Cannabis Possession Limits in Canada

Now that cannabis is legal across Canada, do you know how much you’re allowed to carry? We know that the possession limits can be confusing, but EC has got your back.

If you’re of legal age in your province, you can purchase and carry in public up to 30 grams of dried cannabis. Home possession limits vary from province to province: 1,000 gram limit at home in British Columbia, 150 gram home limit in both Nunavut and Quebec, and no home possession limit in every other province.

Cannabis products are available in a variety of forms, as not everyone consumes the same way you might. These different product forms also mean different possession limits to stay legal, and we’ve got you covered.

One (1) gram of dried flower cannabis is equivalent to:

  • 5 grams of fresh flower cannabis
  • 15 grams of edible products (not currently regulated in Canada; will be no later than October 17, 2019)
  • 70 grams of liquid products
  • 0.25 grams of cannabis concentrates (not currently regulated in Canada; will be no later than October 17, 2019)
  • 1 cannabis plant seed

We know it’s a bit complex. These different equivalencies of products mean that you can purchase multiple product types to still be within the 30 gram legal limit.
