[Ed. – Does the cafe serve coffee or just the pot?]
America’s first cannabis cafe offering guests farm-to-table cuisine alongside vaping, joints, bongs and prepackaged edibles has opened in West Hollywood on Tuesday.
After much anticipation Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe opened to a full house of smoking guests and long queues of marijuana enthusiasts outside its front door.
New Yorker Joy Alison Cohen, was among the first customers. She was excited that her weed-and-dine experience no longer required a flight to Amsterdam’s infamous ‘coffee shop’ scene.
‘I’ve had to fly to Amsterdam to experience this. No more. We have better pot now too, so it is awesome,’ she said.
‘Flower Hosts,’ or ‘budtenders,’ help patrons aged 21 and over navigate the menu, giving advice to connoisseurs or novices on what strain of cannabis to order with their meal and the potency and flavor of each product.
