West Hollywood Approves Cannabis Cafes and Consumption Lounges



In a surprise announcement yesterday, West Hollywood released the names of businesses sure to up the city’s cannabis game beginning in 2019. The City spent seven months screening 300 applicants for highly-coveted cannabis licenses, which includes cannabis restaurants, cafes, and consumption lounges.

That’s worth repeating: West Hollywood will have actual eateries, lounges, and cafes that allow smoking, vaping, and/or munching on edibles and weed-infused food. WeHo officials began screening applicants in April, where entities spent thousands of dollars to submit detailed proposals to an independent five-member committee. There are five license categories, which brings the following new businesses into WeHo: 

  • Eight edibles-only consumption area cafes

  • Eight consumption lounges where cannabis smoking, vaping, and edibles can be consumed on-site

  • Eight medical dispensary services

  • Eight new adult-use retail businesses

  • Eight cannabis delivery services
