Right before 2018 ended, the city of West Hollywood made history in announcing that cannabis consumption restaurants and lounges would be coming to the area in 2019. Smoking, vaping, and edibles will be allowed on site for the eight companies lucky enough to get one of the consumption licenses. The marijuana brand Lowell Herb Co. has dubbed the first restaurant to open “Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe.” They are slated to open during the Summer months of 2019.
West Hollywood to Open Eight Cannabis Lounges and Restaurants
The renderings show a rooftop restaurant with gorgeous views, lots of gorgeous landscaping, and an outdoor dining area.
The kitchen will be ran by Andrea Drummer, owner of Elevation VIP Coop, who is also a cannabis chef who has done private marijuana events in the area since 2012.
Cannabis will be worked into every dish, and there will be a menu with THC, as well as one with out THC.
California law doesn’t allow for booze to be consumed at the same location as a cannabis consumption location, so drinkers, you are out of luck. However, you will find a variety of coffee, tea, fresh juices, and smoothies.
The bud will be grown locally in Santa Barbara, (pesticide free, of course) and the menu will consist of sandwiches and salads mostly, with “a modern twist on comfort classics.”
More About Lowell Farms
Lowell Farms products can be found in over 250 dispensary locations in California, and they recently started being distributed in the Canadian market. They have investment capital from MedMen, who is a very large player in the dispensary business. They specialize in pre-rolled products but also have made headlines by making weed flower crowns for Coachella, as well as and Hannukah gift sets.
At this point, there isn’t any other information known, such as location, or who else got ahold of the remaining 7 consumption licenses in the area.
