Last year Florida’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use implemented new rules for smoking cannabis dispensation. Prior to this update, a patient’s 2.5 oz prescription for smoking marijuana was allowed to be dispensed over a predefined period of 35 days. Meaning every 35 days the recommendations reset, regardless of how much you purchased that cycle. The new law established a rolling limit, where recommendations don’t reset based on the date for medical card holders.
Understanding the Rolling Limit System
Under the new legislation, Florida Medical Marijuana Patients now have a rolling limit within those 35 days for smoking marijuana. Essentially for every smokable flower purchase you make at a medical dispensary, that amount is deducted from your total recommendations. After 35 days from that purchase, that exact amount of smokable marijuana will be added back to the total recommendations. The medical marijuana industry term for this is that those orders “expire.”
Since the Medical Marijuana Use Registry implemented this new 35-day rolling limit to smokable marijuana, many patients have questioned how much they can get dispensed at any given time. At Canna Doctors of America, we are all about compassionate care, and want to make it easy for our patients to stay on top of their prescribed amounts. We will help assist you so you can find out when your orders expire.
