The Benefits of Having a Medical Marijuana Card

Medical marijuana is legal in Ohio and hundreds of thousands of recommendations have already been written! We hope that one day soon, recreational marijuana will also be legalized in Ohio.

Many states end up legalizing marijuana entirely shortly after launching their medical program. This has been the case for 21 states so far, and more to come. It is inevitable that Ohio will join these states soon.

Nevertheless, there are countless benefits to having your medical marijuana card in a recreational state. Among these benefits are lower overall costs, less tax, and legal protection.

Lower Costs

Medical dispensaries in general offer products at a lower cost than recreational dispensaries. Not to mention, medical patients are not subject to the same retail taxes on products that recreational users are.

The tax rate for retail sales of recreational cannabis products is usually 1-3% more than that of medical marijuana. This may not sound like much, but any medical marijuana patient will tell you that dispensaries are not cheap.

Over time, this percentage and the savings you would get from shopping at a medical-only dispensary would be a considerable amount. Especially at times where we are all feeling the effects of inflation, saving wherever possible is desired!

Higher Possession Limits

In most recreational states, medical marijuana card holders enjoy higher possession limits for their cannabis. This is a really great perk of having your card, because not everyone lives 5 minutes from the dispensary.

Having your medical marijuana card allows you to purchase and possess more marijuana at once.

Higher Potency

Most states set caps on the amount of THC in marijuana products, for both medical and recreational. However, medical marijuana products usually have higher THC limits, which means medical patients are getting more bang for their buck.

Access to higher potency products means you will spend less and save more to reach your desired effect when using cannabis. You will also probably use less of your product, which means less trips to the dispensary as well!

Legal Protection

Some states with medical marijuana programs have enacted certain laws that will help protect medical patients. Having a medical marijuana card means that a licensed professional recommended cannabis to you legally.

Having a medical card can only ever help you when it comes to legal issues and will never hurt you. You are backed by a licensed physician which will help you no matter what!
