2018 Ohio Bioscience Conference Series

BioOhio is hosting a series of conferences in 2018 to focus on critical topics facing our state, and the nation. Next up is Medical Cannabis in the Buckeye State, June 18, in Cleveland, Ohio


Medical marijuana/cannabis is now legal in Ohio, and there are many misconceptions and unknowns, especially about how patients will use it.

Ohio law prohibits use by smoking or combustion. It permits the use of oils, tinctures, plant material, edibles, vaporization, and patches. These options allow for new methods and products to be made, as well as a return to traditional practices dating back a century or more.

This inaugural event hosted by BioOhio, is meant to educate about what the medical cannabis industry will look like in Ohio and showcase many Ohio players already active across the world.  If you’re already in the industry you should attend to network with others and raise your visibility. If you’re new to the field, you should come to learn and get connected. Click here to learn more and join us in Cleveland on June 18!

Registration opens at 8am, content begins at 9am, with a networking lunch to conclude the event at 1pm.
