Updated 2020 Guide to Getting Your Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Patient License

Unlike many other states, getting a medical cannabis card in Oklahoma is relatively a quick and simple process. But don't expect to get it overnight as it is still a process. Follow these steps to apply for a medical card in Oklahoma.

How to Apply for Medical Marijuana in Oklahoma

Here are the steps showing everything you will need and what it takes to apply for medical marijuana in Oklahoma. The program is easy to apply for, so make sure and check out all the steps if you'd like to use marijuana medicinally.

Step one: Find a doctor who will recommend medical cannabis

This step is pretty straight forward. You need to find a doctor that is participating in the program and is familiar with the program.

Just to be clear, Not all doctors are required to participate in the medical marijuana program. If you current doctor doesn't participate it's not really hard to find those that do simply head over to Weedmaps or Leafly to find a list of doctors that do participate but there is a much larger list if you head over to the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority website to find an updated list of physicians who do make recommendations.

Some dispensaries do patient drives, with medical professionals on-site to consult with potential patients. Some others have referral programs where they’ll send a patient to a doctor familiar with medical cannabis, and then reimburse the patient for any cost associated during their first visit.

Step two: Visit The Doctor

At the appointment, bring a blank copy of the OMMA’s Physician Recommendation Form and be prepared to have a conversation about why you’re looking to get a medical marijuana card.

Qualifying conditions for a medical marijuana card in Oklahoma

This is simple, unlike most states that have a strict list of prequalifying conditions in Oklahoma you do not have to have any. There is no list of state-approved qualifying conditions in Oklahoma.

Note: This process is for Oklahoma residents that are 18 years or older. Oklahoma residents that are looking for a medical recommendation for a minor there is a separate process that requires a second opinion and recommendation and information from the parent or caregiver.
