Currently, cannabis is legal in 21 states for recreational usage and 39 states for medical use, with total revenues anticipated to exceed $38.8 billion through 2023. The next logical stage in the development of the cannabis market is federal financial regulation for complying enterprises.

Theoretically, most other sectors’ opportunities for credit cards, deposits and loans should be available to the marijuana business as well. However, there hasn’t been a legislative majority or the political desire to make tax and banking reform regarding cannabis business to happen, despite numerous efforts in Congress to do so.

Despite numerous attempts, the usual bills from opposing parties in the U.S. Congress and Senate — MORE, CAOA and SAFE — have not been successfully passed. Furthermore, the outcomes of the latest elections do not indicate any quick progress.

So what can a diligent, compliant cannabis startup do to obtain the funding it requires to launch, maintain and grow its enterprise? The apparent solution is to raise more equity, but the process is challenging and often reduces the shareholdings of the entrepreneurs and executives.

For a clearance sale as well as other finance, should you opt for the REITs, which are flooded with inexpensive cash from the open market? Many prospective borrowers think specialty lending is horrendously overpriced; however, this viewpoint is founded on an incorrect understanding of the situation.

Even if federal financial reform is implemented, marijuana financing is expensive for all individuals who borrow for the business because a new industry’s inherent risk is constantly factored into borrowing rates. The region’s procedural and tax systems also make the marijuana industry compositionally ineffective and highly complicated, leading to increased costs for everything, along with money, which may persist regardless of the government initiatives that are put into place because tax revenues are the driving force behind legalization.

Specialty finance firms typically borrow money on a differential basis from other parties. As a result, if the Reserve Bank raises the rate of interest, the expense to the creditor increases, and borrowing costs follow. That is how capitalism operates.

The assumption is that the anticipated rise in income or drop in expenses will more than outweigh the capital expenditures.

Since time equates to money, your rivals are either extending their growing sites, introducing a gummy plant to their producing factory, or creating an additional retail outlet while you are awaiting the offer on your subsequent funding.

Therefore, national financial reform may eventually lead to a lower cost of borrowing, but you shouldn’t count on it in the short-term. Entities such as REZYFi Inc. are working to bridge the financing gap for marijuana industry players. More actors of this nature could eventually help the industry thrive despite lacking access to mainstream banks.
