Sacramento, California – Dr. Greenthumb, known for its Insane OG cannabis strain, opened a titular, medical cannabis dispensary yesterday, marking the second in what is quickly becoming a chain.
“As Sacramento is the capital of California, we are honored to be one of the limited number of licensees that the local jurisdiction and state have approved for business. We are thrilled to look toward a future where Dr. Greenthumb can continue to provide high paying jobs, and quality tested products,” says B-Real of Cypress Hill also known by his alter ego, Dr. Greenthumb, one of the owners of his namesake dispensary.
He admitted he didn’t see legalization coming, but always hoped and pushed for it.
“We had faith that it [legalization] would occur, but whether or not it would smile upon our time to see it, we didn’t know; but, we knew we were fighting for it. It’s been great to see the progress and change that has happened in the cannabis culture, as it relates to legalization, medical use, all aspects of it,” he says.
“I think Jack Herrer would be proud of what people have done in terms of legalization. I think he’d be a little upset about some of the things going on as well like the taxes for cultivators, retail shops and anyone getting into a cannabusiness. The taxes in California are crazy, like 40%. They make you jump through hoops,” B-Real adds.
