How do I get CBD oil in P.E.I.?

CBD is one of the two main compounds that is found in the cannabis plant, the other compound being THC. Unlike THC, CBD is non- psychoactive, meaning that CBD is not responsible for the ‘high’ or euphoric feeling that is often associated with cannabis. CBD has therapeutic qualities and is known to help treat conditions like anxietydepression, and epilepsy. Although cannabis is recreationally legalized, most licensed producers are reserving their CBD products for their medical patients.

In PEI, 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.

Anyone 19 or older is allowed to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis in public if they do not have a medical cannabis prescription. In accordance with P.E.I.’s smoke-free places act, it is against the law to smoke or vape in any public space or workplace, and they have designated smoking areas in certain places.

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

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.
