Toy Drive Begins!

For the third year in a row, we are partnering with Chaos and Kindness to collect toys for children in need. Your donations have brought smiles to many young faces in the last two holiday seasons, and this year we are hoping to spread even more cheer!

We believe every child deserves a toy regardless of their economic circumstances, so we are encouraging patients and caregivers to donate toys at both of our dispensary locations. As an added incentive, for every unwrapped toy donated between November 25 and December 17, you will receive one entry into a raffle.

First prize will be a $250 Prime store credit, second prize will be a $150 store credit, and third prize will be a $100 store credit. We will hold separate raffles at each dispensary location.

You may enter the raffle as many times as you’d like. Just bring unwrapped toys to either dispensary between now and December 17!

Green Friday +Plus+ Sale!

Our “Green Friday Sale” will last three full days, so we have decided to call it a “Green Friday Plus Sale!” The sale will begin on Friday (November 25) and it will continue on Saturday and Monday.

For starters, this sale will provide another opportunity to stock up on our best-selling LA Kush Cake flower: 1-ounce containers of LA will be on sale again for $275 each.

But that’s only the beginning! Patients who spend between $100 and $249.99 will receive 5% off their entire order, and patients who spend $250 or more will receive 10% off! (Yes, this means ounces of LA flower will actually cost only $247.50!)

Our Green Friday Plus Sale will also be a great opportunity to pick up one or more of our Prime Holiday Boxes. We look forward to seeing you soon in either Chichester or Merrimack!

Seniors, military veterans, and patients enrolled in the Compassionate Care Program will receive an additional 10% discount. An order must total at least $100 after all other discounts are applied to receive 5% off, and an order must total at least $250 after all other discounts are applied to receive 10% off. No rainchecks. Orders must be picked up by end of sale to receive discounts.

Holiday Boxes Are Back!

Patients told us they loved our holiday boxes last year, so this year we are offering six exciting options!

Supplies are limited, so visit our menu today if you’d like to place an order. Here are the choices we have assembled for you:

CannaBomb Box ($15)

To create this delicious holiday experience, we enclose Prime’s THC-infused hot cocoa mix in a beautiful chocolate shell. Just drop the “bomb” into a mug of steaming hot water or milk, give it a stir, and watch as it transforms into a delicious beverage. Each CannaBomb contains 50mg of THC, so this might be a good product to share with another patient on a cold winter day!

Ugly Sweater Pre-roll Box ($99)

If you prefer pre-rolls, you will love this “ugly sweater” pre-roll sampler. In addition to our popular LA Kush Cake, Kush Mints, and Sour Kush, the box includes nine blended pre-rolls. These include Heavenly Sativa + Golden Goat, LA Kush Cake + Star Mints, and Kush Mints + Temple of the Dawg. Try them all and discover which combinations work best for you!

November Classes

We are pleased to announce several November classes and support group meetings for the benefit of patients. If you’d like to sign up for any of these classes or meetings, we’d love to have you – just give us a call at either dispensary or email us at info@primeatc.com.

First, we will offer a New Patient Orientation class via Zoom at 10am on Friday, November 4. If that date doesn’t work for you, we’ll offer the same class in person at 10am on Saturday, November 19, in Merrimack (Unit C).

But that’s not all! For patients and caregivers who are interested in learning more about terpenes, we are offering a Terpene class in Merrimack at 10am on Wednesday, November 30. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the aromatic compounds that contribute to the flavor and effects of cannabis.

List of November classes, times, and locations.

We are also offering three support groups this month. At our cancer support group, we will discuss patients’ experiences using cannabis to treat cancer. Our senior support group is intended for older patients. Lastly, our patient support group is open to any registered patients who would like to discuss their therapeutic cannabis experiences.

These support groups will all take place via Zoom at 5pm on the following dates: Tuesday, November 8 (Cancer), Wednesday, November 16 (Senior), and Tuesday, November 22 (Patient).

List of November support groups, times, and locations

Finally, we will be setting up an “equipment table” at the dispensaries on Friday, November 11 (Merrimack) and Friday, November 25 (Chichester). This will be a great opportunity to learn more about the various types of equipment that are available to therapeutic cannabis patients and how to use them.

Here’s a calendar for the full month of November classes and support groups. Again, just give us a call or send us an email if you’d like to sign up!

Price Cut: All Vapes!

Our inflation-busting efforts continue with a price reduction on all vapes! All Prime ATC vape cartridges are now priced at $48, down from $55.

They’re even more affordable when you buy in bulk. Patients can now get three vapes for $138 ($46 each), five for $220 ($44 each) or ten for $420 ($42 each). We currently have more than 20 different vapes on our menus, and this price reduction will make it easier to try more options!

graphic illustrating price reductions for all vapes

Like all Prime ATC products, we produce all our vapes in-house using oil from plants we grow ourselves. An independent lab tests all our products, so patients can always know what they are getting and feel confident in the quality.

Our staff has worked very hard to make this price reduction possible. We’ve already reduced prices on concentrates, kief, oral syringes, and tinctures this year, but we didn’t want to stop there. We always love seeing lower prices on our menus because we know patients will have an easier time affording therapeutic cannabis!

Meet the Winner!

At our Cannaversary event, we asked patients to vote on which new strain (a.k.a. “cultivar”) we should grow next. The winner was a sativa called “El’s Army,” and we are pleased to report that it is making good progress!

photo of voting at Cannaversary
After tallying the votes, we declared “El’s Army” the winner and planted these four seeds.

El’s Army, bred by Dynasty Genetics/Professor P, is a cross of two highly regarded sativas: Moose and Lobsta x Super Silver Haze.

Moose and Lobsta has emerged as a popular sativa-dominant hybrid in New England. It is known for its fruity, skunky smell and overtones of diesel fuel. Super Silver Haze is an award-winning sativa prized for its energizing, uplifting effects. We can never be sure what to expect when we plant a new cultivar, but we are optimistic that El’s Army will be a great addition to our menus!

Like proud parents, our growers have been taking photos of El’s Army at every stage of its development. We look forward to showing you each step in the process as El’s Army grows. Here’s an adorable shot of one of our tiny sprouts wearing the shell of its seed like a hat:

This little “soldier” seems excited to join El’s Army!

The four seeds we planted quickly developed into four happy-looking seedlings. We fed them a steady diet of water, light, and nutrients and continued taking photos.

In the third week, we potted each seedling in its own bucket labeled with the date and a barcode. This label is required by N.H. law, and it will allow us to track each plant from seedling to sale.

Now that these seedlings have been potted, the ceiling is the limit!

So What’s Next for the Winner?

We planted these seeds on August 24 and potted them on September 9, but that was only the beginning of a long process. If all goes well, we expect these plants will be ready to harvest by late January. After harvest, they will need to be shucked, cured, trimmed, and submitted for independent lab testing before the flower can be packaged and sent to the dispensaries. In other words, El’s Army won’t be built in a day!

Ultimately, many cultivars show promise but only a few will exceed expectations. Even within the same cultivar, we can expect that each female plant may develop its own unique flavors, aromas, effects, and appearance. And since much can go wrong during the growing process, this makes it even more satisfying when things go exactly right.

We are excited to share the progress of this promising new cultivar, and we look forward to providing future updates!

Prime at Evolution Expo

Sunday is usually a day of rest for Prime ATC, but we’ve decided to make an exception by attending Evolution Expo on Sunday, October, 16. Alicia Bennett and Matt Simon will be in Concord to spread the word about New Hampshire’s therapeutic cannabis program.

The event is free and will take place at the Grappone Conference Center (map). We welcome you to stop by and visit our table anytime between 10am and 4pm!

Mind, Body, and Spirit Evolution Expo, 55+ vendors, 14 workshops and presentations

Hosted by Holistic NH, which seeks to connect patients and providers with alternative healing modalities, this event looks like a great opportunity to spread knowledge about therapeutic cannabis. We look forward to attending our first Evolution Expo!
