Vape oil is legal in Florida along with oral tinctures, no flower as of 2017! When you buy a vape pen and cartridge from one of the dispensaries statewide you will receive everything needed to start vaping right away. The pens come in many different and unique designs, but all operate the same basic way. The charger end of the pen is typically equipped with a re-chargeable battery that you simply plug into any outlet. It will also have the vape oil cartridge, with either your CBD or THC oil already pre-loaded into the cylinder. After your pen is fully charged the vape oil cartridge will screw into the charging unit.

Each dispensary offers advice on dosing instructions for their medicine and we highly suggest a quick talk with them directly before taking any of their oral oils.
