Whether cannabis should be legalized or not has been a bone of contention in many countries around the world. Most people have dreamt of how the world would be if weed was legalized and everyone could smoke publicly. Well, Californian residents and visitors are lucky to host the first-ever weed café in the US. The Original cannabis café is the talk of the town as it has set the pace for many entrepreneurs who would want to venture into the business.

A weed cafe is the only place where you can order food, drinks as well as marijuana products to vape, eat, or smoke. Like other regular cafes, you get to consume your ‘meal’ in a social setting. The cannabis café has no difference from any other restaurant. The menu is like any other- with beverages, food, and wine, but it comes with marijuana offerings.
How do they work?
Weed cafes offer you the best marijuana experience where you can enjoy a variety of marijuana strains and cuisine. The only difference with any other café is that you have to make reservations prior to your visit. They have a few walk-in guests.
When you visit after making reservations, you will be to your indoor table or patio where you will give your order. The servers are amicable. They will provide you with a menu with a wide variety of marijuana options. They will also help you light a bong or even roll a joint once you have ordered your edibles. If you come with your weed, you will be charged a ‘tokage’ fee of about $20.
Food and beverages appear on a different payment list, and you may have to pay for your marijuana in different counters after your experience. The cafes are built with state-of-the-art air filtration and ventilation systems to help customers breathe easy. If you don’t like smoke, the cafés have reserved some patios for non-smoking use.
What’s on the weed café menu?
There are a variety of dishes in the menu prepared by the renowned chef Andrea Drummer. They include; Smash burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries, salads, coffee, milkshakes, and different vegan options. Additionally, you will also find cannabis edibles. However, there are no cannabis-infused dishes.
Can you purchase alcohol?
The recently opened weed cafes may not offer alcoholic drinks. The pioneer cafes like Original café, however, have plans to introduce a short beer and wine list for its customers. This means you may find some cafes that offer alcoholic beverages.
Why do they exist?
Like food and alcohol, we may need to sit in a social setting to enjoy our meals. Likewise, a weed café gives you an option to get out of your home and enjoy the marijuana products with other people. You also get professional help from trained personnel who will handle marijuana and its accessories for you.
Additionally, some people don’t like stacking marijuana in their homes. A weed café gives you an alternative to use the product only when you need it. It also serves tourists who may want to use weed in the legal states.
Weed cafes provide the public with a legal and safe space to enjoy marijuana products without fear. They also offer quality and tested products. Additionally, you get to enjoy your favorite meals while consuming marijuana responsibly.
