LOS ANGELES and DENVER, Dec. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dixie Brands, Inc. (Dixie), a leader in emerging cannabinoid extraction and wellness platforms has partnered with California's leading online doctor recommendation and cannabis delivery providers, HelloMD and SpeedWeed, to offer two free Dixie LIFTED products following the completion of online recommendation renewal and medicine purchases through SpeedWeed.

SpeedWeed, California's largest, most experienced and fastest growing medical marijuana delivery service recently announced a strategic partnership with HelloMD, a service that connects members to doctors who can authorize their recommendation and allow them to get their legal marijuana prescription via online video consultations.

The partnership, a first-of-its-kind, is focused on convenience and patient privacy. By leveraging technology, the HelloMD telehealth platform has been seamlessly integrated into SpeedWeed's proprietary software. Patients who visit SpeedWeed.com can, via HelloMD, consult immediately with a doctor and, if qualified, receive or renew their medical marijuana recommendation online without ever leaving their home.

Dixie has been available in California since July, 2015 and this relationship will allow new patients, as well as returning patients, an opportunity to try products from one of the leaders in edibles, topicals and tinctures. Each Dixie product is triple lab tested for accurate dosing and quality assurance. Dixie's wide range of products also allows new patients to find the Dixie product, and dosage, that is right for them.
