Iowa Medical Marijuana Card Legislation

Iowa does not allow for medical marijuana or adult-use of cannabis, though Iowa allows for a 3% THC limit on CBD to be purchased and consumed. Though, residents can become patients and caregivers who are allowed to purchase medical CBD products from an Iowa-licensed dispensary.

In 2014, Iowa passed SF 2360 known as the Medical Cannabidiol Act which allowed licensed neurologists to certify patients with intractable epilepsy to use CBD products with less than 3% THC. SF 2360 decriminalized the possession of cannabis oil used only to treat chronic epilepsy.

In 2017, Gov. Terry Branstad signed HF 524, known as the 2017 Medical Cannabidiol Act, which added a list of qualifying conditions and directed the Iowa Department of Public Health to license dispensaries to distribute CBD to patients.

In June 2020, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed HF 2589, which added more qualifying conditions and expanded the list of medical professionals who are allowed to recommend medical cannabis. This new law also changed the amount of THC within products from 3% or less THC to 4.5 grams total THC over a 90-day period.

Iowa Medical Marijuana Card Cultivation & Possession Laws

Registered qualifying patients and caregivers in Illinois may possess no more than 4.5 grams of THC during each 90-day period unless the patient has a terminal illness or waived from their doctor. Cannabis cultivation is entirely illegal in Iowa.
