Mike Tyson’s Cannabis Brand Expands National Footprint to Four New Markets, Including Maryland (Includes Two Montgomery County Locations)

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson’s cannabis brand, Tyson 2.0, announced its launch in four additional markets: Arizona, Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania with Columbia Care. The expansion into Maryland will include two Montgomery County locations– in Chevy Chase and Rockville. Mike Tyson previously lived in Montgomery County, where his former home at Congressional Country Club sold last summer.

Per the press release: Columbia Care is Tyson 2.0’s exclusive national cultivation, manufacturing and distribution partner in the markets where it operates. The partnership was first announced in October of 2021, with products hitting shelves in November of 2021. Tyson 2.0 is now available in nine Columbia Care markets, with more planned in the coming months.

“Tyson 2.0 continues to exceed expectations in all our markets, for both retail and wholesale. The ethos behind the brand, making cannabis accessible to all, is resonating with patients and adult-use customers alike, and we are proud to be partnered with the Tyson 2.0 team to help them bring their mission to more people,” said BJ Carretta, SVP, Brand Marketing, Columbia Care. “The collaboration across markets and a shared commitment to consistency, quality and focus on our patients and customers is a critical part of the brand’s continued success across the country.”

“Cannabis has been used as a form of medicine for thousands of years and now more than ever has become widely known to help people better cope with anxiety and depression. As cannabis has helped me, it’s an honor to be able to share greater well-being with fans through the unrivaled Tyson 2.0 products we are developing and our synergistic partnership with Columbia Care,” stated Mike Tyson, Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer of Tyson 2.0.

Arizona patients and customers can now find Tyson 2.0 products at Cannabist Tempe and SWC Prescott. Both dispensaries are offering 3.5g flower and 1g pre-rolls in a variety of strains. Vapes and Mike Bites edibles will be available for sale later this summer. For patients in Maryland, Tyson 2.0 is available in 3.5g flower, 1g pre-rolls, and vapes and can be found at over 50 retail locations, including Columbia Care dispensaries in Chevy Chase, and both gLeaf locations in Frederick and Rockville. In Ohio, Tyson 2.0 is now available at all four Columbia Care dispensaries, in 5.66g flower, 5.66g popcorn as well as 14g flower. In the coming weeks,  28.3g flower bags will also be available. In Pennsylvania, Tyson 2.0 can be found at over 100 retail stores including Columbia Care dispensaries located in Allentown, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. Pennsylvania consumers and fans can purchase 3.5g and 7g flower strains in Tyson 2.0 strains such as East Coast Toad, West Coast Toad, Intergalactic Toad, Dynamite Cookies, and Knockout OG.

“We look forward to keeping the momentum going with our expansion plans driven by strong consumer and market demand nationwide for Tyson 2.0 products,” said Chad Bronstein, President, Chairman and Co-Founder of Tyson 2.0. “We are thrilled to bring fan favorite, premium quality cannabis products available at multiple price points, to consumers and fans across Arizona, Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania and remain focused on further strengthening our partnerships with industry leading MSO’s and their dispensary networks.”

“Tyson 2.0 is excited to expand upon our successful partnership with Columbia Care and build on our strong market position in the premium cannabis market,” said Adam Wilks, Chief Executive Officer of Tyson 2.0. Columbia Care has been a key partner of ours in other markets and their leadership position in the cannabis industry has been integral in the positioning of Tyson 2.0’s nationally recognized, trusted, and respected brand. Expansion in these four new cannabis markets will effectively increase our points of distribution across the nation while driving continued brand performance.”
