Amsterdam Co. Coffeehouse, Houston’s long-awaited destination for coffee spiked with CBD oil, is just about ready to open its doors in the Heights.

Owners Michael Migl and Drew Bailey tell Eater that the shop will kick open its doors at 807 West 19th Street on September 21, after more than a year in the works. The debut is somewhat of a soft opening, with the team at Amsterdam Co. Coffeehouse using that time to perfect the menu of coffee drinks, cold-pressed juices, and snacks, all infused with cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis that can purportedly reduce anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.

As far as the drinks are concerned, look forward to a traditional menu of espresso drinks — lattes, cappuccinos, espresso shots, and the like, along with specialty drinks like a popular Dutch coffee drink, Cascara coffee, vegan hot chocolate, and chai lattes. “We don’t really believe in the CBD-infused coffee,” says Migl. “We want to promote adding it yourself, or us adding it for you if that’s what you want.” To that end, Amsterdam Coffeehouse will add CBD to its drinks via drops of an oil-based tincture, along with a CBD-infused sugar option.

In addition to the coffee drinks, Amsterdam Co. Coffeehouse will also carry a variety of CBD-infused products, ranging from topical lotions intended to ease aches and pains to candies and other edibles. “We’re working with reputable companies, like Cookies and Cheeba Chews and Punch Edibles, that are already operating and making THC-infused products where they’re legal,” Bailey says.

Amsterdam Coffeehouse also has plans in the works for educational events held at the shop, ranging from latte art competitions to coffee cuppings and CBD dinner pairings with local chefs.

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.
