Which Conditions Qualify for Medicinal Cannabis Treatment Under Oklahoma Law?

While most medical marijuana state laws include a list of qualifying conditions, Oklahoma does not. According to State Question 788, the proposed medical marijuana law approved by voters, doctors shall recommend licenses using the same judgment they would for prescriptions. In other words, a doctor can write a recommendation for any condition they see fit for medicinal cannabis treatment.

This law leaves the discretion up to the doctor, not state authorities. While one physician may consider medical marijuana appropriate for an illness, another one might not. If you feel that you could benefit from cannabis medicine and your doctor refuses to recommend it, you can visit another physician for a second opinion.

Since they have more research supporting their responsiveness to medicinal marijuana, these conditions commonly get approval from state programs and marijuana-friendly doctors:

Access to Oklahoma Cannabis Medicine

Some patients mistakenly claim that their doctor gave them a prescription for marijuana. However, cannabis prescriptions are illegal under federal law. Instead, the medical marijuana industry uses the terms “recommendation” and “dispensary.” You get a recommendation from a doctor, which you then fill at a dispensary, which is considered an entirely different establishment from a pharmacy. Other medical patients can’t fill prescriptions there.

Once you have a medicinal cannabis card from the OMMA, you may visit any certified dispensary to buy medicine. The patient or caregiver has to show their medical marijuana ID and another form of identification when they buy medicine. Minor patients must make a purchase with the supervision of their guardian, who also has to show identification. These same rules apply when a patient goes to a processor to process marijuana into concentrate.

Patients and their caregivers may also buy seedlings from a dispensary to grow at home. A registered patient can have up to six seedlings and six mature plants at once. You cannot buy seedlings directly from a licensed grower. Instead, the grower brings them to dispensaries, which then sell them to patients.
