How To Become A Medical Cannabis Caregiver In Florida

What is a Medical Marijuana Caregiver?

A medical marijuana caregiver is someone who has the legal right to purchase and possess medical cannabis for use by a qualified medical marijuana patient. They are the legal representative for the patient. Caregivers may be the patient’s parent, legal guardian, health care surrogate, or an individual with power of attorney to make health care decisions.

How to Become a Medical Marijuana Caregiver?

The application process for becoming a Florida medical marijuana caregiver is similar to the application process for becoming a medical marijuana patient.

The 3 steps to become a medical marijuana caregiver in Florida:

  1. The patient you represent must have a qualifying condition.
  2. The patient must see a licensed physician who can recommend medical marijuana.
  3. You must apply to the Medical Marijuana Use Registry (MMUR) to become a legal medical marijuana caregiver.

Rules and Restrictions for Medical Marijuana Caregivers

There are several restrictions and conditions that medical marijuana caregivers must meet in order to qualify:

  • Cannot be a qualified physician
  • Cannot be employed by or have an economic interested in a medical marijuana treatment center or marijuana testing laboratory
  • Must be 21 years of age and a Florida resident
  • Must agree, in writing, to assist with the qualified patient’s medical use of marijuana cannabis products
  • Must complete a caregiver certification course by Florida Department of Health
  • If not closely related to the patient, must pass a background check

Absolutely a great dispensary. Team is always ready with a smile and patient to a fault with MMUR questions. This dispensary goes above and beyond in customer service and is always open to any issues you might have before or after product purchase. ...Between the rewards points you accumulate and the regular sales they have across all product lines, you will not go broke or sacrifice quality. ...Surterra should be a regular stop. And the Coral Reefer line is AMAZING!

Surterra is, by far, the best dispensary out of the 5 in my neighborhood. I need a high THC for pain relief, etc. and Surterra generally has some 30%+.  Their discounts and rewards program are the best in the area.  The budtenders and support staff are awesome.

Surterra has the best pre-rolls in my area of multiple dispensaries to choose from. They're not too tight & burn great. This is the place to get your pre-rolls folks!

The customer service and products I received are top notch. As a new patient they've taken the time to answer all my questions and ensure that I completely understand, not just make the sale and rush me out the door like other places. The daily sales and special discount offers make things very affordable...the attention I receive from the customer service reps will keep me coming back.

This is my absolute favorite dispensary. Daily deals, amazing customer service, and phenomenal products. Surterra has been coming out swinging with the recent new flower strains! They are by far the most efficient/fastest dispensary I've ever been to. 12/10, highly recommend.
