Ohio's First Medical Marijuana Sales

Almost 375 doctors have state approval to recommend medical marijuana, and more than 3500 patients have activated their registry cards.

CY+ and at least one other of the state's four dispensaries that opened on the first day put a cap on the amount of marijuana that patients could buy, a strategy that is increasingly common in new cannabis markets where demand can outpace supply.

All but The Botanist, 30133 Euclid Ave.in Wickliffe, will open Wednesday at 9 a.m.to patients. Once processers receive final approval and become operational in the state, CY+ and the other dispensaries can carry infused products and concentrates. Maryland saw a lucrative first year in operation, recently reporting $96.3 million in sales, and the cost of medical marijuana is likely to be higher in OH than in other states. "I was so honored to be chosen to go first".

"Now I can switch back to cannabis, stop the pills and get my quality of life back".

A steady flow of patients ensued, and just before noon, the dispensary had already served 75 patients, Erkes said.

No dispensaries have yet to be approved in Central Ohio.

"I didn't want to be late for my first day", she said.

Cultivators, processors, testing labs and dispensaries are at different stages of development, Rosenberger said.

Ohio's medical marijuana sales come about three months later than the state's anticipated September deadline for operation, but the state is expected to still see significant sales. "This could have helped him and a lot of people", Fuller said. Keep in mind that smoking cannabis remains prohibited, so if you pick up flower, be sure to have access to dry-herb vaporizer.
