AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Surterra Texas, a division of Parallel and one of three medical cannabis companies licensed in Texas’ Compassionate Use Program, today announced an exclusive partnership with Heally, a leading telehealth platform, to provide Texans with easy access to doctors for online medical cannabis evaluations and prescriptions.
Through this partnership, Texans interested in natural, cannabis-based remedies for certain conditions can go through the Heally platform to connect with registered physicians via an online telehealth visit and, if qualified, obtain a Texas medical cannabis prescription online. While medical cannabis is legal in Texas, patients require a prescription before they can access medical cannabis products in the state.
“With our partnership with Heally, Surterra Texas can now offer Texans a convenient and confidential way to see doctors who can determine if cannabis is right for them and to participate in the Texas Compassionate Use Program,” said Marcus Ruark, President of Surterra Texas. “We’re committed to bringing natural and effective medical cannabis products to patients across Texas. Integrating Heally’s innovative technology solution helps improve patient access to medical cannabis in Texas—while connecting patients to medical experts to answer their questions without leaving their home.”
Surterra Texas offers a range of products, including TranquilTM, a 19:1 CBD:THC ratio; SereneTM, a 4:1 CBD:THC ratio; and SootheTM, a 1:1 CBD:THC ratio. Each of the tincture blends has been formulated with proprietary terpene profiles to enhance the experience of the cannabinoid ratios and to help patients with the currently-approved treatable conditions of the Compassionate Use Program, including terminal cancer, spasticity, autism, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and a wide range of neurological diseases.
“Heally is excited to partner with Surterra Texas to help improve patients’ ability to connect with board-certified physicians throughout the state of Texas,” said Greg Rovner, CEO of Heally. “Surterra’s commitment
