Health Canada allows you to grow approximately 5 times the amount of grams you were prescribed per day in plants i.e. if you were prescribed 5 gram per day, you can grow 25 plants indoors. Many Doctors are not comfortable signing these prescriptions and if they do, they are extremely conservative and don’t understand that many people prefer to eat or juice rather than smoke and this require much more product. This is where we come in, we connect people with compassionate doctors that are willing to write them the prescription they need.

So, why are people doing this? Well, for a number of reasons. The most popular reason is the fact that people simply don’t know what’s inside their cannabis. What pesticides are being used? Is it genetically modified cannabis? Are bugs present in the cannabis?
Bugs are a great example, in Ontario, cannabis consumers seem to be turning away from the province’s legal suppliers and returning their underground sellers, or simply starting the process to grow their own. Why? Because the Ontario Cannabis Store, which is the only legal, licensed and regulated retailer in the province, keeps making some big mistakes.
Since sales began in October, they’ve failed big time with a number of privacy breaches, misdirected orders and have even incorrectly labeled products, not to mention recalled products for mold and, perhaps even more disturbing, sold Cannabis with bugs in them. Yes, you read that correctly, BUGS. Many orders from the Ontario Cannabis store have been contaminated insects. You can read more about that story here.
It’s also important to mention here, while we are talking about growing your own Cannabis, that on December 13 2018, Health Canada conducted a license webinar where they would go over the specifics of the Micro- Class Licenses.
Like the ACMPR program, to acquire a Micro Cultivation Licence, an application has to be thorough and professionally drafted, and submitted to Health Canada for review. The Micro Cultivation Licence permits 200 square metres (around 2152 square feet) of total canopy space, including multiple surfaces. It can be either indoors (greenhouse, warehouse) or outdoors (farming). For information on outdoor farming, please see the page in this section called Outdoor Cannabis.
