The state of Florida approved the use of marijuana and CBD oil for medicinal purposes in November of 2016 with the Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative. Kaya Life was the pioneer MMJ practice on the Florida Panhandle, starting patient consultation and care shortly thereafter. Since then, every day we put our mission into action, endeavoring to improve the quality of life and facilitate better physical and mental health for our patients using medical cannabis treatment methods.


If you suffer from chronic pain, stress, or a long-term illness, or if side effects from conventional treatments are causing problems, call our office at 850-213-1215 to speak with one of our caring staff members. We’re listening. Let us know about your situation and learn what medical marijuana is all about and what it can do for you. Or make an appointment online here.

The experienced and empathetic medical professionals at Kaya Life are dedicated to making sure that you get the correct assessment and care for your individual situation and needs.

Here’s what happens on your initial appointment:

  2. If you qualify for medicinal marijuana treatment, the doctor will register your certification and you’ll be entered into Florida state’s database.
  3. A staff member will assist you in filling out the online application form, and you’ll make an online application payment of $75 to the Florida Department of Health.
  4. Within two weeks, you will receive a temporary medical ID card via email from the state, allowing you to purchase from any approved medical cannabis dispensary or treatment center in Florida.

What Makes Kaya Life Different? – Personal Patient Care

Our doctors and staff members put patients first. We listen to you, learn about your needs, answer questions, and offer one-of-a-kind patient education and personal care.

We assist in your application process and entry into the Florida State Registry and give you specifically designed treatment plans with your preferences and situation in mind.

Many MMJ doctors fail to equip patients with a thorough understanding of what to expect when using medical cannabis. At Kaya Life, make sure that you are prepared. You’ll know that your Florida medical card application has been submitted and that you’ll soon be receiving the green light to start your MMJ treatment plan. And you’re on the way to a better quality of life, finding freedom from stress and pain using natural medicinal cannabinoids.

Medical Marijuana Education and Compassionate Patient Care

“We provide consultations to patients and teach them how medical marijuana will help with their condition, what to expect, where to go, what to buy, how to take it…. We care about our patients. Our patients come first.” -- Dr. Stephanie Johnson, Founder and practicing physician at Kaya Life.

Dr. Stephanie Johnson, owner and founding physician of Kaya Life, served as an ER doctor for 15 years and worked as an activist to combat the opioid epidemic in the U.S. until she opened the first Florida Panhandle MMJ clinic in 2016.
