Now that the Cannabis Act allows Canadians to grow their own recreational cannabis, you may be thinking that you can soon become a craft cannabis king or queen of some sort. But, you may have neglected to consider one not so little snag; you can only grow a maximum of four plants under the Cannabis Act.

Those four plants can only suffice if you just want to light up a joint once in a while.

What about those that need marijuana for medical reasons?

Fortunately, there is another way for patients who need marijuana to treat their conditions yet the four plants allowed under the Cannabis Act cannot meet their daily cannabis requirements.

Here are four compelling reasons why you should start growing medical cannabis.

You Will Legally Grow More Plants

As already mentioned, the law only allows recreational cannabis users to grow only four plants. However, an ACMPR licence issued by Health Canada can allow you to grow as many plants as your treatment needs require (the upper limit is 463 plants).

You will therefore have all the cannabis you need to make smoothies, edibles, juices or any other cannabis-infused product that you need for your treatment.

You Can Select the Cannabis Varieties You Want to Grow

Not all cannabis strains or varieties will produce the effects that you want. For example, one variety may be good at relieving pain while another may be better suited for calming you down.

With your ACMPR licence in hand, you are free to pick and choose the specific strains that you will grow in order to meet your treatment needs. Think about this, your favorite strains growing right within your home!

You Will No Longer Have to Visit Medical Marijuana Clinics

You may be concerned about the long-term cost of buying the overpriced weed in medical cannabis dispensaries and retail outlets.

Or, you may be concerned that you will be unable to access medical marijuana when you need a fresh supply but the dispensary doesn’t have cannabis supplies at the time you visit.

An excellent way to insulate yourself against those eventualities is by growing your own medical weed.

Select the best seeds from one of the numerous suppliers available across Canada. Many of these suppliers can deliver the seed to your address.

Only start the cultivation process once Health Canada mails you your ACMPR licence, and you will say goodbye to expensive and understocked weed!

You May Develop a Lifelong Passion for Growing Weed

While necessity may have been the driving force behind your interest in growing your own medical weed, there is a possibility that you could end up developing a passion for growing cannabis plants.

In fact, many cannabis growers confess that the love for cultivating cannabis plants grew on them until it became a lifelong passion! And we all know what having a passion can do for your health and wellbeing, don’t we?
