As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the State Medical Board of Ohio is allowing Telemedicine for medical marijuana initial and yearly follow-up exams. This means Ohio residents can be evaluated for a medical marijuana recommendation in-person or from home using a computer, tablet, or smartphone. To learn more about using Telemedicine for medical marijuana check out our blog Ohio Allows Telemedicine For Medical Marijuana During Coronavirus 2020.
After scheduling your in-person or Telemedicine exam, our office will send you an appointment confirmation email as well as an email containing a set of electronic intake forms. Please make sure your forms are completed at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. For questions or concerns regarding your forms, please contact us at (877) 899.3626.
You will be required to upload a copy of your most recent medical records to your intake forms. If you do not have your records on hand and are unable to obtain them, please let our office know and our records department will be more than happy to request them for you. You will also need to upload a copy of your Ohio drivers license or State ID card to prove residency.
Receive Approval & Visit a Dispensary
During your appointment, your physician will review your medical records and intake forms to determine if you qualify for a recommendation. If you are approved he or she will enter you into the OHMM Registry. After your information is entered, you will need to set up an account and pay the $50 state-required fee for your Ohio medical marijuana card. Once your payment is processed (typically 5 minutes or less) you will receive an email with your digital Ohio medical marijuana card. This digital card can be used immediately to purchase products from any licensed medical marijuana dispensary in Ohio. Most patients who receive a recommendation are able to go straight to the dispensary after leaving their appointment.
