One of United States’ largest vertically integrated multistate cannabis operator Cresco Labs has reportedly attained approval to run a marijuana dispensary in Ohio. According to sources familiar with the development, the new facility, named CY+, situated in the village of Wintersville, will offer physician-certified patients of Ohio access to a wide range of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis. As per trusted sources, the CY+ dispensary will provide a full range of high-quality medical cannabis to patients who’ve been certified by a physician to have any one of the 21 approved medical conditions. Besides the dispensary in Wintersville, the company has developed an environmentally advanced 50,000 square foot of growing and cultivation facility located in Yellow Springs, Ohio which will be the statewide supplier of Cresco’s full set of branded products. Charles Bachtell, CEO of Cresco Labs, said in a statement that being the first cannabis operator to be approved is a major milestone in the transformation of Ohio’s cannabis program. This is also a leap forward for Cresco along its path of unmatched speed to market, proven execution in the consumer market, and powerful influence in industry development, Bachtell added.
He further mentioned that Cresco prides itself on understanding the distinct needs of each one of its clients. Moreover, the Wintersville staff is trained by U.S.’s leading cannabis researchers and doctors to ensure the patient’s specific needs are constantly met. Cresco will continue to pursue its mission to normalize and professionalize the cannabis industry for patients, Bachtell added. According to sources familiar with the matter, the Wintersville dispensary is equipped with private consultation areas where patients can openly discuss their conditions or explore the products. Reportedly, Cresco’s extensive range of products include edibles, cartridges, vape pens, oral sprays, transdermal patches, pills, and more products. For the record, Cresco Labs is a Chicago-based cannabis company with experienced management, proven growth strategy and access to capital. Being a renowned cannabis retailer with active operation in seven states, the company is committed to accessing highly regulated markets with massive demand potential and high entry barriers.
