"• possess up to 30 grams of legal cannabis, dried or equivalent in non-dried form in public
"• share up to 30 grams of legal cannabis with other adults

"• make cannabis products, such as food and drinks, at home as long as organic solvents are not used to create concentrated products
"As of October 17, 2019, cannabis edible products and concentrates are legal for sale.

"Possession limits for cannabis products
"The possession limits in the Cannabis Act are based on dried cannabis. Equivalents were developed for other cannabis products to identify what their possession limit would be.

"One (1) gram of dried cannabis is equal to:

"• 5 grams of fresh cannabis
"• 15 grams of edible product
"• 70 grams of liquid product
"• 0.25 grams of concentrates (solid or liquid)
"• 1 cannabis plant seed
"This means, for example, that an adult 18 years of age or older, can legally possess 150 grams of fresh cannabis.

"Cannabis for medical purposes
"The current regime for medical cannabis will continue to allow access to cannabis for people who have the authorization of their healthcare provider."
