How do I become certified to recommend cannabis medicine?
You must have an active and unrestricted Florida license as a medical doctor or osteopathic physician.
Additionally, you must take the 2-hour course and examination offered by the Florida Medical Association or Florida Osteopathic Medical Association, depending on your license type.
You must re-take this course each time you renew your license if you wish to remain a physician qualified to order medical marijuana and low-THC cannabis.
