110 Ohio Dispensaries Now Have Provisional Licenses for Adult-Use Sales

188 provisional licenses for dual-use operations have been approved as of July 5

The Ohio Division of Cannabis Control (DCC) is about finished issuing provisional licenses to the 240-plus medical cannabis applicants who intend to participate in the state’s adult-use market.

The DCC opened the application process June 7 for existing cultivators, retailers, processors and testing laboratories to apply for dual-use licensure to participate in both the medical and adult-use cannabis programs. The state’s voter-approved legalization initiative, which garnered 57.2% support in the November 2023 election, provided this first-mover advantage into Ohio’s forthcoming adult-use marketplace.

The division had approved 188 provisional licenses for dual-use operations as of July 5, according to the DCC’s licensing database. These licenses serve as placeholders for companies to receive their certificates of operation and are broken down as follows:

  • 6 testing laboratories (of 8 operational licensees in the medical market)
  • 22 Level I cultivators (of 22 in the medical market)
  • 11 Level II cultivators (of 14 in the medical market)
  • 39 processors (of 45 in the medical market)
  • 110 dispensaries (of 126 in the medical market)
