How to become a Licensed Producer to grow, distribute and sell cannabis in Canada.



The Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR)

On August 11, 2016, Health Canada announced the new Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).

What does this mean for Licensed Producers (LP)?

The 34 commercial Licensed Producers across Canada, which are currently supplying close to 70,000 Canadians, are expected to continue to be the main source of safe, quality-controlled cannabis for medical purposes.

In addition to continuing to provide access to dried or fresh marijuana or cannabis oil, these licensed producers will now also be the only legal source of starting materials (seeds or plants) and interim supply to individuals who are registered with Health Canada to produce or who have designated someone to produce for them, a limited amount of cannabis for their own medical purposes.

How to commercially produce, distribute and sell cannabis legally in Canada.

Do the regulations allow storefront operations?

No. Access to cannabis for medical purposes is only permitted under the terms and conditions set out in the regulations. Storefront operations selling marijuana, commonly known as dispensaries and compassion clubs are not authorized to sell cannabis for medical or any other purposes.

These operations are illegally supplied, and provide products that are unregulated and may be unsafe. Illegal storefront distribution and sale of cannabis are subject to law enforcement action.

The only legal commercial source of safe, quality-controlled cannabis for medical purposes in Canada is through purchase directly from one of the producers licenced by Health Canada.

These new regulations will continue to be evaluated to ensure that individuals authorized to access cannabis for their own medical purposes have reasonable access.

Health Canada is also committed to studying other models, including pharmacy distribution, to provide access to cannabis for medical purposes.
