Benefits of Cannabis:
Nightmares: Chronic use can screw up your sleep patterns. But, for those suffering from PTSD, it appears that nabilone, a synthetic form of THC, will reduce the related nightmares. In one study, published in the CNS Neuroscience & Therapeutics Journal, “The majority of patients (72%) receiving nabilone experienced either cessation of nightmares or a significant reduction in nightmare intensity. Subjective improvement in sleep time, the quality of sleep, and the reduction of daytime flashbacks and nightsweats were also noted by some patients.”
Parkinson’s Disease: Patients with Parkinson’s Disease suffer constantly from spasms and tremors, symptoms that are obvious to all. But, patients also suffer chronic pain and sleeping difficulties. MedPage refers to research headed by Dr. Ruth Djaldetti at Tel Aviv University where “Overall, patients' scores on the standard Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) averaged 33 before they smoked cannabis in the laboratory and averaged 24 after 30 minutes.” She also noted, “We saw a dramatic reduction in pain in our patients and in their ability to sleep. When their pain was reduced, they slept better."

 

The general process of applying for and obtaining medical cannabis is pretty straight forward. If you are a valid resident with verification of residency you may qoulify to get the medical marijuana card. Please following below:

Step 1) Get your medical records and make an appointment with a doctor

The first step in getting a Florida medical marijuana card is to obtain your medical records and receive a signed physician’s statement from a doctor. The Florida doctor must be registered in the state’s Medical Marijuana Use Registry. (Check here for an updated list of Florida medical marijuana doctors).

Also please note that in order to get a medical cannabis card in Florida, you MUST be a resident of the state. You will need to provide proof of residency, for example a Florida I.D, passport, or another form of photo identification.
Step 2) Go to your MMJ Doctor Consultation

Once you have found a qualified physician in the state, sent your complete medical history to their office, and made an appointment for an MMJ consultation, the physician will then enter your name and information into the Florida Marijuana Use Registry (aka the Compassionate Care Registry), which is run by the Department of Health. You will not be able to apply for your FL MMJ card until you are officially in the Registry.
