You may want to start planning a trip to LA soon because the U.S.’s first cannabis cafe just opened in the City of Angels.

Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe opened Tuesday and merges cuisine and cannabis. According to CNN, the restaurant says it is the first business in the United States to receive a fully legal cannabis consumption license out of 300 applicants.

The head chef of Lowell Farms, Andrea Drummer, has tailored the menu at the restaurant to be a reflection of Californian cuisine. There will be seasonal dishes made to complement the effects of THC.

Lowell Farms says the dishes served will not be infused with cannabis because of the current cannabis legislation.

A spokeswoman of Lowell Farms told CNN, “Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe will serve as a welcoming and safe environment for all to enjoy and learn about consumption in the newly legal world of cannabis.”

Other offerings of the restaurant will be a “first-of-its-kind nightlife experience” and “tableside flower service” which will have a “flower host” explaining to customers the various strains along with flavors and effects.

When you visit the cafe, you will be able to use bongs, joints, and pipes to smoke marijuana. There will be both smoking and non-smoking designated areas within the 5,900-square foot space.

In a statement, the restaurant says: “Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe was created because we believed there needed to be a destination for everyone to openly enjoy cannabis in the community. Lowell Cafe is a welcoming space for those who are cannabis connoisseurs and those who are cana-curious and looking to experience cannabis in a welcoming atmosphere.”

Edibles will also be sold at the restaurant.

Lowell Farms will be opened daily from 12 pm – 10 pm.
