Dispensaries Guide – Chapter 4

The Dispensary Section of MarijuanaDoctors.com

The producer’s section is a search feature that was created with the purpose of helping patients locate and purchase their medicine from an authorized producer, dispensary, clinic or retailer. This section aids in protecting physicians from medical steering, pharmaceutical pushing or the violation of HIPAA laws.


Doctors now have the ability to tell their patients to look on the producer’s section of MarijuanaDoctors.com, in order to find the nearest dispensaries carrying the formulation of medical marijuana that they require. Similarly, states have warned producers against steering patients to any specific physicians, encouraging dispensaries to refer patients seeking compassionate care to MarijuanaDoctors.com, to find a physician nearest to them.

Beneficial Features of the MD Producer’s Section

  • Online Booking for First-Time Consultations: We allow dispensaries registered with MarijuanaDoctors.com to take advantage of our robust web property. The licensed pharmacists running your dispensary have the ability to book a first-time consultation with a patient through our seamlessly automated system. This makes dispensaries viable and convenient options for patients looking to obtain medical marijuana from a licensed producer.
  • Unique Digital Phone Number: Each listing receives a digital phone number to connect patients with our advertising producers directly from our mobile platform. We also provide monthly reporting to our producers so they can easily track the success of these digital phone numbers.
  • Protection Against Liability: To avoid any legal liability against potential medical steering, physicians can refer patients to the producer’s section on MarijuanaDoctors.com, where patients can choose the right producer based on who has the formulations of medicine they require.
  • Telehealth Options: Once selecting a producer, patients have the ability to schedule a first-time consultation with the location via our telehealth portal, avoiding the inconvenience of needing to visit the brick-and-mortar location in-person.
  • Save Time, Money and Resources: Our convenient automatization, along with the newer delivery options now available in most states, also saves you time, money and resources, ultimately allowing your operation to run more efficiently and productively.

Connecting Patients, Physicians and Dispensary Pharmacists

When it comes down to the actual medicine, dispensary pharmacists have the closest hands-on access to any medicated products available and along with that access comes a detailed understanding of the product’s effects, as they pertain to a variety of symptoms and ailments.

MarijuanaDoctors.com gives patients and physicians the ability to interact with these individuals virtually. This provides added benefit to both patients and doctors in need of medical marijuana product information, like:

  • Physicians can now make educated decisions that will benefit all of their patients with similar conditions
  • Patients will be able to find the best products that most effectively treat their specific issues.

Making an Appointment to Visit a Dispensary

Once a patient has received a medical marijuana recommendation and the physician has registered the patient on the state’s department of health website, patients can now request an appointment with a dispensary at MarijuanaDoctors.com to visit the brick-and-mortar location in-person.


Patients can also choose to schedule a telemedicine appointment for a first-time consultation with the dispensary, from a convenient location of their choosing.

A dispensary consultation gives patients the opportunity to:

  • Consult with a dispensary attendant
  • View the products
  • Discuss the menu options available


After the consultation, the dispensary can send the physician the recommended formulations and information to be uploaded to the patient’s profile on the state’s DOH website. For this purpose, the producer’s menu is seamlessly integrated with the required fields and soap notes that the physician needs to complete the patient’s registration process.

Once the doctor finishes updating the patient’s data, both the patient and producer will receive an automated email, confirming the date and time of delivery or in-store pick-up.

Utilizing Telehealth Technology

For many patients suffering from debilitating, chronic or terminal conditions, the symptoms of their ailments often make travel difficult and for those who are nearing end-of-life, near to impossible. Recognizing this dilemma that many of our patients face, MarijuanaDoctors.com has sought to give these individuals the ability to consult directly with a pharmacist at a dispensary, using telehealth technology.

During the telemedicine consultation, patients will have the opportunity to:

  • View the dispensary’s menu
  • Ask questions
  • Discuss the different options available to them
  • Choose the product that best meets their requirements


After the online consultation, dispensaries use their MarijuanaDoctors.com portal to send the patient’s recommending physician all the required formulations for the doctor to then update the patient’s data on the state department of health website so that it reflects all of the necessary information. At this time physicians may also stipulate how long the recommendation is to be valid.

For this purpose, the producer’s section has been created with all the necessary fields and soap notes, giving pharmacists the capacity to provide physicians with the appropriate information. Once the doctor has updated the DOH system, an email is automatically sent to both the patient and producer, with details on how to schedule a time for an in-store pickup.

We’ve also built in protections for producers serving patients represented by caregivers. Patients and caregivers are required to upload their medical marijuana card, paper work, and driver’s license to provide insurance for producers who are engaging with patients.

Once the patient has received counsel and placed their order, a date and time can be scheduled for at-home delivery. This means that patients who have limited-mobility and who otherwise would not have been able to get their cannabis medications can now access medical marijuana from the convenience of their home.

Furthermore, with the added functionality of being able to make deliveries, dispensaries are now viable options for patients who otherwise would not have chosen the producer due to the inconvenience or travel time of the location.
