How do I get CBD oil In Quebec?

The cannabis plant is composed up numerous components known as cannabinoids. Although there are numerous cannabinoids that all have different medical benefits, currently, studies and scientists are focus on the two main cannabinoids, CBD and THC. THC is the psychoactive component that is responsible for the ‘high’ that is often associated with the cannabis plant. CBD is not psychoactive and has therapeutic qualities. Due to the therapeutic aspects of CBD, it is known for treating conditions such as anxietyepilepsy and depression.

To gain access to CBD oil , and the correct dosing and strain selection advice, in Quebec, you must be prescribed by a physician or healthcare practitioner. Once prescribed, patients can order directly from any Health Canada approved Licensed Producer and have the medicine delivered directly to their home!

Quebec 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 Quebec, the provincial government created their policies in order to work to protect the public’s safety and health called the Cannabis Regulation Act. Through this, they have restricted certain products from being sold recreationally at the Société Québécoise Du Cannabis (SQDC) which include edibles, confectionaries, topicals, and pre-filled liquid vaporizers (or vape pens).

Consumption and Possession of Cannabis in Quebec

The minimum age for cannabis purchases and consumption is set at 21 years old. Anyone 21 or older is allowed to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis in public and up to 150 grams in their home or private residence. The act of smoking or vaping any products in public places is illegal in Quebec. Cannabis can be consumed in a private residence and certain designated smoking areas. 

Driving under the influence of any type is illegal. If driving under the influence of cannabis or consuming cannabis in a vehicle, one will face steep fines possibly jail time. When driving or transporting cannabis in Quebec, it must be sealed in its original sealed  packaging, within the legal limit amount, and out of reach of the driver and passengers. 

The Cannabis Regulation Act states that employers may choose to prohibit the use of cannabis within their own respective office policy.

H3 Cultivation & Growing Cannabis Plants in Quebec

It is prohibited to cultivate or own a cannabis plant in Quebec unless you have obtained a medical cultivation permit issued by Health Canada and was signed off by a healthcare practitioner. 

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

Medical Cannabis Laws in Quebec

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

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.
