How to Get a Utah Medical Marijuana Card

Medical Marijuana Cards are available in Utah through the Department of Health’s Hemp Registry program. Applications must be submitted in-person or by mail. If approved for the program a patient will be able to obtain “Hemp Extract” which is similar to Cannabidiol and is defined as a preparation or mixture that contains no more than 0.3% THC and no less than 15% CBD by weight.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible for a Hemp Extract Registration Card in Utah you must be a resident of the state and 18 years of age or older, or have a parent/guardian complete the application. You must also be diagnosed with “Intractable Epilepsy” which is defined as epilepsy that does not respond to three or more treatments as determined by a neurologist.

How much does it cost?

There is a $200 application fee. Renewals cost $50.

How do I apply?

To apply for a Utah Medical Marijuana Card complete the following steps:

  1. Visit with your neurologist and have them fill out a Neurologist Certification Form, Patient Evaluation Record Form, and Patient Medical History Form. They must also submit your information to the Office of Vital Records and Statistics database.
  2. Gather required documents, including a copy of your state-issued ID and proof of residency.
  3. Print and complete an Application for Hemp Extract Registration Card
