DUBER MEDICAL EXPANDS INTO KENTUCKY!
Duber Medical is now poised to help patients in Kentucky seeking their medical marijuana card. Kentuckians now have access to Duber Medical’s growing team of certified medical professionals via safe and secure telemedicine consultations. Patients can access Duber Medical clinicians 15 hours a day, every day from 8 am to 8 pm Eastern Standard Time. Our expansion to Kentucky will benefit those patients by giving them access to compassionate and caring physicians who will walk them through the process of acquiring their medical marijuana card.
Duber Medical’s New Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Gabrielle F. Morris, has compiled an excellent team of diverse and compassionate physicians and clinicians which span several medical specialties and represent decades of experience. Patients with qualifying medical conditions in Kentucky can now benefit from our patient-centric and personalized approach to patient care. Unlike other medical marijuana card certification businesses, we are a physician-owned company who advocates for its patients and caregivers, and believes that patients with qualifying medical conditions deserve access to medical marijuana to alleviate the symptoms of their condition or disease process.
ACCESS FOR KENTUCKY PATIENTS
Governor Andy Beshear appointed a Medical Cannabis Advisory Committee to gauge support for medical cannabis in the state of Kentucky. Their survey revealed that 98.64% of respondents were in favor of legalizing medical cannabis in the state of Kentucky. In response to Kentucky’s overwhelming support for the use of medical marijuana, and the recommendation of the Kentucky Medical Cannabis Advisory Committee, Governor Beshear issued Executive Order 2022-798 on November 15, 2022. The order allows Kentucky residents with qualifying medical conditions access to medical marijuana.
The qualifying medical conditions in the state of Kentucky are as follows:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Arthritis (Severe)
- Cachexia (Wasting Syndrome)
- Chronic, Severe or Intractable Pain
- Crohn’s Disease
- Huntington’s Disease
- Hepatitis C
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Sickle Cell Anemia
- Spinal Cord Disease, or Injury
- Terminal Illness
Executive Order 2022-798 requires that individuals seeking a medical marijuana card be seen by a licensed clinician who certifies that one of the qualifying medical conditions have been met, and that marijuana is appropriate medicine to treat the symptoms of their disease process or condition. Duber Medical’s expansion into Kentucky will allow us to meet the needs of Kentucky patients and the requirements of Executive Order 2022-798.
