What are the conditions or illnesses that can qualify for a medical marijuana card?
For many people and often even very ill people, medical marijuana is the best treatment for their pain and the other symptoms associated with their medical condition. In fact, medical marijuana can be an effective alternative to synthetic painkillers. It may be that medical marijuana is the best treatment option for you.
There are lots of conditions and symptoms that can qualify for a medical marijuana card. Some of the conditions and symptoms medical marijuana can help to relieve include:
- Mood disorders
- Crohn’s disease
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Parkinson’s disease
- And others
Actually, medical marijuana may help treat many other conditions too. Medical conditions of the same kind/class as, or comparable to, the ones listed above may be treated by medical marijuana. In certain circumstances, the symptoms of a terminal condition can be treated, or chronic nonmalignant pain can be treated. Contact us at RejuvaMed for the details on this subject. We’ll help you as much as we can over the phone or invite you in for a consultation with our doctor.
How does a patient qualify for a medical marijuana card?
In Florida, you may be able to get a medical marijuana card if you:
- Are a Florida resident
- Have been diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition (please refer to the list above or contact our clinic for the other conditions medical marijuana may help treat)
- Have an in-office consultation with a certified medical marijuana physician like ours here at RejuvaMed

If a patient is younger than 18 years of age, a second doctor must agree with the prescription.
What is low-THC cannabis?
Here in Florida, low-THC cannabis is different from medical marijuana in that it contains a lower amount of the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because of this, low-THC cannabis doesn’t have the same “high” feeling properties medical marijuana has. It may be that low-THC cannabis is the best option for you over medical marijuana. Please connect with our clinic to learn more about this subject. We would be happy to help you decide whether medical marijuana, low-THC cannabis, or another treatment would be right for you, your condition, and your needs.
