What Will You Find in Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Ohio?
Ohio dispensaries carry cannabis flowers, edibles, tinctures, capsules, vape oils, marijuana concentrates, and other common formulations. Cannabis flowers sold in Ohio fall into one of two classes of potency:
- Tier 1: Plant material with 23% THC or less

How Much Does Medical Marijuana Cost in Ohio?
Ohio medical marijuana prices tend to be slightly above the national average. This is because the program is still fairly new and because most cannabis must be grown in costly indoor facilities. Still, the average price of marijuana has fallen over the past couple of years, and it’s becoming easier to find flower products for less than $15 per gram.

How to Gain Access to Ohio Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
To become a patient, you’ll need to:

When you become a registered patient, you don’t just gain access to every dispensary in the state. You also protect yourself from criminal charges and prosecution in the event that you’re stopped by law enforcement (so long as you’re carrying your medicine in accordance with state law).
Your medical marijuana card must be renewed annually.
