Miami and New Jersey dispensaries drew long lines from the East Coast in hopes of getting their first legal cookie.
The appearance of Monster Cookies on the East Coast for the first time in August demonstrated the brand’s unparalleled impact on the legal market.
Cookies are one of the biggest brands of weed (check out 3 million followers among San Francisco storebiscuit clothing lineand the owner Berner). Other multi-state operations have more stores and larger market shares. But the cookies’ debut draws lines that other dispensaries only see on the first day of legal sales in most states.
Over consecutive weekends in August, Cookies have brought new life to Florida and New Jersey by bringing their highly regarded products to market. Cannaseurs traveled thousands of miles and lined up before sunrise just to take part in the historic day, and take part in dynasties such as Jealousand Gary Payton and special editions such as Piece of Candy and Collins Ave.
Here’s what Leafly contributors, Michael Harrison and Moses Augustine, witnessed at the New Jersey debut at Lodi’s Cookie Corner, and at the grand opening of Cookies Miami earlier this month, including time with Berner, Yung LB and Luka Brazi And many more.
Greetings from Miami
“This was our first store in Florida, it was so true we did it here,” Berner said before cutting the ribbon at his brand’s Miami location. By 2 a.m., there were already about 100 people there, according to G’s bud’s blog. By the end of the day, the site had reportedly moved $500,000 of the product.
Just before the doors opened, Berner thanked everyone for enduring the “crazy wet heat,” and made one promise: “I can guarantee one thing, the team has done their job. The herbs here are absolutely incredible. So many great people in the building, so much great energy.” .
Bringing the best of Florida
The Miami Cookie Team was chosen by Berner. In May, Cookies invited local residents to submit their resume to meet Berner in person on June 4. At the grand opening on August 13, we spoke to an employee named my voice which was chosen.
Sukki explained that the brand draws such crazy lines because “people feel connected to cookies because they’ve found a way to cross that line from mere dispensary to culture.”
The store opening also attracted VIPs such as Young LB from Joke’s Up Wrontz, the legend of the smoking club Chest PopsCEO of GUMBO Luca Brazi. “I feel like I’m in L.A., but we’re at the Museum of Islamic Art,” said the rapper from Queens to Miami Nour, due to both the power of the stars and the power of stress. The founders of GasHouse in Atlanta Felix Morey And the Kingston She was also in the building.
