The boxing legend wants his cannabis station on 165 hectares
Iron Mike, 52 years old, founded his own company in 2016, called Tyson Holistic Holdings, and now owns his own cannabis farm in Southern California. Taking advantage of the legalization to expand his business he reveals the intention to launch a cannabis center on 165 hectares.
I thought of all the good I could do in helping people with cannabis.
When you have probably as much wealth and time as Mike Tyson, anything is possible. Tyson Ranch produces stumps, edible products and by-products. Here is what is planned in this future holiday center:
- A music festival
- The longest lazy river in the world (water game)
- There are plans for a hotel
- Tyson University, dedicated to teaching culture techniques
- The ranch will be used for research purposes
- A video game arena
One of the main goals of this venture is to educate and engage the public in the therapeutic properties of cannabis, especially CBD. Tyson himself created his own CopperGel product, in which they are now trying to integrate the CBD. Tyson Holistic has also invested in CHILL, a water company that develops alkaline water infused with CBD.
As a person who has spent most of his life fighting and has been using opioids to relieve pain, it's perhaps not surprising that Tyson puts a lot into the healing power of CBD. "I have been fighting for over 20 years and my body is very worn," he explained. "I had two surgeries and I used marijuana to calm my nerves and that would relieve the pain.
THEY TAKEN MY OPIACES - THEY FUCKED ME IN THE AIR
Tyson, who once said he had "killed the monster in him" by smoking toad venom in the desert, told Cannabis Tech Today: "I thought of all the good I could do in helping people with cannabis. He firmly believes that cannabis can help people get away from opioid dependence.
For this reason, Tyson is collaborating strategically with professional athletes and veterans to help promote the healing benefits of the substance. Key investors and advisors include former NBA commissioner David Stern and former NBA player Al Harrington.
Tyson Ranch has also developed numerous partnerships with representatives of the NFL, WNBA, UFC, NHL, MLB, FIFA and BIG3. We do not know when Tyson Ranch will be completely finished, but it promises great surprises and offers opportunities for the cannabis tourism industry
according to the last newsTyson plans to move to Antigua to establish another farm.
