Many cannabis lovers must have dreamed of a restaurant or a cafe with a menu full of cannabis. Is not it true? Well, it's not a dream anymore.
The first cannabis cafe in the United States will open on September 1, 2019. It will be located at 1201 N. La Brea Ave. in West Hollywood. Lowell Herb received final approval at the West Hollywood Business License Commission meeting on Tuesday, July 16th.
The restaurant will be allowed to prepare meals with cannabis, and will also allow guests to smoke and dabber during their meal. For Andrea Drummer, the Cafe's Head Chef, being the first restaurant to serve cannabis-infused foods is a responsibility she does not take lightly. “We are pleased to lead by example,” she said. The coffee menu was prepared by Drummer and will include cannabidiol (CBD), THC infused food, and vegetarian dishes.
Andrea Drummer is not a newbie in the world of cannabis since she wrote the book “Cannabis Cooking” and “The Art of Cooking with Marijuana”, and worked as Chef for rapper Wiz Khalifa, Miguel or Chelsea Handler. She has also appeared in Netflix productions “Cooking on High” and “Chelsea On”.
“This is a historic moment, not only for cannabis, but for the country as a whole,” she says. “As pioneers in the end of cannabis prohibition, we are dedicated to the same treatment of cannabis. than alcohol. The first step was to put it on sale. It is now about giving the public access to a safe communal space where cannabis can be consumed without stigma “.
This restaurant is not the first place where people can use cannabis. The state of Alaska has authorized the opening of cannabis lounges last March.
