The experience of the controlled cannabis supply chain is being used by the Dutch government to see how cannabis can be legally supplied to cafes and what the effects would be.
Aurora says the deal is structured in such a way that it intends to invest an intangible cash amount of which part is due and payable in advance and the remainder is dependent on the achievement of certain milestones by Growery.
It will also provide a secured loan to Growery to build a facility, finance initial operations, and provide technical and operational support through its Netherlands-based research center for medical cannabis.
Aurora CEO Miguel Martin said the Netherlands is expected to be the largest nationally regulated recreational market outside of Canada.
