Chicago Atlantic closes $20m facility with Nova Farms

by Andrea Zander

Chicago Atlantic has closed a $20 million facility in senior secured financing to Nova Farms, a fully integrated cannabis operator managing a Massachusetts cultivation farm, seven retail brands and five full-service dispensaries across Massachusetts, Maine and New Jersey.

Chicago Atlantic’s capital investment will support Nova Farms’ efforts to expand its footprint of dispensaries in key states, including New Jersey, a burgeoning market that has earned more than $1.3 billion since the beginning of adult-use cannabis sales in April 2022, and Connecticut, which legalized adult-use cannabis in January 2023 and saw $274 million in revenue its first year.

Nova Farms secured its first licenses in Massachusetts shortly after the state’s legalization of adult-use cannabis in 2016, and its new openings to date have shown a consistent track record of growth and profitability.

The next Nova Farms retail opening is planned for late 2024.
