He was given a 21-day home curfew between 8pm and 6am as part of a community order for possession of the drugs.
Larner has suffered from PTSD and insomnia since he was stabbed in the terrorist attack, Croydon Magistrates' Court heard.
District Judge Nigel McClean said: 'This offence was aggravated by the fact that there was a more serious quantity involved.
'I'm going to make a stand alone community order of a 21-day curfew, you will be required to be at home from 8pm to 6am daily.'

Larner was spared jail in 2018 after a video emerged of him spitting at a black photographer and shouting abuse in Elephant and Castle.
The Millwall fan then launched into a racist outburst at his local MP's office in Brixton.
He later admitted racially aggravated common assault and religiously aggravated harassment.
Larner was sentenced to eight weeks, suspended for 12 months, for spitting on the photographer and fined £50 for his abuse at the MP's office.
He was also banned from visiting his MP's office for two years.

After the London Bridge attack Larner moved to a caravan site outside Canterbury but was then caught with 230 grams of amphetamine on another occasion and handed a 12-month community order.
Larner was then arrested and taken into custody in March last year after he moved back into his mother's home.
Larner, of Ledbury Street, Southwark, admitted possession of a class B drug and was sentenced to a 21-day curfew.
