Becoming a Patient in Kentucky
You can become a patient simply by obtaining a written order for CBD from a physician practicing at a hospital or associated clinic affiliated with a Kentucky public university having a college or school of medicine. Alternatively, one can also be a patient in Kentucky by participating in a clinical trial or in an expanded access program, in which case the patient receives a drug or substance approved for the use of those participants by the United States Food and Drug Administration; however, the law is vague and does not provide any more guidance than that.
Conditions eligible for cannabis oil treatment are entirely subjective to the doctor.
Becoming a Patient as a Minor:
The process for becoming a patient as a minor in Kentucky is the same as that of an adult.
Benefits of Being a Patient:
As a patient, you will have an affirmative defense for the possession of cannabis oil.
Out of State Patients:
Kentucky does not recognize out of state registrations. For more information about traveling as a medical cannabis patient, check out our Travel Guide.
Growing cannabis at home is illegal in the state of Kentucky.
