After months of delay, one of America’s most popular weed brands is landing in Bangkok later this month. 

Jan. 21 has been set for the opening date of Cookies in Bangkok’s Soi Ruamrudee, about four months after it was originally expected.

The San Francisco-based weed giant even invited a Buddhist monk to come over and bless the new storefront, where visitors will be able to buy cannabis alongside clothing and fashion accessories such as smell-proof backpacks, sweaters, and baseball caps.

On opening day, Cookies founder and American rapper Gilbert Milam, aka Berner, will show up to greet fans. 

“Cookies Thailand looking special, we will be there for the opening on 1/21 !” Berner wrote on Instagram. “To see our 1st store in Asia speaks volumes of what 2023 will look like for us. Shout out to the whole team at Cookies. And shout out to the team on the ground in Thailand. This is beautiful.”

Cookies operates dozens of dispensaries in the United States, where it sells weed and apparel. It is credited with a popular strain known as Girl Scout Cookies.

Cookies Thailand is located on 51/2 in Soi Ruamrudee in Bangkok, reachable by foot or motorbike from BTS Phloen Chit. More details are available online.
