*There is a pending lawsuit regarding this new law. The Board will provide updates as they become available.
The chiropractic degree program offered by Keiser University was approved by the Board members at their meeting on September 24, 2019. Keiser graduates are now eligible to apply for Ohio licensure.
The 300-hour chiropractic Certified Chiropractic Acupuncture Practitioner (CCAP) Diplomate Program sponsored by Northwestern University of Health Sciences was also approved by the Board. Diplomates are eligible to apply for an acupuncture certificate.
A recent update to Ohio law (SB 57) changes the definition of marijuana to no longer include hemp and hemp products with a THC content of no more than three-tenths of a percent. Hemp products, including hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol), can now be sold outside of a licensed medical marijuana dispensary.
Hemp is defined as:
“The plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.”
