Medical cannabidiol registration cards

As of July 1, 2020, the Iowa DOT is no longer issuing medical cannabidiol (CBD) registration cards due to changes to Iowa Code chapter 124E, the Medical Cannabidiol Act. The Iowa Department of Public Health now issues all patient and caregiver medical CBD registration cards. For more information on how to apply for approval to receive a medical CBD card, please visit the Iowa Department of Public Health’s website.

Question mark WHY IS THIS CHANGE BEING MADE?

During the 2020 Iowa legislative session, House File 2589 was passed which provides that customers seeking a CBD card will no longer need to make a separate trip to the DOT to be issued a CBD card, rather, they will complete the whole CBD card process with IDPH.


Question mark WHO SHOULD I CONTACT TO BE ISSUED A MEDICAL CBD CARD?

As of July 1, 2020, the Iowa Department of Public Health is issuing medical CBD cards. The contact information for the IDPH Office of Medical Cannabidiol is:

Phone: 515-725-2076
Fax: 515-725-0615
E-mail: medical.cannabidiol@idph.iowa.gov

Question mark WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO USE MY DOT-ISSUED CBD CARD AFTER JULY 1, 2020?

Yes. All cards issued by the DOT prior to July 1, 2020, will continue to be valid for the 12-month period following issuance, which is the normal validity period for medical CBD cards. In other words, you can continue to use your DOT-issued medical CBD card until it expires.
