A terminal condition diagnosed by a physician other than the qualified physician issuing the physician certification.
Chronic nonmalignant pain caused by a qualifying medical condition or that originates from a qualifying medical condition and persists beyond the usual course of that qualifying medical condition.

Step 2

Patients and their Caregivers will then be entered into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry by their Qualified Physician
Be sure to provide your physician with your current email address so that you receive your login credentials to the Registry. Once you’ve been entered into the Registry, you will receive two emails from the Office of Medical Marijuana Use: one containing your Username and one containing a temporary password.

Step 3

Step 4

Fill your order at one of the licensed Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers
Once your Identification Card application has been approved, you will be able to contact a licensed medical marijuana treatment center (MMTC) and fill an order placed by your qualified physician.

Patients and caregivers may only purchase medical marijuana from a state-approved medical marijuana treatment center. Medical marijuana treatment centers may deliver medical marijuana to qualified patients and caregivers. If you do not have an MMTC in your city, you can still fill your order by contacting a medical marijuana treatment center and arranging for a delivery.

For contact information of the licensed medical marijuana treatment centers, please visit our MMTC page.

Caregivers

Patients are authorized to designate a caregiver to assist them with the purchase and/or administration of medical marijuana products. If a qualified patient is younger than 18 years of age, only a caregiver may purchase or administer medical marijuana for the qualified patient. Patients who are minors may not purchase marijuana.

The patient’s qualified physician is the only person able to add a caregiver to a patient’s profile in the Medical Marijuana Use Registry.

Caregiver Certification Course

Florida law requires caregivers to successfully complete a Caregiver Certification Course every 2 years. The course is built into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry and is free of charge. Caregivers are not required to take any other course or examination to be registered as a caregiver.

The OMMU Caregiver Refresher Guide is available. This Refresher Guide is a study tool for the Caregiver Certification Course. Click the link below to view the guide.

Please note: The Refresher Guide is a study tool to help individuals prepare for the Caregiver Certification Course. Completion of the Refresher Guide does not count towards the completion of the Caregiver Certification Course training.
