Ever gotten high off a hamburger?

Well pretty soon you’ll be able to in Nashville…legally.

Buds & Brews, Music City’s first cannabis restaurant and bar, will be opening soon, featuring condiments infused with hemp-derived THC to take your meal – and you – to the next level.

The cannabis-infused sports bar concept is being developed by Michael Solomon, the owner of Craft Cannabis, a “seed-to-shelf” cannabis company that creates products infused with hemp-derived THC. Craft Cannabis will also be producing the condiments used at Buds & Brews.

According to Solomon:

“You’re going to have regular ketchup and mustard and barbecue sauce and ranch dressing on your table. But if you wanted the THC-infused, the CBD-infused — all derived from hemp — you can get those ramekins. They are sealed, pre-manufactured and come here straight to the facility.”

The condiments will all come with a dosing spoon, and comply with Tennessee law allowing hemp produced with 0.3% THC or less.

And in addition to the condiments, Buds & Brews will also feature cannabis-infused drinks and desserts:

“We’ll have your smokey margarita, we will have your bloody maryjane, and gotta have your Nashville favorite. We will have, not the Bushwacker, we will have the weedwacker.”

Customers have to be 21 or older to enter, and all menu items will be sold only to be consumed on site, so no to-go bags or Uber Eats if you want to take the fun home with you.

Buds & Brews will be located in Germantown, just outside of downtown Nashville, and will be opening sometime late this month or early May.

Seems like a big missed opportunity to not have a grand opening on 4/20…
