Klutch Cannabis Announces Award of Two New Ohio Dispensaries in Downtown Cleveland and Northfield Village

Akron, OH (June 18, 2024). Klutch Cannabis, one of the Midwest’s premier vertically integrated cannabis companies, announced the award of two new Provisional Dispensary Licenses from the Ohio Division of Cannabis Control, one each in Cuyahoga and Summit Counties. The award stems from the settlement of three dispensary application appeals originally filed against the Ohio Board of Pharmacy and marks the end of almost 6.5 years of litigation for the company.

“We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the leadership and staff of the Division of Cannabis Control, who have endeavored to amicably resolve these cases despite undertaking a mountain of work readying the state for its new Adult Use Program,” said Klutch Founder and CEO Adam Thomarios.  “We are thrilled to be able to finally put these cases behind us and are ready to get to work preparing these stores for our patients and future adult-use customers.”

The first store to receive a Provisional Dispensary License will be located at 300 East Prospect Avenue in Cleveland. Vacant for almost 20 years, the site is famous for being the former home of the legendary Record Rendezvous, where one-time owner Leo Mintz first coined the term “Rock and Roll” and planned what is now considered to be the first rock and roll concert with Cleveland disc jockey Alan Freed. Klutch, which is known for creating what the Global Cannabis Times has called some of the “coolest dispensaries in the world,” feels it’s time to return the location to its former glory.

“Our future flagship location has such a legendary story and unbelievable cultural significance to Cleveland. Without Record Rendezvous, there would be no Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. While the store will look and feel like a Klutch store, we are also making sure the finished product pays homage to its unique musical heritage,” said Thomarios.

The second store to receive a Provisional Dispensary License will be located at 10650 Northfield Road in Northfield Village across the street from the MGM Northfield Park Racino, where it is uniquely positioned to serve Northern Summit County and surrounding communities. Both sites are anticipated to be online within the coming months.

At the same time, Klutch also announced a planned rebranding of its dispensaries from “The Citizen by Klutch” to “Klutch Cannabis.” More details on the change will come this fall once Adult Use rules are finalized.
