There is no difference at all between the cannabis recommendation that is issued by HelloMD between 2017 and 2018. Any recommendation that you received in 2017 is valid for one year from date of issue. In other words if you received a recommendation on May 1, 2017 it is valid until May 1, 2018. You do not need to obtain a new recommendation to purchase cannabis. The requirements to obtain the recommendations has not changed either if you wish to obtain a new one or yours is going to expire. You must physically be in California at the time of your evaluation by one of our physicians.
