What You Need To Know About Medical Marijuana Doctors In Austin
Medical marijuana is now legal in Texas, allowing individuals with qualifying medical or psychological conditions to obtain a prescription, the equivalent of an MMJ card in other states.
In Austin and around the state, medical marijuana doctors provide qualifying patients with a medical marijuana prescription, also known as a low-THC prescription.
The benefit of not having a medical marijuana card eliminates the need for patients to carry the card with them to purchase at a dispensary. Instead, people in Austin and throughout the state can call the dispensary and have the medical marijuana available for pick up or delivery. Additionally, the MMJ card renewal process is much easier as the medical marijuana doctor simply writes a new prescription when required.
Obtaining the Prescription
If patients search for how to get a medical card or how to get a weed card in Austin, they will see the process is the same as other states providing patients with a card. Patients complete a pre-qualification online questionnaire on the DocMJ website that identifies the qualifying medical or psychological condition.
Then, the patient books an appointment time, completes the intake forms, and meets with our MMJ doctor online or by phone. The initial MMJ evaluation takes approximately 15 minutes. After this, the medical marijuana doctor enters the necessary prescription into the state compassionate use registry, allowing the patient to fill the prescription. If the patient does not qualify for medical marijuana use during the MMJ evaluation, DocMJ refunds 100% of the evaluation cost.
