Tyson 2.0, the newly launched cannabis company from heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson, today announced an exclusive cultivation partnership with Common Citizen in Detroit, one of Michigan’s largest fully integrated cannabis operators.
“Bringing Tyson 2.0 products to Michigan with a partner like Common Citizen upholds our promise to share the many wellness benefits of this powerful plant to those who need it most,” says Tyson, chief brand officer for Tyson 2.0.
“Before I found cannabis, I used to be a very different person. This plant has changed me for the better, and I’ve made it my mission to share this gift with fans here in Michigan and across the nation.”
The products, tested and approved by Tyson himself, include the exclusive strains “Knockout OG” and “Pound for Pound Cake.” Michigan will be the first market in the nation with access to the strains, which will be sold initially at Common Citizen locations in Detroit, Battle Creek, Hazel Park, and Flint in eighth-ounce jars of flower and 1-gram pre-rolls.
“Common Citizen is excited to partner with a living legend like Mike Tyson, who shares our passion for promoting the many benefits provided by cannabis and our mission to unite people through the positive power of cannabis,” says Michael Elias, CEO of Common Citizen.
“This historic partnership embodies Cannabis for Humanity and serves the unique, individual needs of all our customers. We are honored Mr. Tyson chose Common Citizen to launch his safe, affordable and high-quality cannabis products across Michigan.”
The rollout of the strain will take place over the first quarter of 2022 before expanding to more than 200 retail outlets around the state.
“The partnership between Tyson 2.0 and Common Citizen further extends our scale and strengthens our commitment to bringing premium quality cannabis that is indicative of Mike’s seasoned taste to fans nationwide,” says Adam Wilks, CEO of Tyson 2.0.
“Common Citizen prides itself on crafting premium cannabis for the people, and Mike’s vision speaks to just that — greater access to quality cannabis products through a range of price points and consumption methods.”
