What Strength of MMJ is Legal in Oklahoma?

If you’re considering using medical marijuana
(MMJ) to help ease symptoms of a health problem you’re dealing with, you might
be wondering, “Is MMJ legal in Oklahoma?”. The answer is yes! It can be a
relatively easy process to use medical marijuana after obtaining an MMJ card.
However, not being familiar with the different strengths and strains of
marijuana products out there can cause confusion. Well, here’s some helpful
information to help take the guesswork out of determining the legal marijuana
strength in Oklahoma and which products you should be using.

First, MMJ products are typically divided into
three categories:

  1. Indica – originates from the Hindu Kush mountains in India and has a relaxing effect; can also be used for chronic pain and insomnia
  2. Sativa – has more energizing effects; boosts energy levels and creativity
  3. Hybrid – a combination of these two types

From there, dispensaries can divide these
three types into specific strains. The strains most popular in Oklahoma include
Acapulco Gold, Panama Red, Durban Poison, Hindu Kush, Mazar Sharif, and Afghan
Kush.

Now the authorities have made MMJ legal in Oklahoma, there are plenty of varieties available to patients.

If you’re wondering “How strong is Oklahoma
MMJ?”, you should get informed about the general strength of MMJ products.
Unfortunately, determining the strength of MMJ products isn’t always completely
straightforward. Although there should be a “total THC” number on the label of
the product you’re buying (or what the dispensary lists it as), there’s no
standard for calculating this and some dispensaries calculate the number in
different ways. You just need to check out the actual amount of THC or CBD in
the product, which can depend on the content of the product and the method you
use to consume it. The highest strengths are usually between 10 and 35 total
THC level (out of a percentage of the dry weight). The most common MMJ strength
in Oklahoma ranges from 8% to 20% THC. However, if you decide you need
something stronger, your local dispensary can probably assist you in finding
the right strain and strength for your medical needs. Bottom line: the MMJ
strength in Oklahoma that you need can be found pretty easily, especially as
more state-licensed dispensaries are popping up throughout the state.

The MMJ laws in Oklahoma are pretty similar to
the ones in other states in the U.S. where medical marijuana usage is legal.
With a valid MMJ card, you are allowed to have:

  • Up to 8 ounces of marijuana in
    your home
  • Up to 3 ounces of marijuana on
    your person when you leave your residence
  • Up to 1 ounce of concentrated
    marijuana
  • Up to 72 ounces of edibles
  • Up to 6 mature plants
  • Up to 6 seedling plants

This means that
you’re permitted to grow and cultivate your own marijuana plants if you have an
MMJ license. Please note: you are only legally allowed to purchase from
state-licensed dispensaries in Oklahoma, which means you’re prohibited from
buying any marijuana products from a dealer or another MMJ cardholder.

So, how do you
figure out which plants to grow or which products to purchase? Your best bet is
to have a consultation with someone who works at the nearest dispensary. Most
employees are very knowledgeable about their products, including which
particular strains and strengths would work the best to help with your
symptoms. You can let them know exactly what you want to use MMJ for
(everything from relief from nausea or inflammation to reduction of symptoms of
glaucoma or Parkinson’s). They’ll be able to point you towards products that
won’t be too strong for you, but that will still help alleviate your symptoms.

Dispensary employees can usually help answer questions like “Which strand of MMJ is right for me?” and “How strong is Oklahoma MMJ?”

There are also some websites out there (like Leafly) that offer MMJ products that can be
delivered to your home. This site is helpful because it allows you to easily
compare various strains and strengths side by side. By seeing the THC content
of each option, you can better tell which products will work best for you. Even
just spending a little time doing research online can help point you towards
the strength/strain that other people with your ailments have found helpful in
the past.

The good thing about there being different
strengths and strains of marijuana is that you don’t have to commit to just
one. Experimenting with a variety of products can help you narrow down your
search for the right product for your specific needs. Because pretty much all
strengths and strains are legal in Oklahoma, you’re free to use whatever you
wish as long as you have an MMJ card. If you don’t have an MMJ
card already, you can apply for one through the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana
Authority (OMMA) at omma.ok.gov.
You’ll also need to consult with a medical professional who can verify that you
do have a health condition with symptoms that could be alleviated with the
usage of MMJ. If you don’t have a medical professional to help with this, you
can use the services of MMJRecs.
They can connect you virtually to a licensed physician who can help you
complete your application. You’ll also be required to pay a $100 application
fee (or a discounted fee of $20 if you are on Medicaid SoonerCare or Medicare).
As soon as you receive your official MMJ card, you can legally purchase MMJ
products in Oklahoma.

Although it can be tricky to figure out which
strain and strength of marijuana is right for you, you always have the option
of getting advice from a local dispensary or try experimenting with different
products. Once you find the perfect option for you, you’ll get all of the
benefits of using MMJ in the great state of Oklahoma.
