Metrc does not normally allow for untracked items to be added to your inventory but will allow the manual upload of starting inventory until April 30th only. After the April 30th deadline NO EXTERNAL SEEDS will be able to added to your invetory, meaning all seeds must come from and Oklahoma Licensed Metrc account
As seeds are kept and tracked in packages until planted, all users will need to create their Seed inventory IN METRC.
There are Two steps to creating your beginning seed inventory packages that must be completed to be compliant:
1) Create an External Transfer of all Seed Packages
2) Accept Your External Transfer assigning Package tags to your packages
Entering your starting Seed Inventory
Before doing this, you must complete the Metrc Onboarding Process setting up your Metrc Account
Once you have successfully completed the onboarding process, use the Incoming External Transfer in Metrc to make any inventory you want (as is stated in the Metrc guide for Oklahoma) until April 30th, following these steps:
First, create any Strains in Metrc that you haven't added yet and plan to add seeds of. If you have already connected your Metrc and GroLens accounts you can easily sync your strains up to Metrc through your Metrc Compliance Dashboard, or if the Strains of the Seeds you're adding already exist in your Metrc account you can skip to the next step
If you have not created your strains and need more information on how to complete this process, check out or blog on How to Create Strains in Metrc.
Note: You MUST create your Strains prior to creating your Items. Items are a new concept to any non-Metrc user, and are simply put used to define what type of item is in each package. GroLens users are able to create new items in the GroLens Sell dashboard during the packaging process, however to for the creation of beginning inventory without the ability to utilize the GroLens packaging feature please reference How to Create Items in Metrc
After creating your Item, you will need to create an Incoming External Transfer in Metrc and enter all of your Seeds packages following the steps below:
In order to complete the package creation process, you must next accept the external transfer, assigning Metrc package tags to each package in Metrc, then applying those physical package tags to their correlating packages in-person.
