LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SpeedWeed, California's largest, most experienced and fastest growing medical marijuana delivery service has entered into a strategic partnership with HelloMD, a service that connects members to doctors who can authorize their recommendation and allow them to get their legal marijuana prescription via online video consultations.
The partnership, the first of its kind, is focused on convenience and patient privacy. By leveraging technology, the HelloMD telehealth platform has been seamlessly integrated into SpeedWeed's proprietary software. Patients who visit SpeedWeed.com can, via HelloMD, consult immediately with a doctor and, if qualified, receive or renew their medical marijuana recommendation online without ever leaving their home.
"We have many patients who simply cannot leave their homes and many others who do not wish to visit a storefront dispensary. HelloMD recognizes that these patients should be able to speak to a qualified physician," says AJ Gentile, CEO, SpeedWeed. "We have built a reputation for convenience and privacy. The HelloMD network of physicians share these values. It's a perfect alignment of two companies with similar mission statements: to provide fast, easy, and discreet access to medical marijuana."
"We are excited to partner with an industry leader and a business so equally passionate about helping those in need," says Mark Hadfield, CEO of HelloMD. "In so many ways SpeedWeed is the ideal partner for HelloMD. Its proven expertise in delivery is a valuable service to all new and existing medical marijuana patients alike, many of whom have difficulty or prefer not to leave their homes to visit a dispensary. The combination of an online doctors consultation, with easy and fast delivery is a game changer for this growth industry."
