The Hollywood-loved Lowell Herb Co. (along with nightlife impresarios Mark and Jonnie Houston) plans to unveil the West Hollywood café in August, serving up an array of cannabis along with CBD- and THC-infused cocktails and small bites.

The first cannabis café in the U.S. is opening its doors in West Hollywood next month, barring any state or county licensing roadblocks. Dubbed Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Café, the project is the brainchild of Sean Black and David Elias, co-founders of the upscale Los Angeles-based cannabis brand Lowell Herb Co. Building on the comfort factor of a restaurant/lounge/bar, the idea is to deftly add in a curated side of cannabis.

The company (that counts cannabis retailer MedMen as an investor) is known for its pre-rolled Lowell Smokes sold at over 300 dispensaries, as well as rustic retro packaging with recycled craft paper, and a commitment to organic fertilizers, natural materials “from seed to sale” and sun-grown products to conserve electricity. In keeping with the brand’s local and sustainable focus, core elements of the café are sourced from local artisans and everything from the wood on the tables and benches to the silverware is reclaimed and reused.

Mark and Jonnie Houston (the brothers behind L.A.-based nightclub and restaurant business Houston Hospitality) are partners in the café. So expect some entertaining musical and dance acts to come, says Black. Along with some A-list guests, given Lowell’s impressive Hollywood following. On record are Miley and Noah Cyrus, Jimmy Kimmel, Paris Jackson, Sarah Silverman, Bella Thorne, Diplo, Chelsea Handler, Mark Ronson, January Jones, Calvin Harris, Halsey, Usher, David LaChapelle, Awkwafina, Ireland Baldwin and The Weeknd.
