DTPG, or Downtown Patient Group, is one of the OG dispensaries when it comes to the Los Angeles cannabis community. As the official retailer of Nipsey Hussle’s Marathon OG strain, their roots run deep in the culture. Initially opening their doors in 2006, they’ve been growing their own fire cuts in-house since day one. From their original grow/retail space, Nipsey found and named the Marathon OG strain he began cultivating with The Cure Company. They’ve since moved into a 60,000 square foot free-standing building in the industrial district of LA last year on 4/20.
As their name suggests, Downtown Patient Group goes the extra mile to ensure patient satisfaction. Alongside the fact that they house any of the hyphy genetics a cannasseur may be searching for, this place is official. It feels like the kind of luxurious and spacious dispensary you’d see a rapper visiting on camera like Rich the Kid or Action Bronson. Their plentiful menu is reflective of the status they’ve built in the community over the last decade and a half. The diverse menu is equally matched by their efficient and highly knowledgeable staff.
Downtown Patient Group is open monday-thursday from 9am-9pm, 9am-10pm Sat-Sun, and 10am-9pm on Sundays. First-time customers can enjoy 15% off their purchase with no minimum. Currently, they’re celebrating their daily Happy Hour from 4:20-5:20pm with 20% off all of their sativa strains from The Cure Company. DTPG maintains an active presence on social media, regularly interacting and engaging with their customers and showing off choice products. It’s here you can also see any exclusive deals that might be coming up at the dispensary.

In addition to the hallmark selection of strains that Downtown Patient Group (DTPG) grows in-house, there’s an all-star roster of California cannabis brands they also carry. Considering that Nipsey was a frequent visitor to their grow, to the point that he found his favorite cut of OG Kush from them says something. The Marathon OG strain, The Cure Company, and Nipsey’s legacy have full representation at DTPG. A few of their other top-selling brands are Cookies, Buddies Brand, Top-Shelf Cultivation, Exotic Genetix, STIIIZY, and Connected Cannabis Co.
Running through the pages of products available at Downtown Patient Group, I can fairly easily pick out a few choice products. If we’re talking about affordable yet potent cannabis concentrates, my choice is usually Buddies Brand. DTPG carries their Liquid Diamonds Live Resin in 510 thread CCell cartridges. There aren’t a lot of cartridges that are single-source live resin that is available for under $50 for a full gram.
Looking at their options for flower, the choice is pretty obvious—the Mimosa from The Cure Company. Mimosa is one of my favorite strains that is bursting with citrus flavor, and The Cure Company’s cultivar is only running $30 before tax. I can trust it’ll deliver on robust flavor and potentially uplifting effects.
For edibles, the delicious fruity flavor of Smokiez edible Fruit Chews is hard to resist. They’re currently carrying a Blackberry flavor I’ve yet to try. With 100mg of THC in each bag, these can be a sweet way to relax after a meal.
Topicals are always an easy choice—I want pain relief. Topicals are a potentially great way to find fast-acting relief for muscle or joint pain. The Comfort + Extra Strength Body Butter from Sweet Releaf looks like it would do the trick. This terpene-rich mixture comes with a 14:1 THC-to-CBD ratio that seems like it’d produce relieving effects quickly.
