Published: Aug 06, 2018 by John Izzo

On Friday, August 3, 2018, the Ohio Department of Commerce announced seven companies that received provisional medical marijuana processor license: Ohio Grown Therapies, LLC (Johnstown, Licking County); Fire Rock Processing Ltd. (Columbus, Franklin County); Ohio Green Grow LLC (Toledo, Lucas County); Greenleaf Therapeutics, LLC (Middlefield, Geauga County or Willoughby, Lake County); Grow Ohio Pharmaceuticals, LLC (Newtown Township, Muskingum County); Standard Farms Ohio LLC (Garfield Heights, Cuyahoga County); and Corsa Verde, LLC (Columbus, Franklin County).

Commerce received one hundred and four applications last year. Thirty-three licenses remain and have not yet been awarded. Commerce reports there are still six applicants who may be eligible for licenses in the first round. Tax and/or background checks are still pending for these applicants.

Rather than denying the other 91 applicants, Commerce decided to conduct a second round of review for the remaining applications. Commerce will ask these applicant for clarifying information before deciding to grant or deny them a provisional license.
