This has included major cities like Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati. More than 5,000 different patients have come into Ohio Cannabis in two years. There are about 200,000 people in Ohio registered with medical marijuana cards. 

    Co-owner Cindy Bradford said they have brochures in the lobby and employees often field questions about local attractions such as the Three Rivers Wine Trail and Roscoe Village. She said they are the highest ranked dispensary in the state by customers on a few websites based on their customer service, extensive menu of items and what else is available in the local area. She knows of several people who come specifically to the Coshocton facility because they can make an entire day out of the trip. 

    “The economic impact for our community has been exceptionally strong,” Bradford said. “To have that kind of impact within your community has been fabulous. Our growth has been phenomenal because of the patients.”
