Welcome to Kaya Life in Pensacola, a city that is one of Florida’s best-kept secrets: it’s a vibrant city with lots to see and do, and just a short hop from beautiful Pensacola Beach on the Emerald Coast. Originally settled by Spanish explorers, Pensacola boasts a rich history and many museums of interest. Today it’s a great place to enjoy white-sand beaches and warm water, sport fishing, kayaking, dolphin cruises, and great local seafood cuisine.

The use of CBD oil and marijuana for medicinal purposes was approved by the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative in November of 2016. Less than a month later, Kaya Life became the first MMJ practice in the Panhandle to open its doors, and to put into action our mission to improve quality of life and facilitate wellness for patients through the use of cannabinoids.


If you’ve been struggling to cope with a long-term illness, stress, or chronic pain, if you are suffering from the side effects of conventional treatment, give us a call at 850-213-1215 to speak with one of our caring staff members to learn what medical marijuana is all about, and what it can do for you. Or make an appointment online here.

Every day, people from all over Florida search online for a “medical card doctor near me” looking for a solution to the pain or stress they’re undergoing.

In addition to entry into the State Registry, we provide a full physician’s consultation along with personalized recommendations and treatment plans, so that all of your questions are answered and all of your needs are met.

Many medical cannabis offices send patients out the door without much understanding of what to expect. We take the time to walk you through the process so that you are confident and prepared.

When you leave our office, you can expect to have the application for your medical marijuana card submitted and to be well on your way to relief from pain and stress, and to a better quality of life through the use of medicinal cannabinoids.
