The Latest Ohio Marijuana Opportunities

As of April 15, 2021, the Ohio Board of Pharmacy approved adding 73 more dispensaries licenses. This change comes because many medical cannabis patients had to travel far distances to get to their nearest dispensary. These licenses are to be added only in districts that exceed 1,200 patients per dispensary to bring that number below 1,200.

The Ohio Marijuana Market

Ohio currently is only legal for medical cannabis and does not allow adult use. As of March 2021, Ohio has done $338 million in total sales for medical cannabis. There currently are 57 Dispensary Licenses, 48 and Processor Licenses, 20 Level I Cultivator Licenses, 14 Level II Cultivator Licenses, and 7 Testing Labs. As of now, Ohio is only accepting applications for dispensaries. The Ohio marijuana market is highly competitive to enter but does pose great opportunities for success. However, success in such a competitive market cannot occur without several factors such as teamwork, market research, hard work, and cannabis industry experts to guide you.
