California Medical Marijuana Telemedicine Laws

Rules governing telemedicine in California for prescribing medical marijuana are changing. Patients interested in getting a medical marijuana evaluation conducted in the privacy of their own home, or location of their choosing, can access it via a secure real-time, live-video connection here: https://www.marijuanadoctors.com/medical-marijuana-doctors/medical-marijuana-telemedicine-portal/

The Medical Board of California says that telehealth is “a tool in medical practice, not a separate form of medicine.” It typically involves the use of a video chatting software.

As long as physicians have a valid, current California license to practice marijuana medicine, they may live anywhere — they do not need to reside in California. They should offer the same standard of care via telemedicine as they would offer during an in-person appointment.
