ClubM, which provides monthly by-subscription home delivery of curated cannabis products, has partnered with HelloMD, which enables Californians 18 and over to obtain their medical cannabis cards online, in the privacy of their own homes. The partnership provides an end-to-end solution that makes life easier for new and long-time cannabis patients.
“You’ve heard about the farm-to-table movement, right? This is about the plant-to-medicine-cabinet movement,” said ClubM CEO Chris Husong. “We are very pleased about this new partnership, and today was the ideal day to announce it. We are working with HelloMD to expand the choices for patients, and to serve notice, the way 4/20 has, that the medical cannabis movement is here for good.”
Two powerful trends. Two companies coming together.
"This new partnership reflects the convergence of two growing trends," said Husong. At a time when many people are being more careful about what they’re putting into their bodies, scientists are making daily advancements in our understanding of how the endocannabinoid system in our bodies makes use of cannabis.
“The movement from laboratory-produced pharmaceuticals to plant-based medicine is a return to the roots of people-centered medicine,” said Husong. “It’s no accident that cannabis has been relied upon as a trusted medicine for thousands of years, in cultures all over the world. We are just modernizing the process of procurement for patients — from the grow, to their doorstep.”
Said Mark Hadfield, CEO of HelloMD: "Every day, we see hundreds of patients seeking alternatives to toxic pharmaceuticals enter the world of cannabis. Many of them have little experience with using cannabis — some have no experience whatsoever. These people face a steep learning curve on the way to understanding the many types of cannabis products available. It can be an overwhelming experience.”
"The curated premium experience that ClubM offers to its membership introduces a new patient to a variety of the highest-quality product with utmost discretion and convenience," said Hatfield.
“Those values are very much in line with ours, and it is for that reason that we are excited about this partnership,” he said. “Patients will be able to experience a discreet physician consultation, receive a medicinal cannabis recommendation and then, via ClubM, have premium product delivered monthly — all without having to leave their home. What’s not to like about that?”
Vape, flower, concentrates and edibles, delivered monthly
Any Californian with a medical cannabis ID card (easily secured through HelloMD) can join ClubM at no charge, and then opt for monthly delivery of the MBox, a curated selection of premium cannabis, including vapes, flowers, concentrates and edibles, and limited-edition accessories.
“We listen closely to our customers across the state, and give them what they want — along with some pleasant surprises,” said Husong. “We’re growing fast, and we look forward to expanding into other markets beyond California when the time comes.”
