This week Nashville’s first cannabis restaurant set to open in Germantown.
Michael Solomon, owner of Craft Cannabis, will open Buds & Brews in Germantown.
The city will be home to the first brick-and mortar-cannabis restaurant in Tennessee.
Craft Cannabis was started in 2019 by Nashville native Michael Solomon and is opening Buds & Brews in late April or early May at 1246 Third Ave. N.
The 21-and-above space will allow customers to partake in legal, hemp-derived THC through the infused condiments that come with traditional American bar eats.
Solomon told the Business Journal that Buds & Brews was born out of what Americans love most – hanging out in a fun environment, watching sports and eating delicious food.
The meals themselves will not have THC and the sauces will come with dosing spoons to ensure a safe experience that can be customized by individual users.
The kitchen will be led by chef Sam McGee.
“This is the right time and location in Germantown for us to be able to offer this truly unique infused culinary experience for patrons,” Solomon said in a news release.
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized cannabis with 0.3% of THC or less. Since then, Solomon has seen the cannabis industry grow exponentially in Nashville and thinks it will continue to do so in the coming years.
Craft Cannabis edibles, vapes and flower can be found at The Holistic Connection, which has nine locations and is set to open 14 more this year. The Holistic
Connection is a flower and dab bar that Solomon likens to a wine tasting experience.
Buds & Brews plans to offer dessert edibles as well as drink choices with the extracted hemp-derived THC.
