A complete solution for cannabis consumers
Once a product selection is made, we present purchase and pricing option from our marketplace of hundreds of retail, brand and delivery partners. This ‘Amazon.com of cannabis’ strategy presents HelloMD the opportunity to participate in the $50B cannabis market with 15% commission on sales. There is currently no national, online retailer for cannabis products.
Our proprietary technical platform guides patients on their journey with medical cannabis. The initial connection is with a licensed doctor, which takes place over live video feed using a smartphone (Telehealth). HelloMD is already the leader in this space with more than 50,000 completed consults.
Consumers browse our database of 15,000+ unique articles, questions & answers covering product selection and advice. This public content has the added advantage of attracting new visitors to our site through organic search, currently growing at 20% per month and making our customer acquisition costs close to zero.
Integrated into 400+ Partner Websites
Hundreds of partners have integrated HelloMD technology into their own websites, which provides their customers direct access to our doctor community and many have integrated with our API offerings to automate the process of new customer on-boarding (regulatory compliance).
