The Maryland-based cultivator and dispensary is the latest partnership in the Cookies brand's continued expansion across North America
SAN FRANCISCO, June 12, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Cookies, the leading lifestyle and cannabis brand in North America, is pleased to announce its partnership with Culta, Maryland's leading lifestyle brand and producer of craft quality cannabis and extracts.
Culta will be the exclusive cultivation, manufacturing, and distribution partner for Cookies throughout Maryland, helping to further the nationwide expansion of the Cookies brand.
'The music scene and culture in Baltimore is legendary and Maryland deserves the best flower,' says Berner, founder and CEO of Cookies. 'Taking this step with Culta was a no-brainer after seeing that quality is their main focus. I'm looking forward to building with Culta and bringing an incredible menu to Maryland.''
Culta's vertically integrated dispensary on the Inner Harbor in Baltimore is one of the premiere medical dispensary locations in Maryland, selling its own range of consciously cultivated cannabis flower, concentrates and extracts. The Cookies team spent considerable time searching out the best and high-end quality partner to match its own brand and genetics. Cookies and Culta are currently developing Cookies strains and extracts in Maryland with products scheduled to be widely available to patients this Fall.
"We're humbled that Cookies recognized the quality we're putting out and wanted to partner ," says Mackie Barch, President at Culta. "Berner and Cookies have created a movement that's all about quality and treating people right, that's what we're all about. We couldn't be more excited about representing the Cookies family here in Maryland and showing them how Maryland does it."
Cookies was founded in 2012 by Berner, the prolific Bay Area rapper and entrepreneur, and his partner Jigga, Bay Area cultivator and breeder. The combination of new genetics, the internet, music and being one of the first companies to establish an identity and streetwear company based on the brand represents a priceless time that may never come back. With the music industry backing Cookies and social media and Youtube vlogs documenting the growth of Cookies and breeding projects, the community was able to take that ride with the brand which build a grassroots cult following.
Today, Cookies is one of the most respected and top-selling cannabis brands in California and is globally recognized, amassing a stable of over 50 cannabis varieties and product lines including indoor, outdoor and sungrown flower, pre-rolls, gel caps and vape carts. With two flagship Cookies stores in Los Angeles on Melrose and Maywood and a third location in Redding, Cookies' overall vertical integration and seed to sale business allows for complete quality control at every step from cultivation and production to retail experience.
In 2015, the brand's hip-hop credibility effortlessly expanded Cookies into streetwear and today offers a range of products for both men and women in the apparel and accessories categories as well as a curated selection of smoking supplies.

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., May 30, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Hot on the heels of their expansion in 2018, Deep Six CBD has arranged a new deal for seven stores in PREIT mall properties this summer. Deep Six CBD, the boutique-style CBD emporium chain, will now have locations in the majority of PREIT malls by the end of Summer 2019, including:
Unlike less committed businesses, Deep Six CBD has gone the whole nine yards to provide a memorable experience and a vast selection of different products and brands.
"It's easier to think of it in terms of craft beer," said Operations Manager Benton Purtle. "Instead of a more traditional bar where you may only find four or five local standard beers on tap, we've taken more of a 'craft microbrewery' approach - making more than fifty hand-picked options available. Apply that mentality to CBD, and you've got Deep Six. Many other businesses choose one favorite CBD brand to represent or promote. We go out of our way to bring more brands under our roof with each passing day."
Rather than carts and kiosks that are notorious for their "here today, gone tomorrow" approach to mall retail, Deep Six CBD has given their brick and mortar stores a more intimate, customer-focused approach to CBD sales and consumer education.
Company President Nick Kruczaj, a US Air Force veteran who founded the company, explained, "We're just happy to be able to provide a higher standard of service, the widest range of products, and the most thorough customer experience to an ever-growing collection of communities. We're lucky; not everyone can honestly say that their business provides a benefit to a community."
BURLINGTON, Vt., May 30, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- As a company long known for flavors like Half Baked & Magic Brownies, it's no surprise that Ben & Jerry's has an affinity for the newest trend in food, cannabidiol or CBD. Given Ben & Jerry's history and on-going goal to bring fans the best ice cream possible, the company has announced its commitment to including CBD in its ice cream innovations.
Ben & Jerry's intends to make its CBD-infused ice cream available once CBD is legalized at the federal level. Currently the FDA prohibits adding CBD to food and beverages. The FDA has set a public hearing on the legalization of CBD in food and beverages on May 31st and Ben & Jerry's has submitted comment on the issue.
A National Restaurant Association survey found that three in four chefs named CBD – and cannabis-infused food-- as a hot trend in 2019. "We're doing this for our fans," said CEO Matthew McCarthy. "We've listened and brought them everything from Non-Dairy indulgences to on-the-go portions with our Pint Slices. We aspire to love our fans more than they love us and we want to give them what they're looking for in a fun, Ben & Jerry's way."
Ben & Jerry's is looking into sustainably-sourced CBD from Vermont. Values-led sourcing is an important part of Ben & Jerry's product development. By using high-quality, sustainably-sourced ingredients, the company helps to support a Linked Prosperity model within Ben & Jerry's supply chain, making sure Ben & Jerry's is positively impacting every community in which it is a part of. The company currently sources its brownies from Greyston Bakery, which implements an open-door hiring policy; and its cookie dough from Rhino Foods, which hires refugees and sources its dairy from the St. Albans Co-op.
Ben & Jerry's encourages its fans to visit benjerry.com to sign up for updated info on Ben & Jerry's commitment and progress toward using CBD. Fans can also contact the FDA during their open comment window regarding CBD use in food now through July 2nd, 2019.
