Ottawa, Canada – January 15, 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 it has signed a binding term sheet (the “Agreement”) with Alternative Medical Enterprises, LLC (“AltMed”) to convert the Company’s 3.5% royalty interest on the sale of AltMed’s MÜV branded products (“MÜV”) into a combination of cash and 125 units of AltMed’s equity raising Origin House’s aggregate equity position in AltMed to 5.1%.

Marc Lustig, Chairman and CEO of Origin House said, “AltMed has established itself as a successful cannabis business in the key markets of Florida and Arizona.

We are confident in AltMed’s prospects and believe that our increased equity position will continue to lead to significant value creation for Origin House shareholders.”

Origin House currently owns a 4.8% equity interest in AltMed and a 3.5% gross product royalty on the sale of certain MÜV products. Pursuant to the Agreement, AltMed will issue 125 units to Origin House in addition to cash, as consideration for the Company’s royalty interest. Upon conversion of the royalty interest, Origin House will own an aggregate of 5.1% of AltMed. Based on the valuation ascribed to AltMed for the conversion of the royalty, this 5.1% equity position has an equity value of US$10.3 million. The anticipated closing date is on or before February 15, 2019.
