Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Café is set to become the first marijuana café to open its doors to the public if its launch on September 1 this year goes according to plan. The West Hollywood Business License Commission gave the new business its final approval by a unanimous decision during a meeting that was held on July 16.
Andrea Drummer, the Head Chef of the café, said that they are proud to be the first in the U.S. to open a cannabis café. Drummer added that they take that responsibility highly, since it will set the pace for the educational and responsible use of marijuana as a food ingredient.
Drummer, a longtime cannabis advocate has authored a marijuana cookbook titled “Cannabis Cuisine: The Art of Cooking with Marijuana.” She has also served as a private chef to several celebrities, including Whiz Khalifa and Miguel. Andrea Drummer has also appeared on a number of television shows showcasing how people can cook with marijuana. These include “Cooking on High” on Netflix and Chelsea On!
The menu of the café, which will include CBD and THC-infused edibles, was designed by Drummer.
The café will have an area designated for people who don’t smoke cannabis and another area for those who smoke the drug. In the smoking area, a tableside service featuring unique strains grown by the company, will be available. A “Flower host” will be in charge of offering this service.
This “flower host” will explain the flavor profiles and specific effects of the different strains on offer before helping patrons to roll a joint. Dabs and bongs will also be available.
Representatives of the café also revealed that the establishment will have an advanced air filtration system in order to respect the interests of people in the neighborhood who may object to the cannabis smells wafting from the café.
The value of this filtration system took on greater importance when it emerged that the rabbi of a nearby synagogue had written to the license commission objecting to the planned location of the cannabis café.
The café is also taking the added precaution of planting landscaping that has been proven to absorb odors and purify air. Digital renderings of this landscaping were released to show that the café is taking every possible step to limit the impact of the establishment upon those in the neighborhood.
Drummer disclosed that the café idea has been fine-tuned over a period of four years and it was a logical next step after the push to have marijuana legalized was attained. Industry watchers believe that the entire industry, including Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX.V: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF) and Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. (OTCQB: NUGS), will be thrilled when this café opens since it will be another step towards making cannabis a mainstream substance.
