Florida regulators set caps on THC dosage amounts in medical marijuana products and the supply that doctors can recommend for MMJ patients.

According to Tampa-based public radio station WUSF, the new rules limit THC to 24,500 milligrams over a 70-day time period for nonsmokable marijuana and caps the dosage for other form factors such as edibles, inhalation and tinctures.

Daily THC doses are capped at:

  • 60 milligrams for edibles.
  • 350 milligrams for vape products.
  • 200 milligrams for capsules and tinctures.
  • 190 milligrams for sublingual tinctures and suppositories.
  • 150 milligrams for topicals.

The updated rules went into effect Monday, WUSF reported.

The changes enact a state law that sets a 2.5-ounce limit on smokable flower purchases over a 35-day period and create a way for doctors to seek an exemption for patients who need more medicine beyond the limit.
