By expanding their offerings and providing patients with quality, premium flower from Cookies and Lemonnade, Harvest Health & Recreation Inc. has brought a taste of Cali to Arizona. Harvest has teamed up with tycoon and entertainer Berner to bring you two of the most top-selling cannabis brands in California. On September 15th, 2019 Harvest of Tempe hosted a free Launch Party for the Medical Marijuana patients of Arizona to celebrate with special guest Berner the man himself.
Cookies started out as a clothing and lifestyle store in the Bay area and later partnered with grow expert Jigga to produce a variety of spectacular cannabis genetics and became one of California’s most-respected brands. More recently in collaboration with Brett Wilson, a Breeder from Santa Cruz, Lemonnade was created. “All of Cookies and Lemonnade stand for three Pillars; quality, passion, and culture. Everything we do is of the highest quality to bring you guys the cleanest medicine that we can,” says Cookies director of sales London Van Der Kamp. To ensure Cookies stays true to their brand, they relocated one of the co-founders of Lemonnade to Arizona to start and overlook the indoor operations. You can see that they have put a lot of thought and care into providing the highest quality possible.
I had the opportunity to speak with Berner and I asked if he had any plans of sharing other products such as the gel capsules, concentrates, vape cartridges, pre-rolls, etc. He said his goal is to open a few flagship stores and bring everything Cookies and Lemonnade has to offer. In the meantime, Harvest provides limited quantities at select locations of Cookies’ Cheetah Piss, Lemonnade’s Blanco, Medellin #87 and Cake Mix. I also asked how he felt about introducing these strains to the MMJ Patients of AZ he said “I love Arizona…. I grew up smoking out here in Arizona as a young teen so, you know, you can imagine it’s like life goals type shit.”
As I mentioned before, Harvest of Tempe hosted a Launch Party to commemorate the welcome of Cookies and Lemonnade. Decorated with bright green hedges, a lemonade stand with terpenes of your choice, sugar cookies to munch on and a DJ playing the best west coast Hip Hop. The LA vibe was real! MMJ Patients had the opportunity to purchase product, accessories and were given a chance for a photo op with Berner. The party lasted about two hours but the flavors remain, so stop by either Harvest of Tuscon, Harvest of Tempe and Harvest of Lake Havasu and pick up your favorite stain.
