Medical cannabis is finally legal in Utah! Currently, there are 13 diagnoses Utahn’s can have in which we can recommend medical cannabis. Even though it is legal in Utah, there are still a lot of hoops you will have to jump through. We have the experience to help you get through the legal barriers and red tape to get the care you deserve. 

The first step is to be evaluated by a Qualified Medical Provider (QMP). Dr. Wightman is one of few physicians designated as a QMP, but more importantly, he is one of the only board certified Internal Medicine trained physicians accepting patients at this time. You will need to undergo a full medical evaluation and physical exam. There will be laboratory tests needed as well.

Once you meet with Dr. Wightman, and if you qualify under current laws, we will help you make sure you get your medical cannabis card from the State of Utah Department of Health. There are databases that you will need to be registered with, and Dr. Wightman, as a QMP has authorization to register you. 

Only after all those steps are performed are you allowed to register with the Utah Department of Health. This step can be done in the comfort of your home. There will be a fee placed by the State, but once you pay you will be sent an electronic certificate or “Cannabis Card”. 

This is a complicated process, but we have the training and ability to assist you every step along the way. So, schedule an appointment with Dr. Wightman today!
