Cresco Labs Ohio is in the final stages of construction in Yellow Springs. Cresco is building a 50,000-square-foot facility for the cultivation and processing of medical marijuana after receiving a grow license from the State of Ohio in 2017. If the facility passes state inspection, it could be producing marijuana as early as October of 2018. TY GREENLEES / STAFF

The plants will need about 90 days to grow before they can be harvested, Bachtell said. The greenhouse can be controlled to allow long hours of light or complete darkness.

After the plants are grown and harvested, Cresco will process them into cannabis oil products. The various products that Cresco will make include pharmaceutical-grade oral sprays, sublingual digestible tablets and transdermal patches.
If Cresco passes inspection and is issued a processing license, the first plants ready for harvest will be in October, Bachtell said.
