Capitol Pharmacy Adds Saturday Pickup Hours And More Delivery Areas

Step 1: Visit the Capitol Wellness Solutions website, capitolpharmacy.com.

Step 2: Choose a qualified physician from the online list. As of Aug. 1, 2020, any Louisiana licensed medical doctor in good standing with the Louisiana Board of Medical Examiners may recommend medical cannabis to their patients.

Step 3: Schedule a 10-minute telehealth appointment to qualify as a patient. The providers listed online by Capitol Wellness Solutions offer telemedicine visits for your convenience. Simply select the “Get Started” tab under your chosen medical professional and fill out the requested information to schedule a quick consultation.

Step 4: Visit Capitol Wellness Solutions in-person or online to choose the products that are right for you. There is no need to pick up a recommendation from the doctor or bring it with you to the dispensary. Your recommendation will be faxed or e-scribed by the prescriber directly to Capitol Wellness Solutions, and you will receive a text from the dispensary stating that they have received it.

Once your doctor sends your recommendation to the dispensary, you gain access to Capitol Wellness Solutions’ online ordering system where you can select products, pay online and schedule pickup or delivery.

The online store contains information on each product including the effects and what symptoms the product is known to alleviate. Ordering online is the quickest and easiest way to place your order. If you are not comfortable ordering online and would like to speak with a pharmacist, you can stop into the pharmacy between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday to speak to a pharmacist.

For patients who place their order, pay online and schedule their pick-up time, they can be in and out of the dispensary within one minute. For patients who complete everything online other than payment, they can be in and out of the dispensary within two minutes. The dispensary’s new location includes 12 checkout stations to lessen wait times.

Capitol Wellness Solutions also offers free delivery to most areas, including East Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes for even more convenient service.

Coming soon in Spring of 2024 is a second satellite location of Capitol Wellness Solutions. It will be located on O’Neal Lane, right off Interstate 12. For more information, visit capitolpharmacy.com or call 225.800.9420.
