Cookies Debuts Fresno’s First Consumtion Lounge

The Cookies Coaling Dispensary and Consumption Lounge in Coalinga is the first consumption lounge in Fresno County. The dispensary will be connected to the lounge and guests can consume cannabis infused food and drink products, and have food delivered from local vendors. The space will also be available to rent out for parties and private events.

On Sept. 18, Cookies Coalinga Dispensary and Consumption Lounge celebrated its grand opening — the first in Fresno County where you can partake onsite.

The consumption lounge is connected to the Cookies brand dispensary, located on Durian Avenue right off of Highway 198.

The lounge features a custom-made bar, luxury seating and a top-of-the-line air filtration system. The lounge itself covers 1,000 square feet and combined with the store, the building covers about 5,000 square feet.

The Cookies Coalinga Dispensary partnered with local cannabis grower EVIDENCE, which is owned and operated by siblings Dan, Casey and Kelly Dalton. EVIDENCE is owned by parent company Ocean Grown Extracts, also a Dalton company, and grows and manufactures cannabis out of an abandoned, high security private prison in Coalinga to support more sustainable production and help individuals harshly punished for cannabis-related crimes.

Casey Dalton, CEO of Ocean Grown Extracts, said that while the Cookies brand will be handling the management of the store and lounge, Ocean Grown Extracts was actively involved in the acquisition of the property and working with the City of Coalinga to get the project moving.
