Yes. As of October 17th, 2018, the sale of recreational cannabis by authorized distributors has been legalized across Canada. As a fully licensed and accredited business, Clarity Cannabis™ has the legal authority to offer non-medical cannabis products to the adult use market.
In public, individuals are allowed to carry no more than 30 grams of cannabis on their person. Only British Columbia and Quebec have set upper limits on the amount of cannabis that may be stored on private property at 1,000 grams and 150 grams respectively. In all other provinces, individuals are generally free to store as much cannabis as they wish on private property butmust abide by the rules of their tenancy and strata bylaws or rental agreement.
Purchases are limited to 30 grams of dried cannabis or the equivalent in cannabis oil and/or capsules per day. This is federally mandated and in line with the maximum amount of cannabis that can be carried by an individual in public.
Federal guidelines state that no more than 4 cannabis plants may be propagated in one household. This is subject to restrictions imposed by landlords or strata bylaws. Two provinces – Manitoba and Quebec – have banned the personal production of cannabis outright.
Laws vary by province, but typically public consumption is prohibited wherever tobacco consumption is prohibited. Some provinces have imposed additional restrictions or banned public consumption outright, and it’s your responsibility to abide these laws. If in doubt, err on the side of caution and wait until you’re home.
As per current legislation, Clarity™ is licensed to distribute cannabis flower, pre-rolled joints, infused oils, capsules, sublingual sprays, and seeds.
The Canadian government has committed to legalizing a wide array of cannabis products including cannabis-infused food items (edibles), beverages, and topicals, as well as concentrated cannabis extracts. Legalization of these items is anticipated to be finalized in fall of 2019, though this date is subject to change.
Cannabinoids are chemicals unique to the cannabis plant that interact with the Endocannabinoid System. They’re the driving force behind the effects of cannabis and achieve these effects by interacting with “Cannabinoid Receptors” -CB1 and CB2. The most famous cannabinoids are THC, which directly “activates” the CB1 receptor and produces a euphoric high, and CBD, which indirectly affects both cannabinoid receptors and tends to produce a non-intoxicating sense of calm and well-being. In short, cannabinoids are what make cannabis cannabis!
Terpenes are aromatic chemicals that afford plants their unique scents. From sage to thyme, pepper to parsley, and on to cannabis, terpenes are behind the powerful punch of most herbs. Terpenes can also produce effects in the body ranging from relaxation to alertness, arousal, and beyond, and studies suggest they contribute to the effects of common herbal medicines like lavender, mint, and chamomile.
