Houston's first CBD coffee shop will open its doors on an unofficial holiday for marijuana enthusiasts.

The Smoking Pot will open at 8 am on Saturday, April 20. According to the event page, the grand opening will feature "unique blends of coffee including a variety of CBD infusion coffee and products" plus artwork from local artist Khriz Obey. Catering will be offered for "your munchie need," the post notes. 

The shop is located at 8510 Longpoint Rd. in Spring Branch.

Texas law only permits hemp-based CBD products without THC. Though it is a derivative of the cannabis plant, CBD carries many of the same benefits as marijuana, but without THC, users don't have the psychoactive effects. CBD oil without THC doesn't cause a high, but proponents say it can help users relax. 

No word if Willie Nelson's small-batch CBD coffee will be for sale at the new shop.
