Hemp Registry

During the 2014 Legislative Session, Utah lawmakers passed HB 105 allowing Utah residents, or their dependents, who are being treated for intractable epilepsy to possess hemp extract as a means of treating their disease. Anyone wishing to legally possess hemp extract under Utah state law must obtain a hemp extract registration card from the Utah Department of Health.

The Department began issuing cards on July 8, 2014 at its main office located at 288 North 1460 West (Garside Ave.) in Salt Lake City.

Applicants for hemp extract registration cards must submit a completed application packet to the Office of Vital Records and Statistics. A complete application packet includes:
