New Hampshire Cannabis Laws

Medical & Recreational Marijuana

Medical marijuana businesses became legal in 2013. However, recreational (adult-use) marijuana businesses are currently illegal in the state.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is in charge of the state’s medical marijuana program and issuance of the associated licenses. The Department has established five dispensaries – aka Alternative Treatment Centers (ATCs) – and is not issuing additional medical marijuana business licenses.

CBD & Hemp

In order to cultivate hemp, you must obtain a hemp license from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), but that doesn’t mean you can do anything you want. The county and city where the business will be located may determine whether you can operate a hemp business within their borders or not.
At this time, the state has not given specific guidelines for processing or selling CBD products, so it will be up to the county and city to determine if they allow it or not.
In order to be fully legal, you’ll need to look up and verify the county and city requirements yourself or with our help via a Starter Package.
