LEBANON, Ohio — The Cincinnati area will officially have a medical marijuana dispensary when About Wellness opens its doors at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

The dispensary, the first of seven to open in Greater Cincinnati, is located in a strip mall at 1525 Genntown Drive.

Manager Mac Amin said he knows not everyone in the area will welcome or understand the dispensary, but he said he believes that there are people in the community who can benefit from what medical marijuana offers.

No one is allowed inside the building without a card from a doctor certified to recommend medical marijuana, he added. Patrons have to hold their medical marijuana cards up to the glass door before a worker can buzz them in.

When they step inside, they’ll be able to fill orders for products such as gummies, oils and tinctures. Ohio dispensaries are not allowed to sell smokable marijuana. Amin said all of the products will be cultivated and processed in Ohio.
