All Oklahoma Cannabis Must be Tested as of April 1
As of April 1st of this year, any medical marijuana sold in Oklahoma must be tested by a laboratory licensed by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority. This, according to a story on Oklahoma’s News4 website. The rule, which was passed by the Oklahoma Legislature and announced in November of last year, applies to both growers and processors of medical cannabis flower and extracted components.
While the new rule mandates testing at the grow or processor level, Oklahoma licensed dispensaries are required to ensure any product sold at their location has been tested by a lab licensed by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority. Testing will cover THC levels and terpene profiles, as well as the presence of pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants. There are currently just ten licensed testing laboratories in the state of Oklahoma, but the state says many more are in various stages of the licensing process.
