The State of Florida recently approved medical marijuana to treat certain medical conditions, including some pain-related illnesses. Dr. Darin Bush at Mobility Spine and Sports is certified by the State as a medical marijuana doctor.
In Florida, low-THC cannabis is distinct from medical cannabis in that it contains very low amounts of the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because of its low levels of THC, low-THC products do not have the euphoric properties of full-potency cannabis and typically do not result in patients experiencing the “high” commonly associated with cannabis.
To qualify as low-THC, the flowers, seeds, resin, and any other product derived from the cannabis plant must contain 0.8 percent or less of THC and more than 10 percent of cannabidiol (CBD) weight for weight.*
In Florida, medical marijuana (formerly knowns as medical cannabis) is distinct from low-THC cannabis in that it can contain significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the chemical compound that causes the “high” commonly associated with cannabis.
The term medical marijuana includes all parts of a cannabis plant, its seeds, resin extracted from any part of the plant; and every compound, manufacture, sale, derivative, mixture, or preparation of the plant or its seeds or resin.* Visit the State of Florida's OMMU website for more information.
