Get the Relief You Deserve With Medical Cannabis.
Welcome to Veterans Cannabis Care
Mission: to offer veterans an all-natural alternative to traditional medicine through cannabis by offering FREE access to the Florida Medical Marijuana program. We’re passionate about providing our nation’s heroes with the care they need at no charge.
Veterans Cannabis Care was founded in 2021 and became the first nonprofit in Florida to offer first-time patient appointments free to veterans. The initial state registration fee is also covered, and we hope to cover costs for follow-up appointments as our funding grows.
Veterans Cannabis Care was founded to give veterans a chance at a better quality of life through cannabis.
Too many veterans are living on a fixed income and cannot afford the costs associated with obtaining a Florida medical marijuana card. Veterans also currently make up almost 25% of the nation’s unhoused population and have more than double the suicide rate of non-veterans.
We believe cannabis can be a far more beneficial treatment for the mental and physical ailments that affect veterans than traditional big pharma drugs.
Are you ready for relief?
We serve all military veterans who are permanent or seasonal Florida residents.
They are committed to helping our community, especially veterans. I was skeptical about all of this. I now wish I had made my appointment sooner. They make you comfortable and treat you like a patient. All my concerns were addressed without skipping a beat. I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience. I not only recommend this Doctor (and staff), I think we have a responsibility to ourselves and our loved ones to at least explore these herbal/medicinal treatment options.
Today was my first visit at this establishment and the staff made me feel incredibly comfortable the entire time. I am a veteran and I am very happy with the knowledge and kindness that was given to me once I walked in the door. I highly suggest this place to all disabled veterans like myself.
If I could give this place 10 stars I would. From the initial sign up process to the end it was excellent customer service. The care they gave me as a veteran was top notch. The doctor had the best bed side manner and talked to me liked he really cared about my health. Everything was smooth and I would recommend this clinic to anyone looking into Medical Marijuana.
