Medical Use of Marijuana in Ohio
As with many other topics in the field of medicine that remain experimental, unproven and/or unconventional, it is essential that physicians have access to trusted sources for information. The Ohio State Medical Association is committed to sharing information from reputable sources so informed business decisions can be made. If legal advice or other expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.
How to Recommend Medical Marijuana in Ohio
All physician applicants must
comply with these 3 topics:
1) Eligibility to recommend medical marijuana requires that applicants must hold an active, unrestricted MD or DO license from the State Medical Board of Ohio.
2) The applicant must have completed at least two hours of continuing medical education in medical marijuana—certified by the Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA) or the Ohio Osteopathic Association.
3) Physicians must obtain the State Medical Board of Ohio’s Certificate to Recommend (CTR).
(You will be required to upload your CME course certificate. There is NO fee for the CTR.)
