Prior to the launch of our Out-of-State patient process, qualifying patients may submit an application through the In-State process so long as they meet our eligibility requirements. Program staff will not accommodate patients based on travel dates.

Please be reminded that in order to purchase medical cannabis from a dispensary in Hawaii and to be afforded protections under our medical cannabis laws, you must be registered with our program. Although there is no residency requirement, the program is designed to serve qualifying individuals that reside in the state of Hawaii.
