OTTAWA, April 10, 2019 /CNW/ - 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 provided an update on Sonoma County permit approvals received by the Company's pending acquiree, California-based cannabis cultivator Cub City LLC ("Cub City") and wholly-owned subsidiary, FloraCal Farms ("FloraCal").
- Cub City received a Minor Use Permit ("MUP") from the County of Sonoma for cultivation, processing, non-volatile manufacturing, and distribution at its Santa Rosa facility. The MUP was approved by a unanimous vote of the Sonoma County Board of Zoning Adjustments (the "Board"), following a public hearing on March 28, 2019. The appeal period for the Board's decision ended on April 8, 2019 without any appeal being filed.
- As previously announced, the Company has signed a binding term sheet for the acquisition of the business of Cub City (the "Acquisition"). The closing of the Acquisition is expected to be in Q2 2019.
- FloraCal received a Minor Use Permit from the County of Sonoma to undertake construction of the third and final phase of build-out and upgrades at its Santa Rosa facility. The finished facility will have an annual production capacity of approximately 1,100 kg of premium flower per year, as well as processing and distribution entitlements.
Cub City and FloraCal have already received their provisional state cultivation licenses – the first two such licenses to be issued in Sonoma County.
Cub City's approval to operate, and FloraCal's permit to commence the final build out of its facilities in Sonoma Countyare key milestones in augmenting our growing California footprint,

On behalf of our entire team, we thank Sonoma County and the Board of Zoning Adjustments for seeing the potential in our business and the positive impact it will have on economic development, as well as the community.
