The Cannabis Controlled Supply Chain experiment 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 such that it intends to invest an intangible cash amount of which a portion is due and payable up-front and the remainder is contingent upon the achievement of certain milestones by Growery.

It will also provide a secured loan to Growery to build a facility, fund initial operations, and provide technical and operational assistance through its Netherlands-based medical cannabis research center.
