Contrary to many other medical marijuana state laws, there isn’t not a set list of ‘Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Conditions’ that is used to determine qualifying patients. Instead, it is up to a certified medical marijuana doctor to evaluate if the use of medical marijuana would benefit your health. The doctor will make their judgement on the same basis as they would with regular prescriptions, and write their recommendation accordingly.
It is up to your doctor to evaluate whether medical marijuana is appropriate for your illness or condition. However, if your doctor has refused to recommend medical marijuana treatment, and you feel that such a treatment would benefit your health, it is possible to get a second opinion from a different doctor.

Oklahoma rules for medicinal use of Marijuana
Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug by the federal government, which means that doctors cannot prescribe this drug to their patients because marijuana prescriptions are illegal. Therefore, patients cannot fill a prescription for medical marijuana at a local pharmacy in the traditional way, but must instead obtain a recommendation from a certified medical marijuana doctor that will supply the patient with medical marijuana from a dispensary, in compliance with the law of the state. A dispensary is considered by law to be a different kind of establishment to an ordinary pharmacy, this means that regular prescriptions cannot be filled at a dispensary.
Once you have obtained your Medical Marijuana Card from the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA), you may purchase your medical marijuana from a certified dispensary.
* You must bring your Medical Marijuana ID Card and one more form of photo ID when purchasing medicine from a dispensary.
* Minor Patients must be supervised by their designated caregiver or guardian when purchasing their medicine at a dispensary. Caregivers and Guardians must provide proof of ID when accompanying the Minor Patient.
* The patient and/or their designated caregiver may buy seedlings for home cultivation from a dispensary. A registered patient is allowed up to six (6) seedlings in addition to six (6) mature plants at any given time.
* The patient can only buy seedlings from dispensaries, and are not allowed to purchase directly from any licenced growers.
