Medical Cannabis In Iowa Now Includes Those With Autistic Conditions Or PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Autism and PTSD are now added to the list of debilitating conditions under which an Iowan can be certified to receive medical cannabis. The bill, known as House File 2589, will now make its way to the Senate. The HF 2589 will soon have a cap of 4.5 grams of THC. The current law lets health care practitioners to certify their patients for CBD products containing less than 3% THC. However, the purchasing limit is different for each health issue. The HF 2589 aims to standardize this by allowing a common dosage of 50 milligrams a day.
Several amendments were offered to raise the cap to 25 grams per 90-day period… Gov. Kim Reynolds has been adamant about capping medical cannabidiol use at no more than 4.5 grams over 90 days.
Klein says that he does not want the bill to be vetoed as being one of the reasons for the 4.5 gram cap. But Rep. John Forbes, a pharmacist, mentioned there are no clinical studies to support this hypothesis. Other changes in the bill include changing “untreatable pain” with “chronic pain”, giving nurses and physical assistants the authority to certify patients for CBD, and removing prohibitions on patients with felony offenses from receiving the medical cannabidiol registration card.
