OHIO: Cresco Labs, one of the largest vertically integrated multi-state cannabis operators in the United States, announced that it has been granted the first approval to operate a marijuana dispensary in the state of Ohio. The new facility located in the village of Wintersville, named CY+ (pronounced “see why plus”), will offer a wide selection of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis for physician-certified patients across Ohio.

The CY+ dispensary will offer a full selection of premium-quality medical marijuana for patients who have been physician-certified to have any one of 21 approved medical conditions. In addition to the dispensary in Wintersville, Cresco Labs has built an environmentally-advanced 50,000 square foot growing and cultivation facility in Yellow Springs, Ohio which will supply statewide dispensaries with Cresco’s full suite of branded products.

“At Cresco, we pride ourselves on understanding the individual needs of each and every one of our patients. Our Wintersville staff is trained by leading cannabis doctors and researchers across the country to ensure that our patients’ specific needs are consistently met. In Wintersville we will continue to advance our mission of normalizing and professionalizing the cannabis industry for consumers,” Bachtell added.

The Wintersville dispensary features private, one-on-one consultation areas where patients can feel comfortable discussing their conditions or symptoms and exploring the appropriate medical marijuana products. Products offered will range from edibles, vape pens and cartridges to oral sprays, pills, and transdermal patches. Video footage of the new dispensary can be downloaded and viewed here.
