Becoming a Caregiver, Producer or Provider in Arkansas

Caregivers

Similar to patients, designated caregivers must also register with the Arkansas Department of Health for a ID card. When applying for an ID card, the caregiver must submit their own information and the information of the patient they will be assisting. The caregiver must also submit a signed statement that they will not divert cannabis to people other than their qualifying patient.

A caregiver must be above the age of 21 (unless they are a parent of a qualifying patient) and have not been convicted of certain felony offenses.
