Committed to Patients
The Utah PatientsSubsidy Program
We are dedicated to improving the lives of patients in Utah by advocating for natural, safe, and effective treatments. We recognize that the cost of medical cannabis can be a financial burden for many patients, which is why we created the Utah Patient Subsidy Program. This program is made possible by the commitment and generosity of local Utah business leaders, including medical professionals, manufacturers, and retail pharmacies. Our subsidy program is an integral part of our mission to support the needs of medical cannabis patients and improve the overall quality of care in Utah.
We invite you to join us in our mission to legalize plant medicine and improve the health and wellbeing of Utah’s communities. Together, we can make a difference and create a brighter, healthier future for all patients.
