Because I’m a staunch proponent of natural health, and since medical marijuana was legalized in Florida where I reside, I have been curious to know my available options for addressing my chronic pain and medical conditions with prescribed cannabis. At age 61, I’m plagued by chronic pain from osteoporosis and arthritic conditions throughout my body, especially in my neck, back, and knees. Currently, I am recovering from knee surgery, while considering surgery for my neck and another knee. I have a plethora of other serious conditions that CBD Hemp Oil has been reported to resolve, but those are my main concerns, which would undoubtedly justify my licensing qualification for the state of Florida as a medical marijuana patient. I had heard that there were several legal hoops to jump through and a short waiting period but was assured that the license was well worth enduring attaining.
So today I called a local medical marijuana clinic to inquire about making an appointment. The receptionist warned me that there would be several up-front out-of-pocket expenses, right out of the starting gate:
First, there would be $50 cash for the office visit. This doctor doesn’t accept insurance of any kind. Then the clinic charges $75 for each prescription that they write. That fee doesn’t include the cost of the medical cannabis. There is also an annual $450 medical marijuana license fee for the state of Florida.
I was shocked. The administrative fees between the clinic and the state alone were prohibitive enough to deny me their services, even if I could afford the prescriptions. I imagine that the vast majority of potential medical marijuana patients that genuinely qualify for treatment would also be forced to do without them, due to lack of affordability, just as in mainstream sick care.
Since CBD Hemp Oil products can legally be purchased by adult consumers in all 50 states and Canada without a prescription, I concluded that these non-prescription CBD Oils products are the most practical, affordable option for patients who could benefit from taking them. This is until and unless the prohibitive drug laws governing hemp and marijuana are drastically reduced and weakened.
Personally, I would like to see hemp completely deregulated, as it was during the founding years of our nation when farmers were required to grow hemp to fulfill their patriotic duty. But in the meantime, CTFO offers the highest quality CBD Hemp Oil products at the most affordable prices.
