For information about the cultivation and manufacturing of medical cannabis under HB 3001, please contact the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food. A complete copy of HB 3001 is available on the Utah Legislature’s website.

Medical cannabis will only be available in the following forms under the Utah Medical Cannabis Act:

  • Tablet
  • Capsule
  • Concentrated oil
  • Liquid suspension
  • Topical preparation
  • Transdermal preparation
  • Gelatinous cube
  • Unprocessed cannabis flower in blister pack containing no more than 1 gram of flower pods in each individual blister
  • If patient does not respond to two forms listed above, a qualified medical provider may recommend a wax or resin dosage form.
  • Smoking of cannabis is not permitted but patients may purchase a medical cannabis device that warms cannabis material into a vapor without use of a flame and delivers cannabis to an individual’s respiratory system.

SMOKING OF MARIJUANA IS PROHIBITED. Edible products (besides gelatinous cubes) such as candies, cookies, brownies, and unprocessed flowers outside of blister packs are not permitted under Utah Code 26-61a-102 (29)

Most elements of the medical cannabis program, including the issuance of medical cannabis patient cards and the licensing of medical cannabis pharmacies, must be operational by March 1, 2020.  Prior to January 2021, patients are not guilty of use or possession of medical cannabis if at the time of arrest:

  • the individual had been diagnosed with a qualifying condition and had a pre-existing provider-patient relationship with a Utah-licensed APRN, physician, or a physician assistant who believed that the individual’s illness could benefit from the use in question; and
  • the cannabis was in a medicinal dosage form and a legal quantity (58-37-3.7).

Compliance with the Utah Medical Cannabis Act may not protect patients from liability for violations under federal law or the laws of other states.
