RESPONSIBLE INVESTING

ACROSS THE CANNABIS ECOSYSTEM
Private equity fund for the cannabis system since 2016.

ABOUT US

Merida Capital Holdings is a private equity fund targeting fundamental growth drivers underpinning the rapid development of the cannabis industry. Our investment emphasis focuses on cultivation technologies, products and services associated with the evolution of cannabis as an agricultural product, a natural plant-based medicine, a constituent in pharmaceutical formulations, and a recreational consumer product. 

 

We seek to invest in companies that have successfully transitioned from start-up to revenue-generating growth companies. We work to further accelerate proven operating models and supercharge the growth of their commercial pipeline. By identifying essential providers with strong management teams, we can anticipate where enterprise-level or large industrial providers in related non-cannabis fields will look to find growth in their core businesses through acquisition or investment. 

 

We are invested in over 60 companies and manage approximately $500 million across our funds, managed co-investments, and SPAC.

LATEST MERIDA NEWS

ESTABLISHED. EXPERIENCED. DIVERSIFIED.

While we have deep experience across the entire cannabis supply chain, our investment thesis is grounded primarily in four distinct verticals. We seek compelling long-term value as the industry matures by investing in well-managed, revenue generating companies offering cannabis-based businesses essential products or services. 

Merida: Cannabis data, analytics and regulation.
Merida: Cannabis cultivation, production, processing and formulation.
Merida: Cannabis testing and quality control.
Merida: Cannabis dispensary, retail, and brand.

Merida Capital Holdings is named for the Aqueduct of the Miracles (Acueducto de los Milagros), one of the most successful and innovative infrastructure projects in world history, located in Mérida, Spain. Over 2,000 years ago, during a time when irrigation technology was non-existent, the forward-looking Merida aqueduct system transported water nearly 15 miles over varied terrain to Emerita Augusta, a city built for retired elite Roman soldiers. The Aqueduct system contributed significantly to the emergence and establishment of foundational civilization elements that still exist in the region today. Large sections of the Merida aqueduct are still standing and are preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
