In a landmark announcement by Health Canada today, medical marijuana patients will now be able to grow their own cannabis, with the approval of their doctor and Health Canada.
If the patient is not healthy enough to grow their own cannabis, they can designate someone to grow it for them, or they can still get product from one of the 34 Licensed Producers approved by Health Canada.
If you are approved for medical marijuana, you can register with Health Canada to grow a “limited” amount of cannabis for your own medical purposes. This new change will go into effective on August 24, 2016.
If you have any questions regarding this ruling, on getting a prescription for medical marijuana or on choosing a Licensed Producer in Canada, please give us a call: 403-475-4205.
