The US cannabis giant, Cookies, has expanded its operations and managed to open its first shop in Barcelona, Spain. It is a kind of cannabis dispensary that managed to attract the attention of thousands of consumers in the United States. Still, the cannabis regulations in Spain don’t allow to sell cannabis legally, so the Cookies shop in Barcelona will be focusing on cannabis accessories.
The “Cookies” shops in the USA are a kind of cannabis dispensaries designed to sell cannabis and exclusive products. Now, this kind of specialized trade, even if it is without cannabis, makes the leap and enters the cannabis market in Europe. Barcelona is the city chosen for the company Cookies’ first shop.
The newly opened shop in Barcelona is the tenth the company has opened since 2018, but the first not to market cannabis flowers. Cookies sees a great opportunity in Spain for its development in the European cannabis industry. The company aims to build a strong chain of shops in the emerging European cannabis market.
Cookies is one of the most recognized brands in the cannabis sector. Now, with its first shop opening in Spain, the cannabis company is looking to conquer the European market with its brand. The city of Barcelona has been chosen to open its first boutique. The city’s Gothic quarter is where the owners opened the first Cookies store and the company hopes not to be the only one, planning to open other stores in the future.
Although for legal reasons, cannabis is not sold or dispensed in the Cookies shop in Barcelona, as its American counterparts do, in the newly opened shop in Barcelona, customers can find many other things related to cannabis. The clothes with a special style and with the Cookies brand is the company’s bet for now.

The cannabis dispensary managed a successful launch after a tiny delay
At first, the brand Cookies had planned the opening that coincided with the Spannabis fair last March. At that time, it was impossible to open the trade due to the pandemic confinement and the cancellation of the cannabis fair.
However, that’s all in the past now. On Tuesday, May 26, Cookies opened its shop in Barcelona and with it, the brand establishes in Europe. As it could not be otherwise, many curious and knowledgeable of the brand were queuing to enter the shop and see or purchase the available products.
In the Carrer (street) of Rec 58, in the Gothic quarter of the Catalan capital, is where the new Cookies store is located. Here you will find T-shirts, caps, and other clothing with the brand as the flagship. Also, bongs for cannabis consumption or grinders to grind cannabis can be bought.
A cannabis empire that is going international
The cannabis and clothing Cookies empire was created in San Francisco when rapper Berner and his friend, Jai, the breeder and producer of legendary strains like Girl Scout Cookies, joined forces.
Since then, not only cannabis strains with THC, but all products with CBD, and street clothes are now part of the products that can be found on the shelves of their shops.
At the moment, Cookies brand is very well known and proof of this is the expansion into the European cannabis market. However, its first shop outside the United States is focused, for now, on the brand’s clothing and accessories for consumers. In it, customers will find a selection of products for smokers and clothing, as well as accessories for men and women under the label Cookies SF.
