If holidays are stressing you out, how about taking a sip of a CBD-infused cocktail that tastes like Capri-Sun, or filling up on tomatillo aguachile with a side of chickpea-fried hemp? Two restaurants opening soon are incorporating the cannabis plant into their menus: Nostalgia in Santa Monica and Gusto Green in downtown.
