As of April 2023, both medical and adult-use cannabis markets are not yet legal in Oklahoma. However, the state has legalized medical cannabis, and the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) is responsible for the licensing and regulation of medical cannabis businesses in the state.
The Wild-Wild West of Oklahoma has been mildly tamed by the two year moratorium placed on new licenses. ICS, and Jenny Germano made the companies first trip to Oklahoma this year to speak at a show about the Metrc regulation going into effect this May. During this time of new regulations and consolidation of the marketplace, ICS can be a valuable resource and partner to drive success.
Medical Cannabis Market
The licensing requirements for medical cannabis businesses in Oklahoma are comprehensive and include detailed applications, background checks, financial disclosures, and proof of compliance with state and local zoning regulations. Applicants must also demonstrate their knowledge of the industry and the regulations governing it. The state issues four types of licenses for medical cannabis businesses: grower, processor, dispensary, and transporter.
As of April 2023, there are numerous licensed medical cannabis operators in Oklahoma, including growers, processors, dispensaries, and transporters. The market is highly competitive, but there is still significant opportunity for new businesses to enter and succeed in the industry.
In terms of regulatory compliance considerations, medical cannabis businesses in Oklahoma must adhere to strict rules governing everything from product labeling and packaging to testing and quality control.

Adult-Use Cannabis Market
Adult-use cannabis is not yet legal in Oklahoma. However, there have been discussions about potentially legalizing the adult-use market in the future.
