How to Renew Your Card

You will need to renew your medical marijuana card every year in Ohio.
Thankfully, the process is easy: in fact, it’s the same process you went through to register! However, instead of making a new account, you can just log into your Ohio MMJ Registry account and follow the steps for renewal. 
You will have to see a doctor again and get reapproved, and then submit your application to the state while paying the $50 fee.  
Having an Ohio marijuana card ensures you comply with the law. If you carry amounts within the allowed limit and encounter a law enforcement officer, you can present your card as proof of your active license with the Ohio Medical Marijuana Registry.
Your card signifies your legal right to possess, transport, and use marijuana within Ohio!


Patients who need medical marijuana but are unable to visit dispensaries to get it themselves can work with a caregiver to do so. 

This includes people with disabilities and people who are under the age of 18. Medical marijuana caregivers in Ohio must be over the age of 21 and be able to prove legal residency. 

The process of becoming an Ohio medical marijuana caregiver is fairly straightforward – once the patient is certified by a doctor, the caregiver will receive a link to sign up and complete the application. 

Caregivers need to pay a $25 annual fee for their card. In Ohio, you can only serve as a caregiver for up to three people at a time. 

You can only purchase cannabis for the designated patient and cannot redistribute it.


Although the law does not allow Ohio dispensaries to accept MMJ cards from out-of-state patients, one of the benefits of getting a medical marijuana card in Ohio is that you might be able to use it in other states.

Ohio medical marijuana cards can be used in Washington D.C. and possibly in Michigan dispensaries. Some patients have also reported success using their Ohio cards in Nevada.

Yes, Ohio voted to legalize medical marijuana back in 2016, but the program didn’t make its first sales until 2019. 

The medical marijuana program in Ohio is very unique in that it prohibits smoking cannabis products, although it does allow users with a medical marijuana card to use vaporizers as well as edibles and other forms of marijuana.

Recreational marijuana is not currently legal in Ohio.

What are the reasons to get a medical card in Ohio?

If you are struggling with a chronic medical condition, medical marijuana can help you manage it. 

There is scientific evidence that medical marijuana can help with things like pain, nausea, and more. In particular, it is a good alternative to other prescription painkillers because it does not come with as harsh of side effects.

Getting your medical marijuana card will allow you to purchase the cannabis products you need legally. 

Since marijuana is still illegal for recreational use in Ohio, you can face legal penalties if you are caught using it or distributing it without the proper qualifications. Having a medical card will give you the peace of mind you need to use marijuana safely. 

Additionally, having a medical card streamlines the distribution process, because you can go directly to your local dispensary. 

They will have a selection of products to choose from and will be able to help you find the one that is best for your needs.

What do Ohio’s medical marijuana laws look like?

It’s important to familiarize yourself with the Ohio medical marijuana laws once you get your card. 

Recreational cannabis is not legal in Ohio, so there are many rules you’ll need to follow to avoid getting fined. 

In order to get a medical marijuana card for yourself in Ohio, you’ll need to be at least 18 years of age and be able to prove Ohio residency. Those with a medical card can only purchase cannabis for themselves or for a designated patient and cannot redistribute it to others.

How much does a medical marijuana card cost in Ohio?

The fee to register with the state and receive your Ohio medical card is $50. 

You’ll need to pay this fee annually to renew your card. If you’re a caregiver, you’ll only need to pay $25 annually to get a medical card for the patient. Some people may qualify for reduced fees, including veterans and people who need additional financial support.

You will also need to pay a fee to consult with a medical marijuana doctor and get your approval. This fee will vary depending on which doctor you consult with. It’s important to note that these fees are typically not covered by insurance. 

At Elevate Holistics, you can get your Ohio medical marijuana card for $130, or renew it for $80.

How much MMJ can you possess in Ohio?

Ohio’s possession laws for people with medical marijuana cards are slightly unusual because they vary slightly depending on your condition

These limits are set by the Ohio medical marijuana control program. Your medical marijuana doctor will determine what possession tier you are in depending on the severity of your medical condition. 

Those in tier I can possess up to eight ounces of approved THC products, but the percentage of THC should be less than 23 percent. If you’re in tier II, you can only possess 5.3 ounces of THC products, but the potency of THC can be between 23 and 35 percent.

For those who don’t have a medical marijuana card, possession of cannabis has been decriminalized in Ohio. This means that possession of less than 100 grams of marijuana will give you a $150 fine, but you won’t serve jail time and it won’t go on your criminal record.
