FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I register for an Ohio Medical Marijuana Card?

    1. Find A CTR Doctor

    Find and schedule a visit with a (CTR) certified to recommend medical marijuana doctor. For a list of all CTR doctors in Ohio, or to find a CTR doctor in your area, use the Ohio Medical Board CTR Search.

    The physician will need one of the following forms of ID: the patient’s valid Ohio driver’s license, a valid Ohio identification card issued by the Ohio bureau of motor vehicles (BMV), or a valid United States passport.

    The physician may also ask for medical records pertaining to the patient’s qualifying condition.

    Patients registered with a special status of Veteran or Indigent are eligible for discounts at dispensaries and reduced state registration fees. Patients wishing to apply for Veteran or Indigent status will need to bring additional paperwork to the physician appointment. See next FAQ “How do I register with Indigent or Veteran Status?”

    2. Complete MMCP Patient Registration

    Once your CTR doctor has entered your information into the patient or caregiver registry, you will receive an email with instructions on how to login to your patient registry account. Once logged in you will have to complete your patient or caregiver application and pay the annual registration fee of $50 for patients and $25 for caregivers

    Patients who qualify for Indigent or Veteran status may qualify to have their state registration fee reduced by 50%. Patients seeking to qualify for Veteran or Indigent Status cannot submit payment until their status has been approved by the Board of Pharmacy. The “Activate Card” button is not available while the status is pending.

    **Note for caregivers: While a patient’s card is active immediately upon submitting payment, a caregiver’s card may take up to 1 week to be active. We encourage caregivers to call the dispensary to verify their status prior to their first visit to a dispensary in the state.

    3. Visit Us!

    Once you have received your Patient or Caregiver Registry Card, you will be able to purchase at Southern Ohio Botanicals or any other dispensary licensed by the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy.

  • How do I register with Indigent or Veteran status?

    Patients registering with Indigent or Veteran status may have their state registration fees reduced by 50%.

    To qualify for Indigent Status registration, the patient must be:

    • Enrolled in the federal Social Security Disability Income or the Supplemental Security Income disability programs, or;
    • Enrolled in a State Retirement System and receiving monthly disability benefits.
    At the patient’s initial CRT physician visit, please provide the awards letter from the current year showing the patient’s name and the amount of monthly disability benefits to be received by the patient.

    To qualify for Veteran Status, the patient will need to provide a copy of any of the following documents to the CTR physician at the initial visit:
    • Department of Defense Identification Card (active, retired, temporary disability retirement list) DD214, DD215, or National Guard Bureau military discharge certificate indicating disposition of discharge.
    • Report of separation from the National Archives National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, Mo. Veterans Identification Card from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    All acceptable proof documents, except a Veterans Identification Card, must show the veteran status as honorable, general, general under honorable conditions, or discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.

    The CTR Physician will email the documentation along with the applicant’s date of birth to MMCPRegistry@pharmacy.ohio.gov or mail to:

    State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy
    MMCP Patient Registry
    77. S. High Street, 17th Floor
    Columbus, OH 43215

    Patients seeking to qualify for Veteran or Indigent Status cannot submit payment until their status has been approved by the Board of Pharmacy. The “Activate Card” button is not available while the status is pending.

    Seeing this too late? Do you think you qualify for Veteran or Indigent Status but are already registered? You can email the Board of Pharmacy your documentation along with your date of birth.

    Need help scanning the documents over to the Board of Pharmacy? Just bring them on your next visit to Southern Ohio Botanicals and we will email the Board for you!

  • How do I find a Medical Marijuana Doctor?

    Many physicians are now accepting telemedicine appointments. For a list of all CTR doctors in Ohio, or to find a CTR doctor in your area, use the Ohio Medical Board CTR Search.

    The physician will need one of the following forms of ID: the patient’s valid Ohio driver’s license, a valid Ohio identification card issued by the Ohio bureau of motor vehicles (BMV), or a valid United States passport.

    The physician may also ask for medical records pertaining to the patient’s qualifying condition.

  • How do I register as a caregiver?

    Individuals already registered as a patient can be registered as a caregiver by being linked to another patient by their physician.

    The physician will find the patient to whom the individual already registered as a patient will be linked. Under the “Caregivers” tab, the physician will click the button labelled “ADD”. They will search for the individual already registered as a patient using the Registry’s search feature. When the desired individual’s name appears in the search results, the physician will click the button labeled “ADD TO PATIENT”. Once they click the button, the registrant will be registered as both a patient and a caregiver.

    If you have any questions about registering as a caregiver, please call the Ohio Medical Marijuana Toll-Free Helpline at 1-833-4OH-MMCP (1-833-464-6627), or contact the Board via email MMCPRegistry@pharmacy.ohio.gov.

medical marijuana dosage and administration: navigating the options, southern ohio botanicals

Medical Marijuana Dosage and Administration: Navigating the Options

Finding the right dosage for medical marijuana is a critical step in your journey toward improved health, and it’s one that Southern Ohio Botanicals is dedicated to helping you navigate. Every individual responds differently to marijuana, and the dosage required to achieve therapeutic benefits can vary significantly between patients. Factors such as your body weight, metabolism, the severity of your symptoms, and your previous experience with marijuana all play a role in determining the right dosage for you. Most importantly, starting with a lower dose and gradually increasing it is key. This approach, often referred to as “start low and go slow”, allows you to assess your body’s response and minimize any potential side effects. Your health and well-being are our top priority, and we’re here to guide you in finding a dosage that’s both safe and effective. In addition to dosage, the method of administration plays a significant role […]

strains and cannabinoids: finding the right match, southern ohio botanicals

Strains and Cannabinoids: Finding the Right Match

At Southern Ohio Botanicals, we understand that each patient’s needs are unique, and finding the right match between strains and cannabinoids is essential in maximizing the therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana. Our team of experts carefully selects the strains we offer, considering the individual profiles of cannabinoids they contain, including THC, CBD, and many others. These compounds each have unique properties and potential applications, allowing for a wide array of customization in treatments. Anchoring our service in patient-centered care, we prioritize providing a personalized experience, matching the right strains and cannabinoids to each patient’s specific health concerns. In the realm of medical marijuana, the adage “one size does not fit all” truly rings true. The choice of strain and the combination of cannabinoids can significantly impact the effectiveness of treatment. For example, strains high in THC, the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana, have a potent effect and are often preferred […]

Medical Conditions and Marijuana: A Comprehensive Guide

Medical marijuana has been found to provide significant relief for a variety of medical conditions. Chronic pain, a prevalent condition that affects millions worldwide, often responds positively to cannabis-based treatments. Multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease affecting the central nervous system, can also be managed more effectively with marijuana, reducing painful muscle spasms. Patients undergoing chemotherapy for cancer have found marijuana helpful in managing nausea and improving appetite. Neurological conditions such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease also show promising responses to medical marijuana. The drug has been linked to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures and improved quality of life for Parkinson’s patients. Furthermore, mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety disorders, have been treated successfully with medical marijuana in some cases. Lastly, research is ongoing into the potential benefits of marijuana for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. When you visit our medical marijuana […]
