Hungry for something different? Level up your cravings with cannabis-infused food, as restaurants in the U.S. have increasingly jumped in on the latest trend.
Where to dine that offers the best cannabis culinary adventure? You’re in luck. Here are top five restaurants in the U.S. where you can get your gastronomic adventure satisfied.
- Closed Door Supper Club
Cannabis is legalized in San Diego since Jan. 1 this year. The Closed Door Supper Club celebrated the momentous occasion with a menu that features cannabis-infused foods. Marie Daniels, who manages the club, claims that they want to offer something new to customers. At the same time, it gives her chef friends the freedom to let their imaginations run wild with new recipes that are infused with cannabis.
Her pop-up diners do not come cheap as they carry a price tag from $70 to $225 per person. Customers will get to eat a course that is infused with up to three milligrams of THC or CBD oil. The clients can rate the menu if it is okay to their liking or not by flipping up or down a card given to them.
- Lego Optimo
What makes Lego Optimo different is that they allow smoking cannabis in between meals rather than include cannabis to their food. The restaurant collaborated with San Diego dispensary Urbn Leaf to give tours and education about the cannabis industry, including known growers.
A customer will be served four courses accompanied with four strains of cannabis. Their next event will be on Mar. 15, and the price range starts from $135 to $185 depending on how large the group is.
The man behind Popcultivate is chemist turned chef Chris Yang. His famous invention is a thyme-and-CBD-laced green tea called “Capri Sun.” Situated in Los Angeles, private weed dinners such as Popcultivate, are somehow secretive in nature. A diner can expect to pay anything from $100 to $500 per person depending on the course meal.
- The Gathering
Sevan Abdessian and Kris Morningstar have launched a pop-up diner called The Gathering. They serve a menu which is infused by not more than 55 milligrams of cannabis. A customer can expect to pay $250, which includes a five-set course, wine and cannabis. A popular part of their menu is the Aleppo pepper-crusted hamachi with pot ponzu, and dry-aged duck breast with pistachio-sativa puree.
- Oh Man!
Oh Man! plans to merge cannabis with Japanese food staples such as sashimi, ramen and gyoza. The brains behind Oh Man! is Luke Reyes from Butchers & Barbers. The menu will be infused with CBD oil, flowers or infused oils. A diner can expect to pay $100, and the course comes with a free NSFW World T-shirt.
Some diners will be required to be of certain age to be allowed in these cannabis restaurants.
Edibles for your home
Meanwhile, there is a company which sells edibles that are good for the young and young at heart. PotNetwork Holding, Inc. (OTCMKTS:POTN) subsidiary Diamond CBD offers edibles such as Chill Gummies – CBD Infused Gummy Bears, Relax Gummies – CBD Infused Watermelon Slices, Diamond CBD Infused Sour Faces and Diamond CBD Infused Sour Bears. There are plenty of products to choose from including drinks.
In their drink lineup, you can find Diamond CBD Double Shot 350mg, 4-6 Hours of Relaxation Diamond CBD Shot 20mg (60ml) – Jungle Juice, Lean Shot and 12 Pack of 4-6 Hours of Relaxation Diamond CBD Shot 20mg (60ml) – Grape among others.
With more and more states in the U.S. legalizing marijuana for recreational and medical use, one of the industries that are set to benefit is the food and restaurant industry. This means additional employment for people and state income in terms of business tax of cannabis restaurants.
