Lowell Café has begun accepting reservations as it gears up for a grand opening in West Hollywood on Sept. 24.
The cafe will serve farm fresh food, coffee and juice, along with a wide range of cannabis products recommended by an expert budtender. Marijuana sommeliers will float from table to table, advising guests on which strain goes best with the buratta and grilled peach salad or the fried chicken sandwich.
None of the food contains cannabis, but there will be a selection of edibles – made off-site – available at the counter. Chef Andrea Drummer has put the menu to complement the heightened senses that patrons might experience when enjoying the marijuana on offer. The cocktails are non-alcoholic.
More than three companies applied for on-premise marijuana sales licenses in West Hollywood, but the city has only issued eight. They include a spa and a virtual reality gaming lounge. Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Café will be the first to open when it receives its first visitors later this month.
Guests can expect to see a star-studded crowd. A-list investors in Lowell Herb Co. include Miley Cyrus, Chris Rock, Mark Ronson, and Sarah Silverman.
He hopes that the café will become a place for creative types and artists to hang out alongside anyone looking to enjoy cannabis in a welcoming environment.
Lowell Smokes is the number one pre-roll brand in California, the world’s largest cannabis market. It has listings in 350 retail stores across the state and it also offers home delivery.
Pre-rolls include CBD smokes and THC smokes split into indica, sativa and hybrid, all featuring the distinctive bull logo, plus grinders, clothing and other merchandise. It is currently in the process of developing new products and gearing up for national expansion plans.
Alongside the likes of Cyrus and Rock, MedMen Enterprises (CSE: MMEN) invested in the firm’s parent company, The Hacienda Company, this summer. Los Angeles-based multistate dispensary operator MedMen said Lowell can help it secure a loyal customer base in the nascent marijuana industry.
