Ohio’s first licensed, state-legal medical cannabis grow has received the go-ahead from the Ohio Department of Commerce, according to a Cleveland.com report.
The certificate was awarded to Portage County-based FN Group Holdings LLC on Friday and authorizes the company — which will be doing business under the name Wellspring Fields — to grow up to a 3,000-foot canopy of cannabis plants.
The state began issuing cultivator licenses in December; none of the facilities, however, had yet to pass an inspection and therefore had not received final approval to put seeds in the ground. Wellspring Fields was the first to pass inspection (another company, Pure Ohio Wellness LLC, had a failed inspection in May) and can begin growing immediately. >>>
