CBD is a key ingredient in cannabis and it's a non-psychoactive. CBD has a wide range of medical benefits. 

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD doesn't make people feel high like CBD does, it's causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients who are using CBD rich products to treat a wide of range conditions.  Among them : chronic pain, cancer, crohn's, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, anti-biotic resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, parkinson, insomnia and more.

Academic research centers in the Unites States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other ailments. Scientist refer cBD as a "promiscuous" compound because it offers therapeutic benefits in many different ways.  Extensive pre-clinical research and other studies have shown that CBD has a strong anti-oxidant, anti inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti psychotic, anti -tumoral and neuro-protective qualities. 

CBD Benefits

CBD seems to offer natural protection against the marijuana high. Numerous studies suggest that CBD acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory impairment and paranoia.

CBD also appears to counteract the sleep-inducing effects

Both CBD and THC have been found to present no risk of lethal overdose. However, to reduce potential side effects, medical users may be better off using cannabis with higher levels of CBD.

Steps to Getting a Medical Marijuana Card in Florida

1. Marijuana Evaluation

The first step is to get evaluated by a certified medical marijuana doctor. Only certified marijuana doctors can certify a medical marijuana patient in Florida. The patient must be a Florida resident and have a valid Florida ID or driver's license. The doctor follows state of Florida guidelines which list qualifying medical conditions, and can also write a recommendation for medical conditions of similar kind or class as those listed. Insurance, medicare, and medicaid do not cover medical marijuana evaluations, or medical marijuana.

2. Medical Marijuana Patient Registry

After the doctor certifies a medical marijuana patient, basic information is entered into the state of Florida Department of Health Compassionate Use Registry. Information that can identify the patient is entered such as patient name and address. Medical history or diagnosis information is not shared with the registry. A patient number is issued to each patient. Licensed marijuana growers, dispensaries, and law enforcement use the registry to verify valid patients. In the event that you are stopped by law enforcement while carrying marijuana in Florida all you need to do is provide the officer with your registry number to avoid being arrested for carrying medical marijuana.

3. Florida Cannabis Card Issued

After the doctor sees the patient, and has entered the patient into the registry the patient is ready to submit the Department of Health form. The Florida Department of Health issues the medical marijuana card directly to the patient. The ONLY valid medical marijuana card in Florida is issued by the Department of Health. If you received a card from another source it is a marketing gimmick and not valid. Cards issued by other sources will not be honored by licensed growers or dispensary organizations.

4. Purchase Medical Marijuana from Growers and Dispensing Organizations

The patient can purchase the entire 70 day order at once with 3 refills, or break up the order into smaller orders. Some growers deliver statewide directly to your home. Dispensaries are being opened statewide. Insurance does not cover medical marijuana. Concentrated extracts, oral spray tincture, and ground flowers are available. High CBD, high THC, or a combination of both are available. Sativa, indica, and hybrid is available.
