Here we go Ohio, we’re finally off to the races! The four Ohio Medical Marijuana Dispensaries opening today at 9am with product are:
- The Botanist – 3840 Greentree Ave. in Canton
- The Forest Sandusky – 1651 Tiffin Ave. in Sandusky
- CY+ – 180 Main St. in Wintersville
- Ohio Valley Natural Relief LLC – 840 Canton Rd, also in Wintersville
What will be available? Only flower a.k.a. bud will be available right now since there are no processors that have received their operational license. Once they do you can also expect to see edibles, oils, lotions & other interesting things over these next few months.
How much am I able to buy? CY+ plans to limit sales to 2 ounces per patient the first week, while The Forest in Sandusky is limiting patients to 1 ounce per week. Product will continue to be replenished at Ohio Medical Marijuana Dispensaries continuously over the next few weeks to keep up with demand. Right now there is expected to be around 30 different strains from 3 cultivators.
How much is it going to cost? Prices are expected to be $40-$60 per “Daily Unit”, plus tax. What is a Daily Unit you ask? It is 2.8 grams and exactly 1/10th of an ounce, which weighs in at 28 grams. Some dispensaries such as The Forest will have a 20% discount for veterans.
What should you bring? First you must have already received a recommendation from an approved Ohio Medical Marijuana Doctor for at least 1 of the 21 qualifying conditions. You will need your state or government issued ID along with your Ohio Medical Marijuana registry E-card, it has a barcode that Ohio Dispensaries will need to scan. You can have it digitally on your phone or print up a physical copy. At this time Ohio Medical Marijuana Dispensaries are only accepting cash and it is probably a good idea to stop at an ATM on the way.
