CUB Cannabis Use Recommendations

Updated 10/6/2021


The Compassionate Use Board (CUB) is comprised of seven qualified medical providers who have been appointed by the Executive Director of the Utah Department of Health and confirmed by the Utah State Senate.


The CUB reviews and recommends for department approval a petition to the CUB submitted by:

  1. patients under age 21 applying for medical cannabis cards; and
  2. any patient who does not have a qualifying condition but who has an intractable condition that:
    • substantially impairs the individual’s quality of life; and
    • has not, in the qualified medical provider’s professional opinion, adequately responded to conventional treatments. 


When the CUB reviews applications, the CUB does not meet in-person or over the phone with the patient or their qualified medical provider (QMP). They review relevant information submitted by the patient and QMP. Board meetings are not public meetings and no one other than Board members and authorized department staff will attend the meetings. Information shared and discussed at the meetings is kept private and not shared with parties outside of those who attend the meetings.      

Once a complete petition is received, there is a 90-day period for the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) to complete the review. If you are unable to send us the required documentation by the due date you may send us an email to request an extension, otherwise, your request will be closed as incomplete.
