This month Hi Flora, a vegan restaurant, will have its unveiling. The exquisite eatery specializes in delectable plant-based dishes, and if customers desire, they can accompany their meals with invigorating, nonalcoholic beverages infused with THC derived from hemp.

Heather Klein, owner of Hi Flora and the brilliant mind behind Roots to Rise, aims to create a unique and distinguished experience that sets her establishment apart from other vegan restaurants in the Twin Cities. Hi Flora customers have the opportunity to purchase 5mg THC tinctures and incorporate them into their chosen culinary delights or beverages. Klein aims to provide an assortment of flavors in the future, allowing customers to create their own distinctive combinations.

Klein’s restaurant introduces a fresh and innovative concept amid the prevalent cannabis craze, which was sparked by the legalization of THC edibles by state lawmakers the previous summer—provided those edibles are derived from hemp. Furthermore, the recent legislation passed by the DFL-led lawmakers permits the recreational use of marijuana, which is slated to become legal on Aug. 1, 2023.

Marijuana and hemp are akin to close relatives, differing primarily in the levels of THC present in each plant. According to the federal standard, hemp can only have a maximum dry-weight THC content of 0.3%. The maximum permitted dosage for hemp edibles in Minnesota is 5 mg per serving and 50 mg per package.

“Last year’s change in the Minnesota law opened opportunities for an array of delightful and unconventional THC experiences. Now, those possibilities are expanding even further,” Klein said. “We were genuinely thrilled to incorporate these offerings into our menu, making them accessible to all.”

Along with THC tinctures, Hi Flora’s bar menu offers two THC-infused drinks made by neighborhood breweries.

Many Minnesotans were surprised by the passing of the hemp edibles bill, as no state licensing system or additional levies other than the regular sales tax had been put in place prior to its passage. However, as part of a more complete cannabis package, which legalized marijuana this year, legislators have since proposed new rules and taxes. The new regulations permit the sale of THC-infused beverages in liquor outlets.

Angie Heitz, wine director of North Loop Wine and Spirits, attested to the rise in acceptance of THC-infused beverages. The shop currently stocks a wide range of alcoholic beverages made by regional producers and brewers.

According to Bob Galligan, director of government-industry relations for the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild, the new law has largely eliminated the uncertainty that surrounded the operation of companies in the THC edibles sector.

As the market matures, more opportunities will be created in tandem with the growing demand for marijuana products. This growth in demand will trickle down to cultivators, and they in turn may require more cultivation equipment, such as the micro-gardens commercialized by Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX).
