What is B.C.’s approach to cannabis legalization?

The Province of BC has made the following regulatory decisions. Adults 19+:

  • May possess up to 30 grams of legal cannabis, dried or equivalent in non-dried form, in public.
  • May share up to 30 grams of legal cannabis with other adults (giving or selling to youth is a criminal offense and there are several measures that help prevent youth from accessing cannabis within the Cannabis Act).
  • May buy dried or fresh cannabis and cannabis oil from a provincially-licensed retailer.
  • May make cannabis products, such as food and drinks, at home as long as organic solvents are not used to create concentrates.

The Original FARM is told Cannabis edible products and concentrates will be legal for sale approximately one year after the Cannabis Act came into force on October 17th, 2018.
