Dr. Greenthumb’s Worldwide — the cannabis company founded by B Real of the hip-hop group Cypress Hill — and its Los Angeles-based dispensary partner LAHC Inc. have mutually decided to part ways.
Dr. Greenthumb’s Worldwide, founded by legendary hip-hop artist B Real of Cypress Hill, and LAHC Inc., a multi-year partner at Dr. Greenthumb’s dTLA dispensary location, have mutually decided to part ways, according to a recent press release.
The shift is due to the quickly changing landscape of California’s cannabis industry, the press release said, as both parties have sought more control over the brand’s direction and operations. After finding themselves unable to negotiate an agreeable path, both parties elected to move forward each focused on their own enterprises.
Going forward, customers should see a gradual change at DTLA’s 2019 Pasadena Ave. Los Angeles store. Furthermore, Dr. Greenthumb’s Worldwide has begun construction at a new Van Nuys dispensary, opening later in the spring of 2023, and a location in Oxnard, expected shortly after the Van Nuys site.
Dr. Greenthumb’s Worldwide representatives said the brand was grateful for the ongoing support of the store’s employees and the service provided to the brand’s fanbase.
“LAHC has played an integral part in the overall brand’s success and we wish them the best as they step in a different direction.” — Dr. Greenthumb’s Worldwide statement
B Real announced plans to build a more active and hands-on managerial model to continue scaling his enterprise and vision, with the mission of amplifying and extending a “culture that honors individuals who are unapologetically themselves.”
