KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — NuggMD, the nation’s leading cannabis-focused telemedicine platform, is lowering their price for medical marijuana evaluations in Missouri. The new lower price for evaluations will be $99. This is a $40 discount over their current price of $139, with the new price being the lowest offered anywhere in the state by a wide margin. The discount is effective as of Friday, Feb. 14, 2020.
This discount is temporary and will last until the first medical marijuana dispensaries open, which is anticipated to be late Spring or early Summer. The Department has issued its license approval list which can be found on their main website, but it will be several weeks before these dispensaries become operational.
Patients are not waiting for dispensaries to open before getting their cards, however. As of Feb, 1, more than 31,000 Missourians have been approved for medical marijuana in the state, and the number is increasing by roughly 1,000 patients a week.
NuggMD opened operations in Missouri on Jan. 6th, 2020 and agree that Missourians are enthusiastically joining the program, which they had predicted in their opening press release.
“We were expecting a positive response here, but the numbers that came in were surprising,” says Alex Milligan, Chief Marketing Officer and Co-Founder of NuggMD. “It’s been a busy several weeks, but we want to do everything we can to make it easy for patients to make purchases when the first dispensaries open.”
“Operations are running smoothly despite the demand,” says CEO and co-founder Collin Mann. “The average wait time for patients at the moment is about 5 minutes from the time they enter the digital waiting room till they see their doctor and the user experience has been very smooth.”
NuggMD believes that most patients are joining the
