Ohio medical marijuana processor

Ohio medical marijuana processor applicants

by Robin Ann Morris on

Most of the winners of provisional licenses to grow marijuana have also applied to become processors under Ohio’s medical marijuana program along with several familiar names from Greater Cincinnati.

Eleven of the 12 winners of the large-scale cultivation licenses – and possibly all 12 pending a slight name difference – applied to become processors, according to a list released Wednesday by the Ohio Department of Commerce. Nine of the 12 awarded Level II licenses for smaller grow operations also applied as processors.

The list of 104 applicants for the 40 available processor licenses did not include site addresses, but many cultivators indicated they would want to do processing on the same site.

Four Greater Cincinnati cultivation applicants also applied for the processing licenses.

Among the most notable local bids making another run is Cincinnati-based CannAscend LLC led by Jimmy Gould and Columbus’ Ian James. They’re currently fighting the Ohio Commerce Department after being turned down for a cultivator license.

Other firms with local ties that have applied after submitting bids for cultivation licenses are:

  • Ancient Roots LLC, which was approved for a small cultivation site in Wilmington
  • Columbia Care OH LLC, which was approved for a large cultivation site in Mount Orab
  • Pallia Tech Ohio LLC, which applied for processing sites in Woodlawn and Amelia after it was denied its bid for grow sites in Woodlawn and London.

As with the other categories, there’s a heady mix of locals and well-established industry titans from California and Colorado.
