What Health Canada Wants You to Know About The Cannabis Act

With October 17th approaching, Health Canada has released a quick guide regarding the implementation of The Cannabis Act and what it means for medical cannabis patients in Canada.

Below we have a break down of the important points that every medical patient needs to know for legalization next week.

Access to Medical Cannabis

You will still be able to purchase your medical cannabis through Licensed Producers, register with Health Canada for personal-use production or designate someone to grow for you.

You will also able to buy recreational cannabis at provincial or territorial authorized retail outlets and through the provincial or territorial authorized online sales platforms, but you are still required to abide by the rules that apply to all other adults buying cannabis for non-medical purposes.

Accessing Medical Cannabis from a Federally Licensed Seller

Health Canada is improving upon the existing medical cannabis framework by providing patients the ability to request the return of and/or transfer of your medical document from your licensed seller to another licensed seller.

They are also changing the authorization effective date from the date that the patient is authorized by their health care practitioner to the date that the registration document is issues from the Licensed Producer.  

Health Canada is also eliminating the 30-day limit period for purchasing medical cannabis to assist with the gap that some patients are experiencing due to the current limitation.

There are also a broader range of Licensed Producers and products to become available in the coming months post-legalization.

Personal-Use and Designated Production

Your registration certificate will remain valid until a renewal decision has been made as long as a renewal application has been received by Health Canada prior to the certificate expiry.

As well, the date that the registration certificate is completed and sent to you is the date that it is effective, not the date that the authorization was written by the health care practitioner.

Possession and Personal Storage Limits

You will be able to possess an additional 30 grams for non-medical purposes – medical possession remains 150 grams or 30 times your daily authorization amount (whichever is less).

Medical patients are still required to provide proof of their authorization when requested by law enforcement. This can be provided by showing one of the following: registration document issued by Licensed Producer, or registration certificate from Health Canada for production and/or possession.

Medical marijuana authorization will continue to be a necessary service in Canada as establishing medical need for cannabis in order to get insurance coverage will continue to be needed. If you or someone you know requires authorization, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

For the full article released by Health Canada please see Cannabis for Medical Purposes Under the Cannabis Act: Information and Improvements.

Medical Marijuana Consulting will continue to support all patients post-legalization, so please get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns by calling 1-844-312-5143 or visit our website www.medmc.ca.

    Great article and useful information which I have bookmarked and will come back to.I have a question about a simple blog…I want to create a cheap and easy blog for a special event for someone who is away and will be missing their significant birthday. Basically I want a platform for people to post photos and/or videos and their best wishes. Is there such a thing? I know I could do a Facebook page and block her from it but I thought a blog might be slightly more cool. Is this even possible? I use wordpress for my other blogs but didn’t think it would be possible to allow others to post photos and videos on a blog without giving them all the sign in code which I’d rather not do. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Great article! I’m sure many newbies have found your guide on blogging sites extremely helpful. Anyway, I’ve tried several companies that claim to be the best website hosts but so far I think only BlueHost can back up their claims with actual proof. I’ve seen that BlueHost is mentioned in your article a lot, and that makes perfect sense as one of the best website hosts. You might also wanna recommend HostGator in your article–their uptime and speed are quite excellent as well. But, re: topic, I’ve been using WordPress for my sites as I feel like it’s the only one that offers all the features that my website needs.

Majority of the above-mentioned list is filled up with Free Tools and that’s what makes this post valuable for bloggers like me.My takeaway is Blog promotion and Video editing tools.I have also written a curated list of 40+ Free Tools on my blog.Can you also write a blog post on Google Chrome Extension tools?It would be great if you can write up a similar post on Chrome extensions based on your experiences.As I found some Chrome extensions such as Awesome Screenshot and Keywords Everywhere are a great help.Thank You.
