What Role Will CBD Play in Florida Medical Marijuana?

February 22, 2017

florida medical marijuana, CBDThe use of CBD (cannabidiol) has been and will continue to be a predominate feature of Florida's medical marijuana program. The use of CBD has been legal in Florida since 2014. Florida Governor Rick Scott signed senate bill 1030 into law in 2014, which allowed medically qualified patients with a written doctor's recommendation to get access to CBD oil as treatment for debilitating conditions. Under this low-THC law, patients were (and still are!) able to possess cannabis oil that contains 10% or more CBD as long as it contains no more than 8/10ths of one percent of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). While this law is still in place for patients that need access to CBD under the age of 18, Amendment 2, Florida's Medical Marijuana Initiative, will continue the use of CBD for medical patients. The role of CBD is understood statewide, and this cannabinoid is appreciated for its medical benefits more so than THC for the initiative's qualifying conditions. Here's what we found out on Florida's low-THC law, and how the use of CBD will continue to be a predominate feature of Florida's medical cannabis program.
