We’ve noticed lots of restaurants and bars are getting in on the CBD action lately, garnering plenty of attention with pop-up culinary and cannabis events or simply adding a CBD-infused cocktail to their menu. Some of our favorite venues are also offering their spaces as weed-friendly and open to celebrations of all varieties, and we’re seeing a number of fine dining chefs embracing creative uses of cannabis too. If you’re considering hosting a little something extra special, here are the top venues and restaurants currently riding the weed wave.
