AUSTIN MARIJUANA is a medical service that is owned and operated by Texas licensed healthcare professionals. Our healthcare professionals are also licensed to practice medicine in many states, such as Colorado and Hawaii, where herbal medicine is legal for state registered domiciled residents.
AUSTIN MARIJUANA provides internet-based, written and telephone herbal medical consultations to patients. Our consultations are "fee for service". AUSTIN MARIJUANA will need to obtain a release from you to receive your current medical records in compliance with federal HIPAA rules and regulations. You should personally ask your healthcare provider to send your medical records to us along with the required medical release form we will provide to you. If you have not seen a medical provider within the last 12 months, you need to schedule an appointment and update your medical conditions and records.
We will review your medical records, send you a comprehensive questionnaire that you must truthfully complete, then discuss with you the merits, benefits or risks of you personally following a scientifically validated herbal medicine remedy as part of a comprehensive, documented medical appraisal and treatment plan. We strive to offer the standard of care you would expect with any other medical condition that you may have. The standard of care for herbal medicine treatment plans is really no different, from a medical perspective, than for any other medical condition.
You will also need to read, acknowledge and sign an INFORMED CONSENT agreement regarding all matters discussed with you. Scientifically validated herbal medicine remedies do not exist for all medical conditions. We will not correspond, communicate or interact with patients and others who contact AUSTIN MARIJUANA from any location where herbal medicine is not currently allowed. We do not aid and abet anyone to use herbal medicine and we do not sell herbal medicine products. We maintain complete impartialty and 100% dissociation with other aspects of the herbal medicine industry. However, we can provide you with a list of resources through which you can learn more about herbal medicine.
We are consultants, not your primary care physician or healthcare provider. Medical marijuana is not currently allowed in Texas except cannabidiol oil in selected patients with intractable epilepsy (legislation signed by Governor Abbott June 1, 2015). Patients who want to try medical marijuana need to relocate and become a resident of a state where medical marijuana is currently allowed. You should see your primary care physician at least annually to assess your medical condition(s), current treatment plans, medications and your medical records. We also encourage all patients to have their medical records continuously updated "online" through one of the many national providers. Our professional consultations are "evidence based" and have been scientifically validated. Many patients have co-existing medical conditions that preclude herbal medicine use. Examples of medical conditions where herbal medicine may not be recommended include: coronary artery disease, psychotic disorders, anxiety disorders, paranoia, allergy to herbs, and dementia (Alzheimer's disease).
