Home Cultivation

The Cannabis Act allows for individuals to cultivate up to four legal cannabis plants per residence (not per individual in the residence) anywhere on their property. It does however contain a general prohibition on cultivation for anyone under 19. 

Seeds can be purchased legally from an Ontario Cannabis Store.
