The Voice of Ohio's Cannabis Industry

What is NCIAO?

NCIAO is Ohio’s cannabis industry trade association. We seek to ensure a successful and responsible medical cannabis industry in Ohio by promoting sensible laws, regulations and public policies.

As the state affiliate of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), NCIAO works to advance the interests of all stakeholders in Ohio’s legal cannabis industry at the state and local levels. From licensed cultivators, manufacturers and dispensaries, to recommending physicians, patients, and ancillary businesses, NCIAO works to ensure a business environment that works for everyone.

NCIAO brings together the expertise of the NCIA and our staff’s extensive experience in state and local advocacy to advance the interests of our members. Through advocacy, education and community outreach we are creating the foundation on which Ohio’s legal cannabis industry will thrive.
