Concord, NH – The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued a conditional registration certificate for the cultivation of therapeutic cannabis to Sanctuary ATC. Sanctuary ATC’s cultivation center in Rochester, New Hampshire, is the first to receive DHHS approval to begin cultivating therapeutic cannabis in New Hampshire.

DHHS is implementing the Therapeutic Cannabis Program, which will include four dispensary locations and three cultivation centers. Once Sanctuary has completed cultivating therapeutic cannabis, DHHS will inspect Sanctuary’s dispensing location in Plymouth, New Hampshire, to determine if it is ready to begin operations. DHHS will then issue a registration certificate without conditions to Sanctuary ATC, permitting Sanctuary to begin dispensing therapeutic cannabis to qualifying patients and designated caregivers who have registered with Sanctuary. The expected timeframe for Sanctuary’s dispensary to begin operations is Spring 2016.

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 This information is intended to assist in correctly completing the required applications.
