Share All sharing options for: Houston’s First CBD-Obsessed Coffee Shop Will Of Course Open on 4/20

The Smoking Pot, a new coffee shop serving up CBD-infused beverages, is set to open this week in Spring Branch.

The new shop at 8510 Longpoint Road announced on Instagram that it will open its doors on — of course — April 20, also known as “international weed day.” Owner and native Houstonian Erick Resendez tells Eater that the shop will serve drinks and breakfast pastries, many of which will be infused with cannabidiol, or CBD oil. The shop occupies a pretty small little space at the address, and signage painted by the artist behind Houston’s famous “Be Someone” mural announces its arrival, complete with cannabis leaves and coffee beans to drive home the shop’s weed-and-caffeine theme.

As far as the drinks on offer are concerned, caffeine enthusiasts can look forward to nitro cold brewed coffee and espresso drinks, along with canned, CBD-infused cold brew coffees from Austin’s Cuvee Coffee. Empanadas, Mexican sweet breads, and locally-baked pastries, will also be on offer. “Our guests will have the option to have their coffee with or without CBD,” Resendez says. “They will also have the option between a water-soluble CBD or an oil that we mix into the beverage.”

The Smoking Pot is the first CBD-focused coffee shop to open its doors in Houston, but it won’t be the last. As Eater reported earlier this year, Amsterdam Co. Coffeebar is currently planning to open its doors in EaDo sometime this summer. Houston is a little bit late to the CBD-infused beverage trend — over the past year or so, shops slinging caffeinated beverages infused with CBD, which proponents claim can treat everything from anxiety to cancer, have popped up across the country.

There will soon be a new spot for your morning cup of joe, but with a bit of a twist.

The shop will specialize in coffee and espresso drinks that feature CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-intoxicating chemical found in cannabis. Eater Houston reports that Amsterdam Coffee Co. will add drops of CBD oil to its drinks and will also have a CBD-infused sugar. Amsterdam Coffee Co. will also stock CBD-infused products such as lotions and candies.

People have used CBD to treat anxiety, depression, seizures and more. It does not contain THC, the chemical in marijuana that creates a high.
