Ohio's Division of Cannabis Control is providing a glimpse into which marijuana dispensaries could be the first to sell recreational product. SANDUSKY, Ohio — Ohio's Division of Cannabis Control has approved the first provisional licenses to sell recreational marijuana. A total of 31 medical marijuana dispensaries received pre-approval for dual-use recreational sales, with The Forest Dispensary being the nearest in northwest Ohio.

Located in Forest Park, Parkway Dispensary is set to launch in Doc Ryan's old building and will be minority-owned. Blue Forest Farms Dispensary LLC is also now operating out of a retail unit in a 7-story condominium complex. The passage of Issue 2 in Ohio has paved the way for recreational marijuana sales, but there are still steps to be taken before this becomes a reality for residents.

Here's a list of the dispensaries in the Greater Cincinnati region that have already been given provisional licenses for dual-use sales. Standard Wellness is expanding its medical cannabis footprint in Ohio and is looking towards the potential for recreational sales. However, many residents in Staten Island have spoken out against the closure of local businesses like S&T Bagel and Forest Card & Gifts.

The Forest Dispensary is at the forefront of the changing landscape of marijuana sales in Ohio. With the approval of provisional licenses, it is paving the way for recreational sales in the state. The Dispensary is set to offer a wide range of product to cater to both medical and recreational users, with a focus on quality and safety.

In a move towards inclusivity, Parkway Dispensary in Forest Park is proud to be minority-owned. This highlights the importance of diversity in the cannabis industry and provides opportunities for underrepresented communities. Blue Forest Farms Dispensary LLC is also contributing to the local economy by operating out of a retail unit in a condominium complex.

The approval of dual-use licenses marks a significant step towards recreational marijuana sales in Ohio. This shift in legislation opens up new opportunities for businesses and consumers alike. The Forest Dispensary is poised to become a key player in this emerging market, catering to the growing demand for cannabis product.

As the industry continues to evolve, dispensaries like The Forest Dispensary play a crucial role in ensuring safe and legal access to marijuana. With the support of Ohio's Division of Cannabis Control, these establishments are able to provide quality product to a wider range of customers.
