Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp (CSE:CANN) (OTCMKTS:HERTF) says it is to advance the business with a C$6.7 million loan from Trichome Financial Corp.
Trichome already advanced the cannabis group C$4.875 million on January 30.
It will provide a further C$1.825 million when the firm receives a Health Canada sales licence or Heritage achieving consolidated revenues of C$7.5 million - whichever comes sooner.

"Continuing on our recent positive momentum and in advance of receiving our anticipated sales license, Heritage is very pleased to be strengthening our already conservative balance sheet," Clint Sharples, CEO of Heritage, told investors in a statement.
"This allows us the leverage to potentially take advantage of the many opportunities we're expecting ahead of us.
"Trichome has shown confidence in our strategy, signaling the strength of Heritage's business and expected continued success in the cannabis industry."
Proceeds will be used to fund capital expenditures, and other income-generating assets, said Heritage, which has two Health Canada-approved licensed producers in its subsidiaries Voyage Cannabis Corp. and CannaCure Corp.
Payable in full in 24 months
The loan is non-amortizing and payable in full 24 months following closing.
Heritage may request an increase in credit under the agreement up to C$2.3 million.
The firm will pay an original issue discount of 4.5%, interest at a rate of 9.5% a year, paid monthly, and maintain certain working capital ratios.
A one-time set-up fee equal to C$167,500 is due to Trichome on the closing date, it added.
Shares in Toronto slipped 1.85% to stand at C$0.26 each.
