That’s because marijuana remains illegal under federal law, which means banks and other traditional lenders are reluctant to finance businesses operating in this area.

This is where HEF Finance comes in. We specialize in debt financing and lending to businesses in the cannabis industry, using personal funds to help our clients achieve their goals. Our team of experienced loan professionals understands the unique challenges facing marijuana businesses, and we work closely with clients to provide custom financing solutions that meet their unique needs.
