Every patient will need to prove Ohio residency for their application to be accepted by the state of OH.
Once approved, you'll receive an email from the state to complete your application. There is a $50 fee through the state of Ohio to receive your card.

Cannabis is illegal for recreational use in the U.S. state of Ohio, but ownership of up to 100 grams is decriminalized. Legislation was enacted in 2016 to allow a regulated system for the cultivation, sale, and possession of medical marijuana, but the system did not enter into force until 2017.
A law on medical marijuana, House Bill 523, adopted by Gov. John Kasich in 2016 and signed into law. The legislation permitted the use of medical cannabis in the form of edibles, oils, patches and vaporization by patients with 21 conditions, including cancer or chronic pain. Patients and their caregivers are permitted to have a supply of up to 90 days.
By Ohio law, medical marijuana can be used to treat 21 qualifying conditions:
All patients with medical marijuana and their caregivers will have to register with the State Pharmacy Board. The card itself is printed online, but it can be laminated at your convenience.
A registration of a patient or caregiver will be valid from the date of issue and will expire one year later, the last day of the month it was given. The patient’s registration expires after six months if the patient is diagnosed as terminally ill.
The State Medical Board of Ohio has now cleared 139 physicians to recommend treatment with marijuana, including doctors in Beavercreek Twp., Centerville, Dayton, Enon, Mason, Middletown, Springboro, Springfield, Washington Twp., West Chester Twp. and Yellow Springs.
There are multiple dispensaries now selling cannabis to patients all around Ohio. You can purchase THC and CBD based products at dispensaries in Ohio.
Becoming a caregiver is simple and easy, according to Ohio’s medical marijuana caregiver resource, requiring the following steps:
Unfortunately, due to the restrictions on how many patients a caregiver can care for, in many other states with active medical marijuana programs, marijuana patient-caregiver services are effectively banned in Ohio. Starting in November 2018, the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program will enable appeals to Ohio HB 523. At some point in the future, though that remains to be seen, we may see a legal challenge to the caregiver-patient limit.
Patients suffering from one of the 21 qualifying medical circumstances need only be advised by their medical marijuana physician to become a caregiver by their caregiver. The physician sends this suggestion to the Pharmacy Board of Ohio, contacting the patient and caregiver to collect their registration charges. Patients and caregivers have access to every medical cannabis dispensary in Ohio after this stage.
Patients and/or caregivers of a patient are allowed to have a 90-day supply of any permissible type of cannabis as described by:
Home cultivation is not permitted.
Ohio is a state with great opportunities for tourists looking for a cosmopolitan experience, a retreat in the small town, or a complete escape to nature. Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton offer many of the finest cultural attractions in the state, excellent shopping, and a wide range of stuff to do. Ohio is also home to such great outdoor recreation spots as Yellow Springs and Hocking Hills State Park, where you can go hiking, biking, riding and climbing. Here are Ohio’s best places to visit.
Cleveland provides visitors a broad range of attractions and deciding what to do first is your greatest issue. You can begin by visiting some of the city’s most exciting museums, such as the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art.
Baby boomers (and just about everyone else) will love the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and art lovers can find their way to Playhouse Square to enjoy an opera or ballet cultural evening or to Severance Hall to attend. The Cleveland Zoo, the interactive Children’s Museum and the Greater Cleveland Aquarium are family-oriented attractions. Sport is very common in Cleveland and at Progressive Field you can see the Cleveland Indians in action.
Cincinnati has something for everyone, irrespective of your entertainment taste. To get your bearings and decide which attractions to return to in your own time, you can join an American Legacy Tour. Art lovers will enjoy the Cincinnati Art Museum and the wonderful Taft Art Museum, where many illustrious artists, including Rembrandt and Goya, will be presented.
If you’re enjoying the performing arts, at the Cincinnati Music Hall you can get your symphony, pop, opera and ballet fill or plan your journey to coincide with the June Fringe Festival. You can bring the kids to the Duke Energy Children’s Museum, Coney Island Amusement Park, and to the Cincinnati Zoo.
A drive through Amish Country’s rolling landscape on a summer day is a great way to escape from the town and see a simpler working lifestyle. Amish buggies are following the twisting highways, and farmers are working in the areas. Small groups give possibilities to stop and pick up everything from household goods to cheeses produced locally, sweets, ice cream, manufacture, and much more. While Amish Country covers five counties, the best locations to begin are in Holmes County along the 160-mile Amish Country Byway.
