Ottawa, Canada – February 4, 2019 – 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 that the Company has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) to provide strategic financing of US$704,000 to Humboldt’s Finest, an alliance of heritage cannabis farms representing Humboldt County. Humboldt’s Finest produces sun-grown cannabis flower on their farms in Humboldt County, California, which is processed into products including jarred flower, pre-roll flower joints, live resin dabs/jars and/or live resin cartridges.

The funds have been advanced towards the forward purchase of Humboldt’s Finest cannabis and cannabis products at a discount to the wholesale price. In conjunction with the Agreement, Origin House’s wholly-owned distribution subsidiary, RVR Distribution (“RVR”) has renewed and extended its exclusive distribution rights to Humboldt’s Finest products. This Agreement, in addition to the previously announced partnership with Mendocino-based Henry’s Original, reinforces Origin House’s presence as an active operator with a strong foothold in the Emerald Triangle, the epicenter of California’s cannabis cultivation.

“We are proud to announce Humboldt’s Finest as a participant in our innovative brand acceleration program, following recently announced partnerships with Henry’s Original and Utopia Cannabis,” said Afzal Hasan, President and General Counsel of Origin House. “We believe that the low-impact, organic practices of cultivators such as Humboldt’s Finest are the gold standard for high quality, sustainable, heritage cultivation. Humboldt County has come a long way socially, economically and environmentally, and the intellectual property rooted within the practices of this community is at the core of the brands that we are partnering with. We’re excited to support operators in Humboldt County that are seeking to make the area a global nexus for cannabis cultivation, as these relationships have the potential to translate into strong returns for both the local communities and our stakeholders.”
