COOKIES CARTS We know that cannabis is a big part of people’s lives and brings them together. Our control of the entire experience—from start to finish, seed to sale—sets us apart. We take pride in our in-house cultivation, global varieties, and a full lineup of strain-specific products.
Weed vapes have been all the rage the past few years, especially as more US states have decided to legalize. But over the past several months, a vaping illness/injury crisis has rocked the nation, hospitalizing nearly 1,900 people and taking the lives of at least 37.
This edition of how to spot fake or knock-off vapes is about the legal weed brand known as Cookies and the potentially dangerous counterfeit Cookie carts currently floating around the streets. So, responsible toker: Here’s what you need to know before puffing that “Biscotti” vape allegedly made by Cookies and how to spot if it’s a fake.
While many of the popular vape cartridge brands we’ve covered at MERRY JANE are totally fake — meaning they’re unlicensed and not lab-tested for safety assurance — Cookies carts are licensed, real, and lab tested. They were originally conceived of by the rapper and weed entrepreneur Berner, and all real Cookies carts are produced through a partnership with the makers of G-Pen, Grenco Science — a totally legit, licensed weed vape company based in California.
But every success story is followed by copycats, and Berner’s Cookies line is no exception. Don’t let shady dealers dupe you. Here’s how to tell if your Cookies carts or vape pens are real.
