Renewing Your Ohio Medical Marijuana Card is Fast and Simple
Updated: Dec 9, 2021
Under Ohio law, it is required that registered medical marijuana patients renew their marijuana card every year. If you are wondering how to renew your Ohio medical marijuana card, look no further! In this article, we will take a look at all the things you need to do before your medical marijuana card expires, to ensure you never have a gap in your access to treatment, and that your medical card renewal goes as smoothly as possible.
When Can I Renew My Ohio Medical Marijuana Card?
According to the Ohio Board of Pharmacy, patients will be able to renew their card 90 days before the expiration date found on their registry card. The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program has recently made changes to its marijuana card renewal process, and patients and caregivers will no longer receive reminder emails about renewing their cards.
Therefore, it is up to patients to keep an eye on when their marijuana card expires, and to make sure they renew with the patient registry by or before the expiration date on their card.

Do I Need To See A Doctor Again To Renew My Ohio Marijuana Card?
Yes. In order to keep your Ohio marijuana card valid, you'll need to schedule an appointment and meet with a certified marijuana doctor every year in order to renew your medical marijuana card.
Similar to the initial evaluation appointment before receiving your medical marijuana card for the first time, you will meet with the doctor to discuss your qualifying condition, and to review any medical records available.
Generally, you can use the same medical records you had at your initial evaluation, unless otherwise stated by the doctor. If your condition is curable, you may have to prove you still have an active diagnosis and provide additional documentation. But in most cases, you'll be able to use your medical records from the previous year to renew your Ohio marijuana card. They just need to be current and accurate.
Do I Need To Submit Another Application To The State In Order To Renew My Card?
After meeting with one of our doctors and obtaining a new written recommendation, patients will need to login to their Ohio Medical Marijuana Registry account to activate their marijuana card renewal.
Once signed into your account, you will select the button labeled “Renew Card” and follow the prompts. A registration fee of $50 is required in order to process the renewal application. After submitting the fee, patients will be redirected to their profile where a new marijuana patient I.D. card will be present with a new expiration date.
