    Medical Marijuana

    I'm looking for a doctor in FL who writes scripts for medical marijuana for spasms.

    This article has a map you can zoom into your area and hover over the colored dot for the Dr. name and address. Google is a stoners friend.

    Here's the link to the Florida Office of Medical Marijuana approved doctors: http://www.floridahealth.gov/program...pleted-cme.pdf
    I went to one for neuro pain and the doctor registered me online during the appointment asking questions related to the statute. You have to do your own research about products. Then you get a link and have to fill out your own online application and send in a payment. The website says it takes 30 days for review but Im still waiting at 45 days. To follow up with the FL office, email is quick and phone is impossible. Best Wishes

    Thanks for the info! I'm seeing a dr tomorrow. If I qualify for it they will do the application I just have to pay for the card. They said it's taking around 6 weeks.

    Application has been sent in. I was told it is taking about 6 weeks to get your temporary card. The doctor went over CBD and THC. I told him I'm needing it for my spasms and I don't want to be high. He said it will be trial and error. What works for one might not work for another. If anyone is using medical marijuana for spasms I would appreciate any input.

    A friend brought some cbd oil for me to try from Innovative. I only tried it a couple of times at night, and in my opinion, it seemed to reduce spasms. I'm not sure how this product compares to what might be prescribed. I intended to order my own ($60/bottle), but when doing so, I'm not sure it's a legal product. Anyone know?

    A friend of mine brought back some CBD oil infused candy from a legal state (10mg per) and I didn't notice anything. I use maryjane to get high, when the mood strikes me, that's about all it's worth to me. Makes my pain way worse, frankly, but does help me care less about it.

    It works great on my spasms when I eat it, but only if I haven't eaten it for a while. If I make a large batch, the first night my spasms are gone. By the 5th or 6th night there is hardly any decrease in spasms. But I am sleepy, which is great if that is what you are looking for.

    I smoked before my accident but not after, makes the pain worse, but do lessen the spasms.
