This profile is part of a paid investor education campaign.*
FinCanna Capital Corp (CSE:CALI) is a royalty finance company uniquely focused on investing in licensed medical cannabis businesses with a focus on California, the largest market in North America.

Key investment highlights include FinCanna’s large scale potential, a skilled and experienced management team and current and potential royalty investments.
FinCanna has an agreement in place with Cultivation Technologies Inc. (CTI) under which the company will provide capital towards the development of CTI’s fully entitled Coachella Campus. In exchange for funding the development of the Coachella Campus, FinCanna will receive a royalty payment of 10 percent of CTI’s Coachella Campus revenue.
The Coachella Campus is designed to be a 111,500 sq. ft. facility to be built on six acres of land in Coachella California. It is planned to host an indoor, ultra-premium cultivation centre for licensed medical cannabis with innovative and best-practice solutions including a multi-tier grow system, a controlled atmosphere and gas-tight rooms to maximize quality standards.

Cannabis Market in California
In North America alone, legal cannabis sales for 2016 were estimated at $6.7 billion and are projected to grow past $21.8 billion by 2020. California is the largest cannabis market in North America, boasting over 30 percent of legal cannabis product sales in the country.
When it comes to cannabis production, every state has its own set of laws and regulations. California was the first state to legalize medical cannabis in 1996, and over the years has become a knowledgeable & sophisticated medical market. The state has recently implemented regulations restricting the use of pesticides and mandating seed-to-sale tracking for all distributors. Many current operators will not be able to meet these stringent new standards and in turn this is expected to drive the market for ultra-premium licensed medical cannabis as planned by FinCanna’s flagship investment, Cultivation Technologies Inc.
Flagship Holding: Cultivation Technologies Inc (CTI)
FinCanna’s first royalty investment is with CTI, a company which intends to produce licensed, medical, ultra-premium indoor cannabis. CTI is led by a team of experts in precision agriculture, medical cannabis, law, engineering and technology. The two companies have a royalty agreement whereby FinCanna will earn a royalty of 10 percent of revenue from CTIs planned first cultivation and extraction facility in Coachella California.
As part of their agreement, FinCanna is providing funding to CTI, which will in part fund the development of the Coachella Campus in Southern California. This property is fully entitled and will run the full wholesale supply chain for licensed medical cannabis, including a large-scale indoor medical cannabis facility on six acres of land. The facility is designed to include a 81,600-square-foot cultivation space with a multi-tier grow system; a controlled atmosphere with protocols for chemical-pesticide-free cultivation; with gas-tight rooms to mitigate contamination risk, minimize crop loss. The Campus will also have on-site testing which will screen the product against industry standards and future-state compliance while also testing for pesticides.
Additionally, CTI began operations in October 2017, in its interim solvent extraction facility, one of the first permitted facilities of its type in the state. FinCanna is entitled to receive 50% of the profits of the interim facility.
