Therapeutic Cannabis Program 2018 Data Report

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has released the Therapeutic Cannabis Program 2018 Data Report Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol. The report provides information from the Therapeutic Cannabis Registry, the annual reports from the Alternative Treatment Centers, and the Qualifying Patient Satisfaction Surveys. It provides details about qualifying patients and designated caregivers who were active in the program as of June 30, 2018.

DHHS provides this report annually to the New Hampshire Legislature’s Health and Human Services Oversight Committee, the New Hampshire Board of Medicine, and the New Hampshire Board of Nursing. The report provides important information on patterns of certification in several categories: qualifying patient and designated caregiver, location, age, medical condition, symptom or side effect, and medical provider. Data from the report can then be used for analysis and research to inform future policy, educational, and clinical decisions.

In addition, the 2018 report contains an addendum related to SB 388 from the 2018 legislative session regarding the expansion of therapeutic cannabis dispensary locations in the state.

As of November 29, 2018, the program is being used by 7,120 qualifying patients, 449 designated caregivers, and 998 certifying providers.
