BC-based medical cannabis producer Canna Farms has announced strains for sale as clones to registered patients. Beginning November 21, 2016, Canna Farms will begin taking pre-orders for live cannabis plants. They expect shipments to go out by mid January.
Canna Farms will initially be offering White Widow, Chernobyl, and CBD Skunk Haze (details and pricing for each strain can be found below). Full details form Canna Farms can be found here.
Two Plants (of the same strain) = $175. Four (4) Plants (of the same strain) = $240. Four Plants (two different strains) = $315 (plus applicable taxes)
Six Plants (three different strains) = $455 (plus applicable taxes). Each plant will be cut to order. Sales of clones are only made in groups of two.
Canna Farms is now the second producer to be selling clones after Health Canada introduced new rules in August that allow registered, authorized patients to grow their own cannabis at home or to designate someone to grow for them. The first was Whistler Medical Marijuana, who announced their clone program in October. Whistler is charging $750 for 5 clones (of the same strain), with subsequent clones at $20 each.
Canna Farms notes all clone sales will be final. The issue of how to deal with problems in shipping have been an expressed concern of licensed producers.
Individuals must have specific authorization from Health Canada before they purchase starting materials like seeds or clones.
