The Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) establishes the guidelines for growing, selling, and purchasing cannabis in Canada. They are not easy to comprehend, as are most government rules. For over four years, we’ve been preparing business plans for persons and organizations seeking a producer’s license, so we’re well familiar with the rules and regulations around cannabis grow licence Canada.
It is legal to grow cannabis plants at home. Adults aged 19 and older can have up to four non-medical cannabis plants in their home. These plants are not allowed to be planted in public spaces such as parks, roadways, sidewalks, sports fields, or K-12 educational grounds. Plants can be grown on your balcony or in your yard, for example, as long as they are not visible from a public place. Cannabis cultivation is prohibited in houses that provide licensed child care.
Landlords and strata companies can impose further restrictions or outright bans on non-medical cannabis cultivation on their premises. Under current rights to enact ordinances, local and indigenous governments can further prohibit non-medical cannabis cultivation at home.
Why Obtain a License?
A license is necessary by law if you want to cultivate medicinal or non-medical cannabis for commercial reasons. Obtaining the necessary licenses permits your items to be sold in a wide range of public and private approved retail locations across Canada.

The ACMPR is divided into two parts.
- To begin, it discusses how to legally produce marijuana (cannabis) for personal use or select someone to do it for you. It effectively takes the place of the MMAR (Marihuana Medical Access Regulations).
- The second major section of the rules details how licensed producers can apply for licenses to cultivate marijuana (cannabis) for commercial purposes. So, if you want to grow cannabis for sale, it explains how to apply for a license to produce and distribute dried cannabis, fresh cannabis, cannabis plants, seeds, and oils, as well as how to apply for and maintain a license to make and sell dried cannabis, fresh cannabis, cannabis plants, seeds, and oils.
