Adding Additional Conditions to the List:
Additional conditions may be added by the the Ohio state medical board. In fact, Ohio doctors may soon be able to recommend medical marijuana as a treatment option for anxiety disorders. Members of the state’s Medical Board recently recommended that anxiety be added to the list of qualifying conditions. However, those suffering from anxiety may be limited to using non-psychoactive CBD oil.
Board members also recommended that autism, opioid use disorder, depression, and insomnia. However, the board recommended against adding these conditions to the list.
These recommendations are the result of the Medical Board asking the public for online petitions to request additional qualifying conditions.
