Medical marijuana, or MMJ, is changing lives across the country as laws change and treatment options for a variety of conditions expand. If you’re living in Louisiana, you may have heard that medical cannabis is available; and if you’re reading this, you’re probably interested in trying it for yourself.
Elevate Holistics is a telehealth service that focuses on helping people get their medical marijuana recommendations as simply and easily as possible, from the privacy of their own homes. Using the Elevate Holistics platform, you can quickly connect with medical professionals and experts in the cannabis field to receive not only your medical recommendation, but also consultations about CBD, cannabis consumption and recommendations, and holistic wellness.
So, just how easy is it to get your MMJ recommendation for the state of Louisiana via Elevate Holistics? I recently got mine, and the whole process took under an hour! Here’s what you can expect:
First, you’ll need to visit https://elevate-holistics.com, select “Get My Card”, and choose your state. Then, choose the “Medical Cannabis Certification” option. The cost to receive your recommendation through Elevate Holistics is $130 for first-time patients, and $80 for annual renewals.
At this point, you can also opt to add-on additional consultations about CBD, holistic wellness, and other cannabis products for $40. If you’re new to the world of cannabis and are feeling a bit overwhelmed, this is a great option. The experts at Elevate Holistics can help you find the right products to suit your unique needs.
Next, you’ll be asked to book a virtual appointment via the website’s easy-to-use calendar. Simply select a date and time that works for you, provide some basic personal information (such as name, email, and date of birth), and provide your payment info to finalize your appointment.
Now your consultation is booked! In the meantime, continue to your profile page to fill out some additional intake forms and provide photos of your proof of identity (driver’s license, passport, or state ID). Be sure to provide all of the required info before your consultation call to streamline the process!
Once all that is done, sit back and relax until your appointment. You won’t need to download a third-party application like Zoom, or use the phone; you’ll be able to join the call directly from the Elevate Holistics website, via your phone, laptop, or PC.
When I spoke to one of the doctors at Elevate Holistics, it didn’t feel rushed; I was able to ask questions, explain my history of medicinal cannabis use to the doctor, and ultimately get the recommendation I needed.
If you’re applying for a medical marijuana recommendation in the state of Louisiana, you’ll need to provide the doctor with your medical cannabis dispensary of choice, so they can send your recommendation letter there directly. If you’re uncertain, just let the doctor know – someone from the Elevate Holistics team will reach out to you after the call to get that information once you’ve considered your local dispensary options.
For those of you in Baton Rouge, I recommend going with Capitol Wellness Solutions on Essen Lane. They’ve got a great and knowledgeable staff, a wide selection of medicinal cannabis products, and loads of great reviews from happy patients.
The process for getting your MMJ recommendation in the state of Louisiana is really that simple. Book your appointment, fill out some forms, and talk to the doctor, all from the comfort and privacy of your home.
Now, all that’s left is to place an order at your local dispensary, then sit back and enjoy some well-deserved relief!
