To become a patient eligible for CBD under Leni’s Law, the patient must receive a diagnosis for a serious condition that is resistant to conventional medicine from a physician with whom they have a bona-fide physician-patient relationship and the CBD must be likely to provide the patient with therapeutic or palliative relief.

Carly’s Law previously required participation in a University of Alabama clinical trial to become a legal patient.

  • cachexia
  • wasting syndrome;
  • severe or chronic pain;

  • severe and persistent muscle spasms.
  • There is additionally a catchall to include any other condition that is severe and resistant to conventional medicine as an eligible condition.
