[O]ne of the boldest caffeine-cannabidiol concepts yet is set to make its Houston debut this weekend: The Smoking Pot is billed as a new coffee shop that will serve CBD-infused beverages and pastries to Houstonians. Owner Erick Resendez told Eater Houston that patrons will have their choice of nitro cold brew, espresso drinks, and canned CBD-infused cold brew from Cuvée Coffee. Guests will be able to order any of the coffees without or with CBD, by adding either a water-soluble or oil concentrate. The food menu will include empanadas, Mexican sweet breads, and other locally baked pastries. A grand opening will be held on April 20 at the shop’s Spring Branch location.

The Smoking Pot will be Houston’s first-ever CBD café; however, another business, Amsterdam Co. CoffeeBar has already announced its intentions to open later this summer in the city.
