Re: Recommending with license #

Dear Dr. ,

Although the patient registry portal is not yet live, there is important information that your patients should know about one year recommendation. The one year time period starts on the date of payment in the Patient Registry, not purchase.  


Patients should also be aware that there will be limited amounts and types of product available as the first crops are harvested, tested and processed. Therefore, they may wish to wait to pay for their patient card until their preferred type of medical marijuana is available at a dispensary.

An overview of the steps for patients to obtain medical marijuana is included in the educational video below.


As one of the physicians in the State of Ohio with a certificate to recommend medical marijuana (CTR), it is important that you update your Public Address in eLicense. This information is public and will be published. We encourage you to list the practice address at which you will be seeing patients for medical marijuana recommendations. Currently, only City and ZIP code are listed because of lack of accurate addresses in eLicense.

To update your address, log into eLicense and select "change address" from the options menu on your dashboard page. See below for an example.

After you have made the necessary changes, choose which address you want to be publicly displayed.

The registry is developed, but not yet live. Please review this instructional video on how to use the registry once it is opened and product is available. ONCE THE PATIENT REGISTRY PORTAL IS LIVE, WE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH A LINK TO THE WEBSITE.
