How to Work in Oklahoma's Legal Cannabis Industry

Tips to Help You Get Started in the Marijuana/Cannabis Business

By Hemp Temps - October 4, 2019

There's a massive demand in Oklahoma for trimmers, harvesters, packagers, extractors, kitchen aids, and budtenders for the hemp and marijuana industry. For some, this could be a fresh start in a rewarding new career. However, with the lack of appropriate information out there, many people are asking us, "How can I work with weed in Oklahoma?" While it may seem like a straightforward question, it's relatively tricky to find the correct information. We decided to write a full blog about how you can quickly get started at the job of your dreams.


So what do you need to get started? Check out this list:

  • A complete background check that covers criminal history is necessary. We offer background checks through CBadge. If you purchase the Support-Background-Check for $100, you'll be granted access to our 3-course video library for free. There's a second, more in-depth background check for those wishing to become a manager or intending to obtain a Transporter Agent License. The Manager-Background-Check includes a comprehensive background check for $250, and you'll be granted access to our video library for free. Both of these deals are excellent because not only do you get the useful information needed to start right away, you'll also get the necessary background check required to work in the medical cannabis industry in Oklahoma. 
  • You must be 18 years of age or older to work with weed.  
  • Finally, you don't need to be a resident of Oklahoma to work in the cannabis industry there (unless you want to be a transporter or business owner). We're only mentioning this because it's a very real requirement to live and show proof of residency in other legal states.


Oklahoma is relatively relaxed with their regulations. For instance, in Colorado, one must obtain a MED Support or Key Badge. Those that have this badge must wear it at all times while working with cannabis. We're taking this idea and running with it! For Oklahomans, every person hired by us will get a Hemp Temps lanyard and a Support or Manager "Badge" from We'll ask that you to wear these while working with cannabis at all times (and they must be visible) to easily show our clients you've obtained a background check and that you're legally allowed to work there. Plus, it'll show who you work for, and you can represent us!


At Hemp Temps, we're trying to help people get hired and succeed in this ever-growing industry. It doesn't matter if you have zero experience because we'll train you to feel confident in the work you do. If you already have some experience and/or background check, great! Let's get you a job; submit your resume here.
