temescalQualifying patients and designated caregivers registered with Temescal Wellness, Inc.’s Lebanon dispensary will be able to obtain therapeutic cannabis beginning Sunday, May 15, 2016, when the dispensary will open. The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued a registration certificate to Temescal to allow the Alternative Treatment Center (ATC) to begin operations at its Lebanon location.

The Lebanon dispensary is the third ATC in New Hampshire to  begin dispensary operations. Temescal’s Dover dispensary opened on May 5 and Sanctuary ATC’s Plymouth dispensary on April 30, 2016. Prime ATC, which is completing construction of its cultivation center, expects to open its dispensary in Merrimack later this summer.

Qualifying patients and designated caregivers must select one of the four ATC dispensaries and can only obtain therapeutic cannabis at their designated ATC. Applications for potentially qualifying patients and designated caregivers, medical provider certification, and other important information can be found on the Therapeutic Cannabis Program page on the DHHS website at http://www.dhhs.nh.gov/oos/tcp/index.htm.
