MESQUITE, NV/ ACCESSWIRE / April 17, 2019 / Cannabis Sativa, Inc. (OTCQB:CBDS) is proud to announce that PrestoDoctor has expanded its telemedicine services into Oklahoma. Currently, PrestoDoctor provides cannabis patients with medical marijuana recommendations via both their online telemedicine platform and dispensary kiosks operating in California, Nevada, and New York, and will now extend their services into Oklahoma.
To use their online services, interested patients may sign up for an account and complete a profile at prestodoctor.com. They can then schedule an appointment time for a face-to-face appointment with one of PrestoDoctor's licensed physicians via Preto's proprietary telemedicine video service. ''PrestoDoctor offers a fast, confidential and cost-effective way for patients to become authorized medicinal marijuana users'', stated COO Rob Tankson.
Kyle Powers, CEO of PrestoDoctor said, ''Unlike many states, Oklahoma’s medical marijuana program does not identify a specific list of qualifying conditions. A physician may certify a patient if they determine that the use of medical marijuana would be an appropriate treatment for the patient’s medical condition. This has sparked a huge opportunity for PrestoDoctor to be able to provide convenient access as more than 89,000 patients that have registered with the state of Oklahoma''.
On June 26, 2018, Oklahoma passed the legalization of medical marijuana. The program has shown tremendous growth since going live on August 25, 2018. According to the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority, the state has approved licenses for:
- Growers: 2,464
- Dispensaries: 1,317
- Processors: 685
- Patients: 89,011 (Patients receive a “license” that is good for two years.)
