Cresco Labs Opens Yellow Springs Cultivation Facility and Shows Off Newly Planted Crop Of Medical Marijuana

Yellow Springs, OH, October 8, 2018 — Just three weeks after being awarded their certificate of operation from the State of Ohio, Cresco Labs showcased their crop of plants today during a ribbon cutting ceremony and tour of their large-scale medical marijuana cultivation facility. The company will grow nearly 30 unique strains of marijuana which will be sold at dispensaries across the state.

We’re happy to be fully operational here in Ohio and one step closer to providing relief to patients suffering from a variety of medical conditions. We look forward to bringing awareness about this program and to helping eliminate the age-old stigma associated with marijuana – we want it to just be called medicine.

At the Yellow Springs facility, visitors saw a climate-controlled vegetation room with vertical metal racks containing clones, transplanted cubes and potted marijuana plants. As clones are placed to cubes they are tagged with a unique barcode to track their lifecycle seed to sale.

Cresco Labs grow facility is a state-of-the-art hybrid greenhouse with an energy efficient design designed to maximize the cultivation power of the sun and reduce the carbon footprint that typically results from sole indoor agriculture. Based in Chicago, Cresco Labs operates in six states making them the largest operator in Ohio.

The company will offer a full suite of pharmaceutical-grade products in Ohio that provide patients with consistent, controlled dosage. Their brands (Cresco, Remedi, Reserve and Mindy’s Edibles, an infused edible line with James Beard Award-winning chef Mindy Segal) include flower, edibles, vape pens/cartridges and multiple forms of medication delivery including oral sprays, pills, and transdermal patches. Cresco plans for these products to be available at dispensaries across Ohio in early January to patients who have been physician-certified to have any of the 22 approved medical conditions.

“The state of Ohio has done a great job keeping things moving forward with the launch of this program,” Bachtell added. “It’s not only a new program but still a relatively new industry and they are being very thorough in making sure everything is done right, which will ultimately benefit the patients.”

Participating in the ribbon cutting were Yellow Springs Mayor Pam Conine, Village President Brian Housh and Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Karen Wintrow. Ohio State Representative Rick Perales and State Senator Bob Hackett also joined Cresco Labs CEO Charlie Bachtell and President Joe Caltabiano.
