Alberta Cannabis Laws

On top of the Canadian Cannabis Laws listed in the Cannabis Act, provinces also have their own laws and regulations to help govern the productions, usage, distribution, packaging, and sales of cannabis and cannabis-related products and services within their province. 

In Alberta, the Alberta Gaming & Liquor Commission (AGLC) was placed with the creation and overseeing of the legislation to ensure only legal products are being sold. 

Consumption and Possession of Cannabis in Alberta

In line with the legal drinking age in Alberta, the minimum age for cannabis purchases and consumption is set at 18 years old. Anyone 18 or older is allowed to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis in public if they do not have a medical cannabis prescription. Cannabis can legally be consumed in private residences, as well as in certain public areas where the consumption of tobacco products are also allowed. This means places such as hospitals, schools, parks, and zoos are banned. Driving under the influence of any type is illegal and carries large fines in both Alberta and Canada as a whole. Education and public safety rules will continue to be developed as time goes on around medical cannabis consumption. When driving or transporting cannabis in Alberta, it must be sealed in a closed package, within the legal limit amount, and out of reach of the driver and passengers. 

Cultivation & Growing Cannabis Plants in Alberta

Adults over the legal age are allowed to legally grow up to 4 plants per residence. Apollo assists all Canadians in obtaining and registering their ACMPR Personal Production (Grow Your Own) License with Health Canada. In order to legally grow medical cannabis in Canada, you must:

(1) be over the age of 18

(2) have no prior cannabis convictions

(3) be prescribed medical cannabis by a physician

(4) fill out and submit an application to Health Canada

Alberta Workplaces & Cannabis

Workplaces and cannabis in Alberta follow the same rules put in place by the Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Act that governs any type of impairment in the workplace. This can include anything from alcohol, fatigue, and mental health. Workers have the obligation to perform their job safely and are expected to cooperate with their employer by reporting known impairment to ensure a safe work environment.

Medical Cannabis Laws in Alberta

Medical cannabis is governed and regulated by the Federal government, and separate from recreational laws in Alberta. 

Patients authorized by a health care provider are still able to access medical cannabis by:

  • Purchase through a Health Canada Licensed Producer (LP)
  • Applying for a grow your own license (GYO)
  • Designating an individual to grow it for them on their behalf

Public possession limits for patients are the lesser of 150 grams or a 30 day supply of their prescription. This does not include the 30 grams they are allowed to have of recreational cannabis. Patients must be prepared to show they are legally allowed to possess more than 30 grams if requested by law enforcement by showing their registration document from a Licensed Producer or certificate from Health Canada.
Medical cannabis can only be purchased through Licensed Producers, licensed by the Federal Government of Canada via Health Canada. Medical cannabis is often less expensive than recreational cannabis, and as a patient, you will be provided with a personalized treatment plan for strain selection and dosing.  Medical cannabis is tax-deductible and may also be covered by insurance.

How do I get CBD oil in Alberta

CBD or cannabidiol is one of the main components of the cannabis plant. Unlike, THC, CBD is non- intoxicating, meaning that CBD will not get you “high” or give you the euphoric effect that is often associated with using cannabis. CBD oil can be used to treat symptoms and conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, and depression. In Alberta, CBD oil can be prescribed by a physician or qualified Healthcare Practitioner. Patients can then order their CBD oil from a registered Licensed Producer, which will mail your medical cannabis directly to your home.

If you are interested in obtaining a prescription for medical cannabis and CBD oil and live in Alberta, Apollo can help.
