Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions

Updated on November 26, 2021. Medical content reviewed by Dr. Shatha Atiya.

Oklahoma does not have a specific list of qualifying conditions for patients to qualify for medical marijuana.

Instead, it’s up to the professional judgment of the doctor when recommending patients for medical marijuana.

This means that any patient with a medical condition can apply to get a medical marijuana card in Oklahoma, without being limited to a list of qualifying conditions. Patients still need a medical marijuana recommendation from a board-certified physician in Oklahoma.

To get a recommendation, you can talk to a specialized cannabis doctor about your health problems and how you think medical marijuana can help. The doctor will ask you questions to get an understanding of how severe your symptoms are if the condition is chronic, and what other treatments you’ve tried. Medical marijuana is typically recommended when standard treatment methods have failed.
