Badu has managed to remain true to her authentic self while managing to remain successful throughout her burgeoning career. Badu credits spiritual development with contributing to her longevity and success; throughout her journey, she has found ways of uplifting women’s spirits and fans through music; this collaboration led her and Berner to launch “That Badu”, an array of cannabis wellness products designed to provide serenity and empowerment.

Badu carefully selected a selection of herbal oils, lotions, tinctures and teas to empower and uplift the women. Each product is designed to provide therapeutic effects while being safe and easy for women to use. Cannabis further enhances these positive results, helping balance central nervous system and soothing minds.

Teas are carefully formulated with an elegant blend of herbs, including Reshi, Maitake and Lion’s Mane Mushroom Complex.

Badu’s commitment towards empowering and supporting women is also reflected in her home décor. She has antiques and vintage pieces throughout. Her latest purchase is a custom made chaney bracelet created by local artisan Mimi Smith. Chaney jewellery is made up of old fine china pieces found along the beaches or on former plantations located in St. Croix. Both Badu and Badu’s mother as well as Badu’s ancestors used to work there as slaves.

“That Badu” will release their next collection just in time for Mother’s Day. This collection contains their exclusive “That Badu”, a strain developed by Berner in collaboration with them, as tinctures, oils and hand-rolled cigarettes.

This Badu Technology is Tea

Cookies’ first herbal non-psychoactive mushrooms tea is the Badu Technology Tea developed in partnership with Erykah Badu. This tea is made from vanilla and bergamot flavored black tea leaves, decaffeinated to maximize enjoyment. It also contains 10mg CBD/5mgCBG for stress reduction and relaxation.

Badu’s goal in this collaboration was to empower and uphold women. Name and terpenes of this strain are inspired by the song “On & On,” which was written by Badu to empower women. Ideal for morning rituals or helping focus throughout the day.

Badu has been a vocal advocate for cannabis since the beginning of her career. She even had a brand weed named after herself! She has also supported many cannabis-related charities, from doulas to obtaining a medical marijuana license in Texas.

She promoted That Badu specifically for women and mothers in her YouTube videos, suggesting that it is an ideal strain to improve mood and concentrate. She described it as uplifting, but not heavy or sedating; adding that it makes for ideal nightly vision quests or meditations.

Cookies developed and nurtured the strain themselves in partnership, and its parentage includes Limoncello (or Lemonchello 28) crossed with Jet Fuel Gelato genetics for an indica hybrid strain with uplifting effects that results from its crossbreeding. Leafly reports that the citrus flavors in this strain provide uplifting effects, while the jet fuel gelato genetics give it fruity notes.

Badu’s Apple Tree line stands out from other celebrity-backed cannabis brands because she offers more than just accessories; her Apple Tree collection contains edibles and flower from 8th packs to pre-rolls. Additionally, she’s offering a Mother’s Day box that contains two types psilocybin infused tisane (Ginger Magic & Earl Grey Creme), as well as functional flavors (Golden Focus & Bergamot Brain Boost).

Cookies’ flagship shop in Oakland will start carrying Badu Technology starting May 14 — just in time to celebrate Mother’s Day. For more information, please visit our online shop.

Apparel by That Badu X Cookies

Erykah badu has been a champion of women’s rights for many years. She’s teaming up with Cookies Cannabis to launch That Badu as part of Women’s History Month. The premium range is designed with women’s needs in mind, and will debut on International Women’s Day (March 8). A second wave will be released around Mother’s Day, 14 May.

Badu’s brand vision was fully realized from the research and testing to the packaging design. All products have a purple-and white motif that resembles ancient Chinese Qinghua porcelains. Together, the two collaborated to create a piece that celebrates cannabis’ beauty and ritual.

As part of the partnership, Badu has released their first cannabis cultivar. It is a cross between Lemonchello & Jet Fuel Gelato. This can be purchased as eighths & pre-rolls in all Cookies & Lemonnade stores across California starting March 8th. The “That Badu’ line of products, including topical creams and edibles, as well as non-psychoactive mushrooms tea, will be available online through the Cookies CBD and Badu World Market sites.

Berner and Badu’s collaboration reflects the growing links between music and cannabis industry. As cannabis becomes increasingly mainstream, musicians as well as brands are turning to the drug in order to elevate their craft.

Badu explained this in her statement. “Creating a line of cannabis products designed specifically for women feels very, extremely necessary,” she said. “There is a place for women in cannabis and I love being part of the committee of women who are supportive on this path.” The Badu X Cookies line is now available at selected Marni boutiques in the US and will be soon expanding internationally.
