Blatman Health and Wellness Center is proud to announce our participation in Ohio’s medical marijuana program which is set to start on September 8th, 2017. Our wellness clinic has been specializing in the holistic management of chronic pain and other disorders since 1988. Medical marijuana will be a welcome addition to our diverse array of treatment options for our patients. Our practitioner, Dr.Blatman, is currently awaiting certification as a licensed medical marijuana doctor. Further information will be available as we near the programs start date in September. Currently, there are no medical marijuana doctors in Cincinnati or the state of Ohio who can prescribe cannabis until the law takes effect. However, Ohio MMJ doctors can provide recommendations that may serve as a legal defense should a patient be facing prosecution for using medical marijuana before the program officially starts.
How to Obtain Your Ohio MMJ Card
Once the program is active, certified Cincinnati medical marijuana doctors and physicians across Ohio can recommend marijuana to patients who have a qualifying medical condition. Eligible conditions include chronic pain, cancer, spinal disease, and more. It’s important to note that cannabis doctors do not actually prescribe cannabis. If you qualify, you’ll receive a recommendation that you can then use to obtain a license. You can use your license to purchase medical marijuana from a registered dispensary. If you’re experiencing pain now – don’t wait for a medical marijuana card to become available.
