How to get your Oklahoma Commercial Grow License.

       Farming Cannabis in Oklahoma.

 

 

 

            Oklahoma currently has the biggest opportunities to get into the Cannabis Industry as their program is still less than 1 year old and growing rapidly. They are accepting applications for Commercial Grow Licenses, Processing Licenses & Dispensary Licenses for a limited time. Oklahoma is 1 of only a few states that allow a single entity to be involved in all 3 Phases, Growing, Processing & Dispensing which makes it a unique business opportunity. Oklahoma is considered to be 1 of the easiest states to get approved for a Commercial Grow with only a 1-3 week turnaround time for approval and only $2,500.00 per license. 

         Oklahoma has approved openings of over 1,900 dispensaries who all need local supply of quality medical cannabis for their patients. Oklahoma has 1 of the highest price per pound in the nation so if you can grow medical cannabis there is a long list of dispensaries who will buy it and right now prices are well above $2,000 per pound for LED Indoor grown cannabis.

Patient Medical Cards Approved: 197,084
