In order to optimize compliance, OMMA is extending the credentialing deadline to Feb. 29, 2024. Background checks dated on or after Dec. 2, 2023, will be accepted. This response is necessary to address circumstances with the licensing platform that are outside of our control. Our promise to you: We are working with our licensing vendor day in and day out to fix bugs in the system as they arise. Learn more at Employee Credentialing.

Seed-to-Sale (Metrc)

OMMA uses Metrc for the statewide seed-to-sale inventory tracking system. All OMMA-licensed businesses must be fully Metrc-compliant.

Getting Started and Training

Get Started With Required Training

The owner or key administrator of each commercial license is required to take Metrc’s New Business class to become credentialed in Metrc.

Licensees can use the Metrc scheduler to sign up for New Business training, offered each weekday. The class is also offered on demand through Metrc Learn in your Metrc account.

When you complete the training, reach out to Metrc’s Support team to get credentialed.

Optional Training

Licensees already credentialed in Metrc can take advanced training courses in Metrc Learn and using the Metrc scheduler. Metrc also has has helpful information for licensees in the Metrc Knowledge Center.

Without a Metrc login, you can also watch training videos on its Oklahoma web page and its YouTube channel on the following topics (and many others):  


Metrc Users' Guide

OMMA prepared a Metrc Users' Guide to help with basic information and common errors.


Zero Inventory

Businesses with zero inventory must still be credentialed in Metrc.

Starting June 30, 2023, commercial licensees required to submit zero inventory reports must report that information in Metrc using the Operational Exception function. 

Licensees reporting zero inventory must do so by the 15th day of each month with information from the preceding month. As an example, July 15 is the due date for the June 1-30 monthly inventory report. Use the Operational Exception function in Metrc to report zero inventory. 

OMMA's Monthly Reporting Template, the electronic form on the Qualtrics platform, is no longer available and is impermissible for zero inventory reporting as of July 1, 2023.

Using the Operational Exception function in Metrc will satisfy the OMMA rules requirement for monthly inventory tracking only for licensees reporting zero inventory. Untimely reports can also be submitted through Metrc's Operational Exception function.

Please refer to Metrc's OK Bulletin 23 for details.

The deadline for testing labs to enter testing results and attach the COA for items in a business’s beginning inventory or for testing information to be added to the notes for those items in a dispensary’s inventory was July 25, 2022. All products transferred from growers and processors should include the testing results and COA in Metrc. All tagged products at a dispensary should already have the testing results and COA in Metrc or include the testing information in the notes section. If any products do not meet these requirements, they must be re-tested, and the testing laboratory must enter the test results and upload the new COA into Metrc. There will be no extension of the July 25, 2022, deadline.

If Metrc is unable to find your license, request a ticket number from Metrc Support. Then send an email to OMMACommunications@omma.ok.gov with the licensee’s name, the business name, the business license number and the Metrc ticket number. Our vendors are working on a permanent solution to this problem, but in the meantime, we can help troubleshoot and potentially fix it manually.

The deadline was May 26, 2022, for growers and processors to sell or legally dispose of untagged products, or bring them inside Metrc using the beginning inventory process. The deadline was Aug. 24, 2022, for dispensaries to sell or legally dispose of untagged products. Send an email to OMMACommunications@omma.ok.gov if you missed those deadlines.

Yes. All commercial licensees are required to be credentialed in Metrc.

Metrc fulfills all reporting requirements.

We are working closely with Metrc to amend the transfer manifest. The revised manifest will be available soon. Until then, commercial licensees can handwrite harvest and production batch numbers on the manifest before transporting medical marijuana product(s) from the originating licensee's premises. Per OAC 442:10-3-6(g), the manifest may not be altered after that point, except to add printed names, titles and signatures of any personnel accepting delivery on behalf of the receiving licensee, to document the refusal of a medical marijuana or medical marijuana product delivery, or if delivery becomes impossible after leaving the originating licensee’s premises. OMMA commercial licensees shall not accept any incoming transfers until after the shipment, contents and batch numbers have been physically received and verified, the physical manifest has been signed, and all other requirements are met.

OMMA Chief Science Officer Lee Rhoades explains how to properly enter and submit testing primary testing samples in this YouTube video. It's important to also submit a reserve sample using the same process -- be sure to make the reserve sample a regular package in Metrc, not a test package. Get full details in this bulletin from Metrc.

Violations are subject to administrative action. Businesses that aren't compliant will receive instructions via certified mail and email.

Oklahoma requested proposals for a statewide seed-to-sale tracking system provider. A single, statewide provider provides industrywide standardization that makes it more efficient to track activity in the medical marijuana market.

Agreed Order (Court Document)

On Feb. 25, 2022, OMMA, Metrc and plaintiffs reached an agreement allowing Oklahoma’s seed-to-sale system to move forward.

The Agreed Order, filed Feb. 25, 2022, in Oklahoma County District Court, lifted the restraining order that blocked OMMA from implementing a seed-to-sale tracking and tagging system for the medical marijuana industry. Metrc, a co-defendant with OMMA in the now-vacated restraining order, is OMMA’s contractor for the program.

According to the Agreed Order signed by District Judge Natalie Mai:

  1. Licensed medical marijuana businesses had until May 26 to comply with the Metrc seed-to-sale tracking system.
  2. Dispensaries have until Wednesday, Aug. 24 to sell or legally dispose of untagged medical marijuana products in their inventory.
  3. OMMA was required to conduct at least five online seminars by May 26 to educate licensees on the new seed-to-sale system.
  4. OMMA will ensure adequate Call Center staff is on hand to respond to questions about seed-to-sale program implementation.

NCS Analytics

We're partnering with NCS Analytics to make data-driven decisions that improve regulation and enforcement.

By tracking seed-to-sale data like plant counts, product types and licensee numbers, the NCS Platform analyzes data from across the supply chain, helping to identify anomalies our staff may need to investigate, including potential diversion, improper financial relationships or underpayment of excise taxes. This data analysis provides an overall picture of the industry that has never before been available in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma's NCS Platform dashboard is on the NCS Analytics website.
