How to get medical marijuana through OMMA
Medical marijuana in Oklahoma is exclusive to patients holding a valid medical card. And as mentioned earlier, a marijuana certification from an OMMA approved doctor is necessary for the med card application process.
Getting your marijuana certification through QuickMedCards is easy because you do not even have to leave your couch during your marijuana evaluation. We facilitate online appointments between patients and experienced medical marijuana doctors in Oklahoma. So, once you schedule your appointment, all you need is a stable internet connection and a computer or mobile device with a camera to attend your consultation via a video call.
So, how do you get started? First, fill out this information form and create your account. Next, schedule an online appointment at a time of your convenience. And that is all! The consultation usually lasts 10 to 15 minutes, and if the doctor finds you eligible for medical marijuana, they will certify you shortly after.
It is worth noting that unlike most states with medical marijuana, Oklahoma does not have a list of qualifying conditions for a medical card. Therefore, it is up to the Oklahoma medical marijuana doctor to determine whether you could benefit from cannabis treatment. Often, the doctor will recommend medical marijuana if you suffer from:
- A chronic medical condition whose treatment causes severe, debilitating psychiatric disorders.
- Or a chronic medical illness whose medical treatment may lead to physical or psychological dependence.

OMMA regulations and rules
By having an Oklahoma medical card, patients can lawfully buy and possess medical cannabis in the state. Still, Oklahoma marijuana laws outline restrictions that patients need to be aware of and follow to be law-abiding citizens:
- Patients with a valid Oklahoma medical card can only possess a maximum of 3 ounces on their person and up to 8 ounces for at-home possession.
- Qualified patients can grow up to six flowering plants and six seedlings on their property.
- Oklahoma marijuana law doesn’t consider marijuana paraphernalia, for example, rolling paper, bongs, or tobacco blunts necessary for a patient’s treatment. So, there’s no reason for patients to possess or use these items to create their medication.
- Qualified patients can only buy medical marijuana from state-approved dispensaries. Additionally, the Oklahoma rules for sale and distribution prohibit personal sales. So, patients SHOULDN’T engage with them in any way, shape, or form.
- Hashish-based products or other products made from marijuana concentrates are regarded as Schedule I drugs under Oklahoma marijuana law. But, for medical patients, the legal possession of these products is capped at 1 ounce.
Patients should check out the Oklahoma medical marijuana laws to understand what is tolerated, where it draws the line, and the consequences of breaking the laws.
When did the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) start?
Oklahoma voters approved the Medical Marijuana Legislation Initiative on June 26th, 2018. As a result, Oklahoma became the 30th US state to legalize medicinal cannabis. Subsequently, the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) was formed and charged with enforcing and regulating the newly founded medical marijuana program.
However, not everything has been smooth sailing for the OMMA. You can read more about its recent efforts to implement a seed-to-sale monitoring system through Metrc Cannabis Track stalling due to legal issues here.
