Oklahoma Begins Enforcing Medical Cannabis Testing

Authorities in Oklahoma now require medical cannabis products sold in the US state to be tested by certified cannabis labs.

From July 1, all marijuana products sold by a grower or processor to a dispensary must first be tested by a lab authorized by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA).

These tests should result in a certificate of analysis, detailing the levels of THC, CBD, terpenes, and microbial and heavy metal contaminants.

The new rule was initially meant to take effect on April 1, but delays were made amid the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the OMMA, Oklahoma has 21 licensed cannabis labs as of July 1 – more than double the number licensed in February. Over 5,000 growers and 2,113 dispensaries have also been licensed to operate in the state.

Oklahoma’s medical cannabis program launched in October 2018, and currently generates nearly $10 million a month in state tax revenue, according to the state’s Tax Commission.
