Since the passing of SQ 788, Oklahoma has become one of the largest medical marijuana programs in the country. In 2019, Oklahoma's medical cannabis market exploded with growth far outpacing competing markets, such as Illinois, Maryland, and Ohio. With over 200,000 registered cannabis patients, local entrepreneurs rushed to get licensed and operational to supply the increasing demand.
Who knew Oklahoma’s had such an affection for cannabis? 🤔
Oklahoma’s cannabis market is about as close to a free-market economy as possible, which has likely been a contributor to their explosive growth. SQ 788 created an optimal environment for running a business and it’s very patient-friendly too!
Unlike many other state medical marijuana programs, patients in Oklahoma aren’t required to have specific ailments to get their cannabis certification. That’s a huge deal! In Oklahoma, doctors are able to exercise their professional medical opinion rather than having to abide by a list of approved ailments generated by policymakers.
So with the explosion of business and tax revenue, it’s clear that medical cannabis is here to stay. So why not join the thousands of other patients and get started on your medical marijuana card today? Read on to find out what it takes to get one!
Becoming a medical marijuana patient in Oklahoma is much easier than most residents would assume. Thanks to the legislators that crafted SQ 788, Oklahoma has been able to implement a simple and straightforward system to get patients access to cannabis.
You’ll first want to schedule an appointment with a physician and go through a medical cannabis evaluation.
Once your evaluation is complete, you're going to need to complete a medical marijuana application with the state of Oklahoma in order to get your card mailed to you. Most physicians will help you complete the process on-site and help you with any questions you might have on the state application.
Below we took the liberty of providing you a list of physicians that provide medical marijuana evaluations in Oklahoma.

In Oklahoma, it is not mandatory that patients have their cannabis evaluations done at a physical doctor's office. That means that if you want a cannabis evaluation, you don’t have to go into an office to get one—heck, with recent advances in telemedicine, you don’t even have to leave your couch!
NuggMD’s secure online portal allows you to connect with a state-licensed physician in a matter of minutes and conduct your cannabis evaluation right from the comfort of your own home.
The typical cost for a first-time, in-person medical marijuana examination is $150. However, there are other potential associated costs such as:
Plus, we're sure there are other things you’d rather be doing instead of slogging through the snow to sit in a stuffy waiting room.
On top of everything else, you won’t have to sacrifice a high-quality doctor's appointment. Our HIPPA-compliant, telemedicine platform enables convenient, yet thorough evaluations that leave patients feeling informed and empowered to get the medicine they need.
NuggMD provides quick, accessible, and low-cost medical marijuana examinations for only $99!
Once you’ve completed your medical examination and have received a physician certification, you will need to fill out and submit your application for the state license.
The fee for the state’s medical marijuana application is $100. However, if you're on Soonercare, Medicare, or are a disabled veteran, you are eligible to pay a reduced fee of $20. Once you're ready to apply, make sure that you provide documents to prove that you qualify for the reduced fee (i.e., your SoonerCare or Medicare I.D. card or any enrollment documentation.)
Whether you’re paying a reduced rate or the full amount, that fee is to be paid directly to the state department and is a separate cost from the medical evaluation.
