Get Approved For An Ohio Marijuana Card From Home | Telemedicine For Medical Marijuana
Even before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of virtual doctor’s appointments, or telehealth, across Ohio and the United States was becoming more popular. However, out as a result of country-wide lockdowns and social distancing,, telehealth has expanded in order to reduce risks of COVID-19 transmission to patients and healthcare workers alike.
House Bill (HB) 122 – more commonly known as the Telemedicine Expansion Act – makes Ohio’s telehealth expansion permanent. HB 122 was passed unanimously by both the Ohio House and Senate and was signed into law on Dec. 22, 2021, by Governor DeWine.

Telemedicine For Medical Marijuana in Ohio – How It Works
Telemedicine allows patients with one of the state-approved qualifying conditions to get approved by a certified doctor through video conference. At DocMJ, we use a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing software that is simple to understand and easy to use for patients.
Here’s how it works. After booking your appointment, either online or by calling us at (877) 899-3626, a new patient intake form will be sent to your email address. Similar to most new patient intake forms, you’ll have an opportunity to disclose your medical records and any other information the physician will need prior to issuing a medical marijuana recommendation. Once the intake form is completed, your medical records have been received and we have copies of your state-issued ID, you’ll be all ready to go for your telemedicine appointment.
Prior to your appointment, you will receive a link through email that takes you to your telemedicine appointment. This link can be accessed on a computer, phone, or tablet. Once it is time for your appointment, the video conference with the physician will begin. They will discuss the pros and cons of medical marijuana and confirm that you have a qualifying condition. With the doctor’s approval, you will be registered with the state board of pharmacy to be able to apply for your Ohio Medical Marijuana Card and soon be able to legally purchase from a medical marijuana dispensary.
