On Friday, international cannabis brand Cookies announced the first-ever U.S. consumption lounge in Coalinga, Fresno Country. More specifically, it will be located inside the new Cookies dispensary.

The trailblazing consumption lounge was designed to represent a safe, legal, and responsible way to consume cannabis while having the option to order food, a stoner’s dream come true. The lounge is alcohol-free and includes a custom-made bar, luxurious seating for up to thirty people, and a top-notch filtration system.

Consumers can also purchase cannabis-infused drinks poured over ice or delve into brand names like Lemonade, Collins Ave, Run The Jewels, Grandiflora, Mintz, Runtz, Ocean Grown Extracts, and locally-grown flower EVIDENCE.

The new Cookies Coalinga dispensary and consumption longe is in partnership with social justice brand EVIDENCE, founded and operated by siblings Dan, Casey, and Kelly Dalton. The merger was a natural fit for Cookies co-founder Berner, especially after the Dalton’s provided a pack of VIBES rolling papers in every bag of EVIDENCE’s products.

Casey Dalton mentioned, “We grow cannabis in a former prison in Coalinga, so partnering with Cookies to open the very first consumption lounge in Fresno County is a dream come true.”

The Cookies Coalinga dispensary is located at 144 E. Durian Ave. and recently opened on Saturday, September 18th, where Cookies hosted a grand opening with Berner in attendance. All customers and lounge sitters must be age 21 or older.
