LA MESA, Calif., Sept. 14, 2021 – PRESS RELEASE – Dr. Greenthumb’s, one of California’s most recognized dispensary chains, announced the opening of its sixth location. The dispensary is located in La Mesa, Calif., and will be hosting a grand opening celebration on Oct. 2.
Dr. Greenthumb’s dispensaries were founded by legendary Cypress Hill rapper and cannabis activist B Real in 2018. Dr. Greenthumb’s is known for its extensive menu of top-shelf cannabis including Insane, Alien Labs, CAM, Cannabiotix and Wonderbrett. Since the first Dr. Greenthumb’s location opened in Sylmar, the dispensary’s popularity has exploded, prompting its expansion into additional locations throughout California including: Cathedral City, downtown Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento and a just signed, but not yet open, location near LAX. The La Mesa dispensary is Dr. Greenthumb’s first in San Diego County.
Honoring the community that helped build Dr. Greenthumb’s into one of the state’s most highly reputed retailers, Dr. Greenthumb’s will be hosting a daylong grand opening celebration at the La Mesa dispensary. Patrons can expect to find a variety of activations, guest appearances, cannabis vendors, food trucks, murals painted on-site by notable graffiti artists Strive One and MEX, giveaways and more. B Real will be making a special appearance.
“I’m so excited to bring the Dr. Greenthumb’s experience to San Diego,” B Real said. “The community here loves high-quality cannabis and I feel honored not only to be able to deliver top-shelf product, but to celebrate the community that has shaped who I am as an artist, entrepreneur, activist and person.”
The grand opening will have a distinct Latin theme, paying homage to B Real’s Mexican and Cuban heritage. There will be local Latin street artists creating murals on-site, lowriders showcased in the dispensary parking lot and food trucks boasting Latin American cuisine, including George Lopez’s Chingon Bakery, which will be providing Pan Dulce and Tamales and cannabis edible brand Big Pete’s, who will be baking unmedicated churros on-site. All adults 21 and older are welcome to join the grand opening celebrations.
“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,” B Real said. “This grand opening marks a new era for La Mesa and all of San Diego metro.”
The Dr. Greenthumb’s grand opening celebration will be from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 2 with B Real scheduled to appear from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Dr. Greenthumb’s La Mesa is located at 8760 Campo Rd., La Mesa, CA 91941.
