“Our team is excited and extremely humbled to be able to own one of the few licenses in Florida.” said Berner, Founder and CEO of Cookies. “This is a major milestone for the expansion of COOKIES, and we look forward to the challenge of growing some of the best cannabis in the world, in one of the toughest climates. We are building out a massive cultivation and breeding facility to feed our stores all throughout the state and keep the menu exciting. I can’t wait to embrace the culture and vibe in Miami and hope to secure a location on South Beach, that would be legendary.”
COOKIES’ long-standing reputation as a respected provider of innovative, high-quality cannabis products means it is well-positioned to provide excellent medicine for patients that make up Florida’s rapidly growing medical use market. The company is committed to rigorous R&D and safety protocols to ensure it is producing the finest cannabis products possible.
COOKIES’ proprietary strains of cannabis have been heralded internationally for their unparalleled genetics and consistent effects. Since launching in 2012 in California, the COOKIES family of brands has established a presence in medical and recreational markets across the U.S. and internationally, including 18 retail locations in the U.S. and a medical shop in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Florida is a medical-use-only market that requires patients to obtain a recommendation for medical cannabis use from a qualified physician and apply for a state issued ID card. Qualifying conditions to obtain a medical use card include cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, epilepsy, PTSD, ALS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and “other comparable debilitating medical conditions” like severe/chronic pain and anxiety. Medical cannabis was legalized in the state in 2014, and the program was significantly expanded by the passage of Amendment 2 in November of 2016.
About Cookies weed
At 18, Berner, known today as a prolific Bay Area rapper, entrepreneur and Cookies founder, served as the general manager of “Hemp Center,” a medical cannabis dispensary in San Francisco. There, he was inspired by the city’s progressive and compassionate view that cannabis could have a profound and positive impact on the lives of chronically or terminally ill patients. Later, in 2012, Berner went on to found Cookies along with his partner Jai, a Bay Area cultivator and breeder. Their intention was to create the world’s highest-quality, most innovative cannabis strains. After achieving success in its home state of California, Cookies quickly built a grassroots following while remaining loyal to its brand promise: Authenticity and innovative genetics. cookies weed fam

Cookies, also known more commonly as “Girl Scout Cookies,” is an indica dominant hybrid (60% indica/40% sativa) strain created through a three-way cross of the potent OG Kush X Durban Poison X Cherry Kush strains. This tasty bud has a cult following because of its cookie-like flavors and super sweet hybrid effects. Cookies has a taste of earthy kush with accents of sweet cherries and nutty lemon. The aroma is very similar, with an earthy nuttiness accented by a slight pungency and smooth sweet vanilla and spices.
This bud has oversized spade-shaped dark olive green nugs with bright fiery orange hairs, amber colored crystal trichomes, and visible droplets of sticky sweet resin. The Cookies high is just as sweet as the flavor, with well-balanced effects that would please the pickiest of connoisseurs. It starts with a euphoric cerebral high that instantly boosts your mood and replaces negative thoughts with an introspective energy. This is accompanied by a long-lasting body high that melts you into wherever you are sitting and infuses you with an unquenchable feeling of hunger. These effects and its 24% average THC level make Cookies perfect for treating conditions such as chronic stress or anxiety, appetite loss, depression, nausea, and chronic pain.
