First Look at Buckeye Relief's Marijuana Cultivation Farm

WKYC got an up-close look at Buckeye Relief, Ohio's first large-scale marijuana cultivator, who hopes to grow between 8,000 and 10,000 plants for Ohio's growing medical marijuana patient community.

Buckeye Relief is a 60,000 square foot facility that will produce pharmaceutical grade medical marijuana for Ohio's marijuana dispensaries. The facility features state-of-the-art technology. According to WKYC, there's a tech room where "water is filtered, fertilized and mixed with Co2, before being pumped in for the plants. The grow room even has a special cooling system and LED bulbs that are on a timer."

"It took an amazing effort from our team at Buckeye Relief, the City of Eastlake, our construction partner, and local unions to build a facility of this quality and capability in less than 8 months," said Andy Rayburn, Buckeye Relief Co-Founder and CEO, in a statement. "Our BR team is already focused on planting and shifting our efforts to producing medicine of the highest quality for Ohio’s patients."

Naturally, the quicker we see growing facilities planting their seeds, and producing quality medical marijuana for all Ohio marijuana card patients, the sooner we will see product in Ohio medical marijuana dispensaries.

Though smoking marijuana has been strictly prohibited by Ohio medical marijuana law, cannabis cultivators will still be growing cannabis flowers for sale in state-licensed dispensaries, in addition to marijuana-infused waxes, oils, tinctures, edibles and topical creams, many of which will be produced by marijuana processors. Those facilities are just getting underway now.
