We are pleased to announce that Prime ATC will offer several therapeutic cannabis classes and a support group in September.
First, we will hold our New Patient OrientationClass in person at 10am on Thursday, September 8, at our Merrimack location in Unit C. A second New Patient Orientation Class will be held via Zoom only at 5pm on Wednesday, September 14. If you’re new to therapeutic cannabis, this class is designed to help you get a better understanding of the basics.
Next, we will offer our Patient Support Group via Zoom only at 5pm on Tuesday, September 20. This peer-facilitated support group is open to any therapeutic cannabis patient in NH. The discussion will be focused around the challenges of being a therapeutic cannabis patient, public stigma about cannabis, and communicating with medical providers about therapeutic cannabis.
Last, but not least, our Terpene Class will be held in person at 4pm on Thursday, September 29, at our Merrimack location in Unit C. This class is open to any patient or caregiver who is interested in learning more about the aromatic compounds that give cannabis its aroma.
To register for any of these classes, you can either call us at either dispensary or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In person classes will be limited to 10 registrants, and Zoom classes will be unlimited.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds in cannabis that contribute to its aroma and effects. They are found in all plants, and some of the terpenes found in cannabis are also found in fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices. Terpenes in cannabis vary depending on the strain, and the combination of terpenes contributes to the different smells and effects associated with each strain.
If you’d like to learn more about these interesting aromatic compounds, come join us next week at our Terpene Table! Our Education Supervisor, Alicia Bennett, will have a table set up on Monday, April 18 in Merrimack and Tuesday, April 19 in Chichester. This is a great educational opportunity, and it will also be fun!
After learning more about terpenes, you’ll have a chance to win prizes by playing “Guess the Terpene.” We will have unmarked samples so you can test your nose by trying to guess which terpene it is. If you successfully identify the correct terpene, you can spin a wheel to win a prize!
We have added a terpene quick guide on the back of the strain guide, and we expect this will be helpful for patients. We will also have new educational handouts available at the Terpene Table with more information about individual terpenes. Alicia will be there throughout the day to talk about terpenes and to answer questions about cannabis and our products.
We hope to see you at our Terpene Table in Merrimack on April 18 or in Chichester on April 19!
