Back in July, it was reported that the country's first cannabis cafe was set to open in Southern California, and now Lowell Farms Cafe has opened its doors at their West Hollywood location.

The open-air cafe offers a dining area featuring cannabis cuisine and a designated smoking area. The exact address is located at 1201 N. La Brea Avenue.

A local synagogue, Congregation Kol Ami, was against the project near La Brea and Lexington Avenues fearing that people walking near the cafe would get a contact high. The synagogue is situated across the street from the cafe.

While California law prohibits kitchens from infusing foods with cannabis, the cafe will offer pairings of it with menu items. You'll also find cannabis beverages, vaporizer pens, dabs and much more to go along with specialty menu items like vegan nachos, pulled pork & crispy chicken sandwiches, milk shakes, and so much more.

Sept 24 is the official opening date for the @lowellcafe in #westhollywood. Tag the guest you’d bring as your +1 and what you’re hoping to order off @canna_queen71’s menu and we’ll pick a few of you to invite to a free meal.
