Today CannaRoyalty Corp. (CSE: CRZ) announced that it was changing its name to Origin House as an re-branding attempt to better align it with the company’s global strategy of maintaining global cannabis brands. The company’s ticker symbol will be changed from “CRZ” to “OH” on the Canadian Stock Exchange effective tomorrow, October 23rd.
The idea behind this new Origin House corporate identity lies behind the company’s strategy to become a preeminent global house for marijuana brands. Their new logo visually represents a “house” designed from the core components of the company in a stylized cannabis leaf. The company has also revealed an updated investor presentation regarding this identity, which can be seen on their new website.
“I couldn’t be more excited by what we’re building at Origin House. While many public cannabis companies are now attempting to build brands by putting logos on packages, we have already supported the growth of 50+ brand partners,” said CEO and Origin House Chairman Marc Lustig. “While most other companies have been staking flags across the globe in constrained markets with limited economics or brand building capability, we’ve been operating for years in the largest and most dynamic market in the world, staking flags in what we see as the most valuable real estate out there – consumer mindshare. And now, with the launch of Origin House, we are officially signaling our intention to leverage that mindshare globally.”
Origin House’s President and General Counsel Afzal Hasan also commented on the re-branding campaign. He went on to describe the strategy as three overlapping phases, the first being a process of creating the “cornerstone” for the Origin House brand. The second phase would see the company move from supporting external brands to internalizing their top performers. The third and final phase would see these brands tested in California and scaling them in other areas.
“We’ve officially begun this process in Canada, though the Company’s proposed acquisition of 180 Smoke,” he said. “…We intend to expand intelligently, in each regulated cannabis jurisdiction as it becomes viable for the sale of branded products, until we cover the globe.”
