Environmental and Socially Conscious Consumption

Cannabis in Florida

The Hemp Industry in Florida has allowed for equitable access into the cannabis industry. Barriers to access were created by legislative action known as the “marijuana pay to play scheme” and today there is only one minority-owned medical marijuana treatment center and the company originated out-of-state.

Cannabis in Florida will Grandfather Hemp Cultivators into the marijuana program. Hemp Cultivators and Hemp Food Establishments have proven their performance and credibility to the State and consumers are happy and eagerly awaiting access to the full array of the cannabis plant without having to pay exorbitant fees as in the medical marijuana program. Legislative action is required.

Consumers are happy they are being provided quality product; however, Floridians want the products the traditional marijuana cannabis market has provided for decades with the full bouquet of terpenes, cannabinoids, and percentages of THC. Typical ranges of THC flower (Flower that is typically between 15% to 35% delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol.).

Florida Medical Marijuana Fees: Application Fees: $60,063 to $146,00 (non-refundable competitive process). Vertical Integration required. Renewal fees (biennial) and are now based on an Emergency Rule (non-transparent) formula that will cost some MMTCs upwards of $1.28 million.

Medical Marijuana Patients Fees: $75 annual DOH ID Card. Physicians Visits $100 to $380 every 7 months. Plus, the cost of medical marijuana.

Hemp Cultivators Fees: Permits No Cost

Hemp Food Establishment Fees: $650 to Manufacture, Retail Sale, or Distribute.

**The cost of medical marijuana in Florida is outrageously more expensive than other states and hemp cannabinoid products. That is because MMTCs are passing high fees onto the consumers.

Example of Medical Marijuana product. (Flower (35% THC, .03+%CBD). Cost: 7 grams $50+

Example of Hemp Product (CBD Flower (0.3% THC, 21% CBD). Cost: 7 grams $24+
