The first step is to have an appointment with a Board-Certified Physician that is in good standing with their respective Medical Boards. During that appointment your Physician will determine your suitability for Medical Cannabis and if they believe you will receive a benefit from these medications, you will obtain a signed, “OMMA Adult Patient Physician Recommendation Form.” That particular signed form is only good for 30 days so be sure to submit your OMMA application in a timely fashion.

Once I get my Physician Recommendation, how do I submit my OMMA Application?2019-03-07T17:01:02-05:00

Why is the “Patient Medical Conditions,” section of my OMMA Physician Recommendation Form Sometimes Blank and how do I answer the application question for the “ICD-10 Diagnosis Code?”2019-04-18T08:49:07-05:00

This section of your form is  OPTIONAL per the OMMA and the ICD-10 question is equally OPTIONAL on the application and neither HAVE to be filled out. It can simply be skipped. Entering this information or electing to not enter it, does not change how long it takes to receive your OMMA Medical Cannabis License.

Once I complete my application how long does it take to receive my license?2019-04-18T08:40:38-05:00

Once the application has been submitted COMPLETELY and CORRECTLY, it will be reviewed by the OMMA. If it is deemed to meet all their requirements, an approval email will be sent to you within 14 days of the application completion submission date.

If an application is incomplete due to unclear or missing information or documents, you will receive another email correspondence stating the reason(s) it is incomplete. You will be able to log back into your account to make corrections once you receive this email (but not before). The submission date is the date a complete application is provided.

Is it true that it is very hard to get the OMMA Passport-Style Photo Correct and it causes people to be rejected/delayed?2019-04-18T08:45:55-05:00

The OMMA Facial Photo is no different than a passport photo, but it is the most common reason patients’ applications are delayed and the most misunderstood aspect of the application process. Just watch our video below for instructions. You can also just use the OMMA’s own Photo Tutorial by clicking the picture below the video. The OMMA Passport-style photo tutorial also has recommended apps for both Android and Apple so that you can take a passport-style selfie with your smartphone if you would like.

What do I do in two years to renew my Medical Cannabis License?2019-04-18T15:15:21-05:00

That is an excellent question? The truth is the “Renewal Process was not included in the original law, and was included in the Oklahoma Medical Cannabis Patient Protection Act, signed by Gov. Stitt in March 2019, and that is being challenged in the court system. As we receive more clarity regarding this process we will let you know.

HOWEVER, our system is set up to start notifying you via email when you are approximately 3 months from your expiration date so we can get you scheduled for your renewal visit well before your expiration date.
