Origin House Announces Full Integration with California Cannabis Track-and-Trace System and Provides Corporate Updates
Ottawa, Canada – October 15, 2019 – CannaRoyalty Corp. d/b/a Origin House (CSE: OH) (OTCQX: ORHOF) (“Origin House” or the “Company”), a North American cannabis products and brands company today announced that the Company has achieved full integration with the California Cannabis Track-and-Trace (“CCTT”) system at each of its six licensed facilities in the state.
The CCTT system, developed by software vendor, Metrc, uses RFID-enabled tags to track cannabis products through every stage of the supply chain, from seed to retail sale. Once deployed statewide, the program will give both regulators and licensees greatly improved visibility into the movement of cannabis goods in California, while making it harder for black-market goods to reach consumers.
Since receiving its first provisional state license from the California Department of Food and Agriculture in March, 2019, Origin House has worked closely with Metrc and state regulators to implement CCTT at its cultivation, manufacturing, and distribution facilities. Deployment of the system at the 17,000-square- West Sacramento distribution hub, operated by Origin House’s distribution arm, Continuum, marked the successful completion of these efforts.
“Our team has long supported CCTT-Metrc as a cornerstone of California’s regulatory and consumer-protection strategies,” said Lee Dorkin, Head of California Operations at Origin House. “We are proud to be among the first vertically-integrated operators to complete deployment of the system at such a large scale. Our success in doing so reaffirms Origin House’s commitment to being an industry leader in compliance and product quality.”
Cub City Receives Certificate of Occupancy for Sonoma County Cultivation Facility
The Company also announces that Cub City, LLC, a craft cannabis producer that was acquired by Origin House in May, 2019, has received a certificate of occupancy, following substantial improvements to its Sonoma County cultivation facility. The upgraded facility has an annual production capacity of up to 1,400 kg of ultra-premium flower, as well as local entitlements for non-volatile manufacturing, processing, and distribution.
Sale of Cotati Facility
Origin House announces that it has entered into an agreement for the sale of one of its planned distribution and manufacturing facilities (“Cotati”) in Sonoma County for cash consideration of US$1.7 million.
With the previously announced acquisition of Cub City, LLC, a licensed premium craft cannabis producer, the Company acquired distribution and manufacturing infrastructure in Sonoma County in closer proximity to its existing FloraCal facility. The purchase of this additional space in Sonoma County rendered the Cotati facility redundant to Origin House, and moreover to the combined California assets of Origin House and Cresco Labs Inc., upon completion of the pending transaction, after receipt of regulatory approvals.
Update on Agreement with Viola Brands
The Company announces that the initial term of its previously announced agreement with Viola Brands has ended and the parties have not renewed.
