The Cost of Medical Marijuana in Florida

One of the most common questions we receive is how much does medical marijuana cost in Florida?

There isn’t a definitive answer that encompasses all of the different types of medical marijuana products in the Sunshine State. From budget ounces to boutique-grade grams, we’ll dive into the nitty-gritty aspects of medical marijuana pricing.

Read along as we take an in-depth look at the cost of medical marijuana in Florida. Once you understand the varying prices available in Florida, you can fine-tune your budget to meet your medical marijuana needs.

The Cost of Medical Marijuana Flower

The most popular type of product in Florida is none other than cannabis flowers.

However, the price of medical marijuana flower is subject to the grade and weight. As you can imagine, top-shelf flowers exceed the cost of budget medical weed. Remember, you will have to decide if you seek quality or quantity.

As we browse a handful of popular medical marijuana dispensaries in Florida, we can glimpse into the average pricing for medical marijuana flowers.

Top-Shelf Medical Marijuana Flowers

According to three popular medical marijuana dispensaries, such as Trulieve, Surterra, and Fluent, the average price per gram of high-end weed is roughly $11 per gram. Furthermore, the average cost per eighth is $45.

Overall, the price of medical marijuana flowers is slightly above the averages found on the West Coast.

Medium-Grade Medical Marijuana Flowers

Medium-grade flowers are for you if you don’t want to break the bank on effective medicine.

Overall, medium-grade medical marijuana flowers contain high levels of THC and produce a pungent aroma. However, medium-grade flowers lack the mind-blowing bag appeal of their top-shelf counterparts.

The average cost per gram of medium-grade medical marijuana flowers is $9. Furthermore, the price per eighth is pegged at $33. At these prices, medical marijuana becomes affordable and attractive to those on a budget.

Budget Medical Marijuana Flowers

Last but not least is budget-oriented medical marijuana flowers.

This category is all about quantity and for those who seek the best-bang-for-their-buck. However, budget-grade medical marijuana flowers are not meant to impress.

Many medical marijuana dispensaries in Florida offer budget ounce deals at attractive prices. However, the flowers are typically under-sized, which are known as popcorn nugs. Furthermore, budget medical marijuana flowers are not fresh and contain far fewer trichomes than medium or top-shelf cannabis flowers.

The average price per gram of budget-grade medical marijuana flowers is $6. Typically, you can find deals such as $50 for seven grams or half an ounce for $79. If you aren’t picky, each of these deals are a steal.  Keep in mind that the popularity is quite high on these, so they do note stay on shelves long and usually have a limit on quantity purchased.

The Cost of Medical Marijuana Concentrates

The cost of medical marijuana concentrates is far higher than cannabis flowers because of the work involved to produce them.

Let’s look at the price of popular medical marijuana concentrates, such as vape cartridges and extracts.

The Price of Medical Marijuana Extracts

The world of medical marijuana extracts is vast. From shatter to rosin and everything in between, your head will spin with an overwhelming selection.

Popular dispensaries, such as Trulieve, sell various extracts at $65 per 0.5g to $75 per 1g. Overall, the final price is dependent on the quality of the cannabis extract. If you seek niche products, such as rosin, you may pay more than those looking for shatter.

Furthermore, popular products, such as THC distillate or crumble, are found at $60 per 1g. Remember, concentrates contain ultra-high amounts of THC. In other words, medical marijuana extracts should hold you over longer.

Lastly, if you’re budget-minded, you can obtain kief for lower prices, such as .5-grams for $20. Overall, it’s up to your personal preference and budget to determine which medical marijuana extract is best for you.

The Price of Medical Marijuana Vape Products

Those of you who don’t want to risk your lungs’ health — medical marijuana vape cartridges are a welcome option.

Typically, medical marijuana dispensaries in Florida price vape cartridges at $45-55 per .5g. If you’d rather have access to a full gram, you can expect to pay $75-95.

Once again, the final price is heavily reliant on the quantity of the product. However, you should always seek high-quality vape products to protect the health of your lungs.

The Cost of Medical Marijuana Edibles

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Florida recently received the green light to sell cannabis-infused edibles.

Now, you can choose between palate-pleasing edibles as your go-to medicine. From chocolate bars to delicious fruit-inspired gels, the edible scene is booming with innovative products.

Overall, you can expect to pay $25 per edible package. Laws in Florida stipulate that each cannabis edible package may contain up to 100mg of THC.

The beauty of cannabis-infused edibles is the ease-of-dosing. By breaking the edible into equal parts, you can budget your doses accordingly.

However, you must understand that edibles in Florida are a recent development, and not all dispensaries are fully stocked.

The Best Medical Marijuana Prices in Florida

Before you can find the best medical marijuana deals in Florida, you’ll need to grab your medical marijuana license first.

Why Giving Your “FurBaby” CBD Can Be Beneficial

CBD Hemp Oil

While many are familiar with the incredible benefits of CBD in the human body, only a few are aware that similar effects are attainable for their furry friends. While CBD is part of Cannabis Sativa, rest assured, your pet will not get high from ingesting it, however, they can benefit from it greatly, as cats, dogs, and other pets also have an endocannabinoid system, and since many conditions that exist in humans are also present in animals, they will reap the same benefits from incorporating CBD into their lifestyle as humans would.

How CBD can help your pet depends on what conditions your pet suffers from, below is a list of benefits that CBD provides to pets and their owners. If any of those conditions apply to you or your loyal companion, you might want to take a closer look at CBD products for pets.

CBD Is an Anticonvulsant 
CBD has become a widely known treatment for seizures, that applies to animals as well. Numerous studies have proven that CBD is an effective treatment in controlling tremors, tics, seizures, and spasms. CBD is also able to help manage seizures caused by epilepsy and spasticity due to multiple sclerosis. CBD is a powerful anticonvulsant that can help restore order to the overreactive neurons and allow them to fire at a normal rate, reducing the number of convulsions.

CBD Reduces Stress and Anxiety
While you may be familiar with an emotional support animal for those that suffer from anxiety, pets can too suffer from the same conditions. Animals, similarly to humans, suffer from stress, anxiety, and phobias. CBD has become an alternative to the commonly used anxiety medication due to its similar effects on the body and mind. CBD can help temporarily boost serotonin levels in the brain and decrease stress, making it an effective treatment for anxiety in both pets and humans.

CBD Is Anti-Inflammatory and a Painkiller 
CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that reduces pain symptoms caused by conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, migraines, and even cancer. By reducing the inflammation in the body, not only does CBD help reduce pain, but it also helps to manage the condition itself. CBD has also been proven to be a painkiller by its ability to stop the absorption of anandamide. With the increased levels of anandamide in the body, the pain signals to the brain are significantly reduced, therefore allowing for temporary ease in the amount of pain your pet is feeling.

CBD helps ease vomiting and nausea 
Nausea and vomiting are extremely common symptoms in both humans and pets. They can be a result of various conditions or a side effect of certain medications. Although common, they are no less bothersome and can cause a variety of other symptoms such as dehydration, fatigue, etc. Studies show that CBD is a very effective antiemetic and helps to control nausea as well as vomiting, all while stimulating the appetite. While being a powerful treatment for nausea, it lacks the common side effects of traditional medications, making it a safe choice for your pet.

Whether your pet suffers from any chronic conditions or you simply want to better the quality of their life, CBD is a safe for pets supplement that you can easily incorporate into their routines to decrease stress, and increase overall well-being.

How to Start Vaping

If you haven’t tried vaping yet but are considering giving it a try this article is for you! Vaping is easy and efficient but you need to choose the right oil and dispenser. So, let’s get stuck in and find out on how to start vaping.

What type of vaporizer?

Firstly, you need to choose a vaporizer. There are different types of vaporizer on the market. Each has their pros and cons, but the easiest and most affordable option when you are starting out is a vape pen.

  • Disposable Pen – These pens are low cost and come prefilled. Each pen is disposable, and you cannot refill it can once you reach the set number of puffs. The range of flavours and ingredients change depending on the manufacturer.
  • Reusable Pen – These use prefilled cartridges that you load into the pen. The cartridges can differ in shape so pay attention to ensure your pen and cartridge are compatible. Again, flavors and ingredient vary by manufacturer.
  • JUUL – JUUL is a brand specific reusable pen that special vape pods. JUUL takes nicotine or CBD pods so you can use it interchangeably.

Can you Vape CBD oil?

Yes, but only CBD oil made for vaping. Regular CBD oil is for oral consumption, and if you try and vape it, the results won’t be pleasant. You should only vape specially formulated CBD e-liquid known as vape juice. If in doubt, ask for advice when you shop.

Choosing an Oil

First of all, it’s important to pay attention to the ingredients of vape juice. Avoid oils that contain harmful ingredients such as diacetyl and 2,3-Pentanedione. These ingredients are toxic may cause bronchiolitis obliterans, also known as popcorn lung. Health and safety should be your primary concern, followed by cost. Also, try to always buy quality oil with known ingredients.

How to Start Vaping

Once you choose your vaporizer and vape juice select, you’re ready to vape! Before you start, please read the manufacturer’s instructions for your vape pen. If you know how to use it properly, you won’t cause damage to yourself or the pen.

Vape pens fall into two categories: draw activated and powered. All disposable pens and JUUL are draw-activated. So, once you have fitted your chosen pod to the JUUL, all you need to do is place the vape pen into the mouth and draw. Some cartridge pens are also draw-activated. Again, install the cartridge, place in your mouth and away you go.

If your reusable vape pen has a power button, install the cartridge, press the power button five times, and then you’re all set.

As you can see, once you have the right product and the corresponding device, vaping is easy. Experiment with different flavours and brands but remember to pay close attention to the ingredients!
