HOW TO GET YOUR OHIO MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD
SCHEDULE A TELEHEALTH VISIT WITH THE OHIO HERBAL CLINIC TO GET YOUR OHIO MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD
Take a look at the ”Qualifying Conditions” page on this website which lists the qualifying medical conditions. We do offer PTSD assessments (book the “PTSD appointment only” option on our menu) but for all other qualifying conditions you will need to have been diagnosed PRIOR to being evaluated by us. We will need those medical records. If you have your medical records please have them available at the time of your appointment. If you have access to a MY Chart service that many of the local hospitals provide, during your Telehealth appointment we will walk you through transferring those records to us. If you don’t already have the records but are confident that they can be requested from your doctor then we will assist in helping you obtain those records but keep in mind this process of requesting records does cause delays in getting your medical card.
All of our appointments are currently being done via Telehealth. This is a simple Video Chat that doesn’t require anything more than a basic smart phone. You will receive a text message at the time of your appointment and after a couple of clicks we will be connected via Video Chat. No special apps to download.
All of our appointments are scheduled online from this website. If you call to try to schedule an appointment, the message will direct you online to schedule. The only way to get an appointment is to schedule it online.
We DO NOT accept cash, personal checks, or insurance. All payments are made online using credit/debit card.
The Ohio Herbal Clinic is the premier clinic to obtain your medical marijuana card in Columbus. As mentioned above, providing medical records confirming your diagnosis, having access to a MyChart health record, or signing a release form to request your medical records will be required. Once you’ve had your Telehealth evaluation and been deemed an appropriate medical marijuana patient, you will be registered online in the Ohio Medical Marijuana Patient Registry. You will receive an email from the Registry to complete your registration. Before clicking on the active link in that email, please make sure you are prepared to pay the state $50 ($25 for disabled or veteran) and that you are at a computer with a working printer. If you do not have a computer with a printer you can complete your registration from your cellphone and screenshot your card to keep on your phone. Most dispensaries will accept the card screenshot. If you click on the active link and decide not to complete your registration at that time, the link may time out and deactivate. You will then need to email the state Medical Marijuana Program at MMCPregistry@pharmacy.ohio.gov to have the email re-sent
The first Ohio dispensaries opened in January 2019. There are now 51 licensed dispensaries across the state, 4 of which are located in Columbus and another 4 within 30 minutes of Columbus. You can gain access to dispensaries in Columbus and throughout Ohio with the medical card and an Ohio state ID/driver’s license.
