New York’s Premier Medical Marijuana Card Center
COVID-19 Remote Visits
Due to coronavirus, we are allowing all patients with good medical records,
or a condition that would be obvious over a webcam to have remote visits.
If you are in need of a Medical Marijuana Card, New York allows telemedicine visits.
This requires a cellphone, or computer or tablet with a webcam,
and a good internet connection.
If our doctor doesn’t certify you, we don’t charge you. The doctor is a gatekeeper for the New York State Medical Marijuana program, and we have never had a known case where a patient has not received a card after our doctor qualified them.
If you have a card, or are recently expired, and have medical records to prove your condition aside from you certification visits, we will honor our return patient discount and offer you a special deal on your certification. (This obviously does not include the NY State application fee.)
Medical marijuana is one of the safest medications available. Period. There has not been a single death recorded from an overdose of cannabis. If our doctor does not believe it is a good idea for you medically, they will tell you. Most of the few significant negative events with cannabis involve untreated or latent schizophrenia. Chronic use of cannabis causes no organ damage, and it has been shown that, in adults, the cognitive effects sometimes associated with chronic cannabis use dissipate when cannabis intake is discontinued. This is in contrast to even acetaminophen, which causes thousands of hospitalizations and kills hundreds of Americans every year. (Statistics)
So just imagine walking into our discreet medical office, visiting with our kind and knowledgeable doctor, resting assured that you will either be qualified to receive your card, or you will not be charged a penny. And with your card you will be able to reduce your use of addictive and harmful medications and get relief.
