Medical Marijuana Doctors in Iowa

Iowa allows patients in need to get cannabidiol (CBD) medicine from licensed dispensaries, but they must be certified by a doctor and apply for a medical marijuana card before they can purchase it. Cannabis-friendly doctors across Iowa offer compassionate care. These listings show you where to find them in a single directory.

Who Qualifies for Iowa Medical Marijuana?

Patients over 18 can apply for a CBD registration card if they have one of the following conditions:

What Can Doctors Recommend?

Physicians can certify patients to use a variety of CBD products, including tinctures and pills, but they cannot recommend a specific dosage. Instead, a dispensary staff member works together with the patient to find a solution. Your doctor will not prescribe cannabis medicine to you because marijuana prescriptions are illegal under federal law.

How Do I Register for Iowa Medicinal Cannabis?

Signing up for a medical marijuana card takes a few simple steps:

  1. Visit a Doctor: Ask them to fill out the sections of the official state application meant for physicians.
  2. Submit Your Application: Remember to include all the request documents and the fee in cash or check.
  3. Pick up Your Card: Visit your closest driver’s license center to get your new patient ID.

Why Search for a Marijuana-Positive Doctor?

Any licensed physician can certify a patient for Iowa cannabis medicine. However, getting help from a doctor with a marijuana-positive viewpoint can enhance your experience. Cannabis-friendly physicians offer:

  • A Judgment-Free Environment: Many doctors still don’t view marijuana as a viable medicine. Even if they do recommend medicinal cannabis, they can sometimes make a patient feel judged. A physician who openly talks about their compassionate care will support your decision.
  • Specialized Experience: Marijuana-friendly doctors come from a wide range of disciplines. You can opt for a general practitioner, or you can find a specialist who treats your condition. All the options on this page will provide top-quality care.
  • Industry Knowledge: Iowa does not require doctors to go through special training before certifying patients. However, many physicians who dedicate themselves to medical marijuana treatment keep up with industry updates.

Where Do I Get Medicine?

Once you get a medicinal marijuana card from the state, you can buy medicine. At the time of writing, a total of five dispensaries sell medical cannabis in Iowa. They have locations evenly distributed around the state, so you have a good chance of finding one near you. Keep in mind that not every part of Iowa has a dispensary nearby, so research your options before getting a card.
