Compassionate Marijuana Doctors Serving Cincinnati Ohio

DocMJ Cares for Our Patients

Getting Started

DocMJ makes getting a recommendation for medical marijuana from a compassionate and qualified physician easy and affordable. All DocMJ physicians, in addition to being licensed doctors, have an active Certificate to Recommend (CTR) from the State Medical Board of Ohio and are authorized to permit qualified patients to receive medical marijuana from an approved dispensary. Making an appointment in Cincinnati is easy and can be done conveniently with telemedicine. Whether you live in Mount Adams, Pendleton, Queensgate, The Banks or any other areas of the city, a patient can make an appointment at a time that fits their schedule. Based on a private meeting with the medical marijuana certified physician, patients receive their recommendation for medical marijuana, if they qualify. Patients will be entered into the registry and, in some cases, can purchase medical marijuana the same day.

The Telemedicine Appointment

Patients are required to submit the requested medical records and documentation for the medical marijuana doctor to review in advance of their appointment.
Once the appointment has been completed, your doctor enters your information into the registry. You will then receive an email with a link allowing you to make a payment to the registry and receive a temporary card. The MMJ card will arrive by mail in 10-14 business days.

DocMJ makes it so easy to renew my yearly license. I was able to reach out with a question I had and actually was able to talk to a person, she was able to resend the email links tell me before the appointment with no conflict. Dr. Clyde Watson was excellent during my teleconference! Look forward to seeing him again next year for my annual renewal. Five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
