Updates At MÜV Dispensary FL Jump to Recipe
If you have shopped at a Florida cannabis dispensary recently, you may have noticed some changes – the color of packaging and exit bags, the THC symbol affixed to both, and the shortened strain names on product labels.
So – what is going on?
The Department of Health takes the management of medical marijuana, as they should! One of the primary concerns relates to children. It’s the goal of the Department of Health to ensure no product is appealing in any way to those underage – again, as they should!
Because of these changes, we have received quite a few questions from patients like you. We compiled some of the most frequently asked about product packaging, policies, and more to ensure your experience at MÜV is as pleasant (and unsurprising) as possible.
Frequently Asked Questions About FL Medical Marijuana
How Can I Purchase Smokable Marijuana?
Smokable flower is allowed in the state of Florida, with exceptions. In order to have flower added to your recommendation, you must visit your cannabis physician and discuss your desire to consume marijuana via smoking, and sign an additional waiver. To contact your physician and discuss this option, use our Physician Locator here.
Do Devices Need To Be Dispensed?
As of September 1, 2021, your recommending physician must create a separate order for devices purchased for each consumption method, which includes: concentrate pens, flower vaporizers, and vape batteries. To contact your physician and discuss adding flower, use our Physician Locator.
Why Is Cannabis Packaging All White? And Why Aren’t Tinctures In Boxes?
To ensure packaging does not appeal to children, all medical cannabis products will now be housed in all-white packaging. Stickers must now be affixed to the container the product itself is housed in to ensure the devices or applicators are child resistant. This change will affect MÜV Tinctures, Oral Spray, and topicals, which will no longer be packaged in boxes.
Why Did The Strain Names On Patient Labels Change?
One of the fun and entertaining pieces of the cannabis space lies in strain names. Punch Cookies, Blueberry, Cherry Punch, Clementine, and Ice Cream Cake, to name a few, are popular strains offered at MÜV.
Because some of these names could make a child want to open the package to see what’s inside, all MMTCs have updated strain names on patient labels. At MÜV, this was achieved by removing vowels from these names on patient labels only – the strain names on the website and in-store menus will remain the same.
Why Does The Transdermal Gel Bottle Look Different?
Evolve Transdermal Gel has evolved. The amount of medication in each bottle remains the same, 500mg of cannabinoids, but the amount of inactive ingredients has increased. This means that each dose will provide a smaller metered dose of 8mg of cannabinoids and, potentially, more hydration.
Is Curbside Pickup Allowed?
Unfortunately, curbside pickup is not allowed. This is to ensure that the proper person is dispensed their medication, and the medication leaves the facility in the hands of the person it is dispensed to. If you have questions regarding the option of medical marijuana delivery, contact our Patient Care Team.
Can I Place Orders In The Drive Through?
To take advantage of drive through services, you must first place an express order online or with our Patient Care Team. Drive through is not intended for placing orders.
Drive through express order pickup is offered at six MÜV Dispensaries in Florida: Fort Myers, Longwood, Orange City, Shalimar, St. Augustine, and Tallahassee.
Where Can I Consume Medical Cannabis In FL?
While medical cannabis is legal in Florida, consuming it anywhere is not. Patients may dose their alternative medicine at home or on private property, with permission from the owner. Consuming cannabis in hospice or assisted living is permitted based on the individual care facility’s rules.
You can find more state-specific details here.
Why Did Marijuana Crumble and Rosin Packaging Change?
To ensure no child will accidentally be able to open Live Rosin or Crumble, both are now placed in a child-resistant package almost identical to that of MÜV Flower jars. After opening the child-resistant package, the concentrate is housed in its usual glass jar, affixed to the top of the child-resistant container.
Why Are Deliveries Delayed?
We try to make each delivery of medical cannabis in a timely manner, but some circumstances are out of our control, namely: traffic (particularly during season) and severe weather (particularly during hurricane season, and especially in the Panhandle).
If you have questions regarding your delivery status, contact Patient Care Team here.
Why Can’t I Return Or Exchange Products?
MÜV views medical marijuana as just that – medicine. While we will return faulty products or devices, for example, an All-in-One vape that is not hitting, we do not return or exchange based on dislike of effects.
Is MÜV Pet-Friendly?
As much as we would love to invite every fur, feather and scale baby into MÜV Dispensaries, only service animals are allowed in MÜV Dispensaries. This is to ensure the safety of the animal, our patients, and our MedTenders.
