Do I qualify for medical cannabis?

Utah Qualifying Conditions

1.  Understand what condition you are most likely to qualify under and remember that not all conditions qualify. If you apply under 'Anxiety' for example, you won't qualify. You may also want to visit Utah's Medical Cannabis Dept's FAQ's. Utah Qualifying Health Conditions are as follows:

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  • pain lasting longer than two weeks that is not adequately managed, in the qualified medical provider’s opinion, despite treatment attempts using conventional medications other than opioids or opiates or physical interventions

  • amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

  • persistent nausea that is not significantly responsive to traditional treatment, except for nausea related to:

    • pregnancy

    • cannabis-induced cyclical vomiting syndrome

    • cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome

  • Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis

  • epilepsy or debilitating seizures

  • multiple sclerosis or persistent and debilitating muscle spasms

  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that is being treated and monitored by a licensed health therapist (defined here), and that:

    • has been diagnosed by a healthcare provider by the Veterans Administration and documented in the patient’s record; or

    • has been diagnosed or confirmed by evaluation from a psychiatrist, doctorate psychologist, a doctorate licensed clinical social worker, or a psychiatric APRN 

  • autism

  • a terminal illness when the patient’s life expectancy is less than six months

  • HIV or acquired immune deficiency syndrome

  • a condition resulting in the individual receiving hospice care

  • cancer

  • cachexia

  • a rare condition or disease that affects less than 200,000 individuals in the U.S., as defined in federal law, and that is not adequately managed despite treatment attempts using conventional medications (other than opioids or opiates) or physical interventions

  • a condition that the Compassionate Use Board approves (once established) on a case-by-case basis

6. Come see us at our beautiful new home in the Spaces Building in Lehi. Think of some health goals you'd like to achieve with medical cannabis and write them down. If you'd like a Letter of Recommendation, available through the end of 2020, please ask for one. If we have what we need to certify your application, there is no charge for the Letter, which will get you into one dispensary and give you instant medical cannabis legal protection.

7. Log back into the EVS system and pay the $15 Utah State Medical Card Fee. We can help you do this at the time of your appointment.

8. Log back to the EVS system after a week or so to print your card, and enjoy your legal cannabis access at a Utah pharmacy.

9. Consider helping other patients by volunteering for our anonymous and secure efficacy tracking. Share what strains or products you are using and your own assessment of how well its doing. We will stay on top of card expirations and reach out to you when it's time to renew. When we visit you for a card renewal (this can be a telemedicine visit) you'll have the option to opt in to this groundbreaking cannabis science for the benefit of those who will come after us seeking cannabis natural medicine.

Keeping your Medical Cannabis Card Active

Telehealth renewals are every 6 months with the exception of your first renewal, which is at 90 days. Costs for these virtual telehealth checkups are $99, and the State charges a $5 renewal fee. Discounts mentioned above apply to renewals as well as to new patients. You will receive an email from our clinic, as well as the State of Utah's medical cannabis department when it is time to begin the renewal process. Please read and follow instructions on both emails.

Tight on money at renewal time? We won't let that be the reason your card expires. Let us know so we can preserve your active card status.

We have your back!
