People still think you have to medicate with a joint or bong, its not that way anymore.” Users create an account, supply their address and Meadow dispatches a doctor to their door. Appointments are same day and each examination takes between 15 and 45 minutes. If the doctor decides a recommendation for marijuana is appropriate, patients pay a flat fee of $100. Those who don’t get a recommendation are not charged. CannabisMD also offers renewals medical marijuana patients typically need to get their recommendations renewed each year which can be done over Skype for a $50 fee. The company says it personally vets each physician it works with to ensure they have a deep understanding of how cannabis is used to treat various conditions, down to which strains and applications are most appropriate for specific ailments. Meadow will also continue to offer its delivery service, which allows people to place online orders from local dispensaries for same day delivery, though Hua notes the delivery service and CannabisMD are separate and doctors are instructed not to recommend specific dispensaries, only forms of treatment.
