The Weed Blog likes to support emerging cannabis markets and make sure that patients/consumers have access to cannabis. We hope this news release is helpful to those of you in Florida seeking safe access to cannabis!
CannaMD, one of Florida’s fastest growing medical marijuana
clinics, has tripled in size in less than six months. Adding to its Orlando, Tampa, and Mount
Dora locations, CannaMD will open new medical offices in Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach,

Before purchasing marijuana from a medical marijuana treatment center (MMTC) – or
dispensary – patients must first qualify for a medical marijuana certification; CannaMD provides
qualified patients with the state-required recommendation to complete this process.
Focused on evidence-based application of medicinal cannabis research, CannaMD offers a
streamlined pre-qualification process, letting patients spend more time with licensed physicians.
“It’s about making the process as easy as possible,” CannaMD co-founder Ryan Scotson

before ever scheduling an appointment. After a free phone call with a patient liaison – supervised
by a registered nurse – qualified applicants submit all required paperwork online, leaving

with leaders in the medical cannabis field.”

physician, it was easy to become an advocate.”
Florida currently recognizes the following conditions for medical marijuana treatment: ALS,
cancer, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease,
