Medical cannabis is legal in Oklahoma. Patients may possess up to eight ounces of medical cannabis flower and one ounce of concentrated medical cannabis, and may also cultivate up to six mature plants with another six immature plants. Patients and caregivers may purchase up to three ounces at a time from dispensaries. Oklahoma allows out-of-state patients with a valid medical cannabis card to apply for a 30 day temporary card for a registration fee of $100. Residents of other states who have state-government-issued medical marijuana patient licenses are eligible for Oklahoma’s 30-day adult or minor out-of-state patient licenses. Prescriptions or licenses issued by out-of-state medical providers are not honored for Oklahoma’s out-of-state licenses. Details on how these laws apply to patients and medical professionals can be found below.

Home cultivation is allowed in Oklahoma, for medical cannabis patients. Six mature cannabis plants and six seedlings can be grown in their household.

NOTICE: It can be challenging for patients to determine which businesses offering cannabis products are licensed and approved by the state. Review this list of medical cannabis retailers to find out where to purchase regulated cannabis in Oklahoma.
