Grow Ohio in Muskingum County was awarded the state’s first certificate of operation, which will allow the manufacturing on cannabis edibles, tinctures, topicals and other products for medical marijuana patients. This could prove a boon to sales for Ohio’s medical marijuana firms because only flower has been available for purchase since the state’s first dispensaries opened in mid-January. Kerry Francis, spokeswoman for the Department of Commerce, which oversees Ohio’s MMJ industry, said 37 other processors awarded provisional licenses are working on receiving their certificates of operation. The state plans to award licenses to two more processors, brining the total to 40. A Grow Ohio spokesman noted the company will operate a 60,000-square-foot facility outside Zanesville.
