SB 1704: Employee Credential Application Period Opens Jan. 1

Friday, December 15, 2023

Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, Oklahoma medical cannabis industry employees can apply for the new credential issued by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) and required by state law. Current employees must apply for a credential on or before Jan. 31.  

The new state law, Senate Bill 1704 (2022), requires employees of licensed medical cannabis businesses to receive credentials from OMMA. Licensed businesses are also responsible for ensuring their employees have a valid credential or pending application.  

Credentials will be valid until Jan. 31 of the following year and cost $30 plus any associated processing fees. 

To apply for a credential, employees must log in to the Thentia licensing portal.

Applicants must submit proof of identity, including a state and national background check.  

OMMA encourages those seeking credentials to start the process early to allow for the time needed to complete the required background checks.  

The full list of requirements and other helpful information can be found on OMMA’s credentialing page at
