About Dr. Greenthumb

Dr. Greenthumb is a 1998 single by Cypress Hill. The song is about B-Real telling a story about his alter-ego Dr. Greenthumb, a cannabis/marijuana grower. A music video was also released. The name "Dr. Greenthumb" was later used in Tell Me When to Go by E-40. The name Dr. Greenthumb dates back to the 1970s cartoon "Josie and the Pussycats," where the name referred to a villain who ruled "creature plants." It is unclear if this title was lifted by Cypress Hill. The song begins with a comical skit starring the titular salesman who speaks in an unusually high voice. He introduces the listener to his program where he will demonstrate how to grow the best marijuana whilst also providing canopies called "Sizzlean screens" which prevent the police force from looking down at their marijuana farms from their helicopters. A farmer named Jed is one of his clients and he explains how Dr. Greenthumb saved his life as he was harassed by the cops because of his marijuana farm. Dr. Greenthumb persuades the listener to call him all while smoking some of his own cannabis and hacking and coughing. The actual song begins at 1:15 although it is edited on certain releases which makes the song start at 0:59.

Hello, I'm Dr. Greenthumb
Have you ever had the problem of running out of weed
And just can't find some anywhere?
Well try my Dr. Greenthumb grow tips
I'll show you how to grow inside and out
From seed to clone, and the best homegrown
And if you're afraid of those pesky pork choppers in the sky
No worries, we'll fix them too
With one of our Dr. Greenthumb 'Sizzlean' screens
To block the nosy pig's vision
Don't believe me?
Just ask one of my many satisfied clients here Jed Sanders
How well it works

Hyuh, hyuh, hello mah name is Jaid
And ahm a farmer and I've been growin
Mary-jah-wana fer about twenty years and uhh
With Dr. Greenthumb's 'Sizzlean' screen
I don't have to point my shotgun
At them pesky porkers no more
Thanks Dr. Green, you're tha shit

Yes, Dr. Greenthumb's got it all, I guarantee it

"Hello Dr. Greenthumb, paging Dr. Greenthumb!"

Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
I'd like to tell you just where I'm from
In the hills where the trees grow wild with weed fields
The fucking pigs with shields holding the blue steels
Greenhouse effect with the weed connect
(Doctor) DEA can't keep Greenthumb in check (Doctor!)
HPS, God Bless the whole crop
Please God, don't let me see no cops
Trunkload, ready to hit the highway
Don't let the eye in the sky fly my way
Or we gonna have big trouble, that's no shit
Can't be growing without no permit
But f*ck that, I study the 215 trip
That way when they come they can suck my dick
Weed can't grow without attention
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb

Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb!
I'd like to tell you just where I'm from
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb!
I'd like to tell you just where I'm from
Ayo Dr. Greenthumb, come on back one time!

People can't live without the herb man
If not they'd be drinking and driving and swerving
But thanks to Dr. Greenthumb weed grow
In the backyard or inside with hydro
To the kush plant brushing a tangerine dream
Tasty, blowing a fucking smokescreen
Cycles of weed are constantly grown
Somebody give me the razor to cut groves
I'd like to stop, but it feels so good
Horny plants stinking up my whole neighborhood
Sticky angel, I want to leave it alone
But never ever ever gotta worry from my home
What that funny sound knocking at the door (Open up it's the DEA!)
Sorry Greenthumb can't talk no more
Please don't follow me into the sun
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb

Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb!
I'd like to tell you just where I'm from
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb

Out from the lab, no need for rehab
If I can't drive then call me a cab (ese!)
In my closet the weed is dried out
Like Eiht said, ain't no place to hide out
I don't want to buy no weed from no cop
Get knocked up and they close up my shop
That's why I buy no weed from no one
That's why they call me Dr. Greenthumb
The scientifical, mystical one
Growing my crops with the rays of the sun
Come one come all and see how it's done
If you see the pigs there's no need to run
Cause some of these pigs are down with Greenthumb
But you never know what be the outcome
You see the photo in the album
The weed is growing like my erection
Look I never told you where I was from
Some call me Real, but I'm Dr. Greenthumb

Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb!
I'd like to tell you just where I'm from
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb!
I'd like to tell you just where I'm from
Hello my name is Dr. Greenthumb
