Becoming a Patient in Oklahoma

If you wish to become a medical cannabis patient in Oklahoma, start by visiting a doctor registered with the state to recommend cannabis. This document lists eligible doctors (PDF). (you do not have to visit a state registered doctor for this recommendation, but your application process will be expedited if you do so.) If they determine that cannabis treatment is appropriate for you, they will fill out a physician recommendation form. You must be sure to complete your application within 30 days of receiving this form.

You will have to submit a valid government issued photo ID. An Oklahoma drivers licence or photo ID, US passport, or tribal identification card. You will also need to submit a photo for the ID card. The photo provided with the application must:

  • be taken within the last 6 months.
  • Stand or sit straight and still while taking the photo.
  • Face the camera directly, at eye level before taking the photo so your full face is visible.
  • Photos must be taken vertically (not sideways/horizontally). Once uploaded to the application system, crop in a square.
  • Use a plain white or off-white background in the picture.
  • Photos must have a neutral facial expression (mouth closed, eyes open).
  • The photo must be comparable to the proof of identity (such as a driver's license) also being submitted.
  • Resolution Limits: Minimum: 600 x 600 pixels. Maximum: 1200 x 1200 pixels.
  • File Format: .jpg, .png, or .gif and no larger than 3 MB in size

You will have to prove your residency in Oklahoma if the address on your ID is not your Oklahoma residence address. You can do this by providing a utility bill for the calendar month before the application submission date, the residential deed to an Oklahoma address, or a current rental agreement in Oklahoma.

There is an application fee of $100. If you can provide proof of your enrollment in Medicare or your status as a 100% disabled veteran, the fee can be reduced to $20. The fee is paid by credit card online when the application is submitted.

When you have everything ready, you can apply for a medical marijuana license here.

Eligible conditions:

There is no list of qualifying conditions in Oklahoma. Physicians shall use the same judgement they would for regular prescriptions when recommending cannabis.

Becoming a Patient as a Minor:

If you are under 18 years of age and wish to become a cannabis patient, the process is similar to that for adult patients detailed above; however, you will have to designate a parent or legal guardian as a caregiver. In place of a photo ID, you may submit your birth certificate. For details, visit the Minor Patient Application Information page.

Benefits of Being a Patient:

As a registered patient in Oklahoma you will have an affirmative defense in court if you are arrested for the possession of cannabis.

Becoming a Caregiver:

If you wish to become a caregiver in Oklahoma, The Physician Recommendation Form attached to the patient's application must include certification of his or her need for a caregiver. Once this has been completed, you can fill out the caregiver application. You will need to be able to provide all of the same information detailed above in the "Becoming a patent" section.

Out of State Patients:

Oklahoma does not recognize out of state patient registrations. For more information about traveling as a medical cannabis patient, check out our Travel Guide.

Home Cultivation:

Currently, Oklahoma law allows a patient card holder to have six mature plants and six immature plants. The plants must be in a secure location out of sight from the general public. If you are a renter, you must also have written permission from your landlord.
