“Beyond Hello™ Cincinnati marks the opening of our first retail location in Ohio and Jushi’s fifth vertically integrated state, with the Buckeye State now joining Pennsylvania1, Virginia, Massachusetts and Nevada,” said Jushi Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and Founder Jim Cacioppo. “Our store in Cincy brings the full Jushi omnichannel retail experience to Ohio, delivering a safe, accessible, and efficient experience to patients that allows them to shop both in-store and online. We look forward to increasing the accessibility of medical cannabis in this growing medical market and further expanding our footprint in key areas across the Buckeye State.”
Home to more than 200,000 residents2 in Clermont County, the new dispensary location is a five-minute drive from EastGate Mall and the Cincinnati Nature Center, which attracts more than 200,000 visitors annually3. It is situated close to two major routes, Route 275 and Route 32, as well as several big-box stores along Route 74. In addition, Beyond Hello™ Cincinnati is surrounded by local museums, historic sites, parks, breweries, wineries, and golf courses, and located approximately 20 miles east of major tourist sites such as Paul Brown Stadium, Newport Aquarium and Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens.
Currently, four of Jushi’s in-house brands are available in the Ohio medical cannabis market, including: Sèchè, its flower line; Tasteology, a brand of premium, real fruit, cannabis-infused gummies; The Lab, a high-quality vaporization line; and its award-winning flower brand, The Bank.
