How to Get a Cannabis Business Loan

Investors are the most common way to access funding in the cannabis industry. But that doesn’t mean it’s the right move for every business.

A business loan might be the perfect choice for your cannabis company. Small business loans give you more control. Investors can exercise more authority in daily operations to ensure a return on their investment.

Why is it important to find a cannabis-friendly lender?

The federal government considers cannabis illegal, even state-legal cannabis operations. This means cannabis businesses like yours don’t have access to traditional lenders.

Applying for a cannabis business license alone can cost $10,000 or more. The hefty ongoing cost of operations is just another expense. Cannabis-specific small business loans remove the federal red tape around lending and grant you legal, liquid funds.

What to look for in a cannabis business lending partner:

Vetting your product or service provider’s cannabis expertise is crucial. The existing complex financial regulations require specialized cannabis knowledge. Make sure your lender has experience loaning to cannabis businesses before working together.

Here are some questions to ask:

  • What kind of loans or credit do you recommend for my business?
  • What are your interest rates like?
  • What is your payment schedule?
  • What are some challenges we might run into during this process?
  • Have you successfully loaned money to cannabis businesses in the past?
  • If my loan or business needs change, how can you support that?
  • What do you need from me to do your job well?
