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).

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!

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!

Affordable Concentrates!

Great news: we are reducing prices for all our concentrates, effective Thursday, September 1!

Price reductions on all concentrates

Diamonds/Isolates
1 gram was $80, 
now only $59!
.5 gram was $40, 
now only $32!

Kief
1 gram was $45, 
now only $35!
.5 gram was $25, 
now only $20.50!

Shatter, Budder, and Crumble
1gram was $70, 
now only $49! 
.5 gram was $35, 
now only $27! 

Changes take effect September 1

We are reducing these prices because we are committed to making therapeutic cannabis as affordable as possible for patients. Keeping up with medical bills and other living expenses can be difficult in the best of times, and unfortunately, we all know these are not the best of times.

Prices for many consumer products and services have increased dramatically this year due to inflation, and inflation has also resulted in increased costs for Prime. Fortunately, our dedicated production staff has been working hard to overcome these challenges. This price reduction would not have been possible if not for our staff’s commitment to serving patients!

You may remember that we significantly reduced our flower prices last summer, and last fall we launched a loyalty program aimed at making therapeutic cannabis more affordable. This price reduction for concentrates is only our most recent effort to reduce costs for patients, and it will not be the last. We will continue to evaluate our pricing on an ongoing basis and seek additional opportunities to improve the affordability of our products.

We will also be sure to maintain the same standard of quality you have come to expect from Prime. Thanks, and we look forward to the next opportunity to serve you! If you’d like to place an order, visit our menu.

Supporting Wellness for Injured Veterans

Azimuth Check Foundation is an all-volunteer organization that “helps heroes find their way by providing injured warriors challenging year-round athletic activities that create wellness in an atmosphere of camaraderie.” Based in New Hampshire, they sponsor and support athletic events throughout northern New England to benefit veterans, first responders, and medical personnel with disabilities.

According to the organization’s website, financial contributions “will help us in many key ways, such as: securing indoor and outdoor event locations, providing amenities to event participants, renting or purchasing sporting equipment and adaptive sporting equipment, and reaching out to sponsors, participants, and partners.”

We are eager to support Azimuth Check Foundation for our August Community Outreach project. For each 4mL tincture sold in August, we will donate $1, and for each 12mL tincture sold, we will donate $3.

For more information on the types of tinctures we have available, click here.

Live Music at Cannaversary!

We had a lot of fun with the dunk tank at last year’s Cannaversary, but this year we will have live music instead! We look forward to introducing a new acoustic performer at the beginning of each hour. The event is scheduled for 10am to 3pm on Saturday, August, 20, in the large parking lot at Prime ATC’s Chichester location (349 Dover Road). Here are the artists who will be performing for us:

  • 10am: Lucas Gallo
  • 11am: Kate West
  • Noon: Lauren Hurley
  • 1pm: Tyler Levs
  • 2pm: Andy Laliotis Acoustic Trio

All are welcome to join us for this outdoor educational event! It’s a great opportunity to learn about therapeutic cannabis in New Hampshire. Prime’s staff will be available throughout the event to answer questions.

Please note that only registered N.H. patients and caregivers may enter the dispensary, and on-site consumption of cannabis is prohibited.

Our Merrimack dispensary will be closed all day on Saturday so our staff and patients can attend this event. There is a Facebook event page here if you’d like to RSVP and invite friends. We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you in Chichester on Saturday, August 20!

Caregiver Applications Just Got Easier

Good news: New Hampshire is making it easier to register as a designated caregiver! Beginning July 24, the state will no longer require a state and federal background check for caregiver applicants. See below for an official announcement from the Department of Health and Human Services’ website:

screenshot of official announcement that criminal background checks and fingerprinting are no longer required for designated caregivers, effective July 24.

The state does not charge application or renewal fees for caregivers. If you or somebody you know would like to register as a designated caregiver, the updated application forms are available here.

Over the years, we’ve met countless patients who could benefit from the assistance of a caregiver. Unfortunately, the criminal background check requirement presented an expensive and unnecessary obstacle. We are confident that this change will improve accessibility for many patients!

Super Skunk Returns!

Super Skunk is back, and this time we’ve got plenty to go around! This sativa-leaning hybrid has been a big hit with patients in the past, so we decided to grow a larger batch. It is now available in both Chichester and Merrimack!

Developed by Top Dawg Seeds, this cultivar (a.k.a. “strain”) is a cross between Mass Super Skunk and Skunk #18. Our strain guide suggests that its characteristics may be “focusing,” “stimulating,” and “energizing.”

Despite the name, it actually smells more lemony than skunky due to the presence of a terpene called D-Limonene. Our growers have reported that it also has a funky aroma, almost like cheese. And our Merrimack dispensary staff observed that it smells “sour and earthy” and appears to be covered in trichomes (tiny crystals that are loaded with cannabinoids).

Some patients report that Super Skunk is helpful for relieving pain, reducing stress, and stimulating appetite. You can find it on our menu in the gold flower tier.

In other news, we are pleased to announce that Blue Dream and Cherry Gar-See-Ya flower are back in stock! Both have been added to the silver tier. Pre-rolls are also available in limited supply. Visit our menu if you’d like to place an order!

This is a regular (not super) skunk. He lives in Manchester, enjoys rooting around in the grass, and doesn’t know anything at all about cannabis.

Independence Day Weekend Sale!

Join us for our Independence Day Weekend Sale Event on July 1 and 2! While supplies last, we will be offering sales on drink mixes, select pre-rolls, and select strains of flower. Here are the details:

Staff Spotlight: Alicia Bennett

Many Prime patients already know that Alicia Bennett is one of the most knowledgeable and helpful staff members you could ever hope to meet at any dispensary. She has been consulting with patients and helping them get the most out of their experience with therapeutic cannabis since she joined our team in 2019. In recognition of her efforts, Prime recently promoted Alicia to a new position: Education Supervisor!

Alicia’s own journey with therapeutic cannabis began when she was a college student battling sarcoma, a rare and very aggressive form of cancer. The New Boston native tried cannabis while undergoing chemotherapy and recovering from surgery, and she found it very helpful in treating her pain, nausea, and anxiety. As an amputee, she has continued to find cannabis beneficial in minimizing her phantom sensations. In 2017, her remarkable story was featured in Teen Vogue magazine.

As a result of her experiences, Alicia developed a passion for learning about cannabis and sharing her knowledge. In addition to her work with patients at Prime, she recently traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota, to speak at CancerCon 2022.

When Alicia isn’t at the dispensary speaking with patients or updating our educational handouts, you might find her gardening, playing in a swamp, or reading yet another article about therapeutic applications of cannabis.

If you have questions about therapeutic cannabis, Alicia would be a great person to ask! You can reach her by calling the Chichester dispensary at 603-212-1500. We also encourage you to check out the documents on our “patient education” page to learn more about the science behind therapeutic cannabis.

Thanks for sharing your story, Alicia!
