June 26, 2018, was a game-changer for Oklahomans. The population went to their voting locations and shocked the nation by legalizing medical marijuana.
The very next day, The Higher Care Clinic became the first medical marijuana clinic to open for business in Tulsa. This started a rapid growth of Oklahoman’s turning to cannabis for medical relief from ailments.
Over the first year, more than 145,000 patients registered for their medical marijuana card in the state. That’s 3.7 percent of the state’s total population, and the number is expected to keep growing.
On the road to one year in existence, we’ve hit some other milestones as well. On July 10, 2018, the Oklahoma State Health Board passed rules for the regulation of medical cannabis that Rocking Star Farm and others must follow.
At some point during the year, Oklahoma had a higher percentage of medical cannabis patients than any other legalized state – showcasing the need and demand for relief among Oklahomans.
Thankfully, with the passing of SQ 788, Oklahomans have been able to get cannabinoid relief for serious conditions, including PTSD, epilepsy, glaucoma, Alzheimer’s, cancer, migraines, lupus, fibromyalgia, and many more.
The future for Oklahoma and cannabis is interesting. Efforts are being made to push for legalization of recreational marijuana, and regulations continue to be adjusted and amended.
Rocking Star Farms works diligently with lawmakers and officials to adhere and even help shape policy for growers in the state. Our state-of-the-art growing techniques and facilities align with the purpose of SQ 788 – to get medical relief to those who need it.
We continue to grow in efforts to produce the highest concentrations of THC and CBD when and where needed, along with isolating the cannabinoids that produce the most effective results for illness, conditions, and more.
We encourage you to look for the dispensaries where Rocking Star Farm medical cannabis is sold.
