By Hippie Grow Shop

August 21, 2020

Do you have a medical marijuana prescription? Want to try your hand at growing your own cannabis yourself at home and be able to grow up to 463 plants? Then you need an ACMPR grow license. Without one, then you are bound to the same number of plants that can be grown at home for recreational use which is 4 plants per residence.

What Is an ACMPR Grow License?

The Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes (ACMPR) grow license is a special license that allows patients to easily grow their own cannabis or obtain it from an approved, licensed grower.

Didn’t the Cannabis Act Do Away with ACMPR?

Well technically, ACMPR was replaced with a new medical marijuana program with the passing of the Cannabis Act. However, many government officials still refer to those seeking medical marijuana licenses and the medical marijuana program as ACMPR.

How Does One Get an ACMPR Grow License?

The process is not that difficult. To apply, you must have a medical marijuana prescription from a licensed practitioner. Next, you fill out an application form and submit the required documentation. Next, you submit your prescription and application form to Health Canada. Health Canada will register and issue your medical cannabis grow license.

With the Legalization of Cannabis, Will Medical Marijuana Programs Disappear?

Some people seem to think with the legalization of cannabis for recreational purposes, there is no longer a need for medical marijuana programs. This simply is not the case. Medical marijuana is its own program that is different from the recreational program. Currently, they have no effect on each other.

How Long Does It Take to Get an ACMPR Grow License?

On average it takes 3-8 weeks from start to finish.

How Hard Is It Really to Get an ACMPR Grow License?

The process is much easier than you think. You need a photo ID, fill out an application, schedule a telehealth visit with the practitioner, get your marijuana prescription and send everything off to Health Canada. Before you know it, you can be growing hundreds of plants at home!
