Ottawa, Nov 14 (IBNS): Medical cannabis users are complaining of shortages of marijuana and delays in production, media reports said.

The shortages have started since the time cannabis have been legalised in Canada, report said.

Medical user Clayton Goodwin told CTV News, "The bigger strains that I use are not available."

"I check my licensed producer on the daily and the strains that I need -- because it’s strain-specific to my injuries -- are not available or disappear quickly."

Goodwin has been quoted by CTV News, "It allows both my mental health and pain levels to live -- you live a normal life. I’m not running around, as they say, ‘high’… This is CBD, non-psychoactive.” 

On October 17, Cannabis have been legalised countrywide.

A buyer will need to be at least 18 years or older to obtain it from licensed stores, while some Canadian provinces have set up the age limit to 19.

Canadian adults will be allowed to possess around 30 grams of dried cannabis in public. Exceeding the limit will be deemed illegal and will attract penalty.

The authorities have also stated that buying cannabis from unlicensed dealer or growing more than four plants per household will be treated as illegal.
