Ohio Becomes 25th State to Legalize Medical Cannabis

Ohio Governor John Kasich recently signed into law a bill legalizing medical cannabis, meaning that now half of all states have some sort of medical marijuana program. Despite some objections that the Ohio program doesn't go far enough, it is still considered a victory for proponents of both THC and cannabidiol (CBD).


The Ohio law will allow for the following conditions to be eligible for medical cannabis:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Cancer
  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Epilepsy or other seizure disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Glaucoma
  • Hepatitis C
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Pain that is either:
    • Chronic and severe
    • Intractable
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Spinal cord disease or injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Ulcerative colitis

Ohio's program states that patients shall be given legal access to oils, tinctures, edibles, and pills. While it will take time for dispensaries to open, potential patients are already researching the different types of CBD and other products to find out their unique properties and effects. Fans of CBD products state they find relief from different kinds of pain, depression, anxiety, epilepsy, and more.
