How We Finance Your Entire Vertically Integrated Real Estate Project
First, we get loan requests for marijuana properties
but also for fast growing hemp CBD real estate loans. It doesn't matter to us what sector - we provide you funding just the same and will use the terms cannabis, marijuana and hemp interchangeably here.
When we talk about a vertically integrated project we are talking about one that involves real estate for 3 operations:
1. A grow or cultivation operation 2. A manufacturing or processing operation and 3. A distribution or retail operation.
Funding for grow operations can be straight indoor grow facilities that include construction of new facilities or build outs of existing buildings. For cannabis construction funding,
we finance up to 70% of the construction costs with loan disbursements made upon construction milestones. Many construction projects also require sizable amounts of equipment
which we can also finance for you. This may include equipment inherent in the functioning of the property such as HVAC or lighting.
For outdoor grow operations
we can finance or refinance the purchase of the land along with building acquisitions such as greenhouses and lighting for those. For established businesses we can help you expand with working capital for seeds, clones, personnel, marketing and more.
, we can help you finance or refinance the building acquisitions and provide funding for the build out of the facility including the equipment. The main equipment is typically equipment that can extract the cannabinoids desired from the raw material and then distill to the desired level for your finished product. Additional equipment may include ventilation, security cameras, lab testing equipment and more.
For your retail or distribution facilities
, which is typically some kind of dispensary, the same process applies - funding for the acquisition and build out along with financing for any equipment and working capital you may need.
Sometimes one of our lending partners will finance your entire vertically integrated project. Other times we will work with multiple lenders to secure the real estate, equipment and working capital loans that you need.
