Here are the 20 Medical Conditions the State of Ohio Allows to be Treated with Cannabis

Republican Governor John Kasich signed House Bill 523 in June 2016, making the Ohio the 25th state to allow patients to use medical cannabis. About 90 days later, patients were legally allowed to using cannabis medicines. Where patients would get the cannabis was another question, since dispensaries are still not allowed in the state yet a year later, but nevermind the disconnect (In June 2017, Ohio will begin accepting applications that will allow 24 winners to grow medical cannabis).

HB 523 stipulates that cannabis can be recommended by doctors for 20 conditions, which are similar but not identical to the conditions approved by other states. Ohio’s qualifying conditions are:


  2. Alzheimer's disease

  3. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

  4. Cancer

  5. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)

  6. Crohn's disease

  7. Epilepsy or another seizure disorder

  8. Fibromyalgia

  9. Glaucoma

  10. Hepatitis C

  11. Inflammatory bowel disease

  12. Multiple sclerosis

  13. Pain that is chronic and severe, or intractable

  14. Parkinson's disease

  15. Post traumatic stress disorder

  16. Sickle cell anemia

  17. Spinal cord disease or injury

  18. Tourette's syndrome

  19. Traumatic brain injury

  20. Ulcerative colitis
