If you have any questions regarding the qualification process for a Medical Cannabis card, please give us a call or text.  We are here to help! We are currently taking medical cannabis patients 21 years old and older. (435-485-7887)

1. The following health conditions are qualifying conditions in Utah for a medical cannabis card.  Please call us if you are unsure whether these conditions apply to you.

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.​

  • 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, 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

    • Please Note: The key medical record requirement with PTSD is a letter from your current therapist (Actively participating in therapy is a requirement due to data showing improved outcomes) stating that you have PTSD or symptoms of PTSD.

  • 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 


  Make an Appointment

2. You must be 21 or older to schedule.  (for pediatric patients, we recommend you seek a Pediatric Qualified Medical Prescriber)  To schedule please give our office a call.

3. Once you are scheduled, please read our confirmation email completely! It includes everything you need to apply for a Utah Medical Cannabis card. You'll start with accessing our patient portal and filling out new patient forms including listing all current prescriptions, previous or current injuries, diagnoses, or symptoms you are currently experiencing.

4. Create a login ID. Then login to your State portal to begin your application for a medical cannabis card. If you need help with the steps, please consult the patient guide.

​5. Gather your health records that document any diagnoses, injuries, or treatments of the qualified conditions, including list of medications you have tried in the past. Medical records are NOT a requirement in some cases but should be presented whenever practical to assist us in understanding your health conditions.

                                 Next, Your Initial Visit

6. Your initial visit will be in-person at our American Fork office for which you will need to bring a picture ID.  Within 24 hours after your visit, you will receive an email notifying you it is time to pay your application fee to the State. 

​7. Log back into the EVS system and pay the $15 Utah State medical card application fee. 

​8. You will then receive an email from the EVS system within about a week with your electronic medical cannabis card. You can then contact your local Utah Cannabis pharmacy to set up a free 30 minute consultation with the pharmacist to help identify which medical cannabis product will be bets for your needs. 

​9. Medical cards will expire 6 months from the issue date so please plan to meet with your qualified medical prescriber within 30 days prior to expiration to keep your card active.  After a year of stability with medical cannabis you may be able to move to an annual card renewal. We can do a telehealth visit for follow up appointments if that works better for you.
