Cannabis in Iowa state refers to the medical cannabis in Iowa, United States, where only CBD only Oil and 3-4% THC oil is legal. However, it is a passed bill with no access. (2015-2017) Possession of even small amounts is a misdemeanor crime; however, in contrast with some other states, in Iowa even repeated possession arrests, and for any quantity, provided it is personal and not for distribution, remain misdemeanors and not felonies. CBD oil, however, is allowed to be used to treat a limited number of medical conditions.

From late 1979 to mid-1981, Iowa's administrative rules allowed for medical use of marijuana through a therapeutic research center.[8]

In 1980 research for cancer, Melphalan chemotherapy, and marijuana was conducted at the University of Iowa Hospital. One of the study participants Lynnice Wedewer, Ph.D. is still alive and living in Cedar Rapids, IA. Though her identity has been protected as a federal research study participant, she has battled cancer successfully today 8 times by ingesting concentrated marijuana oil and inhaling marijuana. She is grandfathered into marijuana treatments for life and currently beating her 9th cancer battle, with marijuana as her chemotherapy. She is legal to ingest full extract cannabis oil, take inhalation therapy, and other techniques utlized in her federal case. Iowa cirrent laws do not change her federal status. All this is documented in her medical records. Lynn is highly allergic to all chemo-therapies. She was in three such studies at the University of Iowa Hospital and marijuana was incorporated into her cancer care plan. (Melphalan, Alkeran, and Leukeran). She has spoken out to legislators in an effort to help others.
