Everything you need to know about Oklahoma Medical Marijuana

We Believe Cannabis is Medication

As a licensed Oklahoma Medical Marijuana dispensary, it is our responsibility to help people gain their MMJ patient card and educate them about cannabis and how their mind and body might react to different strains and products.

How do I get a Medical Marijuana Card?

Before a patient can receive a medical marijuana card to purchase legal cannabis, they are required by law to receive a written medical recommendation from a licensed physician. 

If you are seeking a medical recommendation from a licensed professional, Growing Wellness invites a doctor every two weeks to meet with patients and discuss their health and wellbeing.

After you receive a written recommendation from a licensed professional, you will need to complete the rest of your application through the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority.

What’s the Difference Between THC & CBD?

THC

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is typically the most common cannabinoid found in medical marijuana.

THC is a psychoactive compound that produces a “high” when interacting with your body’s cannabinoid receptors.

CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is typically the second-most common cannabinoid found in medical marijuana.

Unlike THC, CBD is not intoxicating and doesn’t produce a “high” like THC.

How do You Consume Marijuana?

Flower

Marijuana flower is typically ground up or shredded and then inserted into a device to be ignited and inhaled.

Typically, flower is burned in a hand pipe, water pipe, rolling papers, or vaporizers.

Flower’s effect on the user is almost immediately felt, but “wears off” quicker than edibles.

Edibles

Any food or drink that contains cannabis as an ingredient is an edible.

Edibles tend to take longer to “kick in,” but when they do, their effects on the user last longer and usually feel stronger than the effects one would receive through inhalation.

Concentrate

Any oil, concentrate, or extract developed from marijuana flower being broken down and processed is considered a “concentrate.”

Concentrates can be ingested orally or inhaled and come in many forms: hash, wax, capsules, shatter, tinctures just to name a few.

Topicals

Lotions, balms, and essential oils infused with cannabis concentrates are known as topicals.

These items are the most unique out of the marijuana consumption methods, because the user’s skin absorbs the oils and relays it to the body’s bloodstream.

Topicals are great for treating pain, stiffness and other body aches.

What are the Marijuana Laws in Oklahoma?

Laws

After Oklahoma State Question 788 was signed into law on June 26, 2018, Oklahoma became the 30th state in the US to legalize medical marijuana.

Since this industry is uncharted territory for the state, laws and statutes regulating medical marijuana are ever evolving. However, there are few mainstays to become familiar with:

  •  Applicants must be over the age of 18 and receive a signed recommendation from a board-certified physician to obtain a license.
  •  Applicants under the age of 18 need two signed recommendations and their parent or legal guardian to obtain a license.
  •  License holders can possess three ounces of marijuana on their person, six matured marijuana plants, six seedlings, and an ounce of concentrate.
  • License holders can possess up to eight ounces of marijuana and seventy-two ounces of edible marijuana in their residence.  

Please visit the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority for the most up-to-date state laws and regulations in Oklahoma regarding medical marijuana.
