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

I'm always super satisfied with the service, my product, and the persistent consistency that this dispo has been providing, where others had been lacking. They're always friendly, transparent about pricing, keeping me updated on deals, and they almost always run sales, which means I can save money on quality bud.
