International cannabis and lifestyle brand Cookies announced the opening of its first flagship retail storefront in the vigorous city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. With a 47,000 square foot energy-efficient, state of the art cultivation facility attached, the dispensary will showcase the brand’s award-winning suite of products across its new 3,000 square-foot retail space, along with a curated selection of other local cannabis brands, beginning Saturday, Nov. 18.
“Albuquerque has always been one of my biggest markets as far as music goes, the support and demand for Cookies has been real,” said Berner, Co-Founder and CEO of Cookies. “With Mad Cow being one of our best cultivation partners running the backend and production, and with myself personally hiring the staff, I truly believe this will be one of our best performing stores. I look forward to seeing everyone on the 18th.”
Through an exclusive partnership with New Mexico licensed cultivator Mad Cow Genetics—also the company’s cultivation partner in its home state of California—Cookies Albuquerque represents the brand’s unparalleled dedication to delivering consistent, high-quality flower and infused products. With a highly trained and talented local staff, Cookies hopes to become a central pillar in the state’s thriving cannabis community by bringing a new standard to cannabis retail and product excellence, and supporting the local economy with employment opportunities.
Additionally, New Mexico will be the first market outside of California to carry Cookies’ latest game-changing innovation in cannabis packaging: Flower Tubs. Consumers can expect triple-sealed plastic jars encased in a recyclable wax-coated paper tub wrapped in Cookies’ distinct strain art for maximum terpene protection, ultimate flavor and lasting freshness. As part of the company’s ongoing sustainability efforts, the interior jar can also be reused or recycled.
“Embarking on the journey of introducing our premium products in Albuquerque is nothing short of a dream realized for us. With a profound love for this vibrant city, we’ve poured 20 years of expertise and cultivation knowledge into making this venture a reality in the enchanting state of New Mexico,” said Dimitry Muzychuk, CEO of Mad Cow Genetics. “Thanks to the green light from local regulators, our team has been tirelessly dedicated to delivering not just products, but an experience that embodies authenticity, unparalleled quality and unbeatable pricing. The anticipation is palpable as we unveil this exciting chapter through our esteemed partnership with Cookies. Get ready, New Mexico cannabis connoisseurs – we’re thrilled to place the irresistible allure of Cookies products into the hands of our customers, ready to elevate your senses and spoil your taste buds.”
