Strain Names: No More XYZ!

Are you tired of being confused by the strain abbreviations on our website and product labels? So are we!

Fortunately, the New Hampshire Legislature passed a bill this year that allows us to include strain names on our website and requires us to use them on our labels. HB 240, which was signed by Gov. Chris Sununu in June, went into effect today.

As a result of this bill’s passage, Prime ATC has implemented these welcome changes:

  • The menus on our website have all been updated to include strain names. No more struggling to remember which letters go with which strain when placing an online order!
  • Beginning today, all products that we package will include the strain name on the label. (Note: we are not re-labeling our current inventory, so you will continue to see abbreviations on products labeled prior to August 3.)

This improvement to the Therapeutic Cannabis Program will reduce confusion for patients, caregivers, and dispensary staff. But don’t take our word for it – check out the menu and see for yourself!

We look forward to our next opportunity to serve you in Chichester or Merrimack.

Prime’s 5-Year Cannaversary Will Take Place Aug. 28!

Mark your calendars for Prime ATC’s 5-Year Cannaversary! Please note that our Merrimack location will be CLOSED on Saturday, August 28, so our staff and patients will be able to attend the Cannaversary celebration in Chichester.

We look forward to sharing more details in the coming weeks!

Some Flower Prices Further Reduced!

A few weeks ago, we reduced our flower prices to make therapeutic cannabis more affordable. After implementing our new tiered pricing system, we received some valuable feedback and decided to make further adjustments that will benefit patients!

The most impactful changes are the prices for 3.5 grams of flower. We have reduced the price of our top-tier Platinum flower to $47.50, down from $55. Our Gold flower is now $45 (down from $50), and our Silver flower is now $42.50 (down from $45).

We also dropped the price for 7g of flower by $2.50 in each tier. Other prices have not changed since the original announcement. Current prices for all tiers and sizes are shown here:

If you’d like to place an order, please visit out our updated menu online! We hope to see you soon in either Merrimack or Chichester.

Annual Patient Satisfaction Survey

Each year, the Therapeutic Cannabis Program asks all registered patients to complete a brief patient satisfaction survey. Your feedback is helpful to state regulators and policymakers as they evaluate the program’s progress, and it is especially helpful to us at Prime ATC as we are always working to improve our products and services.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey online. If you’d like help with the survey, our friendly and professional staff at the dispensaries in Merrimack or Chichester would be more than happy to assist you.

Opportunity to Win Store Credits!

This year, all patients who complete the survey and are registered with Prime ATC will be entered into a raffle. Here are the prizes:

               First Prize — $250 store credit

               Second Prize — $150 store credit

               Third Prize — $100 store credit

We will conduct the raffle and notify the winners after the survey period ends in early September.

Please complete the survey today for a chance to win. Thank you!

We Are Updating Our Mask Policy

Beginning tomorrow, July 22, we will no longer ask individuals who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear masks at our dispensary locations in Merrimack and Chichester. We will continue to take sensible precautions, such as requiring daily temperature checks for staff members, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you have been fully vaccinated, you are now welcome to enter the dispensaries without wearing a mask. We ask that you continue to maintain a respectful distance from others while inside the dispensaries. 

If you have not been vaccinated, we respectfully ask that you continue to wear a mask when you enter the dispensaries.

If you are uncomfortable entering the dispensaries for any reason, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of our curbside pickup option (Merrimack) or our drive-thru (Chichester).

If you are experiencing any symptoms associated with a respiratory infection, regardless of whether or not you have been vaccinated, please wear a mask to protect others. Better yet, place an order for pickup or drive-thru so you will not need to enter the building.

We will continue to evaluate our policies as new information becomes available. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Prime ATC is reducing flower prices!

Dear Patients,

On behalf of our dedicated, hardworking staff at Prime ATC, I am very pleased to announce that we are reducing our flower prices to make therapeutic cannabis more affordable for patients. Our menu has already been updated to reflect the new prices.

Why are we doing this now? The answer is simple: many patients have asked us to lower our prices, and we have finally reached a place where we are able to accommodate these requests. In late 2020, we completed a much-needed expansion of our cultivation space, which more than doubled our capacity to produce cannabis flower. This new space incorporates everything we have learned from the past 5 years of operations, enabling our talented growers to improve both quality and efficiency.

As a New Hampshire nonprofit organization, our mission is to provide patients with the highest quality therapeutic cannabis products and exemplary service at affordable prices. We believe this price reduction is an important step forward for Prime ATC as we continue working to provide the best possible service to patients.

So how will the new flower pricing schedule work?

We have evaluated all of our strains based on various factors including production efficiency and patients’ preferences, and we have placed each strain in a tier: either silver, gold, or platinum. Strains in the silver tier will be reduced to $15 for a gram, $45 for 3.5 grams, $85 for 7 grams, $160 for 14 grams, and $295 for one ounce (28 grams). On average, this represents a more than 15% reduction from our previous prices!

Strains in the gold tier will be priced at $17 for a gram, $50 for 3.5 grams, $90 for 7 grams, $170 for 14 grams, and $325 for one ounce (28 grams), a substantial reduction from our previous prices. And strains in the platinum tier will be priced at $19 for a gram, $55 for 3.5 grams, $95 for 7 grams, $180 for 14 grams, and $355 for one ounce (28 grams).

We are also cultivating dozens of new strains in our new grow space, so you will see new strains from us on a monthly and sometimes weekly basis. These introductory strains will initially be priced the same as  the gold tier so patients can test them at a reasonable price and help us determine if they should be permanently added to our menu on either the silver, gold, or platinum tier.

On top of these reductions, our 10% compassionate care discount will remain available for eligible patients.

To see these changes for yourself, check out our updated menu online.

Let us know what you think!

We hope you are as happy to receive this news as we are to be delivering it. If you have questions about this change or any comments you would like to share with us, we’d love to hear from you. Please share your thoughts with us via email at info@primeATC.com.

Although we are reducing prices, that doesn’t mean we will be cutting corners. Prime ATC will continue to cultivate the highest quality cannabis flowers for our patients, while always striving to maximize freshness and consistency. And best of all, we will continue to offer discounts and lower prices whenever we are able.

We greatly appreciate your support, without which this price reduction would not have become possible. And we look forward to seeing you at one of our dispensary locations soon!

Sincerely,

Keenan Blum

CEO, Prime Alternative Treatment Centers of New Hampshire
