The OMMU registry has very important information that patient sometimes don’t know they have access. Find out when your last order and your 7-month recommendation expires.
Your MMJ card was given to you by The Florida Department of Health Office of Medical Marijuana Use (OMMU) and is valid for 1 year from the date of initial approval.

The state recommends you begin the renewal process 45 days prior to your current card’s expiration date. While you can fill out another Patient/Caregiver ID Card Application (be sure you check the RENEWAL box at the top and follow directions on the form), the easiest way to renew your card is online.

Medical Marijuana has been available as a safe treatment in Florida since Amendment 2 pass in October of 2016. Since the more than 300,000 patients have benefited from it. To get a card you need to have a qualifying condition like cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, PTSD, ALS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or “other debilitating medical conditions of the same kind or class”.
You need to be seen by a certified Medical Cannabis doctor who will recommend the use of it and register you in the Medical Marijuana Registry. To find a local doctor you can go to Floridahealth.gov Medical Marijuana Registry or call the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use at 850-245-4657.
After been registered by their MMJ doctor, patients have to register themselves with the Florida DOH, pay a $75 fee for the card and wait 3-4 weeks to get a temporary card.
Patients can receive a 70-day supply at a time x 3 equaling the 210 day certification time allowed. After that, they have to be seen again in order to get a new recommendation.
Prices typically range from $200-$300 for the initial evaluation. We come in around the same price but we offer to comfort and confidentiality of being evaluated in your home. We also don’t charge for follow-ups or per 70-day prescription like other MMJ office do. We strive in keeping it transparent for the patient.
After receiving their temporary card patients can go to any of the approved dispensaries statewide and get their medication. Patients can expect to spend around $100-$200 for their medication per month but this number really depends on the amount of milligrams the patient uses and how many times per day.
