Mike Tyson is Making Waves! Former boxing champion launches his own cannabis company

by Christopher Wright aka Blue


Mike Tyson’s cannabis brand Tyson 2.0 was launched last Friday in Colorado through a partnership with Columbia Care, a U.S.-based multistate operator that oversees 99 dispensaries in 16 states. 

Tyson tells CNBC that cannabis makes him a “different person” and that his intentions for launching his own brand are to help others that struggle emotionally and physically. The former heavyweight boxing champion of the world states, “It’s a powerful connection with the buyer.” 


Tyson 2.0 CEO Adam Wilks tells CNBC that Tyson is directly involved with the development of his products, “He’s not just putting his name on a product. We won’t put product on the market unless Mike approves...Mike actually gets to choose the strains that he prefers, the ‘Sour Diesel’ and ‘The Toad’ being some of his favorite strains.”The Tyson 2.0 brand will begin selling a variety of strains by the ounce with plans to sell pre-rolls and 3.5-gram jars of flower in the near future. 


Tyson uses cannabis for wellness management, “If I don’t use it for a week or three days, something of that capacity, I’m a totally different person. And I’m not a likable person,” he said.
