Oklahoma State

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).

License Types

There are six primary business license types in Oklahoma:

A Grower license allows a business to "legally grow marijuana for medical purposes in Oklahoma. Licensed growers can sell to licensed processors and licensed dispensaries only."πŸ”—
A Processor license allows a business to "legally process marijuana for medical purposes in Oklahoma. Licensed processors can sell to licensed dispensaries and other licensed processors. Licensed processors may also process marijuana into a concentrated form for a patient license holder for a fee."πŸ”—
A Dispensary license allows a business to "legally sell medical marijuana and medical marijuana products, including mature plants and seedlings. Licensed dispensaries can only sell to patient license holders, caregiver license holders, research license holders, and the parent or legal guardian named on a minor patient’s license. Dispensaries engaging in unlawful sales may be fined, or their licenses may be revoked."πŸ”—
"A transportation license will be provided with an approved grower, processor, or dispensary license. Licensed transporters can legally transport medical marijuana from a licensed grower, licensed processor, or licensed dispensary to a licensed grower, licensed processor, licensed dispensary, or licensed researcher." πŸ”—
Testing Laboratory
"A Testing Laboratory license is granted by OMMA for a laboratory testing facility to analyze harvested and processed medical use marijuana for the presence of harmful contaminants." πŸ”—
Waste Disposal
A Waste Disposal facility license authorizes licensees to "dispose of medical marijuana. The waste disposal facility licenses also authorizes licensees to transport medical marijuana waste."πŸ”—


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.

Cultivera allows Oklahoma operations to seamlessly transfer to the new tracking system with an intuitive Pre-Metrc environment.
