How I earn 12%-15% annually, distributed monthly with private cannabis mortgage REITs

I currently earn $2,700+/mo on $300,000 (which is an ~11% annual return), distributed monthly, by investing in a private fund that provides mortgages to cannabis grow facilities. 

Talking about money, especially when intertwined with taboo topics such as Cannabis, are usually not spoken about openly. But if you’re an investor looking to grow your net worth and cashflow, I think it’s important to understand all the investment options you have on the table. 

In this episode of the Grow Your Cashflow Podcast, I interviewed Rob Sechrist, President of Pelorus Equity Group, the private cannabis mortgage REIT I’ve personally invested $300,000 into, to share… 

  • The mechanics of generating steady monthly income by investing in cannabis, just like I am

  • The 3 things investors believe are risks, but actually are non-issues

  • Why cannabis investments are a safe haven from interest rate volatility in today’s financial climate

  • And so much more!
