Initial Debut in the Empire State Includes Select Vapes and Pre-Rolls, Flower to Arrive in 2024
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–International cannabis lifestyle brand Cookies announces its official entrance into New York’s legal cannabis market with the launch of select vape and infused pre-roll products crafted from its signature cultivars. Starting Nov. 8, both New Yorkers and tourists over the age of 21 can legally purchase authentic Cookies products at Union Square Travel Agency (USQTA) in Manhattan, Strain Stars in Long Beach, FlynnStoned in Syracuse and various legal cannabis dispensaries across the state.
Made possible through partnerships with New York-based distributor Highline Brands and trusted packaging and co-manufacturing partner Final Bell, Cookies’ anticipated entrance into the New York market represents a long-awaited milestone for the award-winning company.
“Launching Cookies products in New York is a dream come true for me. I love this city and we have been working hard to get products to the Big Apple,” said Berner, Co-Founder and CEO of Cookies. “Now that the local regulators have allowed us to do so, we have been working nonstop to bring our authentic products to the state, and to finally be able to do so through our partnership with Final Bell, is exciting. I can’t wait to have Cookies products in the hands of the NY cannabis connoisseurs and spoil the lungs of customers.”
Introducing Cookies Vapes to New York
Adults in New York can enjoy two different vape offerings from Cookies: 1G Dual Chamber all-in-one vape and 1G Cannabis Terps vape cartridge. Both products include a blend of live terpenes and boast proprietary gravity-fed tech for more flavorful hits and no wasted oil.
“At USQTA, we pride ourselves on having the broadest and most innovative range of cannabis products available in New York,” said Dave Vautrin, Operating Partner at Union Square Travel Agency. “The Cookies Dual Chamber switch hitter vape featuring two strains, two tanks and two atomizers creates a truly unique experience and offering for NYC consumers, which USQTA is excited to debut this week.”
The innovative dual-chamber all-in-one vaporizer—available in either Cereal Milk / Cereal a la Mode or Berniehana Butter / Tequila Sunrise—holds two separate flavors in one device, allowing adult cannabis users to switch between strains at the push of a button. The Cannabis Terps vape cartridge, on the other hand, offers single strain exclusives, including Berniehana Butter, Cereal Milk, Gary Payton, Tequila Sunrise, and Triple Scoop.
“Cookies is recognized globally as one of the top cannabis lifestyle brands, with a deep presence and brand recognition in NYC. I am confident that the 1-gram vape offering will be embraced by both Cookies’ loyal consumer base as well as USQTA consumers seeking an intense flavor experience,” said Vautrin.
Fan-Favorite: Tripled-Infused Pre-Rolls with Diamonds
Available later this year in both a single 1G format and a five-pack of half gram joints, Cookies’ sought-after Triple-Infused Pre-Rolls with Diamonds feature some of the brand’s most iconic cultivars, including Berniehana Butter, Cereal Milk, Gary Payton, and Triple Scoop.
The pre-rolls are infused with diamonds, cannabis extract and coated in kief. In addition, each pre-roll comes with a reusable ceramic tip for consistent airflow and a superior burn.
“Starting Cookies in the Bay and finally being able to have our cannabis products drop across the country, in the heart and soul of the U.S., is truly amazing,” said Berner.
Adults interested in Cookies SF apparel, accessories or a variety of non-psychoactive CBD products crafted directly from Cookies’ genetics portfolio can visit the streetwear brand’s flagship store located at 958 6th Ave in Herald Square.
