You can grow your own cannabis strains at home for personal use in Alberta.

- Landlords may limit or ban growing
What’s the tax rate?
Canada’s federal government has proposed a cannabis excise tax across each province/territory of 10 per cent of the product price, or $1 per gram, whichever is higher. The federal government will hand over 75% of excise tax revenue to provinces for the first two years after legalization.
Because Alberta does not have a sales tax, the province will tax licensed producers 10 per cent of the retail price.
What happens to medical cannabis?
Nothing. Canada’s medical cannabis system remains exactly as it was prior to October 17, 2018.
