The world we live in is rapidly changing, and cannabis is the driving force behind many of these positive changes that we’re seeing. Everywhere you look, there are success stories coming to light about entrepreneurs that have succeeded in a highly competitive cannabis market, and one of those success stories is the Canna Café.
Canna Café was established in 2020 and hasn’t taken a backward step since the doors of their first location opened. The cannabis industry is expanding with leaps and bounds. It may have started with cannabis dispensaries, but cannabis clients are looking for the next big thing, and healthy and delicious cannabis meals and snack is proving to be a big hit.
One of the things which many people are unaware of in the cannabis business is that it’s extremely difficult for many minorities such as African Americans and Latinos to break into the market. Licensing rules and regulations are extremely complicated and expensive. While some states have gone the extra mile to make their cannabis business laws as inclusive as possible, we still have a long way to go.
Canna Café is proud to be owned and operated by a minority group. Like many African Americans, Canna Café has faced its fair share of difficulties establishing its business, including racism and prejudice. Still, despite these challenges, they’ve managed to not only survive but thrive in the current tight economic and social conditions.
The Canna Café Expansion Plan
Canna Café has plans to open another five more locations in the next two years, with three current locations already operating. Canna Café specializes in a variety of different healthy vegan and non-vegan meals that are gluten-free but with a twist. Their delicious and healthy meals also include healthy servings of hemp, delta 8 THC, and delta 9 THC.
Delta 8 THC is a relatively new cannabinoid that is gaining a lot of popularity. Unlike regular THC (Delta 9 THC), Delta 8 THC exists in a legal grey area. After hemp cultivation and the production of goods from hemp was legalized at a federal level by the 2018 US Farm Bill, a lot of people have been getting excited about Delta 8 THC because it can be produced from hemp, which is legal as long as it contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.
One of the interesting things about Delta 8 THC is that it produces similar effects to Delta 9 but milder. Many people compare Delta 8 to the light beer of the cannabis world. It has similar but reduced effects and results in less of a high, and produces less anxiety than Delta 9 THC.
Canna Café has some exciting expansion plans in the future, with two new locations almost ready to open. The Redondo Beach, California location is going to open this summer, while the West Loop, Chicago store will be opening its doors on March 13th.
Despite overcoming some serious challenges, Canna Café has managed to maintain a 5-star rating for both their customer services and also their delicious range of cannabis-inspired foods and drinks.
