The Hawaii Cannabis Expo aims to educate the public on the myriad of potential benefits offered by the Cannabis plant and provide attendees with accurate information on how to safely access cannabis in Hawaii as a registered patient. If you need more information on receiving your State of Hawaii 329 registration card, More information from the Department of Health can be found HERE.


Since the year 2000, Hawaii Legislators created the Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Qualifying conditions include: cancer, glaucoma, HIV (+) status, chronic or debilitating disease: Severe pain, severe nausea, seizures (epilepsy), severe & persistent muscle spasms (from Multiple Sclerosis or Crohn’s Disease), severe weakness, malnutrition or weight loss. Effective January 1, 2015, the Hawaii’s Medical Use of Marijuana Program was transferred from the Department of Public Safety to the Department of Health, according to Act 177. The state’s Department of Health will develop administrative rules, including licensing application criteria and regulations, for a medical marijuana dispensary system. Applications will be accepted beginning early 2016. Hawaii has issued eight dispensary licenses and these owners may begin selling medical Cannabis to registered patients soon, according to the Department of Health.
