Cannabis Private Equity Funds

Private equity investments in cannabis are typically larger than those made by venture capital funds and often private equity companies take a controlling or even 100% interest in the cannabis companies in which they invest. Private equity investments can be anywhere from several million to over a billion dollars, but are typically smaller in the cannabis space. Investments can be debt, equity, or hybrid.
Cannabis Hedge Funds
Cannabis hedge funds invest in companies publicly traded cannabis companies by purchasing stock, usually via an exchange. Currently, the vast majority of publicly traded plant-touching companies are located in Canada. However, cannabis hedge funds may also invest in cannabis companies providing ancillary products or services in the US or elsewhere.
Cannabis Real Estate Funds
Cannabis real estate funds invest in real property including industrial, agricultural, and retail property for lease or sale by owners of state-regulated legal cannabis businesses. Because cannabis regulations in the US are very fractured and provincial, savvy real estate investors that are knowledgeable on local cannabis regulations can earn impressive returns investing in real estate.
