TLDR: If you need to grow more than four plants (for medical reasons) head on over to License to Grow, a Canadian company that helps people to navigate this process that has helped many of our customers to obtain their much needed license.
Growing more than four plants is entirely possible if you need to do so, the law now allows for this.
We are all quite aware by now that anyone in Canada is allowed to grow four Cannabis plants legally. This is intended for recreational users as this would produce roughly 12 ounces of premium bud in a 3 month period on average. This yield equates to an ounce or so per week which is a sensible amount when forming laws around this subject.
Some people however suffer from conditions and / or need to ingest in a concentrated form which sometimes requires that they need to grow more than four plants. The recent changes in Canadian law this subject have again been created very sensibly and with the correct procedures followed a person can quite easily be licensed to grow many more than four plants if they need to.
The process involves an initial telephone call where you leave your details and within a day or two you will be called back to answer a few questions and make an appointment for assessment. Assessments usually take place within a week of making the appointment and are carried out by Canada Health Registered Nurses.
The assessment itself is usually done via video link but can also be performed via telephone, takes roughly 20 minutes to complete unless your condition is complex and the nurse then completes their assessment after the video call. If your symptoms and requirements for medication are deemed to be greater than what four plants can provide you will be prescribed license to grow an appropriate amount.
If this is of interest to you please head on over to License to Grow, a Canadian company that helps people to navigate this process that has helped many of our customers to obtain their much needed license.
Thank you Canada. Nice work.
