Becoming a Patient in Wisconsin

If you are an individual who has been diagnosed with a seizure disorder, you may be eligible to become a cannabis patient in Wisconsin. This is the only condition which qualifies an individual for cannabis use in the state. There is no application process to become a patient under AB 726. A physician's written recommendation is all that is necessary for a patient to be legally allowed to possess and administer CBD products under AB 726; however, there is not a clear way for patients to obtain such products.
