Growing Medical Marijuana In Canada

Did you know that it is perfectly legal to grow your own medical cannabis in Canada? To be an authorized grower, you just need to secure a licences to produce marijuana from the government. Authorized patients have the ability to grow medical cannabis on their own or they can even designate another patient to grow their medicine for them. For as long as you take care of all the paperwork (forms A, B1 or B2) required by the Canadian government, you can easily grow medical cannabis in the comfort of your own home.

Don’t forget that the only people who are authorized to grow cannabis are patients that are given a MMAR number. If the patient was involved in any drug related convictions during the past 10 years, he will not receive a MMAR number. Once you become an authorized grower, one of your duties is to provide the government with specific details when it comes to the type of cannabis you are going to grow. You must also be aware of the fact that there are limitations as to how much marijuana you can grow and store. The amount of cannabis you are allowed to grow will depend on the prescription of your doctor and even on your method of planting (indoors or outdoors).

A Simple Plan: Wellness

As an authorized grower, you are allowed to plant medical cannabis for up to two patients. Canada is never lenient when it comes to controlling their authorized growers. Only 3 patients that are living in a single street address can become authorized growers. This means that if 2 people are already growing medical marijuana in your neighborhood, you can only plant for yourself.
