PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ —  The popular MAGIC CASTLE dispensary is unveiling new looks and an impressive array of sativa strains when it reopens Saturday, Sept. 5th, as LEMONNADE, in partnership with the international cannabis lifestyle brand COOKIES. The rebranding brings a new line of unrivaled sativa strains to a vital Pacific Northwest cannabis market.

The LEMONNADE flower menu features the debut of the much-awaited Lions Mane strain, top-selling Cake Mix and numerous other LEMONNADE sativas, known for their uplifting, euphoric qualities. All strains were developed by celebrated cannabis breeders in collaboration with Berner, the Bay Area rapper and entrepreneur who seeks to give the cannabis community imaginative offerings.

«For the last four years we’ve focused on generating new sativa genetics with flavor profiles that are unlike any you’ve seen,» said Berner, Founder and CEO of COOKIES. «The sativas already on the market were limited and all pretty much tasted the same, so it was past time for something fresh. The genetics we’ve developed are rare and different, with a lot of flavor, and we are proud to partner with MAGIC CASTLE to bring our unique products to Portland

With LEMONNADE, Berner continues the COOKIES tradition of bringing the cannabis community together and creating buzz around exciting new strains. 

LEMONNADE offers a new retail experience for Portland consumers at the sales counter, with pristine eighths and 1-gram offerings pre-packaged to protect and preserve the flower trichomes.

Consumers can enjoy the full sensory experience of perfectly cultivated cannabis, with aromas and tastes to please all connoisseurs, along with dynamic original packaging design when they open LEMONNADE and COOKIES products.

«The West Coast is known for amazing cannabis, and LEMONNADE is bringing the fire with these uplifting new sativas,» said Alex Eliasyan, President of MAGIC CASTLE. «This partnership gives us the opportunity to provide more top-shelf cannabis on the same level as high-end cognac or champagne.»

LEMONNADE additionally features the first drop of exclusive LEMONNADE apparel in Oregon, along with the popular COOKIES cannabis product portfolio and cult-favorite sister brands RUNTZ, GRANDIFLORA, COLLINS AVE, MINNTZ and RUN THE JEWELS. More LEMONNADE retail stores are coming soon in Oregon and California. LEMONNADE, located at 11321 SW 64th Ave., is open Monday-Saturday 9am-10pm and Sunday 9am-8pm.
