NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Jan. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Compassion Network is opening a clinical site in North Canton for local patients to establish with a Certified to Recommend (CTR) physician. The Green Compassion Network expands from Athens to Cleveland, where their Amherst location can be found, to their new clinic in North Canton.

Ohio's medical marijuana regulators opened the registry for patients on December 3rd, while cautioning the first supplies will be scant. "The opening of the online patient registry indicates the Pharmacy Board believes product will be available within 60 days. In an effort to meet the demand, we are excited to bring our services to North Canton, Ohio," stated Julia Appleby, Green Compassion Network Founder.

"Ohio legalized Medical Marijuana in September 2016. There have been many false starts with Ohio's Medical Marijuana Program," Green Compassion Network Chief Marketing Officer Ted Shingleton said. "But we've been working diligently to empower our patients through education and process automation, so they may receive their medical marijuana recommendation and hit the ground running."

Ohio law states, "before medical marijuana may be dispensed to or for, a prospective patient, the prospective patient must be placed on the registry established by the state board of pharmacy. To qualify for placement on the registry, a prospective patient must establish and maintain a bona fide physician-patient relationship with a recommending physician and receive a diagnosis or confirmation of a qualifying condition from the recommending physician."

Green Compassion Network streamlines this process, by assisting patients hoping to receive their medical marijuana card. Their HIPAA compliant online portal allows patients to register with a CTR physician with ease and confidence. Their North Canton doctor is currently accepting new patients.


Green Compassion Network has state-certified doctors throughout Ohio who specialize in recommending medical marijuana for qualifying patients. Customers can call Green Compassion Network toll free at 1-833-426-4673 or visit to book an appointment online or discover how medical marijuana can help.
