Medical marijuana facility in Eastlake harvests first batch of plants

EASTLAKE, Ohio — It was a big day for a medical marijuana grow facility in Eastlake as Buckeye Relief employees were carefully harvesting their first batch of cannabis plants.

“We have over 1,300 plants to do this weekend,” said Bryan Procuk, post cultivation director at Buckeye Relief.

The harvest process began Thursday after the adult cannabis plants had been growing since July of this year under the watchful eye of a team of cultivators.

“We bring down all the plants that have been flowering for the past nine weeks and we process them and begin getting the medicine ready for the patients,” said Procuk.
