A medical marijuana caregiver license allows an individual designated by a patient — or a minor patient’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s) — to assist the patient with the purchase, application, and administration of medical marijuana. This license will be in the form of an identification card to prove an individual is a license holder. This card will contain the caregiver’s name, photo, date of birth, city and county of residence, the type of license, expiration date, the caregiver’s unique medical marijuana license number, and the unique medical marijuana license number of the patient.
Caregiver licenses are valid up to the expiration date of the associated patient’s license, not to exceed two years. Additionally, the patient has the right to withdraw his or her designated caregiver at any time. When this happens, the caregiver license will be invalidated.
Applications will be collected at omma.ok.gov. A valid email address is required for login. This email address will be used to send notices once an account is created.
The Physician Recommendation Form attached to the patient’s application must include certification of his or her need for a caregiver in order for a caregiver to submit an application. Caregivers of adult patients must submit the Adult Patient Caregiver Designation Form signed by the patient or, if applicable, the adult patient’s legal guardian. Parent/legal guardian caregivers of minor patients must submit the Minor Patient Caregiver Designation Form. Minor patients may have up to two designated caregivers who are parents or legal guardians.

A medical marijuana identification card and another form of identification should be presented any time you purchase medical marijuana at a dispensary on behalf of the patient or anytime you take marijuana to a processor to be made into a concentrate form at a processor on behalf of the patient. Law enforcement may also require an identification card to prove you are licensed.
