First home delivery of medical marijuana made in Florida
Published on Jul 23, 2016
Florida lawmakers gave approval for a limited medical marijuana program back in 2014, but experienced many delays throughout 2015. Finally, this weekend in 2016 held the first home delivery of medical marijuana in Florida to a patient with dystonia, a muscle spasm and seizure condition. Trulieve was happy to deliver one of the many low THC, high CBD products they have in stock, and they expect to have high THC cannabis soon for patients with terminal conditions. The store located in Tallahassee will be opening it's doors for the first time in a few days. Patients with cancer, epilepsy, chronic seizures, and chronic muscle spasms can get medical marijuana relief through their doctor, but at the moment only 15 doctors are in the state's registry.
Patients suffering from cancer, epilepsy, chronic seizures and chronic muscle spasms can order medical marijuana by contacting their physician, as long as both are listed in a state registry. Department of Health spokeswoman Mara Gambineri said only 15 doctors are currently in the state's registry.
Trulieve will have medical marijuana initially available in a concentrated oil, tinctures, gel capsules and vape cartridges. By law, the marijuana must be low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which produces the euphoric state for users, but is high in cannabidiol (CBD) which has been effective in preventing seizures.
