Do you live in Oklahoma and have a chronic health condition that prevents you from performing everyday tasks or enjoying your life? If so, you may be able to use medical cannabis as an alternative treatment option. Those who are residents of Oklahoma or who possess a medical cannabis card from another state can qualify to legally use, buy, and grow marijuana for their treatment purposes. Here is what you need to know about the condition that qualifies you for medical cannabis use.
How to Get Medical Cannabis in Oklahoma
Those 18 years of age and older can qualify for a medical marijuana card if they have certain health conditions. Those under 18 can also qualify if they have a designated caregiver who can buy medical cannabis for them at any of the licenced dispensaries. To qualify for a card, you must be a resident of the state or have a valid medical marijuana card from another state. You must also have proof of your identity and residency, if applicable.
Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Conditions
Unlike other states where medical marijuana is legal, Oklahoma has no defined conditions that qualify for medical marijuana treatment. Instead, it is up to the discretion of the physician to decide if a condition can be treated effectively with medical cannabis. However, there is a list of common conditions that physicians often deem treatable with medical marijuana.
During your appointment with a physician, he or she will ask you questions about your condition, prior treatment attempts, and health history to determine if you qualify for using medical marijuana.
