The Legal Cannabis Market in Oklahoma
Oklahoma state legalized medical marijuana in 2018, and currently cannabis is legal for possession and use for medicinal purposes with a state-issued license.
With hundreds of Oklahoma growers and processors already onboarded with Cultivera Pro, the state has quickly become our fastest growing market.
Oklahoma was once considered the "Wild West" of cannabis because of its lack of traceability. But in 2020, the OMMA announced the adoption of the Metrc track-and-trace platform as its official traceability solution. However, while Metrc is still the state-chosen track-and-trace system as of June 2021, its future in Oklahoma remains unclear.
The OK cannabis market is regulated by The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA). The OMMA was established to oversee the Oklahoma medical marijuana program, and is responsible for licensing, regulating, and administering the program according to state law.
Operating under the Oklahoma State Department of Health, their goal is to ensure safe and responsible practices within the Oklahoma cannabis industry.
On the other hand, all Grower, Processor, and Dispensary applicants must also register with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control (OBNDD) platform after receiving a license from OMMA, as required by OAC 475:10-1-9(a).
There are six primary business license types in Oklahoma:
Previously referred to as the "Wild West of Weed" for its lack of seed to sale tracking, the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) recently chose to adopt Metrc as their official traceability system, and the state is currently in the process of transitioning to the Metrc platform.
Metrc is the most commonly used compliance management solution state regulatory bodies have adopted for the oversight of their local marijuana markets. The system is built to help state regulatory offices manage legal cannabis traceability information and reporting throughout the supply chain.
