Ottawa, Canada – November 27, 2018 – CannaRoyalty Corp. d/b/a Origin House (CSE: OH) (OTCQX: ORHOF) (“Origin House” or the “Company”), a leading North American cannabis products and brands company, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership (the “Agreement”) with boutique cannabis producer, Heritage Holding of California, Inc. d/b/a Henry’s Original (“Henry’s” or “Henry’s Original”).
As part of a broader brand acceleration and community support initiative, Origin House, through its distribution subsidiary River Distributing Co., LLC (“RVR”), will purchase premium cannabis flower from local Mendocino County. Henry’s has agreed to repurchase all such cannabis flower from RVR, which will then be processed and packaged into jars and pre-rolls under the Henry’s Original brand.
Commenting on the partnership, Afzal Hasan, President and General Counsel of Origin House said, “Our vision as Origin House is to become the home of premium cannabis brands and I’m excited to be able to leverage this unique opportunity with Henry’s Original as one of the first partnerships following our recent rebrand. This initiative allows us to financially support local Mendocino farmers while helping the growth of a unique flower brand. Partnering with local entrepreneurs such as Jamie allows us to be a responsible corporate citizen promoting growth of the California cannabis industry. This Agreement is one of a number of similar opportunities we’ve been exploring – we look forward to partnering with more passionate local California businesses to help bring their industry leading offerings to the world.”
Jamie Warm, CEO of Henry’s Original added, “We have been impressed with Origin House’s bespoke approach to supporting our business. Our cannabis comes from family-run farms in Mendocino County, renowned for terroir that produces the finest cultivation conditions. We’ve grown our business from scratch, handling everything in house. And while we will continue to do that, this partnership with Origin House has offered us opportunities to scale-up and work symbiotically with other businesses in the industry.”
Origin House, through its subsidiary, RVR, will purchase up to $2.5 million of bulk cannabis flower from Mendocino County cultivators selected by Henry’s. Henry’s will process and package the flower into jars and pre-rolls at its facility in Laytonville.
