Compassionate Cannabis Clinic is a the preeminent practice of cannabis medicine in the state of Florida.
The Compassionate Cannabis Clinic offers patients in Venice and Western Florida specialized treatment from a compassionate doctor utilizing medical marijuana recommendations. With a vested interest in the care of their patients, Compassionate Cannabis Clinic strives to educate their visitors and encourage them to do their research as they pursue an improved quality of life.
Dr. Barry M Gordon graduated from the Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1981 as one of the first emergency medicine doctors to graduate in the United States. With over 32 years working in the emergency room, Dr. Gordon wrote thousands of narcotic prescriptions, and once Oxycontin became a traditional medication he started to see many adverse effects of prescription overdoses. He would revive thousands of overdose patients, with more than 60% returning within the next few weeks with another overdose, and this constant pain caused by pharmaceutical painkillers left a bad taste in the doctor’s mouth. The doctor started searching for an alternative therapy to offer, and found marijuana as a viable option that pleasantly surprised him with its benefits and few side effects. Poring through hours of research, Dr. Gordon’s enthusiasm was kindled soon before Florida overwhelming legalized medical marijuana use, and together with executive director Patrick DeLuca, they founded the Compassionate Cannabis Clinic of Venice, opening in January 2017.
The Compassionate Cannabis Clinic has been recognized as the premiere practice of cannabis medicine, where they see patients for a variety of illnesses and create a treatment plan utilizing medical marijuana. The doctor and staff feel a duty to their patients, advocating and educating them on the many uses of medical marijuana as a therapy and working one-on-one with each to end their suffering. They prioritize their patient’s care and education, and are working hard with state legislature to ensure all qualifying Florida patients can quickly and safely access medical marijuana for their conditions.

Dr Barry Gordon is the nicest doctor Iv ever met . He is well educated , always smiling and the staff are amazing as well ! Highly recommended !!!! 😁
This group operates at the highest level. Compassion is in their name and it shows in their mannerisms and attitudes. However, more importantly, their emphasis on spreading knowledge gave me an invaluable outlook on the nature of using this amazing medication. I left with more information and resources than I could have ever hoped for. Thank you!
Dr. Barry, like a father, and Patty, like the mother hen, patients at the clinic are treated like family. A place of caring and understanding not judgements.
I started with another clinic and was having the WORST experience ever with delays and not being able to connect with anyone. Dr. Gordon and his staff are absolutely amazing! Once I connected with them, the process rolled along to completion in record time and for the first time in almost 7 years, I am almost completely off my prescription meds AND having more relief from my ailments than I ever dreamed possible! I am being able to LIVE.....
My chronic pain is under better control than ever in the past, I'm sleeping well, anxiety has decreased, even my depression and bipolar symptoms are under control. My ADD has cause me to struggle in college and receive grades that I know I am capable of doing better but I just can't focus and concentrate and that is under control too!!! I knocked out nearly a week of assignments yesterday in one day with a clear head, pain free, and happy.
The staff is knowledgeable and able to answer questions intelligently. Everyone is friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is so comfortable. It's almost like an "old friend" or "family" feel to it.
I'm so glad you guys are here for we patients that the medical community has not been able to help effectively. You're awesome! I highly recommend this clinic.
Arguably the finest cannabis Care in the state. Knowledgeable, thorough, and dedicated to their patients. Highly recommend.

My wife came across medical marijuana looking for help with my PTSD and other chronic physical issues. In her research she came across Dr. Gordon at Compassionate Cannabis Clinic of Venice, Florida. I made my first call to Compassionate Cannabis Clinic and talked with Patricia, she answered many questions and made me an appointment for January 6th.
At this first clinic visit I talked to Patricia again. I was having a tough time and she very nicely answered my questions and concerns. They create a peaceful, calm atmosphere in the office.
Dr. Gordon came to get me for my physical and stuff. He was friendly, thorough, professional, and explained a lot about medical marijuana. I had filled out paperwork before coming to the office and have my doctors submitting medical history.
I was impressed with the knowledge, understanding and compassion everyone in this office has for people that need help.
