CBD Legal States CBD Medical Uses Policy

Medical Cannabis Policy State by State: Florida

What is the legal status of cannabis in Florida?

Voters in The Sunshine State passed Amendment 2 on November 8, 2016, setting up the structure of a medical Marijuana dispensary system and legal protections for patients suffering from the delineated conditions below.  It is still in the implementation phase, and more information will be posted as it manifests.  Currently, any and all use of CBD-dominant products is permitted, with broader legalization of strains high in other cannabinoids in the works.  An iteration of SB08 was passed in early July of 2017, that limits use to concentrated liquids or edibles.  There are several groups suing the state to overturn this particular clause.

Currently only terminal patients can use Marijuana with THC content over 0.3%. No limit has yet been set on maximum possession limits. CBD oil derived from Industrial Hemp, species Cannabis Ruderalis, is 100% legal in all 50 states, as this plant never has more than trace amounts of THC, but is generally rich in CBD and other cannabinoids.

  • cancer,
  • Crohn’s disease,
  • epilepsy,

  • HIV/AIDS,
