Lets get in touch

COMPASSIONATE MARIJUANA DOCTORS & EDUCATED STAFF We staff our medical marijuana center with experienced and compassionate doctors, medical staff, attorneys and other support personnel who assist people just like you with medical marijuana information in full compliance with the State of Florida medical marijuana laws. REVIEW AND APPROVAL After receiving a physician’s review and approval, qualified patients receive a signed Physician Certification Form that allows them to apply for a Medical Marijuana Identification Card. After receiving their card, a patient may legally obtain medical marijuana without fear of violating State of Florida marijuana laws. Many of our patients are understandably nervous about choosing medical marijuana as a treatment option, but our medical and legal teams provide support and information needed to make educated decisions about their treatment options.

We at Compassionate Care know that finding the right Dr. to represent you is a choice not to be taken lightly. Contact us today.

The primary mission of the Compassionate Care Collective (CCC) is to provide the certification necessary for qualified people to obtain medical marijuana under the State of Florida medical marijuana laws.

Along with the certification process, we offer factual medical marijuana information and education to our patients to allay apprehensions about the choice of medical marijuana as an alternative therapeutic treatment to pharmaceuticals.

We are a professional medical marijuana clinic. All necessary certification for doctors is complete before the doctors conduct patient consultations. Our fully licensed Florida medical marijuana doctors conduct their legal and ethical duties in full compliance with Florida’s Medical Marijuana Certification guidelines.
