Grow at Home

The Cannabis Act (Canada) and Regulations permits patients, or their designated caregiver, to grow a limited amount of cannabis at home. Natural Health Services (NHS) will support our patients who are interested in pursuing this option. The total number of plants a patient can grow is determined by the number of grams per day your physician recommends.  

If you are interested in growing your own cannabis, please follow these steps:
