LINKS & INFORMATION LEAFLET (PDF): Current Regulations Impacting Cannabinoid Products for Pets in Canada (information provided by the Controlled Substances and Cannabis Branch of Health Canada)

The Cannabis Regulations and the Industrial Hemp Regulations, which support the Cannabis Act, create a strict framework for controlling the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis and industrial hemp in Canada. A copy of the final regulations for edible cannabiscannabis extracts, and cannabis topicals is currently available here. Health Canada has published the following guidance documents to assist with the application process:

·    Cannabis licensing application guide

·    Good Production Practices Guide for Cannabis

·    Physical Security Measures Guide for Cannabis

·    Industrial hemp licensing application guide; and

·    Guidance for health products containing cannabis or for use with cannabis

·    Analytical Testing and Research Application Guide

·    Cannabis Licence Management Guide

Health Canada is accepting applications under the Cannabis Act and its supporting regulations through its online Cannabis Tracking and Licensing System (CTLS). Detailed instructions on how to submit an application through the CTLS portal, including the CTLS getting started guide, are available here.

Please note that the CTLS user guide is being shared with individuals only once they receive access to the CTLS.

Health Canada has maintained a distinct system to provide patients with reasonable access to cannabis for medical purposes. The regulations enable individuals who have the support of their health care practitioner (including those under 18 years of age) to access cannabis for medical purposes by purchasing from a federally-licensed seller of cannabis for medical purposes; by cultivating their own cannabis, if they are over the age of 18; or by designating someone to grow cannabis on their behalf.

Detailed instructions on how to access cannabis for medical purposes from federally-licensed sellers are available here.

Detailed instructions on how to register under the Cannabis Regulations to possess or produce cannabis for an individual’s own medical purposes (or designate someone to produce it for them), including the application forms, medical document and safety and security guidelines, are available here.

For more information on the legalization and regulation of cannabis, you can also refer to our website: canada.ca/cannabis.
