Trulieve: the production of medicinal marijuana in Florida©

G. Hackney
This paper reports on the process of starting the first legal medical marijuana production and dispenser facility in northwest Florida—Trulieve. Trulieve is now a Florida licensed medical Cannabis provider, http://trulieve.com/about. The product produced is low THC-Cannabis, which means a patient will not get “high” from the low dosage. The goal is for medical pain relief, as well as the control of seizures—some epileptic children suffer from as many as 100 seizures per day. The plants are produced at an unknown location in Quincy, Florida—for an extraction process to infuse into medical devices via oral syringe, capsule, tincture, or vaporizer. In Tallahassee, the dispensary sells products using Cannabis extract—from capsules to vaporizer use (Steven Jiwanmall, 29 Sept 2016.
