The Utah Department of Health (UDOH) initially announced 14 Utah medical marijuana dispensary licenses. We previously wrote about the gap between Medical Cannabis recommendations and actually using cannabis in Utah earlier in the year. News outlets in Utah including KSL also wrote articles about the UDOH dispensary announcement, publishing the locations and businesses that received approval.

  1. I am in a lot of pain from 13 anchors in 1 shoulder a torn labrum in the other shoulder, countless problems with my spine and I can’t take pills because of kidney failure a few years back. I was on narcotics for 15 years of my life and took myself off of them? if I ever take them again it will be no more than a three day period so that is no permanent solution for me. I’ve already talked to my doctor, she did not feel comfortable giving me a recommendation nor did she know who to direct me too. I have not had insurance for a long time and when I’m able to go to the doctor it’s paying cash. I do have proof of these issues I speak of and surgeries but no active doctor for quite some time now. With this whole coronavirus garbage my husband lost his job and we have now been able to qualify for Medicaid?? yay I can go to the doctor….. nope…. still not ? this coronavirus garbage has pushed back any normal check ups let alone new patient visits so far that by the time I get to be seen by a doctor I will no longer even have insurance . I’m in desperate need of a medical card and not sure how to go about it where to go or what to do please help

    • Hey there, Crystal. It definitely sounds like you would benefit greatly from the use of medical marijuana. We would love to help you get some relief. You are welcome to call our office (Utah Marijuana) at 801-851-5554 to schedule an appointment to get you your letter and card. Alternatively, you may schedule online at Hope to hear from you soon!

  2. You can call your doctor and ask him for a medical marijuana referral letter and register at the dispensary in salt lake with it. We will have to have a medical card eventually but not all doctors have enlisted on the website. When you do get a card go to udoh and go to medical marijuana link and fill out the application and then your doctor will have to fill.out the second half on line. Then you should have a medical card but for know you only need a letter.

    • While this is true, here at we have five physicians registered with the DOH that are able to get you your letter AND your card. Should you ever be interested in that, give us a call at 801-851-5554 or schedule at We hope to hear from you!

  3. I have the letter from my doctor for medical marijuana, why is it so hard to fill out form on internet to get the card! FRUSTRATED in Utah county

    • Keep after it , the form that is. I had to go back in and fix errors 3 times one was I had the wrong county second I had a zero as a leading number on my drivers license and can’t remember the last one . Once I had them fixed it only took them a couple of days to ok it! Don’t give up and good luck . I got my card but still am waiting for a ride to a dispensary.

  4. I have my card, but can’t figure out where I can actually get what I need. I’m in the midst of a major UC flair up (thanks Covid-19 stress & sick kids) & I could use the relief I had when I was in CA. I’m in Utah county. Anything open yet?! Help.

    • Hey Mindee, unfortunately there are not any pharmacies operating in Utah County as of yet. There are plans for a few to pop up down there this summer, but we do not have exact dates yet. The three operating pharmacies in Utah at the moment are Dragonfly Wellness in downtown Salt Lake City and Perfect Earth, with locations in North Logan and South Ogden. I hope this information helps!

  5. My daughter is 20 years old and has seizure disorder that started two years ago. She works with a neurologist and has tried various medications with little success. Recently the seizure activity has intensified. We would like to try MMJ. Are there doctors in Utah that not only provide the letter/card, but also can help us understand what strains/products are most likely to help her specific problem?

    • Absolutely there are! We have seven providers that fill all of those requirements that I am happy to schedule her with. However, due to her age, there will be an additional process needed to get her approved for medical cannabis use. I am happy to explain this in further detail if you’d like to give our office a call at 801-851-5554.

    • My 30 year old son needs an advocate 24 -7 that is high functioning and able to understand every aspect of seizure control , diabetic control , celiac and a multitude of autoimmune disorders and how to balance these afflictions. Remember you are your best advocate , have confidence in decisions and get all the up to date info – don’t stop looking. First find all the trigger mechanisms that’s setting off the seizures. No artificial sweeteners – certain musics – flickering fluorescent lights the list goes on and on.- no stress plenty of rest- the ketogenic diet. This is what was used before drugs became available. This keto plan is loosely put together and can be tailored to fit the needs of the individual. Coconut oil is a good place to start. Then after that the prescribed meds from the neurologist . To find the right one or combo of drugs. Stay close with the Primary care and neuro because we need them so we’re covered on the whole physiological aspect . MMJ can also fit into influencing the seizure disorder. It comes with baggage like whether to smoke it ,eat it or vape it . For myself I’m not high functioning enough to navigate through all the regulation and time consuming formalities so other people have come to his rescue and help. MMJ reduces the duration , intensity and frequency of the seizures. It is totally life saving . Without it a very defeated person would struggle to cope. More research and what works best is needed. May the guts and glory be with you. C.L.

  6. With only one operating dispensary, which is eternally out of stock, you may want to look at other pain-relieving alternatives for the time being. I have been forced to use some of the most powerful opioid pain medications for close to 20 years of my life due to numerous injuries leaving me with extreme chronic pain, not to mention an incredibly rare type of migraine headache known as Vestibular Migraine Headache, and the pain shames all of my pain sources combined; sadly cannabis is the only way for me to get any pain relief for them. Opioid pain medication triggers migraine headaches and for myself will often put me into a massive series of repeating migraine headache. I have suffered from this condition for 35 years now. This is whole process in Utah has been one HUGE dropping of the proverbial ball for me, bordering on cruelty. The way in which this entire process has been handled has been beyond disappointing and has taken an absurd amount of time considering what was stated by our Governor, saying something to the effect that if marijuana dispensaries weren’t open for patient use by last July he would simply legalize the medicine across the board when we voted to legalize and it passed; which clearly has not happened. I have been working to get off the opioids despite incredibly horrible withdrawals and severe pain because I have always hated the way pain pills make me feel and I know that I will suffer organ failure at some point if I can’t stop taking them. Cannabis is a miracle medicine for someone like me as it can actually serve as a replacement for opioids and could save me from dying much younger than I should have to. I made a big mistake to trust that this would all be done to the best benefit of patients, as we were told when a number of delays originally occurred, and I have to say that at this rate it feels as though all these issues have been intentional. Regardless, due to poor planning, not to mention the good intentions of the people that actually run our state, the result has been a horrible nightmare of an experience. I got my medical card months ago and it has been next to pointless. This is simply too much to put people through. The access to this medicine could easily be made available to patients as it was in Colorado and other states for years now and was rolled out in a remarkably short amount of time. I was born and have lived in Utah for my entire life and hoped to die here and I honestly regret not moving to California many years ago. Cannabis is the safest and most beneficial medicine available to humankind for many reasons and yet patients like myself are still suffering horribly for no real reason. Please, I am begging you all to do something about this extremely serious issue.

    • Hey Ben! We get it, there are a great deal of pain points in the program that have yet to be ironed out. I am happy to report that there are actually three operating dispensaries in the state, however. We are aware that the flower stock at the Salt Lake dispensary is scarce and hard to come by, but Perfect Earth in Ogden and Logan do not run out. We know this is not an answer people love to hear, but there is legal access to medication in all forms somewhere in the state. We also are supposed to get 11 more medical cannabis dispensaries in the state before year end, which will of course help with supply and demand. As the medical cannabis program in Utah is fairly new (not even four months old,) we can only assume things will get better from here on!

  7. Here is a huge problem….. 90% of patients and non patients in southern utah area have to risk federal charges to get anything resembling cannabis medicine because most people are retired or disabled and can not make the long expensive trek to Salt Lake City. Which I find to be rather discriminatory and I’m sure that could be fought in a court of law. The openings should be more spread out and at least one in southern utah. People have literally paid $300 or more just to qualify and can not use the card unless they go up to salt lake. If a person has paid this money and not been able to use the card, every single card holder renewal time should be extended because most people don’t know there isn’t a pharmacy in Saint George or Cedar until they go to use it and search locations. Unfair, discriminatory practices. It’s all about controlling the spice.

    • Hey Ana! We agree, it is quite unfortunate that there are not medical cannabis dispensaries in Southern Utah. Rest assured some are coming! We are supposed to have a total of fourteen in the state soon, of course only three are operating as of now. We can only hope that as this is a new program, things can only go up from here. Don’t give up hope! We are confident this will start working in favor of the patient very soon.

  8. My doctor is unable to ok my certification on the state’s website. I have shown “waiting on certification” since the beginning of March. And it’s June. He cannot verify ANY of his patients and all the state says is “It appears that your doctor does not want to do this. You need to find another doctor.” He is frustrated because the state’s website is useless. I’m frustrated because I registered my letter at the SLC dispensary and now I am limited to ONLY using that location. Do you know if the State is EVER going to get it together?????

    • Judy, I have to admit — it does sound like the state is right here. If your provider has registered with the state as a qualified medical provider and taken the appropriate courses, he should have no trouble certifying you. It sounds like maybe he does not know how or does not have appropriate access to certify you. He needs to reach out to the state (801-538-6504) to get access and help. If he is not willing to do this for you and his other patients, we’d be happy to take you on as a patient of ours. We have successfully gotten 600+ patients of our practice certified and active with their cards in hand and we would be happy to do the same for you. Should you need a new qualified medical provider, you can always call us at 801-851-5554 to learn more and establish care with us.

  9. I might have to check out NMC. Will they do telegram the appointments for people living in Southern Utah? I have my card but can’t use it and paid just under 300 for a card I have yet to use and I have to renew in August for 150 plus card fee and again 3 months after that and the renewal is $75 but none of that helps if there are no dispensaries except in SLC. It’s like throwing money in the trash and the state should be responsible for that. If they see a person clearly hasn’t been able to use their card they should extend the time until a local dispensary is open in southern utah. One In Cedar City told me they “might” be open Around Christmas time and the other one in Saint George doesn’t respond to emails or comments asking when it will open. If I already have a recommendation from a amp can I SWITCH to NMC for the renewal or would I have to start over? And is it really good for an entire year? I’m totally down with that. I have two other cards for two other states and they are both for a year and only 50 to renew. If you have a qualifying condition in California and your a veteran they double check your condition and it is automatic that veterans get approved.

      • Jenny, to answer that, you’d have to speak to a QMP in St. George to see if they are comfortable with a telehealth appointment. A lot of providers are not as we are dealing with a schedule 1 drug. It is true that there will be dispensaries in Southern Utah soon, but with COVID, their timeline may have been extended. California’s medical cannabis program has been around for many, many years. While it is possible that we will soon get there, Utah’s medical cannabis program is a mere 4 months old and we have not reached the seamless part of the program quite yet, but we will! Your Utah card will not be valid for 12 months until after your first year. First card is 90 days, next two are 6 months, then I believe it is valid for a year at a time. Again, because this is a new program, all of this is subject to change.

  10. I agree with the previous commenter. Seems fishy so few dispensaries are open and only concentrated to salt lake. Is there a way to investigate the state of utah for its delay in opening dispensaries further down south? Does anyone know of any lawsuits pending? I think there is a lot more to the delay than Covid-19 and bad company choices for computer security.

    • There are no lawsuits pending, to our knowledge. Another dispensary opens in Bountiful in the next week or so. That’ll bring us to four! It’s a very strange year for a program opening, I will give you that one. Rest assured that when dispensaries do open up, we’ll let you know here!

  11. Hello, a very useful source indeed. Thank you for your efforts. Now, my question is about – Cannabis .Cannabis – Indicates where can you buy Cannabis for recreational purposes, mean that buy the seeds? If I want to know about the possibility to plant the THC free plants for commercial purposes?

    • As of now, it is not legal to grow your own marijuana plants at all. Marijuana use is also not recreational in Utah, I believe you have been misinformed. Medical use with a letter of recommendation or card is all that is allowed under Utah law. I’m not quite sure what you mean by THC free plants, but I can confidently tell you that marijuana plants with THC are not permitted for citizens to grow. Perhaps I could answer your question a bit better with some more information. Feel free to call our office at 801-851-5554 to speak to our cannabis experts and let’s clear this up!

  12. Very interesting to see Utah advancing the medical cannabis market. This could be one step closer to lifting Utah regulations on cannabis delivery especially during this time of social distancing.

    • You can say that again! The status of home delivery has been “coming soon!” for months. Whenever it does go live in Utah, we’ll be sure to post about it on our social media channels so be sure to keep an eye out!

  13. The legal status of CBD, as well as the regulations that govern both the medical and recreational use of cannabis, are constantly changing in most countries in the world.
    • As the therapeutic potential of the plant becomes increasingly evident, more and more countries are relaxing their laws on cannabis cultivation, production, and distribution of derivatives

  14. So far it’s a joke. I’ve been legal since March, spent over $300 and haven’t been able to access anything in southern utah. Now it’s time for me to renew everything, spend hundreds more and no access. (Not spending the money for no product) No I’m not going to Nevada, still a federal offense. Some of us care about that and yes, salt lake but no because it is too far and my body can’t make that drive.

    • Ashley, we feel your pain. While there hasn’t been a dispensary opening in Southern Utah yet, rest assured that St. George is slotted to get one, as well as Cedar City. I know this doesn’t help you now, and we are truly sorry for that. You deserve access and to feel better. I recommend reaching out to your provider and seeing if you can push your follow-up appointment/renewal out a few weeks or months until it will benefit you and you’ll actually have a pharmacy to visit. It’s important to remember that every Medical Cannabis program starts with some bumps in the road, regardless of the state. We can only hope that these kinks will be ironed out sooner rather than later, but know that they will be eventually. Don’t give up hope on Medical Cannabis just yet!
