I Have A Qualifying Medical Condition, Now How Do I Get Approved?

However, before you can walk into dispensaries and purchase medical marijuana, you will need an Ohio medical marijuana card. The easiest way to obtain one is through our services here at Ohio Marijuana Card.

What Is An Ohio Medical Marijuana Card?

An Ohio medical marijuana card (sometimes referred to as an “affirmative defense” card) is simply the patient identification card that you will receive from the State Board of Pharmacy once you’ve been registered as a medical marijuana patient in the state of Ohio. With your card in hand, you’ll have all of the legal rights and benefits granted to patients under the State’s medical marijuana laws. An Ohio medical marijuana card provides you with the following benefits:

Ohio Marijuana Dispensary Access

​​​With your Ohio medical marijuana card in hand, you’ll be able to access all 60 dispensaries located throughout the state and purchase medical marijuana. These state-licensed marijuana dispensaries will carry many forms of medical marijuana in varying strengths and potency. You will be able to buy products such as tinctures, oils, creams, dry flower and plant material for vaporizers, and edibles.

Legal Protection

​Your Ohio Marijuana Card makes it easy for you to demonstrate to law enforcement that you are registered with Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control, and thereby allowed to possess, transport, and consume medical marijuana products.​

Access To Other States

​In the near future, you might be able to use your Ohio medical marijuana card in other states that have their own medical marijuana programs. This will depend on the Board of Pharmacy’s ability to establish reciprocity agreements with other states, in which out-of-state dispensaries would accept Ohio patients, and Ohio dispensaries would accept out-of-state patients. There should be more news about whether an agreement like this is put in place in the near future.

How To Get Approved For An Ohio Marijuana Card

If you are living with a qualifying condition, or you believe you have one of the conditions listed above, then you’ll need to schedule an appointment with a certified medical marijuana doctor to obtain your Ohio marijuana card. At the appointment, you and the doctor will discuss your medical condition(s) and treatment history. It is helpful for the doctor if you can bring any relevant medical records documenting your qualifying condition. By bringing your medical records to the appointment, you significantly increase the likelihood of receiving a recommendation from the doctor.

Assuming the doctor is able to confirm your qualifying condition, you’ll receive a signed recommendation following your appointment. The doctor’s signed recommendation will then be submitted to the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy. You submit a $50 registration fee to the Board of Pharmacy. They enter you into the patient registry. After your submission, you will receive your Ohio medical marijuana card will be emailed to you.

Tips for Fingernail Polish

Nail polish decorates your fingertips, accents various articles of clothing and strengthens your nails. Ideally, you want the polish to remain smooth and chip-free for as long as possible. A good polish job is easily to get at a salon, but it is far more cost-effective to do it yourself at home. According to Leigh Toselli, author of Pro Nail Care, by following a few simple tips, you can have professional quality polished nails from home.

Prime Your Nails

Remove old nail polish and any skin oils that have built up on the nails before painting them. This will create a clean and oil-free surface to which the nail polish can adhere. Use a cotton ball dipped in nail polish remover to clean your nails and ready them for new polish. Then thoroughly wash your nails with soap and water to remove the residue.

Use a Base Coat

Use a calcium-gel base coat before applying the nail polish. A base coat is a dull-colored paint that dries quickly, leaving a slightly sticky surface. The calcium in the base coat gel will strengthen and fortify your nails so they do not chip or crack as easily. If you use a separate nail strengthener, a non-calcium base coat will work just fine.

Pick a Quality Polish

Choose a quick-drying nail polish made by a reputable manufacturer. The color you pick should accentuate your general style. For example, if you commonly wear dark clothing, pick a bright color that matches the color of your accessories. Quality nail polish is available from most drugstores and beauty supply stores.

Apply Thin Layers

Paint on two or three thin coats of polish, allowing each to dry before applying the next layer. While it might seem faster to apply one thick coat, it’s not wise — it will take longer for your manicure to dry and it will be prone to chipping.

Use a Quick-Dry Product

Use a quick-dry nail coating, whether you use quick-drying nail polish or not. Quick-dry products are spray or paint-on oils that protect the surface of your nails from minor damage until the polish is thoroughly dry. They are available anywhere you find quality nail polish.

Steady Your Hand

Steady your hand as you paint by working on a hard surface and using your pinkie as an anchor. Hold the nail polish brush between your thumb and forefinger and rest your pinkie on a solid surface, such as the table, your knee or the hand being painted. This will allow you to keep an even brushstroke.…

The Advantages of Airbrush Makeup

Airbrush makeup, which is expelled in tiny micro-particles from an aerosol-like device held a couple inches away from the skin, has been a favored method of Hollywood makeup artists for years, due to the makeup’s long-lasting wear, thorough coverage, dewy finish and how well it photographs. Additionally, aerosol makeup has the added benefit of being water-resistant.


Airbrush makeup is waterproof, and can withstand significant amounts of sweat and tears. Because it is water-resistant, it stays in place and does not smear.

Long-Lasting Finish

Airbrush makeup provides long-lasting coverage and does not cake like many regular foundations. You will not need to worry about touch-ups and reapplying your makeup during the course of your day, or worry about the makeup rubbing off on your clothing.

Thorough Coverage

Airbrush makeup provides full coverage yet does not feel heavy or thick to the touch. It also controls oil production, keeping the skin from looking shiny. It also camouflages pores, providing a smooth finish. You can use airbrush over tattoos.

Photographs Well

Airbrush makeup is often used on actors for TV and big-screen appearances because it looks flawless and natural when photographed. For this reason it is perfect for special occasions like weddings.

Can Be Custom-Blended

Airbrush makeup has the benefit of looking natural and blending in very well, as it can be mixed on the fly to match people’s skin tones. Makeup artists can mix shades to create a custom foundation color for different clients.

Benefits for the Skin

Unlike many traditional foundations, airbrush makeup is non-comodegenic and oil free, meaning it does not clog the pores. It is also hypoallergenic, and is suitable for sensitive skin, allowing it to breathe.

Easy to Apply and Remove

Airbrush makeup only takes minutes to apply, once you’ve got the hang of it, and washes off easily with soap and water.…

What are Special Effects Makeup Tips?

Halloween, costume parties, theater productions, fun dances and other such occasions call for special makeup effects. You know what effect you want to achieve, but may not have a clue how to get it. There are a few tricks that you can practice to get that professional look you desire. Many of the supplies you need are things you have around the house.

Halloween Makeup Tips

Scary Halloween effects can be made with ingredients from your pantry.

Make sure your face is clean and dry first. To make scary effects, paint your face using a mixture of one teaspoon of cornstarch, a half teaspoon of water, a half teaspoon of cold cream and some food coloring. Use your fingertips for large areas and a paint brush for making specific designs. It is easily removable and can be washed off with soap and water. Use your imagination. You can make fake injuries, bruises and blood. To make bruises, apply deep blue powder eye shadow using a dampened makeup brush. Add blots of charcoal gray and blue shadows for a realistic effect. Touch up the edges with olive green and then smudge the edges. To make blood, pour a half bottle of light corn syrup into a bowl and add hot water while stirring until you have the right consistency. Add a little liquid soap to make it easy to wash off. Drop in red food color as desired. If you want darker blood color, you can use a drop or two of blue or green food color into the mixture.

Beautiful Makeup Tips

Smokey eye effects are very popular and easy to get.

For a festive look for a dance or party, you can create a smokey eye effect. First cover your eyelids with nude shimmery eye shadow. Then, use glittery gray eye shadow from just above your eyelashes to the crease in the eyelid. Using a wet q-tip or eyeliner, place a line just above the top lash line and extend it out a little beyond the corner. Add white eye shadow right below the eyebrow and also in the corner of your eye. Make sure to blend the makeup so there are not hard lines. You may add any other color above the gray eye shadow and then blend them together. Finish the effect by curling your eyelashes and using mascara to make them stand out. For luscious lips, apply foundation over lips when you apply it to your face. Line your lips with lip liner (you can also make them fuller when you draw them on). Apply your lipstick with a brush from outside to inside. Tissue off the extra and then color them again. Coat your lips with lip gloss and add sparkle if desired. Add a bit of matching blush under cheekbones, a little on the forehead and under the chin.

Theater Makeup Tips

Special makeup effects are used often in the theater.

Theater makeup is usually heavier than what you wear every day, so the audience can see the character rather than you. Use brighter colors, more shading with blush to create contours, and finish it off with powder so it will not melt under the stage lights. It is also suggested that you use a foundation that is darker than your own skin so you will not look washed out under the lights. When applying eyeliner, try to get as close to the lashes as possible and angle the pencil for a heavier look. Use a sponge to apply makeup base. Cold cream or baby oil can be used to remove the heavy makeup. Use circular motions with your fingertips to loosen the makeup. Do not use paper products as they have abrasive qualities.


Eyeliners 101 – all you need to know about Liners

There are four most common types of eye liners – pencil, liquid, and fluid. I will go through the pros and cons of each of them below.

Pencil Eyeliner

Pencil_linerThis is the stuff you used back when you were in your teens and first started to experiment with makeup. It’s easy to use and can be manipulated to produce lots of different effects. For example, you can create a daytime look by applying clean lines, or you can create an evening look by smudging it for the smoky eye effect. You can use it on both your upper and lower lash line, and they usually come in a wide variety of colours. I find they also last pretty long too, you can use it even if it’s just down to the last stub. The only problem is that they tend to smudge (especially during summer when we sweat more) but a trick to prevent that is to apply a neutral shade shadow below your lower lash line to absorb the oil and/or sweat. I also tend to avoid black pencil liners and go for espresso or dark plum shades, simply because I find the black to be fairly overwhelming and tends to create a Goth-ish look.

Liquid Eyeliner

LiquideyelinerLiquid liners are used when you want a dramatic effect, because the colours pigments are fairly intense. But that doesn’t mean they cannot be used for a daytime effect.

Liquid liners are either brush-tipped or soft or hard felt-tipped. I personally prefer the felt-tip as it is easier to manipulate. Soft tips feel better on the skin around your eyes, but hard tips offer more precision, so it really depends on your preference. I usually do a little wing at the outer edge of my eyes, and when I use the hard tip I work from the outside in. Liquid lines are AMAZING for creating bigger looking eyes, especially in the black shade, but I have also seen fun shades like turquoise and gold floating around.

The downside to liquid liners is that they are harder to use than pencils, and they often tend to run/flake. I have waterproof liners but they still seem to flake by the end of the day. But if I just wear for a couple hours in an evening out they always stay very well.

Fluid Liner

MacFluidLiner2Fluid liner occupies a middle ground between liquid liner and a pencil liner. They come in a little container and are easily applicable using a flat angle brush or a small eyeliner brush. The product lasts a long time as a tiny bit goes a long way. This type of liner can create either subtle or dramatic effect depending on how you blend the line with your brush. It can be used interchangeably with liquid liners. Most of these liners tend to have a lot of staying power, and does not flake or smudge easily.

Powder Eyeliner

LancomeEyeShadowPowder is yet another eyeliner choice, and it offers lots of flexibility in determining the final effect of the liner. You can apply it as a dry powder for a subtle look, or wet your brush applicator (I recommend a flat angle one) and apply the shadow for a more dramatic looks (but not as dramatic as liquid or fluid). You can use a matte colour for a classic daytime look or a glittery shadow for some nighttime glam. You can also use eye shadow to set your liquid eyeliners, which could help prevent the liquid liners from running/smudging.

Eye Makeup Ideas

When a woman takes the time to apply eye makeup, she wants it to stand out, to look the absolute best that it can. Unfortunately, unless they are makeup artists, most women don’t know that much about applying eye makeup or the purpose of it. We generally go with what we think looks nice. However, it is possible to take your eye make up a few steps further if you learn the basics of eye makeup and read up on eye makeup ideas.

The most important thing about wearing eye makeup is that whatever you wear or whatever look you want to achieve depends on the shape and spacing of your eyes. Eye makeup is great because it can improve the way your eyes look or play up the already existing beauty of your eyes. But to get to that point, you must understand the basics of eye makeup.

The first thing is the eye makeup kit. A basic eye makeup kit contains three shades of shadow. The highlighter is the lightest shade. It would be applied first. The mid shade is the most important shade in the kit. It is the most subtle and the closest to your natural skin color. The mid shade is usually the most frequently used shade in the kit. The last shade is the contour shade. This is the darkest shade in the kit. While most women understand that the purpose of eye makeup is to accentuate the eyes, most women are afraid to be bold and daring with their eye makeup. Therefore, most women simply throw on a little liner, mascara, and match their eye shadow to either their clothing or their natural eye color.

In order to experiment with eye makeup ideas, it is important to determine the shape of your eyes and how you would like to accentuate them. The following are some easy eye makeup ideas.

  • Many women have what is known as hooded eyes. This is where the eyelids look partially closed. This is a simple problem to fix. To open up the eye, you want to minimize the eyelid and draw attention to your brows. Since more attention will be paid to your eye brows, you will want to make sure that they are shaped properly. In this scenario, you would not brush your shadow over the entire lid. Applying eye makeup under the lower lashes also helps with drawing attention away from the eyelid.
  • Droopy eyes are simply caused by getting older. There is nothing that can be done to stop it. However, you can camouflage the droopiness by utilizing a basic makeup kit and using all three shades. To do this, you would fully cover the lid with shadow. Using the contour shade under the eye, along the lash line also helps to hide this sign of aging.

Even if your eyes are flawless and gorgeous, there are still eye makeup ideas that will certainly enhance their beauty.

  • The Cat Eye technique is a sexy idea that draws attention to the eyes and if done correctly, will make them appear larger.
  • Using brightly colored eye shadow is a trend that many people hesitate to do because they are uncertain if they can pull it off. The answer is yes, you can. It is very easy and will make you feel fun and flirtatious. Use bright colored shadows like blue, turquoise, lilac, or green to enhance your eyes and your wardrobe.
  • Spice up your smokey eye with a little metallic shimmer eyeliner. To really make this look pop, use a colored shadow in place of the standard black or grey.

When testing out new eye makeup ideas, it is important to keep these key tips in mind.

  • False eyelashes are excellent for special occasions but you do not want to over use them.
  • Use an eyelash curler before applying mascara to really open your eyes.
  • If you are going with dramatic eye makeup, do not go overboard on the lips. It will give the appearance that you are too made up and leave you feeling uncomfortable.
  • Use white eye shadow to brighten and enlarge your eyes.
  • When applying concealer and powder, apply it to the entire eye area. This will result in a longer lasting eye makeup appearance.
  • Keep your pencils sharp. It is wise to sharpen your brow pencils, and your eyeliners before each use.
  • Use shimmer shadows to add drama to your basic look.
  • If you do not have time to get your eyebrows waxed or plucked, you can use any type of hair gel to hold your brows in place. But don’t mess up your brushes. Use an old toothbrush.

If you don’t have time to create a full look, using the mid shade in your basic kit saves precious time and looks great as well.

The most important eye make up idea of all is to simply have fun and don’t be afraid to experiment. Eye make up is not permanent. If you don’t like it, wash it off.
