“We felt like ‘LSD Joint’ was an appropriate name for our collab given the Freak Brothers are from the ’70s, from San Francisco, and this joint is EXTREMELY strong. We will be dropping our collab with the Freaks on 4/19, available at all of our California stores,” said Berner, co-founder and CEO of Cookies. “I love that the animated show is so weed-friendly and done with class. I'm incredibly excited to announce that I am joining the Freak Brothers show alongside an epic cast.”

Courtney Solomon, Freak Brothers’ CEO and show Executive Producer, said: “We’re excited to welcome Berner to the show. His proven track record of innovation and his authentic love of cannabis culture is a perfect marriage with the Freak Brothers. We look forward to a long collaboration together.”

Born at the apex of the counterculture revolution following the Summer of Love, with 45 million comic books translated into more than 20 languages sold worldwide, “The Freak Brothers” have carved a niche as the OGs of cannabis since 1968. Its influence has set the stage for cult classics like “Cheech and Chong,” “Half Baked,” and “Pineapple Express.” Now a globally distributed adult animated television series, “The Freak Brothers” continues to cement its legacy as an icon of cannabis culture, both on screen and on Cookies’ retail shelves.

“This is the first ever official cannabis product for ‘The Freak Brothers,’ so we wanted to lean into the cool trippy Bay Area heritage shared by both brands while producing a product the Freaks themselves would have loved to spark up,” said Greg Goldner, Head of Brand & Strategy for Freak Brothers.

As Cookies continues to innovate and push boundaries within the cannabis space, its influence reverberates not only within California but across the country and internationally, shaping narratives and challenging stereotypes surrounding cannabis consumption. The LSD Joint comes in a glow-in-the-dark tube, and the package features a unique QR code that unlocks exclusive downloadable artwork.

“From the intricate details of the engraved, reusable wood tips to the vibrant, psychedelic designs of the package, every aspect of this collaboration perfectly captures the creative ethos both ‘The Freak Brothers’ and Cookies are renowned for,” Goldner explained.

Seasons 1 and 2 of “The Freak Brothers” are currently streaming for free on Tubi. The show is executive produced by Courtney Solomon (“AFTER,” “Mr. Church,” “Cake”) and Mark Canton (“Power” Universe, “Arthur The King,” “300,” “Den of Thieves”), along with award-winning showrunners Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland (“King of the Hill,” “American Dad”). Harrelson, Haddish, Davidson, Gilbert Shelton and Manfred Mroczkowski also serve as executive producers on the series.
