Cresco Labs in Wintersville is first approved facility to operate marijuana dispensary


Cresco Labs in Wintersville is the first approved facility to operate a marijuana dispensary in the State of Ohio.

This means that as soon the product is tested for potency and purity from manufacturers around the state it will be delivered to their dispensary and then they will be able to open their doors for patients across the state who suffer from any of the 21 conditions.

Products offered will range from edibles, vape pens, and cartridges to oral sprays, pills, and trans-dermal patches.

Cresco Labs Spokesperson, Jason Erkes said, “There’s patients that suffer from things like Cancer, Epilepsy, or Fibromyalgia that have been seeking relief from their symptoms for a very long time. So having the first dispensary approved to open gives them a light at the end of the tunnel for their relief.” 

Again patients need to have one of the 21 qualifying conditions, be certified by their doctor, and have a state issued ID card before coming to the dispensary to buy product.
