Cannabis, nature’s most potent plant, alleviates ailments and improves the health and lives of thousands of Ohioans living with severe and debilitating medical conditions. Despite being one of the first states to authorize the use of medical cannabis, accessibility remains exclusive to certain qualified patients with valid medical marijuana treatment ID cards.

Here’s a quick look at the Medical Marijuana Program application process to make it easier for Ohio residents to quickly and safely access the medical marijuana they need for better health and well-being.

Adults 18 years of age and older who meet all other program requirements are eligible for medical cannabis. Proof of age and residency is required for residents seeking medical marijuana privileges. Acceptable proofs include:

  • Valid state identification card
  • Valid driver’s license
  • Or three alternative forms of identification with the patient’s name and current address

Patients under 18 must have an approved caregiver who’s 21 or older and have the consent of a parent or legal guardian in order to become eligible for medical cannabis treatments.

Ohio minor cannabis patients must have an approved caregiver apply on their behalf and receive certification for medical cannabis from their physician.

Ohio residents may apply to the state’s medical marijuana patient program if they have a formal diagnosis of at least one of the following qualifying medical conditions.

  • AIDS
  • Arthritis
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cachexia
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Migraines
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Epilepsy or another seizure disorder
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Glaucoma
  • Hepatitis C
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Chronic, severe, or intractable pain
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • HIV+
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Muscle spasticity
  • Spinal cord disease or injury
  • Terminal illness
  • Tourette syndrome
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Ulcerative colitis

Applicants must see an Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program approved medical provider for certification that their qualifying ailment or symptoms could benefit from marijuana treatment.

Unlike many other states across the country, Ohio does not provide physical medical marijuana treatment cards. To complete the application process, patients must pay a $50 registration fee to the Ohio Board of Pharmacy.

Once processed, patients can view their cannabis treatment license online and print a copy to use at any state-licensed dispensary across the state. The renewal price is also $50.

Indigent and veteran patients and their caregivers may apply for the fee reduction program. The criteria to apply can be viewed here.

Details About the Medical Marijuana Process in Ohio

Ohio cares about its residents and allows them to medicate with cannabis as long as a qualified doctor certifies it as a suitable treatment in their care plans. However, residents must register with the State Board of Pharmacy as medical marijuana patients to receive an Ohio medical marijuana card.

To do so, they must first see a qualified doctor for a health evaluation and certification. Medical marijuana patients are allowed to have up to two caregivers in Ohio. 

After a recommending physician enters a patient or caregiver into the registry, the patient/caregiver will receive an email prompting them to complete their profile in the OMMP Registry and pay the fee. Patients who qualify for indigent or veteran status may be eligible for fee reductions.

What Is a Caregiver?

However, applicants must register with their patient(s) authorizing physician and the Ohio Board of Pharmacy to become caregivers. They must also pay the $25 caregiver annual registration fee.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Patient Limits and Products Available

The certifying physician determines patient marijuana treatment limits. Ohio medical cannabis patient allotments range up to a 90-day supply of medical marijuana products with up to three refills. 90-day allotments are divided into 45-day supply limits. Patients with new recommendations can purchase up to a 46-day supply for the first time. Refills are classified as 45-day windows.

Patients can purchase up to 9 ounces of marijuana products to meet their 90-day supply limit. Those with terminal illnesses can buy up to 10 ounces of medical cannabis products. They may also qualify for an additional 5-day supply per refill period, but prior authorization is necessary from their certifying physician. 

Caregivers are only authorized to purchase up to the aggregate limit for each registered patient under their care.

Locate Ohio Dispensaries

Approved caregivers and patients can visit any licensed medical marijuana retailer or dispensary across the state. However, they must show a copy of their marijuana registry identification card and valid, unexpired driver’s license or state identification card before entering and procuring medicinal marijuana products.

The following medical cannabis products are available for patients in the state of Ohio.

  • Marijuana flower
  • Vape
  • Oils
  • Concentrates
  • Oral sprays
  • Tinctures
  • THC-infused edibles
  • Lozenges
  • Patches
  • Lotions and topicals
  • High CBD products

Patients are not required to purchase a complete 45-day supply. They may purchase less at their discretion. However, unused days expire at the start of the new fill period.
