Founded by Berner and Jai in 2012, Cookies is a California-based boutique brand that’s internationally known for its high-quality flower and breeding projects. The breeding arm of Cookies, Cookies Fam Genetics, uses rare and unique genetics to develop new strains that regularly win competitions. To this day, Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) remains one of the most sought-after cannabis strains in the world. In addition to breeding and growing, Cookies is focused on preserving rare strains for future cultivation.
Berner started as a rapper and music producer and used his celebrity in music and entrepreneurial spirit to develop a multi-disciplinary brand that encompasses hemp-infused water, hemp clothing and apparel, and the monstrously popular Girl Scout Cookies cannabis strains, all of which skyrocketed Berner (and his brand Cookies) to the forefront of the cannabis industry.
With the legalization of cannabis and the explosion of the rap scene into the mainstream, Berner leveraged his popularity and networking skills to make strategic partnerships that allowed Cookies to become fully embraced by a large portion of the hip-hop industry. The Cookies family of brands includes Exotics, Lemonnade, Santa Cruz Shredder, Vibes, and Hemp2o.
