A California restaurant is going to offer marijuana to customers as part of their regular menu.

According to Fox News, The Lowell Cafe in West Hollywood confirmed that they will become the first-ever “full-service restaurant and lounge to offer farm-to-table cannabis and cuisine,” in America.

To enjoy a menu specially designed to “enhance the cannabis experience,” a diner must be over the age of 21.

In its website, Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe states that they were one of eight establishments granted a cannabis consumption license in West Hollywood. Reportedly, there were more than 300 applicants, and Lowell Cafe was granted the first license.

Lowell Cafe said that it will offer a “flower menu,” which, according to them, will change daily “based on seasonal harvests available from our network of family farms.”

Customers will also be able to avail of prepackaged cannabis-infused products, but current legislation prevents the cafe from serving any infused dishes.

The restaurant is described as “a welcoming space for those who are cannabis connoisseurs and those who are canna-curious and looking to experience cannabis in a welcoming atmosphere,” by its website.

“The first-of-its-kind” menu was created by Chef Andrea Drummer. Lowell Cafe adds that the menu is going to be “reflective of California flavors with its farm-to-table experience for both cuisine and cannabis.”

In the press materials released by the restaurant, Chef Drummer is described as “highly regarded for her ability to pair a strain with a dish that compliments its particular flavor profile.”

The Lowell Cafe will open in September (with no specific date yet) and will start taking reservations two weeks before the official opening date.

  1. Serving prepackaged products in a restaurant is like selling customers Snickers bars for $15.00 and then unwrapping it and putting it on a plate for you. Thanks, I’ll toke up at home. Can you even imagine the line of cop cars waiting outside the parking lot for the customers to drive into the street following their “meal?” It’d look like an LAPD taxi stand.
