Seven Mile medical pot dispensary sets opening date for this week

Bloom Medicinals, the medical marijuana dispensary in Seven Mile, will officially open for business Thursday, an official from the business said.

Andrew Wagner, head of operations at Bloom, told the Journal-News the shop at 403 S. Main St. will open at noon. The pot emporium will be open on Monday and Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 7 p.m.

The state approved provisional licenses for 56 dispensaries last summer, including two in Butler County. The other is Strawberry Fields in Monroe.

In June 2016, former Gov. John Kasich signed a bill into law that authorizes use by patients with 21 conditions, including cancer or chronic pain, in the form of edibles, oils, patches and vaporizing. Patients and their caregivers will be allowed to possess up to a 90 day supply. Smoking or home growing it is barred.

Wagner said previously the store will open with seven to 10 employees but has plans to expand the staff to a dozen to 15 within six months to a year.

Bloom is a family-owned company with more than five years of experience in the cannabis business.

“We take the time to work with each individual patient to help identify products that will work best specifically for them,” Wagner said. “Our goal is to bring safe access to medical cannabis and be a positive addition to nearby communities. Bloom Medicinals strives to be a socially responsible organization with a goal of improving quality of life and well being for our patients and those around us.”
