Did you know that Ohio was ranked 2nd in the United States for the highest number of drug overdose fatalities? In 2019, there were 46.3 drug overdose deaths per 100,000 residents in the state. The use and abuse of opioid medications by patients who are seeking symptom relief has contributed to an alarming growth in injury and fatalities.
In many clinical studies, THC has been found to be a more effective pain management aid for patients with chronic diseases. Medical cannabis can address other symptoms as well, including nausea, insomnia, muscle spasms, and other painful and debilitating conditions. Medical cannabis can, for some patients, provide relief without the high-risk side effects associated with opioids and NSAID prescription drugs.
Duber Medical is a resource for Ohio patients who want to participate in the medical marijuana program and explore the therapeutic use of THC and medical cannabis for pain and symptom relief. We provide online telemedicine health evaluations and assist patients by helping with state registration in the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP).
How Many Patients Are Registered in the Ohio Medical Marijuana Program?
The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP) released a report in May 2020, that shared the number of patients who are currently registered for medical marijuana use. Concerns over the long-term impact of opioids and prescription pain medications for patients with chronic diseases or pain symptoms have led many residents in Ohio to try medical cannabis as an alternative for pain or symptoms relief.
In May of 2020, the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP) reported:

|Monday:||8:00 AM - 8:00 PM|
|Tuesday:||8:00 AM - 8:00 PM|
|Wednesday:||8:00 AM - 8:00 PM|
|Thursday:||8:00 AM - 8:00 PM|

How Much Medical Marijuana Can You Purchase in Ohio?
The medical cannabis program in Ohio is structured to maintain doctor supervision and advice for the patient. The recommending physician at Duber Medical can approve a 90-day supply of medical cannabis for a patient, with three “prescription” refills after that, for a total of one year of access to therapeutic cannabis products through licensed dispensaries.
After the three refills have been completed (one year supply) the patient is required to complete another medical evaluation to renew their Ohio medical marijuana card. Because the health conditions for patients with chronic diseases and pain symptoms can change over time, an annual recertification telemedicine health evaluation will be required to renew your MMJ card.
If a patient registered with the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP) does not renew their medical marijuana card, the patient will not be legally permitted to purchase medical cannabis from a licensed dispensary. Non-cardholders in Ohio may not possess cannabis and do not have legal protection to do so if the card expires.
Contact our team at Duber Medical to schedule your health evaluation. You can receive your card within one hour after your appointment. If you do not qualify, your consultation fee is refunded (minus a small processing fee).
