​As part of his effort to reduce Kentuckians' reliance on addictive opioids and provide them with relief from severe and chronic pain, Gov. Andy Beshear signed Senate Bill 47 on March 31, 2023, which legalizes medical cannabis in the commonwealth effective Jan. 1, 2025.

This website contains general information about the Kentucky Medical Cannabis Program and will provide additional information regarding patient and practitioner registration, business licenses, medical cannabis products, and more as it becomes available.

We thank you for your interest and look forward to sharing more information as the Cabinet for Health and Family Services implements this program.​
