About Medical Marijuana in Iowa

Medical marijuana laws in Iowa are stricter than in many other states. Iowa lawmakers established a tight regulation in 2014 that allowed some patients to possess but not use low THC marijuana without risking criminal charges. In 2017 and 2019, the law was considerably amended. The modifications have resulted in a substantially wider list of qualifying diseases, which now include chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In-state access to cannabis preparations is now available in Iowa, and patients are no longer confined to low-THC options.

However, Iowa’s Medical Cannabidiol Program is still one of the most restricted medical marijuana programs, allowing only marijuana products rather than raw marijuana. In the state, just a few manufacturers are approved and home production is prohibited.


Marijuana in its raw form is not permitted. It is also not permitted to smoke. Patients can usually have marijuana products with little more than 4.5 grams of THC once every 90 days. If the patient has a terminal medical condition with a life expectancy of less than a year, or if the patient is not new to the program, and the doctor determines that 4.5 grams are insufficient for the patient, the doctor can allow a specific, greater amount that the doctor deems appropriate.

How can medical marijuana help patients?

Cannabis does not cure or heal all ailments or diseases, but it can undoubtedly assist. Patients who decide to try medicinal marijuana in Iowa have the chance to be among the first to participate in the Iowa MMJ Program.

The anti-inflammatory properties of MMJ can also be extremely beneficial to those who suffer from digestive difficulties such as IBS or Crohn’s disease.
