Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has announced two recent changes to the Therapeutic Cannabis Program related to qualifying conditions and healthcare provider certifications.

Effective August 2, 2016, ulcerative colitis has been added as a qualifying medical condition for the therapeutic use of cannabis. With the passage of House Bill 1453, New Hampshire residents suffering from ulcerative colitis and an associated symptom are eligible for the program. There are now 18 medical conditions included in the Therapeutic Cannabis Program. The Written Certification for the Therapeutic Use of Cannabis Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol has been updated to include ulcerative colitis as a qualifying medical condition.

Additionally, with the passage of Senate Bill 419, healthcare providers in states bordering New Hampshire are now able to certify that residents of New Hampshire are eligible for the State’s Therapeutic Cannabis Program. Physicians and advanced practice registered nurses licensed in the states of Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont are permitted to issue a Written Certification for the Therapeutic Use of Cannabis to their patients who are residents of New Hampshire.
