Get Your Louisiana Medical Marijuana Card Online Through Telehealth. It’s Safe, Easy, and Private!

Why Telehealth is the Safest Way to Get Your Medical Marijuana Card in Louisiana

Technology has greatly increased our access to life saving medical procedures and medications. And not only has technology changed the way we look at medicine, but it’s also changed the way medicine looks at us!

Technology has helped us pave the way to live longer and healthier lives, and during the pandemic of COVID-19 it became increasingly clear that technology would play a huge role in how we stay safe and stay healthy.

Louisiana has taken this approach to heart with medical marijuana, and offers telemedicine as a way to get approved for a Louisiana medical marijuana card. And we’re happy to say, it’s by far and beyond the safest way to get access to medical marijuana.

What is Telehealth or Telemedicine?

Most people have likely heard of telemedicine or telehealth by now.

This is the practice where you can communicate with your doctor over a video chat or a phone call, usually using an application on your computer or mobile device.

With telemedicine it's easy to live far away from a medical professional who can assess your condition and give you treatment options without requiring you to physically go to an office or a hospital.

Unfortunately, not everyone can easily access doctors due to financial hardship, geographical location, driving constraints, or for other reasons.

Telehealth platforms offer a great and safe way for anyone who wants access to see a medical professional, without the unnecessary exposure to large groups of people in waiting rooms or requiring you to drive an unnecessary distance for a simple conversation with a doctor.

Using Telemedicine to Get Your Medical Marijuana Card Can Keep You from Being Exposed to COVID-19

The safest way to get a medical marijuana card is through a telemedicine consultation with a licensed physician.

During the pandemic, it became increasingly clear that simple medical consultations shouldn’t overexpose people to patients with COVID-19, as many private practice clinics and hospitals became overrun with COVID-19 patients.

At the beginning of the pandemic, COVID-19 patients looking for treatment were often packed arm-to-arm with patients in waiting rooms trying to access consultations, regular checkups, surgeries, or other non-COVID related medical practices.

This unnecessary exposure created a significant problem for clinics and physicians trying to separate COVID-19 cases from otherwise every day or regular checkups, and in many cases surgeries and consultations were postponed indefinitely until the hospital or clinic had space for them.

This is reason #1 for why telemedicine is the safest way to get your medical marijuana card.

With telemedicine, you can consult with a real doctor, who can review not only your medical records, but talk to you face to face through technology and address your specific needs, all without having to be exposed to COVID-19, from the safety of your own home!

And often, telemedicine appointments are covered by insurance (though MMJ evaluations generally are not), or in many cases they are cheaper than driving to a clinic, waiting for an unnecessarily long time in a room packed with other people, all to spend what seems like 10-rushed minutes with a physician just trying to move through patients.
