NuggMD Brings Industry-Leading Medical Cannabis Telemedicine Services to Pennsylvania – PRNewswire

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — NuggMD, the nation’s leading medical marijuana telemedicine platform, announced today it is launching their services to patients in Pennsylvania for $139. NuggMD is currently available in California, Nevada, New York, Missouri, Ohio and Oklahoma. NuggMD has virtually connected over half a million patients with fully-licensed medical marijuana physicians since 2016.

Patients between the ages of 45 and 74 years old comprise 62% of Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana users, allowing those most at-risk of COVID-19 to obtain a MMJ card safely from their homes without risking exposure. On March 20, 2020, the Pennsylvania Department of Health suspended regulations limiting five patients per caregiver and requiring background checks for renewal applications in order to streamline evaluations, and allowed remote MMJ card consultations for all patients.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf legalized medical marijuana on April 17, 2016 and the first dispensaries began serving patients in April 2018. As of May 15, 2020, there are almost 300,000 patients registered in the program, up 94% since January 2020.
