L.A. dispensary SpeedWeed, which operates a delivery service with 50 drivers, is now helping its customers obtain medical cannabis authorizations from doctors by video conferencing.
To offer this feature, SpeedWeed has integrated a service called HelloMD directly into its software. The HelloMD service connects patients to doctors who can authorize their marijuana recommendation via internet video consultation.
SpeedWeed is using this service to stand out from what it believes are 400 delivery services just in the Los Angeles area alone.
Delivery has been convenient and private, and patients wanted their doctor’s appointment to be convenient and private as well.
AJ Gentile, CEO of SpeedWeed
According to HelloMD, the entire process, from medical records to recommendation takes 20 minutes.
