To apply, visit your certified physician.

Patients will also need to bring valid ID, such as an Ohio driver’s license, an Ohio identification card issued by the Ohio BMV, or a U.S. passport. Not all physicians are certified; they must have an active Certificate to Recommend from the State Medical Board of Ohio. To find a physician with a CTR, here is a list.

Once a physician enters a patient into the registry, the patient will receive an email prompting them to log in to their profile in the patient registry. There, patients and caregivers can complete the application and pay the fee of $50 - $25 for caregivers. After receiving the card, patients and caregivers may purchase medical marijuana from an Ohio dispensary licensed by the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy.
