What Do I Need to Do to Legally Manufacture Medical Cannabidiol in Iowa? 

The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) is authorized to select and license up to two manufacturers to possess, cultivate, harvest, transport, package, process, and supply medical cannabidiol within the state. The licensed medical cannabidiol manufacturers must agree to begin supplying medical cannabidiol to licensed dispensaries in Iowa no later than December 1, 2018.

The first manufacturer license was issued to MedPharm Iowa, LLC, on December 1, 2017, through a competitive bid process.  The documents associated with that bid are located below.  The Department reserves the right to re-issue a competitive bid for the second license. This would likely occur later in spring 2018, after a bid for the dispensaries has been completed.
