Grassy Ohio is a trusted source for patients seeking medical marijuana treatment in Ohio. We take pride in linking patients with a network of reputable, licensed, and certified physicians only. The state’s Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP) will be fully operational on September 8th, and it’s important for patients to know what to expect while seeking a medical recommendation.
Compassionate Cleveland are doctors committed to providing impeccable clinical care and eliminating the stigma associated with medical marijuana. Patients will be seen by a licensed physician in full compliance with Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program. Currently, Compassionate Cleveland is Ohio’s premier mental health and Medical Marijuana Clinic. They take a holistic approach to physical and mental health and will work with people individually to meet their personal needs and health goals.
The MMCP has released a list of medical conditions that will authorize Ohio patients to use medical marijuana. To be considered for the program, the patient must be diagnosed with one of the following conditions:
-AIDS/HIV -Alzheimer’s Disease -ALS -Cancer -Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy -Crohn’s disease -Epilepsy or another seizure disorder -Fibromyalgia -Glaucoma -Hepatitis C -Inflammatory Bowel Disease -Multiple Sclerosis -Pain that is either Chronic and severe or Intractable -Parkinson’s disease -Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) -Sickle Cell anemia -Spinal cord disease or injury -Tourette’s Syndrome -Traumatic Brain injury -Ulcerative Colitis
More diseases or medical conditions may be added to the existing list, at the discretion of the Ohio Medical Board.
If you’re an Ohio patient seeking medical marijuana treatment, you’re first step will be getting a diagnosis for one of the qualifying conditions and a recommendation from a licensed physician. Your next step will be to have a certified marijuana doctor apply to the State Board of Pharmacy for Registration on your behalf. This application must be submitted and considered complete by the board within ninety days of a doctor’s recommendation to be considered for the MMCP. Patient registration cards will be valid for one calendar year from the date of issuance. Patients will receive notification 45 calendar days prior to expiration date.
Once you have received your patient registration card, you are then authorized to purchase, possess, and use medical marijuana. Cannabis oil, edibles, patches, plant materials and tinctures are the permitted forms of medical marijuana available in Ohio. While Ohio law still prohibits smoking medical marijuana, patients will be allowed to vaporize marijuana, marijuana oils and concentrates. The law also states that patients or guardians can only use an affirmative defense if they have a recommendation from an Ohio marijuana doctor.
While the legal amount of medical cannabis for a patient to possess is still unclear, the law does state that patients will be not be permitted to possess more than a three month supply at any time.
