How do I get CBD oil in Manitoba?

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 Manitoba, CBD oil can be prescribed by a physician or qualified Healthcare Practitioner. Patients can then fill their prescription for 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 Manitoba, Apollo can help.

Manitoba 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 Manitoba, lawmakers passed The Liquor Gaming & Cannabis Control Act to define outlines for both the industry and legal consumers. Manitobans of legal age can purchase cannabis from the government’s private sector retail model.

Consumption and Possession of Cannabis in Manitoba

In Manitoba, the minimum age for cannabis purchases and consumption is 19 years old. Anyone 19 or older is allowed to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis if they do not have a medical cannabis prescription.

Cannabis consumption throughout Manitoba is currently restricted to private residences and homes. Any public spaces such as parks, streets, restaurants, and more are prohibited. Driving under the influence of cannabis is strictly illegal and will result in punishments in accordance with the Highway Traffic Act. Law enforcement in Manitoba has the ability to use a saliva drug test to screen drivers who may be under the influence. When driving or transporting cannabis in Manitoba, 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 Manitoba

Growing medical cannabis is the only legal option for Manitobans to grow their own plants. 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 19

(2) have no prior cannabis convictions

(3) be prescribed medical cannabis by a physician

Manitoba Workplaces & Cannabis

The Workplace Safety and Health Regulation for Alcohol and Drug Consumption requires employers to take all reasonable steps to ensure a worker does not work while impaired. 

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. If cannabis is prescribed for a disabling medical condition, or if the worker has an addiction to cannabis, the employer must accommodate the worker up to undue hardship. Accommodation could include moving the worker from a safety-sensitive position to a non-safety-sensitive position, or working with the worker, a union representative (if applicable) and a medical professional to look at alternative treatments that do not cause impairment.

Medical Cannabis Laws in Manitoba

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

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.
