Applying for your Oklahoma medical marijuana caregiver license is not hard. But it can be tedious if you don’t have all your ducks in a row when it’s time to apply. Missing information or an bad photo could land you with an incomplete application. To avoid delays and more of your precious caregiving time being sucked away into a vortex of online bureaucracy, we’ve whipped up this quick and easy guide for getting it done right the first time.

Good to Know Info Before You Apply

  • The legal definition of a “caregiver means a family member or assistant who regularly looks after a licensed patient whom a physician certifies is homebound or needs assistance.
  • Coordinating with the Patient: With their application, the person you are the caregiver for will have already uploaded their Physician Recommendation Form. That form must certify that the patient has a need for a caregiver. When you apply, you will need to give the patient’s medical marijuana license number so that this can be confirmed.
  • For Adult Patients, you will need to have a completed and signed (by the patient) Adult Caregiver Designation Form.
  • For Minor Patients, you will need to have a completed and signed (by the patient’s parents or guardians) Minor Caregiver Designation Form. Only parents or guardians can be caregivers for minors.
  • An adult patient can have only one designated caregiver. A minor can have two caregivers (their legal parents/guardians).
  • Your caregiver license expires when the patient’s license expires. Patient licenses are good for two years.
  • There is no fee for a caregiver license. Nice!

Some Helpful Technical Savvy

  • You must have an email address. The application process is done online by signing into a portal. You will need to register; email is required.
  • The application site is mobile-friendly, but a laptop or desktop computer performs best when applying.
  • Chrome and Safari browsers work best, while Firefox and Internet Explorer perform moderately well.
  • Have all documents (driver’s license, proof of residence, photo, etc.) loaded and ready to go your device.

Info to Have at the Ready

  • Your name and date of birth
  • Your residence and mailing address
  • Your telephone number and email address
  • The name of the patient who has designated you as his or her caregiver
  • The 24-character medical marijuana license number for the patient
  • Proof of Oklahoma residency (digital, color copy of one of the following): 
    • Oklahoma driver’s license (front and back)
    • Ok identification card (front and back)
    • State of Oklahoma voter identification card
    • A utility bill for the month before you apply, excluding cellular telephone and internet bills
    • A residential property deed to property in the State of Oklahoma
    • A current rental agreement for residential property located in the State of Oklahoma
  • Proof of identity (digital, color copy one of the following): 
    • Oklahoma driver’s license (front and back)
    • Oklahoma identification card (front and back)
    • U.S. passport or other photo ID issued by the U.S government
    • Tribal identification card approved for identification purposes by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety: 
      • United States Bureau of Indian Affairs identification card or an Oklahoma tribal photo identification card: Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma, Kiowa, Comanche, Apache of Oklahoma, Absentee Shawnee, Cheyenne-Arapaho, Choctaw, Delaware, Caddo Nation of Oklahoma issued on or after Jan. 9 2008
    • A clear, color, full-face digital photograph (See guidelines for acceptable photos)
    • Adult Patient Caregiver Designation Form signed by the patient (or, if applicable, the patient’s legal guardian) or Minor Patient Caregiver Designation Form signed by the minor patient’s parent(s) or guardian(s)

Pre-load Your Documents

You should have digital copies of all the documents and photos that you will be uploading. We recommend having this done ahead of time and ready on your device so that you only have to click and upload it to your online application. 

  • Proof of Oklahoma residency
  • Your chosen proof of identity
  • A clear, color, full-face digital photograph
  • A caregiver designation form

Documents should be in color (if applicable) and legible. Your photo should be clear and show your whole face (no glasses, hair, or hat obstructing). It should have a plain white or off-white background. Resolution should be minimum 600 x 600 and maximum 1200 x 1200 pixels. The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) has a whole doc dedicated to the dos and don’ts on photos.

Be sure your Missouri medical marijuana caregiver application is complete. Otherwise, it could take up to 2-3 weeks longer to receive your license.

With Your OMMA Caregiver License

Your caregiver license gives you the same rights as a patient except, of course, you may not use the marijuana and you may only cultivate for up to five OMMA licensed patients. Otherwise, you may:

  • Legally possess up to 3 ounces (84.9 grams) of marijuana
  • Possess 6 mature marijuana plants legally
  • Legally possess 6 seedling plants
  • Have 1 ounce (28.3 grams) of concentrated marijuana
  • Legally possess seventy-two 72 ounces (2,037.6 grams) of edible marijuana
  • Legally possess up to eight 8 ounces (226.4 grams) of marijuana in the patient’s residence
  • (These possession limits are cumulative and a licensed patient or caregiver may possess at one time the totality of the items listed above)
  • Purchase the above for the patient
  • Administer marijuana to the patient

When you are ready you can go to the OMMA caregiver info page and scroll down to the bottom. Click on the blue APPLY NOW button, and you will be taken to a registration page.
