The United States’ first legal Cannabis Café is going to be opened in Los Angeles on October 1. The café, “Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Café”, is going to be opened in a rooftop location in West Hollywood. The café will offer “farm-to-table dining” experience and smoking options besides highlighting cuisine and cannabis. The cafe has come up under the new business license which has allowed on-premises cannabis consumption, along with food and drink service.
Chef Andrea Drummer, trained at Le Cordon Bleu, will lead the kitchen. Chef Andrea has earlier created a menu to accompany the cannabis strains on offer at the café. The menu of the upcoming café comprises dishes are meant to compliment the heightened senses from cannabis consumption.
Among the various dishes that would be on offer include dishes such as grilled peaches and burrata, crispy brussels sprouts or a fried chicken sandwich.
The non-alcoholic cocktails have also got place in the menu. The cannabis products of the Lowell Farms will be available for sale.
Diners will also be getting the “table-side flower service”. The “flower hosts” will work like a sommelier, who will be explaining each strains flavors and effects on the table. Guests who want their cannabis consumption other than “puff puff pass” can rather go for options like dabs and bongs.
The marketing materials for the café have an old-time feel and ask guests to celebrate “the end of prohibition”.
The café is especially targeted to tourists who come to California from prohibition states and want to try legal marijuana.
The casual cannabis shoppers know the Lowell Farms brand very well. The brand happens to be among the top cannabis growers. It’s main office is in Santa Barbara County and the brand is working with a number of small family-owned farms in California. The company is mainly focusing on marketing a range of organic and seasonal cannabis products.
Over 300 people have applied for the West Hollywood’s on-premises cannabis consumption. However, only eight have got the permission to start their businesses. All eight are not cannabis cafes though. There will be a spa, a virtual reality gaming lounge and an adult retailer.
