Because of their iconic packaging, premium cannabis, and notoriety, Cookies’ products fly off shelves; this subsequently leads to fake sellers taking advantage of their name and brand. Be wary when purchasing Cookies products from unlicensed vendors because they are probably fake. Continue reading to learn about the differences between real and fake Cookies weed, and how to spot legit verse counterfeit products.
Cookies Cannabis: Real vs Fakes
Think you’ve purchased a legit Cookies product from your local smoke shop? You may have been duped, along with the smoke shop (hopefully they aren’t trying to mislead you). There are many versions of fake Cookies available online, in smoke shops, and likely from your neighborhood dealer. Here are the tell-tale signs of a fake Cookies product from carts to flower.
Cookies Carts: Real vs Fake
Real Cookies cartridge boxes should come with an official lab test sticker, the milligrams displayed with the official weed symbol, and have a website you can visit to learn more about the product.
Fake brands can negatively affect your health because they don’t test the products for safety and are likely unlicensed. In comparison, you can tell Cookies carts are lab-tested by the sticker on the packaging that includes the THC or CBD content, date of harvest, and batch number.
Additionally, the packaging itself should also have the official weed symbol and information on who made it. Since Cookies has both standard cartridges and a G Pen Gio pod, it should say somewhere that it is made by Berner and/or G-Pen/Grenco Science. Furthermore, real Cookies carts only come in half grams (also listed as 500mg or .5 mL). Meaning, if you see a box with a higher volume of concentrate or no information about the volume, it is a fake.

Cookies Flower: Real vs Fake
Amazon, Wish, and other wholesale websites make it easy for people to sell fake Cookies products by offering packaging that looks staggeringly close to the original. One easy difference to spot is whether there is a sticker on the packaging. The sticker will detail the THC or CBD content, date of harvest, and batch number. If it doesn’t have this, it is likely illegitimate or a repackaged product that you shouldn’t trust.
Another way to possibly spot a fake is comparing real Cookies flower costs with the deal you are getting. You can go online and search for the flower price on the official Cookies website before you get it from an unverified source. If they are priced below the price online, it is likely fake.
