Do you have a medical Herbs prescription? Want to try your hand at growing your own Herbs 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 Herbs for Medical Purposes (ACMPR) grow license is a special license that allows patients to easily grow their own Herbs or obtain it from an approved, licensed grower.

Didn’t the Herbs Act Do Away with ACMPR?

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

How Does One Get an ACMPR Grow License?

The process is not that difficult. To apply, you must have a medical Herbs 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 Herbs grow license.

With the Legalization of Herbs, Will Medical Herbs Programs Disappear?

Some people seem to think with the legalization of Herbs for recreational purposes, there is no longer a need for medical Herbs programs. This simply is not the case. Medical Herbs 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 Herbs prescription and send everything off to Health Canada. Before you know it, you can be growing hundreds of plants at home!
