Grandiflora Genetics, founded by Oakland equity applicant Mark McCafferty, has taken the cannabis community by storm since its inception in 2008.
McCafferty, known for breeding unique and distinctly different strains, developed a strategic approach to dropping product on the market through Instagram, sparking a conversation with Berner, founder and CEO of Cookies.
Grandiflora is an Oakland brand that started all from the bay area around culture around cannabis. This partnership with Cookies is going to be epic as both companies have common goals of providing top shelf, quality cannabis that still has the culture behind it.”
The Cookies and Grandiflora partnership is the latest announcement in the Cookies commitment to supporting equity applicants within the cannabis space and will give Grandiflora operations the foundation needed to flourish.
The union will support Grandiflora’s cultivation and distribution which is based out of McCafferty’s facility in Oakland, a space that is operated by local Oakland residents.
The facility is home to breeding, testing and R&D, all of which are central to the unique and top quality strains that both Grandiflora and Cookies consumers have come to know and love.
Grandiflora will launch flower, pre-rolls, extracts, sungrown, indoor, and edibles through this partnership, delivering exceptional cannabis that provides the ultimate sensory experience.
“Not only is Grandiflora a Bay Area brand but it’s a brand that represents the true meaning of the equity program,” says Berner. “I realize we are truly blessed to be in the position we are in and remember exactly where we came from.
We knew with the right team and platform that Grandiflora would crush it and it deserves to expand nationwide alongside with us.
McCafferty, known for his artistic horticulture practice, aims to develop rare and exclusive flavors that echo his established and innovative strains like Oakland Purp, High Tech and Melonatta. Together, Cookies and Grandiflora will create the most exotic and high-end cannabis the market has to offer.
