August 31, 2022

Florida officials have released an emergency rule to address dosing and supply limits for medical cannabis products. The rule sets a daily dose THC limit per product and total THC limit per 70- and 35-day supply.

The rule states that medical cannabis patients should not exceed more than 24,500 mg of THC for non-smokable cannabis products (i.e. flower, prerolls) within 70 days. In addition, the rule states that patients should not purchase more than 2.5 ounces of smokable cannabis products within 35 days.

However, physicians can submit an electronic “Request for Exception” form through the Medical Marijuana Use Registry to increase the 35-day supply limit on smokable products to 4 ounces for patients. “The department will approve or disapprove the exception request within 14 calendar days,” the emergency rule states.

The daily dose THC limits and total THC limit per 70-day supply for approved medical cannabis products are listed in the emergency rule as follows:

Route of Administration Daily Dose Amount 70-Day Supply Limit
Edibles 60 mg THC 4,200 mg THC 
Inhalation (e.g., vaporization) 350 mg THC 24,500 mg THC 
Oral (e.g., capsules, tinctures) 200 mg THC 14,000 mg THC 
Sublingual (e.g., sublingual tinctures) 190 mg THC 13,300 mg THC 
Suppository 195 mg THC 13,650 mg THC 
Topical (e.g., creams) 150 mg THC 10,500 mg THC 
Marijuana in a form for smoking 2.025 grams N/A

In addition, licensed medical marijuana treatment centers in Florida “shall not dispense to a patient an amount exceeding the amount remaining on the patient’s current order. The amount remaining on a patient’s current order is calculated by subtracting all dispensations to the patient under the current order from the total amount allowed by such order,” the emergency rule states.
