Cannabidiol Registry

In 2017, the Indiana General Assembly passed legislation requiring the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) to establish a registry of individuals who have been diagnosed by a neurologist as having treatment-resistant epilepsy. The law provides individuals on the registry with defenses to prosecution of the crime of possession of a substance containing cannabidiol and allegations of certain conditions found in IC 16-42-28.6-10.  In order to qualify for the registry, individuals must:

  • Be a patient or caregiver;
  • Provide proof of Indiana residency;
  • Provide a certified statement by an Indiana-licensed physician certified in neurology that the patient or a patient in the care of the caregiver has been examined and diagnosed by the physician to have treatment-resistant epilepsy;

-“Treatment-resistant epilepsy" means:

  • Dravet syndrome;
  • Lennox-Gastaut syndrome;
  • Another form of epilepsy in a patient who has not responded to at least two of the epilepsy treatment options that have been provided in good faith.
  • Complete application, which will be provided by the ISDH; and
  • Pay a $50 registration fee in accordance with IC 16-42-28.6-7.

A fillable registration form can be downloaded here.

Completed registration packets can be mailed, along with payment, to:
Indiana State Department of Health

Individuals who wish to pay by credit card can do so here.

Please note that all credit card payments will incur a processing fee of $1 plus 2 percent of the total.

Registrants can expect to receive a card confirming registration within two weeks after ISDH receives a completed packet and payment.
