Ohio Medical Marijuanas Certification Process

The certification process in Ohio is similar to many other medical states. Patients will need to obtain a recommendation from a licensed medical marijuana doctor before being able to access their card online.

  • 1
    Schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor.
  • 2
    Speak with the doctor to find out if you qualify.
  • 3
    Obtain an online recommendation from the doctor.
  • 4
    Access your electronic medical marijuana ID card and start purchasing at dispensaries!

The majority of doctors in the state are not comfortable with certifying patients for the Ohio medical marijuana program because marijuana remains illegal on a federal level. In addition, a doctor must be registered with the state in order to certify patients for the program.

For these reasons it can sometimes be difficult for patients to find a doctor who will certify them. We currently offer online Telemedicine visits that allow you to be seen from the comfort and security of home, making the search for a doctor easy for you. All of our doctors are registered with the state and can legally certify you for the program. If you think that you have one of the qualifying medical conditions and have at least one type of proof, then you will most likely qualify. Our doctor can evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and issue your recommendation.

Once you have the doctor's recommendation on file, you will receive an email from the state that will allow you to complete your registration and access the electronic copy of your medical marijuana ID card. You can then immediately begin accessing dispensaries and purchasing medical marijuana products. If you're having trouble completing your registration or accessing your card, we recommend calling the state directly for support at 1-833-464-6627.

Once you've been entered, you'll receive an email with a link that will allow you to log into your account, complete your application, and pay the fee. The annual registration cost is $50 for patients and $25 for caregivers.

Once your registration is complete and the fee has been paid, you'll be able to access the electronic copy of your medical marijuana ID card immediately from your online account. You can then use the card to purchase medical marijuana products from any state-licensed dispensary.

No. Insurance companies do not cover any costs associated with medical marijuana due to conflicts with federal law.

Yes. With Ohio being an at-will state and there not currently being any legislation in place that protects medical marijuana patients in the workplace, medical cardholders can still be administered drug screenings and receive disciplinary action regarding the results of drug screenings.

Ohio does not have any restrictions regarding patients on probation or parole, however, you must get permission from your probation or parole officer first before pursuing a medical marijuana card.

As a legal medical marijuana patient, you are protected. Patients do not have to disclose that they possess medical marijuana and do not have to consent to a search.
