A Step-by-Step Guide to Accessing Medical Marijuana in Iowa

In 2014, the Iowa Senate passed the Medical Cannabidiol Act, giving a small subset of patients access to medical marijuana. This law showed the promise of cannabis as natural medicine, paving the way for program expansions in 2017 and 2020. Today, medical cannabis is recognized by the state as a versatile treatment option.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my registration last?

Your Iowa medical marijuana card is valid for one year after the date of issue. When your registration card expires, you must apply for recertification through a licensed physician and submit your new forms to the Department of Public Health.

How much do medical marijuana products cost?

Pricing varies by product and dosage, so providing an accurate cost estimate is challenging. We suggest checking your nearest dispensary’s website for a better idea of typical prices.

Note that medical marijuana in Iowa is not covered by insurance at this time.

What forms of medical marijuana can I purchase?

Iowa residents can buy and use various forms of medical cannabis, including:

  1. Oral forms – Capsules, tablets, tinctures, liquids, and sublingual forms are widely available.
  2. Inhalable forms – Vaporizers and nebulizable inhaled forms of medical cannabis are sold at licensed pharmacies.
  3. Topical forms – Creams, gels, lotions, ointments, and transdermal patches are an option for those who don’t want to ingest the product.
  4. Suppositories – Rectal and vaginal suppositories can be purchased at some dispensaries.

For the most up-to-date information on available products, visit Iowa’s licensed manufacturer’s website, Aliviar.

Is medical marijuana authorized for minors?

Yes. If a licensed physician believes a minor can benefit from medical cannabis, they can provide a Healthcare Practitioner Certification Form (HPCF). While a signed HPCF is necessary, no patient application is required with submission.

The caregiver application can be found here: Iowa OMC Application.

Can I grow medical marijuana for personal consumption?

No. According to Iowa law, growing medical marijuana for any reason—medical or recreational—is illegal without the proper cultivator permits.

How much medical marijuana can I possess at a time?

As a rule of thumb, medical marijuana patients may purchase up to 4.5 grams of THC every 90 days. However, exceptions may be given to patients who need more cannabis to manage their condition and the related symptoms.

How long does it take for the Department of Health to approve my submission?

If you submit your application by paper, you may have to wait up to two weeks to hear back. For the quickest turnaround time, we recommend using the online portal.
