COOKIES With Gilbert Milam Jr. aka Berner
COOKIES Founder and CEO Gilbert Milam Jr. aka Berner joins us today on Dazed And Infused With Latham Woodward only on Cannabis Radio. Cannabis mogul, chart-topping rapper, and Founder and CEO of the cannabis lifestyle brand COOKIES, Gilbert Milam Jr. aka Berner, announces Couch Locked Network (CLN), an aspirational digital platform that will feature recurring comedy, news, and “good vibes” content, said Berner. Business entrepreneur and Billboard charting rapper Gilbert Milam Jr. aka Berner sit atop COOKIES, a cannabis and clothing brand with over 30 retail outlets in eight states and two countries. Drawing on his younger days working as a budtender in a legal medical cannabis shop, Berner knew he had something unique to offer the cannabis world, especially since so few people of color legally own any parts of the 15 billion-dollar industry they’ve otherwise participated in for decades.
In the later 2000s, he partnered with Bay Area breeder and cultivator Jai “Jigga” Chang to create COOKIES, a strain of medical marijuana they formerly marketed as “Girl Scout Cookies.” The cannabis strain, paired with a streetwear clothing line of the same name, gave birth to a company and an entire cannabis enterprise. Premier Cannabis Brand COOKIES Founder and CEO Gilbert Milam Jr. aka Berner hosts “Couch Locked,” a 420 Comedy Show on April 20, 2021, the holiday celebrating marijuana. The hybrid live/virtual event is co-hosted by comedians Michael Blackson and Paul Rodriguez and features co-headliners Bob Saget from the cult stoner comedy flick Half Baked, Jeff Ross aka The Roastmaster General, and Lil Duval. The lineup also includes DJ and comedian Cipha Sounds, Precious Hall, and Teddy Ray.
