As a Florida Medical Cannabis patient, you have several choices available for purchasing medication. While not all approved Medical Marijuana Treatment Center's (MMTC's) are fully operational, there are multiple companies with physical locations in the Tampa Bay Area and several others who deliver. New dispensaries will be opening across the state in the coming months. You are not limited to one dispensary and may fill your order with as many dispensaries as needed.
Tips for Your First Purchase
Have a plan - research dispensaries, products, and prices. Take into consideration available discounts and first time offers when planning purchases. We're happy to give suggestions to our patients on where to start.
Unless you already know what works for you, don't over buy. You can make as many purchases as required during your order period, up to your milligram limit.
Take your time. When you get to the dispensary notify them that you are first time patient and may need some assistance. Ask questions about the products and available offerings.
Know your prices - to compare prices divide the price of the item by the amount of total milligrams of the product.
Example: Trulieve Truclear $60/850mg = $.07/mg
Surterra Pure Reserve Oil $65/900 = $.07/mg
Curaleaf Indica CO2 Concentrate $30/375 = $.08/mg

Surterra has physical locations opening across the State, with a location in Tampa near University Mall/USF for those local to our clinic. Surterra is uniquely different from other MMTC's as their main product lines do not stress the importance of cannabis strains. Instead, they formulate their products to target specific conditions & symptoms based off of the CBD to THC ratio and a set profile of natural terpenes. This ratio makes them a great choice for patients new to cannabis.
New in 2018, Surterra now offers strain based vaporizer products under the Florida Finest label.
Lab results are available online.
Surterra is currently the least expensive MMTC in most product categories.

A growing market
Patient dispensary options will continue to expand in Florida over the coming months and years. As we've already seen over the last few months, product choices will increase and prices will decrease as more and more patients join the program. There are other licensed MMTC's who have not yet opened for sales.
