Dr. Greenthumb’s Dispensary Comes To La Mesa

What started as a track featuring rapper B-Real’s alter-ego (Dr. Greenthumb) on the Cypress Hill IV album has blossomed into a successful cannabis brand in the legal California market.

B-Real launched his chain of Dr. Greenthumb’s dispensaries with the brand’s first location in Sylmar in 2018.

Since then, B-Real has opened additional shops in Downtown Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Cathedral City, and a location near LAX, which has yet to open.

On Monday, September 13, the chain announced the opening of its newest shop in La Mesa.

The La Mesa dispensary is the first Dr. Greenthumb’s shop to open in San Diego County.

B-Real says he is excited to bring the Dr. Greenthumb’s experience to San Diego, noting that the local community loves high-quality cannabis.

“After all of the uncertainty of last year and the terrible effects it had on the community, I want to bring everyone together safely for a day of celebration, not just to celebrate how far Dr. Greenthumb’s has come, but the community in general,” says B Real. “This grand opening marks a new era for La Mesa and all of San Diego metro.”

B-Real says he feels honored to deliver top-shelf products and celebrate the community that has shaped him as an artist, entrepreneur, activist, and person.

In honor of the community that helped B-Real’s brand become one of California’s most highly reputed retailers, Dr. Greenthumb’s La Mesa will host a day-long grand opening celebration on October 2.

The grand opening will feature cannabis vendors, lowriders, food trucks, guest appearances, giveaways, live mural paintings by graffiti artists Strive One and MEX.

B-Real will also be in attendance from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

To honor B-Real’s Mexican and Cuban heritage, the grand opening will feature a Latin theme.

Some of the day’s featured foods will be pan dulce and tamales from George Lopez’s Chingon Bakery and unmedicated churro cookies from the Big Pete’s edible brand.

Adults over 21 are welcome to join in the grand opening celebration.
