Grow at Home
The Cannabis Act (Canada) and Regulations permits patients, or their designated caregiver, to grow a limited amount of cannabis at home. Patients are able to apply directly to Health Canada. The total number of plants a patient can grow is determined by the number of grams per day your physician recommends.
