Bigger is better right? That’s how the old saying goes anyway, and we decided to put the old adage to the test by checking out Cookies LA, the premier cannabis dispensary in Maywood California brought to you by the Bay Area rapper, Berner. This MASSIVE 25,000 square foot seed to sale factory is easily the largest dispensary in the country. Cookies is located a bit off the beaten path in Maywood, but once you arrive you definitely know you are in the right place from the high visibility building. We pulled into the fairly sizeable parking lot, and proceeded to walk up to the building into what was one of the most spacious lobbies i’ve ever been in.
Bright, well lit, and with a massive Cookies logo on the wall, it was honestly NOT what I expected walking in. Everything within the lobby was well kept, extremely clean, and organized. When you hear of a rappers dispensary opening up in south east LA, high end is not exactly what you picture. This was the direct opposite of that very assumption as everything in Cookies LA was made to resemble the same experiences you would get at any high end shop in Los Angeles. The even the ceilings didn’t escape the design process as they had clouds painted throughout, beautiful art of cannabis on the walls, plants on clean tables, it was a beautiful lobby. The front desk staff is located to your left upon entry into the building, and at the time I arrived they looked like someone new was getting trained. Both people behind the counter were very friendly upon approaching the window and promptly asked if I was first time and if I was medical or not. I handed over my ID and paperwork, and began to work on the forms required for medical patients and explained I was first time. I took a clipboard and sat down in an extremely comfortable chair to the paperwork which went quick. I handed it back in, and before I knew it within minutes I was walking back into the budroom.
