The Georgia Department of Public Health manages a Low THC Oil Registry to provide qualified Georgia patients and their caregivers with a personalized Low THC Oil identification card. This effort is dictated by Georgia House Bill 1.
This webpage provides information for the general public, physicians, and law enforcement. Please take a moment to review all of the resources on this page, especially the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) sections.
The basic steps to obtaining a card are as follows:
- Patients and caregivers of patients who believe they may be eligible should consult with their physician about the possibility of obtaining a Low THC Oil Card allowing them to possess 20 fluid ounces of Low THC Oil within the State of Georgia.
- If approved by the physician, the patient and/or patient’s caregivers’ information will be entered into DPH’s secure “Low THC Oil Registry” and a Low THC Oil Card will be issued to the patient and/or caregiver. Physicians are able to complete registration online – Physicians Register Here.
- Patients and caregivers will be notified when the cards are ready for pickup (within 15 business days) from one of 18 public health offices that distribute Low THC Oil Cards.
- Check Low THC Oil Card Status: The following link will provide a way for physicians and patients on the Low THC Oil Registry to view the stage of development of their Low THC Oil card – Check Card Status.
The Low THC Oil Registry Cards cost twenty-five dollars. The Low THC Oil Card is valid for two years from the date of issue. After that time, cardholders will need to again consult with their physician about their continued eligibility and to request that the physician update and confirm the accuracy of personal information in the registry.
Low THC Oil Forms
These forms will need to be completed by an individual’s physician. Physicians should maintain the original copy of the Low THC Oil Waiver. The contents of the Low THC Oil Certification Form will need to be put into the Low THC Oil Registry.
Note: Low THC oil registry cards may be picked up from the Clarke County Health Department’s Vital Records office.
