Florida is home to some of the best beaches, golf courses, and amusement parks in the world.  An amazing array of activities for all ages, along with a half dozen major colleges and universities may be the reason roughly 1000 people move to Florida every day.  Florida’s cannabis and dispensary options are among the most interesting of any State.

There is no adult use or recreational cannabis in Florida yet.  However there are hundreds of delta-8 dispensaries throughout the State, significantly more than any other State.  There are also many State licensed medical cannabis dispensaries or Medical Cannabis Treatment Centers, as they are called in Florida’s medical marijuana regulations.

However Florida’s controversial licensing process, only granted a small number of dispensary operating permits for the entire State. Each permit holder then has the option to open up to 125 retail dispensaries in Miami, Orlando, and throughout cities in Florida. Further, the regulation mandated all these operators be vertically integrated, meaning they have to grow their own weed, and make their own edibles and vapes.  This is contrast to every other State, which allow for multiple license types and holders, which generally puts retailers and product manufacturers in distinct lanes like other mature industries.  For instance if Coca-Cola, needed to grow their own caffein and only sell through their own stores.

The unintended consequence of these regulations is that the half dozen State-licensed operators have largely failed at growing  good weed and producing effective, affordably priced products.  They should instead be focused on running the best dispensary in Jacksonville or Tallahassee. The lack of quality and relatively expensive prices have created room for delta 8 dispensaries and smoke shops to compete with state licensed treatment centers.
