In December of last year, the launch of cannabis consumption lounges and restaurants in 2019 was publicly announced by the City of West Hollywood. Eight consumption licenses were approved by officials. Inside those consumption spaces, smoking/vaping cannabis or eating weed-laced edibles would be allowed.

Following the distribution of those licenses, West Hollywood’s first cannabis restaurant is preparing to open its doors. to lovers of the plant by well-known cannabis brand Lowell Herb Co, the weed-influenced eatery will be called Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe.

While the launch date is not yet confirmed, the idea is to kick-start business by summer.

Lowell Herb Co. has earned itself a solid reputation as one of the most popular companies offering a broad selection of strains, pre-rolls, variety packs, and various other products to California’s cannabis market.

Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe will be America’s first ever farm-to-table food and flower restaurant.

A lease was signed by the company for a property in West Hollywood. The rooftop restaurant will feature communal tables, live non-cannabis plants and a spacious outdoor dining area.

Whipping up a storm in the kitchen will be Andrea Drummer. For the last seven years, the veteran cannabis chef has been involved in the production of various private cannabis events across L.A., through her business, Elevation VIP Coop.

Drummer’s menu will feature an assortment of fresh and seasonal dishes which may contain either or both of cannabis’s primary cannabinoids. They are the psychoactive cannabinoid THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and it’s non-psychoactive cousin CBD (cannabidiol.)

No alcohol for sale at cannabis cafe weed-infused treats may be on the menu, don’t expect to wash it all down with a bottle of beer or a glass of wine.

Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe will not sell alcohol, because state law prohibits the consumption of both substances on the same premises.

Since cannabis is the main theme of Lowell Farms, alcohol has been ruled out. Not to worry, however. There will be an array of beverages available to buy on the premises, including smoothies, freshly squeezed juices, coffees, and teas.

If you’re a first-time cannabis consumer and fancy one of the THC-infused dishes on the menu at West Hollywood’s first cannabis cafe remember to wait for the psychoactivity to kick in before you devour more THC-infused treats.

While the effects from smoking cannabis only takes a few minutes to kick in, edibles can take anywhere from one to three hours. This is because the food must be absorbed through the liver before the THC can enter the bloodstream.
