Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opens in Southeastern Ohio


Ohio has issued more than 50 licenses for medical marijuana dispensaries across the state, including one in Jackson Ohio.

Buckeye Botanicals opened Wednesday and already owners say business is booming.

“Things have been going really well. Already, we have been really busy,” said co-owner Eric Ryant. 

Ryant says the reaction has been very positive. 

One customer told 13 News she drove from Columbus to Buckeye Botanicals. Brianna Bennett says she’ll use the medical marijuana to help with her PTSD. 

“I’m not into the medicine, it bothers my stomach. I dont like what it does to my body,” said Bennett. “I would much rather do it the natural way.” 

To actually access the product, you must have a doctors prescription as well as be registered through the state.

Buckeye Botanicals does have a physician on staff to help answer questions and to identify what strand might work best for you.
