Tyson 2.0, the cannabis brand of former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, is continuing its nationwide expansion with its launch of products in three new states.
Tyson’s line of edibles, concentrates, and flower are now available at retailers in Delaware, Illinois and Washington D.C. In addition to the markets just announced, Tyson 2.0 products, including the popular Mike Bites edibles shaped like Evander Holyfield’s “holy ear” are available in California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Nevada with plans for more states coming online in the near future.
Columbia Care Partnership
Cannabis cultivator, manufacturer, distributor, and retailer Columbia Care is partnering with the champ for the rollout.
“Cannabis has been a game changer for me both physically and mentally, and I’m excited to share the healing benefits of this miracle plant with Tyson 2.0 fans in Delaware, Illinois and D.C.,” said Tyson, who serves as Chief Brand Officer of Tyson 2.0. “Through Columbia Care’s retail network, we are expanding our market presence and gaining nationwide distribution.”
Columbia Care’s three dispensaries in Delaware, located in Rehoboth Beach, Smyrna, and Wilmington are offering flower and Bubble Hash of Tyson’s all-time favorite strain Sour Diesel, Fruit Punch vapes, and pre-rolls and vapes of Sour Diesel Coma.
Products available to consumers in Washington D.C. include Mega Runtz flower and kief at Capital City Care, DC.
In Illinois, people can find Tyson’s brand at Columbia Care’s Chicago location and select retail locations of Zen Leaf, Windy City, and Ascend.
Currently in Illinois stores are Mac 7 flower and the fan-favorite Toad line including flower of East Coast Toad and Sonoran Toad. Tyson 2.0 products will also be available at Medmen, Cresco, and Green Thumb Industries in the company’s next quarter.
