LAS VEGAS and VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Body and Mind Inc. (CSE: BAMM) (OTCQB: BMMJ) (the “Company” or “BaM”), a multi-state operator focused on limited license markets, is pleased to report the closing of the acquisition of the remaining 70% interest in NMG Ohio LLC (“NMG Ohio”). The transaction included the transfer of a dispensary license for the Clubhouse Dispensary in Elyria, Ohio to our wholly owned subsidiary, NMG OH 1, LLC, which became effective on September 4, 2020. The transaction also included the final award of a production license which has now been transferred to our wholly owned subsidiary, NMG OH P1 LLC. As a result of the closing of this acquisition, the Company now indirectly owns 100% of NMG Ohio.
BaM’s real estate and development team were instrumental in developing the Ohio dispensary and production licenses as the State of Ohio opened for medical cannabis. The Ohio market has experienced significant growth since inception and the Ohio Ballot Board recently approved the language of a ballot initiative effort to legalize cannabis for Ohio adults aged 21 or older as well as possession and home grow language. The Clubhouse dispensary was one of the early dispensaries to open after Ohio commenced sales of medical cannabis and has recently transitioned to a Body and Mind branded dispensary. The new processing facility is located next to the Body and Mind dispensary and has been designed to produce popular Body and Mind concentrates using hydrocarbon extraction as well as edibles and oils.
Our team has years of experience with hydrocarbon extraction products in other markets and we look forward to bringing our award-winning concentrates to the growing Ohio market.
Michael Mills, CEO of Body and Mind
