Two medical marijuana cultivators in Ohio are getting ready for their first harvest in November, according to the Ohio Department of Commerce.

FN Group Holdings in Ravenna and Agri-Med Ohio LLC. In Langsville were the first two marijuana cultivators to get certificates of operation.

The ODC said they do not own the cultivators and are going off the word of the businesses.

Once the crops are ready for harvest, a sample of the marijuana must be taken and tested in a lab to make sure they are following state laws.

If the crops are approved, patients can start registering for a medical marijuana card.

The ODC said there are five labs that have provisional licenses, which means they are not fully licensed to test the harvests yet.

Hocking Technical College is one of the five labs with a provisional license. According to the ODC, Hocking said they are on track for a final inspection by the end of the month.
