To show some love to the most deserving personalities in the biz, the newly revamped Cannabis Cafe in West Hollywood (formerly the OG Cannabis Cafe) swung open the doors for a festive night of food and frolic. This Budtender Appreciation Party showcased the finest attributes of an inviting consumption lounge – good munchies, positive vibes and elegant ambience.

Budtenders traveled far and wide from their SoCal posts to get a first feel of this world class experience where all the stoner senses are satiated. After imbibing the yummy edibles, the pre-rolls sparked up the warm evening – creating a smokey sight in the open-air veranda while DJ Ben Cohen @bencocomusic spun the sexy sounds inside. What makes this place rare is the offering of cocktails on the south side of the space, where open consumption takes center stage on the north side. It’s official, West Hollywood’s consumption lounges are creating a culture that is becoming the desired destination for Cannabis enthusiasts inside and outside of the industry. This is your tribe, so come be a part of it!

We stoners need more safe zones to hang and share the energy and ideas inspired by the plant, so the more the merrier. And if you’re in the area, check out their Marijuana Meditations that include a Cannabis infused sound bath every second and last Tuesday night of the month.

Super props go to Dizzies and Huxley for providing the tasty, abundant treats. Thanks for getting everyone properly lifted!
