Berner revealed in a recent Instagram post that he has cancer.

The rapper and marijuana mogul is the co-founder of Cookies, one of the most respected cannabis strains in the United States.

Berner posted “Time to Fight” in bold white letters on a black background with a red exclamation point to his IG account today, and the caption revealed the meaning behind those white letters.

I think what made cookies so special and my music career so special was always being transparent and sharing my journey with you guys . So I figured instead of fighting this alone , I wanted the people who got me where I’m at today to fight with me . 3 weeks ago they founded traces of cancer in a series of blood tests .

Today I went in for a procedure hoping to get off easy and found out I have a major fight ahead of me . If you know me , this has always been my biggest fear , but I am content with where I’m at and what I’m facing as well as every possible outcome .

The next month or so will be focused on addressing this as aggressively as possible as well as spending time with my family, finishing my album { Gotti } and planning out the next steps for cookies . As I am strong and want to have as much faith as possible, I also am being realistic. I want Cookies to live forever and i want my team to have a clear direction of what my vision is , lots of menu planning to do with my breeders and with my partners .

I want to focus on a Whole Foods plant based diet and make sure that there is ABSOLUTELY NO STRESS in my life . I love all of you guys so much and feel so blessed to have been able to accomplish half the things I did and really hope to be able to stick around and do a bunch more . With that being said , if you are a friend , there is no reason to text or call , just send that good energy my way and let me get my mind right . I will probably miss a few events and will be back as soon as my mind and body permits.

I really want to encourage everyone to pay attention to their body and health , if you have cancer in your family , there is blood tests you can take like i did to check for over 40 kinds of cancer , I’m so glad I did because knowing is half the battle . It’s time for the biggest challenge of my life and I’m ready ! Again thank your for everyone of you !

The reason I’m in such a good place mentally is because of you ! We built something so powerful, organic and genuine it still blows my mind . I’m extremely grateful to have such an amazing family and support system and team at cookies ! Love you guys , it’s time to FIGHT
