    It's hard for me to really recommend Elevate Holistics because I have had difficulty with My Registration and maneuvering My Way Through The Website. I have been able to communicate with EV's Staff so hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday I will look forward to completing My Registration.

How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Ohio

Beginning 9/17, telemedicine in Ohio is no longer legal. Unfortunately, this means our current OH services cannot run past that date. We apologize to all of our OH patients.

Is medical marijuana legal in Ohio? Marijuana was legalized for medical use in Ohio in 2016, and there are dispensaries throughout the state that offer a variety of cannabis products. In order to use medical marijuana in Ohio, you’ll need to have a legal medical card. Here’s how to apply for medical marijuana in Ohio, as well as important local medical marijuana laws you should know about.

How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card In Ohio

In order to get a medical marijuana card in Ohio, you’ll need to go through a short application process and evaluation from a medical marijuana doctor. The process is fairly simple, and once you receive your card, you’ll be able to purchase marijuana from approved dispensaries. Here’s how to get medical marijuana in Ohio.

Steps For Getting Your Medical Card

The first step to get your medical card is to visit one of the many doctors who prescribe medical marijuana in Ohio. One of the easiest and most convenient ways to do this is to use an approved telehealth provider. Elevate Holistics offers affordable and secure consultations with board-certified Ohio medical marijuana doctors.

During this visit, you’ll need to provide proof of Ohio residency using a government-issued ID. This can be a driver’s license, a state ID, or US passport with a current address. During this appointment, your doctor will confirm that you have one of the Ohio medical marijuana qualifying conditions. They can also answer any questions that you have about medical marijuana.

After your appointment, your doctor will start your registration in Ohio’s Patient and Caregiver Registry. Afterwards, you’ll receive an email with an activation link, which will take you to the registry. This link is only valid for 90 days, so it’s important to complete the registration before then. You’ll need to complete a short application form online and choose a password, which you will need to log back into your profile later on. You’ll also need to pay your $50 registration fee at this point.

The state registry will then process your application. Once you’re approved, you’ll be able to print out your medical marijuana card. You can use this medical marijuana card along with your government-issued ID to purchase cannabis products from your local dispensary.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions

In order to get a medical card, you’ll need to meet the Ohio medical marijuana requirements. There are a number of qualifying conditions for a medical marijuana card in Ohio. These include both chronic physical and mental health conditions that require ongoing treatment. The list of qualifying conditions in Ohio is long, but it includes cancer, epilepsy, irritable bowel syndrome, HIV/AIDS, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and much more. If you’re unsure of whether or not you qualify for a medical marijuana card in Ohio, it’s worth consulting with a doctor to learn more – you might be surprised by just how many Ohio medical marijuana conditions exist.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Card Cost

Many people wonder, how much does medical marijuana cost in Ohio? Before you start shopping for cannabis products, you’ll need to pay a fee to get your medical card. The fee for most people to get their medical marijuana card in Ohio 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, we offer affordable consultations that start at $75.

How Long Does It Take To Get A Card In Ohio?

The process of getting a medical marijuana card in Ohio typically takes less than a month. Your initial consultation with your doctor will take less than an hour. Once you’ve gotten your email link to register, you’ll be able to complete the application in roughly 30 minutes or less. Then you’ll need to wait for the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy to approve it, which can take anywhere from 72 hours to two weeks. The process can vary depending on your specific circumstances.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Laws

It’s important to familiarize yourself with the Ohio medical marijuana rules once you get your card. Cannabis is not yet legal for recreational purposes yet in Ohio, so there are still many rules and regulations that 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.

Possession Limits In Ohio

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

Ohio Cultivation Laws

Right now, Ohio does not allow you to cultivate your own marijuana. If you are caught growing your own marijuana, you will be fined, and you could also serve jail time if you’re growing marijuana in bulk.

History Of Medical Marijuana In Ohio

Ohio was actually one of the first states to decriminalize small amounts of cannabis, which they did in 1975. This prompted many people to wonder – when will medical marijuana be available in Ohio? A ballot measure in 2015 proposed complete legalization of marijuana, but it failed to pass. In 2016, the governor finally signed the Ohio medical marijuana bill that legalized medical marijuana.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Bill 2016

The Ohio medical marijuana law in 2016 set up provisions for a cannabis distribution system, although the first sales of medical marijuana in Ohio did not occur until 2019. The state needed time to set up growing facilities, a licensing system, and retail dispensaries. During this time, the Ohio state government also repealed a requirement from the early 1990s that anyone caught with cannabis lose their license for up to six months.

How To Register As A Medical Marijuana Caregiver In 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 who are disabled 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 – the patient will need to get certified by a doctor, and then the caregiver will receive a link to sign up and complete the application. Caregivers need to pay a $25 annual fee for their cards. In Ohio, you can only serve as a caregiver for up to two people at a time. You can only purchase cannabis for the designated patient and cannot redistribute it.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Doctors

It’s important to note that not every doctor in Ohio can legally approve you for a medical card. The doctor must be approved through the Ohio medical marijuana registry in order to do so. At Elevate Holistics, we provide secure telehealth consultations with licensed medical marijuana doctors. Not only can these doctors approve you for a medical card if you have a qualifying condition, they can also answer any questions you may have about medical marijuana.

Medical Marijuana Dispensaries In Ohio

If you’re wondering where to buy medical marijuana in Ohio, you’ll have plenty of options. There are dozens of Ohio medical marijuana dispensaries located in major cities and towns across the state. You’ll need to show your medical card as well as your government-issued ID in order to enter the dispensary. Once inside, you’ll be able to shop for many popular cannabis products.

Elevate Holistics offers a safe and convenient way to get your medical marijuana card in Ohio. Each telehealth session is HIPAA compliant, and our knowledgeable doctors will walk you through the sign-up process and answer any questions you have along the way.

  • How do I register with the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP) and get a patient medical card?

    First you must visit a physician with a certificate to recommend (CTR).

Medical Cannabis Certification for Ohio

Why Medical Marijuana Doctors are Necessary.

The vast majority of doctors don’t have a great understanding of cannabinoids due to a woefully archaic medical schooling system. In fact, most medical schools don’t even offer classes on the endocannabinoid system! This is the system in the body that interacts with THC, CBD, and other phytocannabinoids in cannabis. Crazy, right? While this is changing, the majority of doctors in America can’t truly point people in the right direction when it comes to cannabis as a medicine. This is where Elevate Holistics comes in by offering you a full staff of healthcare professionals that can take you from CBD to THC, to pharmaceutical interactions, and treatment plans. Make sure to ask your physician and Elevate staff anything on your mind so we can get you the resources you need to Elevate your health naturally.
