Here is a rundown of what type of medical marijuana products are available.
Vapes (Concentrates, oils)
A vape cartridge is made up of a mouthpiece, a chamber (where the THC concentrate goes), a heating element, and a battery.
Vaping cannabis concentrates is a popular delivery method that offers
- Ease of Use
- Increased Potency – because it’s a concentrate, there is a high level of THC in vapes.
- Less Harmful to Lungs
While using refilling vape cartridges is more economical, refillable cartridges are not recommended – using them may quickly increase your tolerance.

Topicals are ideal for relieving pain. THC, and CBD, binds to the CB2 receptors on the skin’s surface where an almost immediate reaction is stimulated, and because the THC does not reach your bloodstream, the psychoactive effect (that “high” feeling) is not as strong.

Daily Dose Amount: 150mg THC

Flower – Smokable Marijuana
Under Florida law, patients (and caregivers) are eligible to purchase a maximum of 2.5 ounces of smokable flower in a 35-day period. Previously, that 35-day period was pre-defined. But with this update (from April 2022), the registry started using a rolling period based on purchases.
Think of this rolling limit for smokable cannabis like other medications that are filled at a pharmacy. If you have a prescription for a 35-day supply of medicine, the pharmacist will fill that order, and you’ll be unable to refill that prescription for 35 days. The rolling limit for smokable cannabis is similar and made for similar reasons, to try to prevent misuse.
