages of marijuana. Dispensaries in Florida carry a few different oral oil products.

Most are available in CBD and THC blends and can be created with many different cannabis strains like, Grandaddy Purple, Diesel, or Lemon Haze, known to treat anxiety. You can typically buy 300mg and 600mg bottles in either THC, or CBD dominant strains.

3. Topical : Medical Marijuana Topical applications can be a great way to people who have never tried cannabis to ease into it. Since topical THC and CBD patches are available soon in the sunshine state, you can get relief without any side effects.

Florida dispensaries carry topical lotions and balms as well. Dosages may vary and you should consult a medical marijuana doctor before starting any MMJ treatment.

4. Nasal Sprays: Florida Medical Marijuana Dispensaries are stocked with high CBD, and THC nasal sprays. These have become a staple for anyone with seizures.

In fact many Parkinson's sufferers have used marijuana nasal sprays to stop their seizures and steady their shakes. Nasal Sprays are available at most dispensary locations, but not all of them have it yet. I will elaborate more below.

5. Flower; Most of the Florida dispensaries sell marijuana flower in the smokable form in 2019. Approved patients must have completed the "smokable flower" consent form, with their MMJ doctors, and have flower added to their current MMJ recommendation, to be able to buy it from a dispensary.

As of March 2019, there are 28 licensed Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Florida. ( Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers) They all are allowed to own and operate up to 25 satellite locations in Florida.

So far, there are a few dispensaries leading the pack, and others are more reserved in their expansion throughout the state.

Here is a detailed list of all 28 Florida dispensaries, including their currently open locations and planned locations. We will list all their current website information, phone numbers and email addressed if they exist.

Trulieve is one of the Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Florida leading the way. With 26 currently open locations, and more planned in 2019.
