How Much Cannabis Can You Legally Possess?

Under the federal Cannabis Act, adults who are 18 years of age or older can legally possess cannabis within certain limits. It is important to note that although the federal minimum age for possession of cannabis in public is 18, most provinces (like us in Ontario) and territories have raised the minimum age requirement to 19, and in Quebec, the age is 21.

 

Individuals who have attained the legal age of possession in their province can legally possess up to 30 grams of legal cannabis, dried. But what about all of the other wonderful forms that cannabis comes in besides dried flower? Well, the Federal Government has developed the equivalent amounts for other cannabis products to identify what their possession limit would be. Take a look below.

 

30-grams of Dried Flower is Equivalent to…

  • 150 grams of fresh cannabis
  • 450 grams of edible product
  • 2,100 grams of liquid product (2.1 litres)
  • 7.5 grams of concentrates
  • 30 cannabis plant seeds
  • You are permitted to grow for personal use up to 4 plants per residence (not per person) from licensed seeds or seedlings

 

Under the Act, one (1) gram of Dried Cannabis is Equal to…

  • 5 grams of fresh cannabis
  • 15 grams of edible product
  • 70 grams of liquid product
  • 25 grams of concentrates (solid or liquid)
  • 1 cannabis plant seed

 

Possession over the limit is a criminal offence with penalties of up to 5 years in jail. We encourage you to purchase your cannabis products from a legal retailer, like The Hunny Pot (of course).
