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.
