In order to be enrolled in the licensed program as a designated medical marijuana grower, you need to be assigned a patient who has been approved by Health Canada. Normally those who are authorized to possess marijuana can hold a license to produce and grow it as well.
All growers must be over the age of 18, be a resident of Canada and must not have any drug related convictions within the last 10 years. All eligible and approved growers will be issued a production license as well as an identification card.
Marijuana plants can be grown both indoors and outdoors; providing that all government criteria are met. Growers must also take the necessary precautions to protect plants and the dried marijuana from loss or theft.
Please view the chart below for details regarding the amount of marijuana you allowed to grow and store. Remember that the criteria depend on the daily amount that has been approved and also the location of plants (indoors/outdoors).
Please Note: Laws are about to change as Health Canada plans to stop personal growth licenses. If you decide not to apply for a license today, you may never be eligible for it again. You might have to resort to buying your medicine from private corporations with high prices and poor selection.
See table below for examples:
|Plants indoors (winter months)||Plants Outdoors (summer months)||Storage (grams)||Storage (kilograms)|
|Amount (grams/day)||Possession (grams/month)||Plants indoors (all year)||Storage (grams)||Storage (kilograms)|
|Amount (grams/day)||Possession (grams/month)||Plants Outdoors (all year)||Storage (grams)||Storage (kilograms)|
Very important: current law is about to change in under 2 years, and Health Canada may stop personal grow licensing. If you do not get your license today, you may lose your chance of getting it forever and have to buy your medicine from few selected private corporations with poor selection and unreasonably high prices.
