Dr. Mitchell offers evaluations for eligible patients seeking to use low-THC cannabis or medical cannabis under the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014. Pensacola Wellness Solutions is now able to provide patients with a naturally therapeutic alternative to conventional methods of therapy that have failed to treat or alleviate their current debilitating medical condition(s) or ailment(s).  

Low-THC Cannabis has very low amounts of the THC and does not usually produce the “high” commonly associated with cannabis. Patients with cancer or a condition that causes chronic seizures or muscle spasms may qualify to receive low-THC cannabis.  

Medical Cannabis can contain sufficient levels of the psychoactive ingredient THC to produce the “high” commonly associated with cannabis. If a patient is suffering from a condition that has been determined to be terminal by two physicians, he or she may qualify for medical cannabis.  

Florida law has several requirements for patients to be eligible to receive low-THC cannabis or medical cannabis. For more information regarding the rules and regulations of medicinal marijuana in the state of Florida, visit the Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
