You won’t be able to consume cannabis in public.

The legal limit.

In New Brunswick, you can purchase and carry up to 30 grams (or equivalent) at a time. For products that are not dried flower, the equivalent is calculated and automatically added by Cannabis NB at time of purchase, to ensure you cannot exceed the limit in one transaction.

Your cannabis must always be secure.

Once you have purchased cannabis, it must be kept in a secure place that's inaccessible to a person who is under 19 years of age.
