Adults in Canada are just 5 days away from legal access to cannabis for recreational purposes. Coincidentally, medical cannabis patients in the country that have acquired a medical cannabis prescription from a medical provider are able to fly within Canada legally while carrying up to 5 grams of cannabis per day.

The limit is a 30-day supply which is equivalent to 150 grams of cannabis or just over 5 ounces of cannabis.

Adult Recreational Limits

According to The Fresh Toast after legalization takes place on October 17th, any adult over the age of 18 will be permitted to fly within the borders of Canada with up to 30 grams of dried cannabis. This is the limit on how much cannabis adult Canadians are able to possess in public.

This limit is on dried cannabis or the equivalent of non-dried forms of cannabis. This is also the limit on how much cannabis adults can gift each other legally once regulations take effect in 5 days.

If you are a light consumer, this should be more than enough to keep you elevated on a short vacation.

Cannabis Equivalency

According to the Cannabis Act, 1 gram of dried cannabis is equivalent to 5 grams of fresh cannabis, 15 grams of edible product, 70 grams of liquid product, 0.25 grams of concentrates in any form or 1 cannabis seed.

This means that by all technicalities, Canadian adults could travel with up to 150 grams of fresh cannabis legally.

The Benefits of Flying with Cannabis

There are many benefits to these policies that will help both cannabis patients and consumers. The biggest benefits of course are for patients as these policies allow for them to travel anywhere in Canada with their medicine.

These policies are also beneficial for recreational consumers as it will allow them to travel to any destination within Canada without worrying whether they will be able to get ganja when they reach their destination.

Hopefully, as cannabis laws continue to be reformed across the United States we will see similar policies go into effect.
