VANCOUVER, Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Cannara Biotech Inc. ("Cannara Biotech" or the "Company") (CSE: LOVE) (OTCQB: LOVFF) (FRA: 8CB), an emerging vertically integrated cannabis company focused on indoor cultivation and sale of premium cannabis and cannabis-infused products, announced it has secured a first mortgage against its Farnham Facility in the value of $6 million with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. These funds will reduce the existing vendor take-back mortgage, thereby significantly reducing debt service costs.
The 625,000 square foot Farnham facility is situated forty-five minutes from Montreal on 27 acres, with 32-foot height ceilings. Recently, construction was completed on Phase One consisting of 170,000 square feet, of which 110,000 is dedicated to indoor cultivation with a capacity of 20,000 kg of premium dried cannabis once the cultivation license is granted. The remaining finished space is designed to accommodate various processing stages such as manufacturing, extraction and packaging. The building is currently valued at more than $40 million.
"Having constructed a state-of-the-art production and processing facility in an outstanding location, and recently advanced our commercial readiness by filing our Health Canada evidence package, this leading Canadian institution was more than comfortable to be our financial partner," said Zohar Krivorot, President and CEO of Cannara. "Once Cannara's cultivation and sales licenses are granted we'll look to augment this mortgage to further reduce our debt service costs."
