The non-profit organization set to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Lebanon this spring received the green light Tuesday to begin growing cannabis at its Manchester location.
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced Tuesday it has granted Temescal Wellness a conditional registration certificate to begin producing medical marijuana.
The department voted last summer to allow the Manchester-based company to operate two of the state’s first four dispensaries, with one being located in Manchester and the second in Lebanon at the Hanover Road Professional Center off Route 120.
Temescal is now the second organization in the state to be given the go-ahead to begin growing, with Rochester-bases Sanctuary ATC being granted a conditional certificate earlier this month. Both organizations will need to complete one growth cycle before state officials can inspect the dispensaries and give final approval for their opening.
Temescal has said it hopes to open its Lebanon facility at some point this spring.
