Medical Marijuana Basics: What Every Ohio MMJ Patient Should Know

Date Published 12/16/20, 3:45 PM

Whether you have used marijuana in the past or just recently learned about medical marijuana, it is every patient’s responsibility to understand the basics.

Medical marijuana patients in Ohio have access to natural medicine that can help alleviate painful every day symptoms. However, this access also comes with responsibilities. A patient’s right to have a medical marijuana prescription does not mean they are permitted to enjoy marijuana in any way that they see fit. In fact, MMJ patients in Ohio should regularly work with their doctor to find the right medical cannabis dosage that works with the patient’s needs. 

1. You Must Register With The State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy

After you are provided a medical marijuana recommendation by a state qualified physician, you must register with the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy as a medical marijuana patient. When you trust in GCN’s network of doctors, you will find that this process is simple. Our doctors will help you complete the necessary registration process. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure your registration is active every year moving forward. Otherwise, you may not be able to access your medical cannabis products in the future. 

2. You Cannot Go Over Your Monthly Dosage of Product

After you are provided a medical marijuana recommendation, you will be provided an allotment or dosage of product. This dosage will spell out exactly how much medical marijuana you are permitted to purchase each month. While you may certainly stay under your maximum dosage, you cannot go over. If you do not work with your qualified physician to find a daily dosage that works for you, you may find that you do not have enough of your medical cannabis for the entire month. If you run out of your allotted product, you will be required to wait until the first of the next month to refill it. 

3. Your Medical Marijuana Dosage Is For Your Symptoms Only

Your medical marijuana dosage is for you and you alone. It is not to be shared with other members of your family or friends. Your qualified physician has recommended you as a medical marijuana patient because you meet one of the qualifying conditions set forth by the State of Ohio. You should never share your medical cannabis with others. Instead, you should recommend they speak with a representative of Green Compassion Network to learn just how easy it is to become a legal Ohio MMJ patient.
