Once AbacaRx goes live, you will be able to create your own personalized AbacaRx account that will store all your personal and medical information. This information will be stored on our highly encrypted servers for your doctor to use during your consultations. No more filling out endless paperwork at the Doctor's office.
AbacaRx will connect you with Board-Certified Physicians that have been educated on the therapeutic aspects of medical marijuana and are open to making recommendations. You will be able to easily connect with your doctor using the AbacaRx App and your computer, iOS or Android tablet or smart phone.
After your AbacaRx Doctor Consultation is complete, your physician will use all the information he or she learns during your consultation to make a diagnosis if possible. This will then allow them to be in the position to recommend medical marijuana if it is right for you.
In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume… Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man…– Francis Young, DEA Administrative Law Judge – 1988

AbacaRx Doctor Consultations
In our experience a 15 minute doctor consultation is enough time for the doctor to understand and assess your situation and recommend the next steps. Each doctor is board-certified and understands medical marijuana and can give you the information that you need to know. The doctor will assess your medical condition and decide whether or not to recommend medical marijuana as a treatment for you.
Yes, if medically appropriate. The doctor will use all the information he or she learns during your consultation and make a diagnosis if possible. If your physician thinks you need further examination (e.g. tests, an in-person physical exam), your doctor will schedule an in-office visit.
Yes, if medically appropriate and allowable in your State. Recommendations are at the doctor’s discretion and a consultation does not guarantee a recommendation.
All physicians on AbacaRx are well educated and licensed in your state. They are all equally qualified to see you and give you a medical assessment.
When AbacaRx goes live, we will not accept medical insurance initially, but we hope to offer this option in the future.
