Mike Tyson’s new cannabis edibles are shaped like ears


Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has not exactly taken a back seat during his retirement years. In fact, the 55-year-old has been using his time to launch an acting career remember his memorable feature in the Hollywood hit, The Hangover? and is now focusing his attention on the cannabis market.

Ever since Tyson first consumed cannabis products – an experience that he claims completely transformed his life – the New York native has been pouring his energy into launching a cannabis empire. Now, he seems just about ready for anything.

Tyson has cleverly intertwined his iconic boxing history with cannabis to attract a diverse crowd of customers. His latest brand of cannabis edibles are shaped like an ear with a chunk taken out of it a quirky product design representing the unforgettable 1997 moment when he bit Holyfield’s left ear,

Tyson’s cannabis business has gone from strength-to-strength

Since 2016, Tyson has been actively selling cannabis branded products through his Tyson Holistics range. His selection of edibles, flower and pre-rolled joints feature cannabis-containing products that are as powerful as his moves in the ring! 

Then, in December 2017, construction of the Tyson Ranch property a 40-acre weed plot located in California began. Moving forwards, the former athlete started discussing the subject of cannabis on his podcast, which is cleverly named, “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.”

In 2021, following the unfortunate failure of his ranch, Tyson proceeded to establish a brand new range of cannabis products under the name “Tyson 2.0.” He felt inspired to launch the range after introducing cannabis into his regular routine. The plant, he claims, helped him to feel healthier than he had ever felt in his entire life. 

“I lost 100 pounds. I started fighting people again, at 55. Everything started to change from a business perspective, from a health perspective, and from an ideology perspective as far as the clearness of my thinking. I didn’t know I could feel this good at 55,” Forbes quotes him as saying in an interview last year.

Cannabis edibles offer convenience and on-the-go dosing

There’s no wonder why Tyson has decided to develop an edible. After all, it’s not necessary to smoke or vaporize cannabis in order to feel the green plant’s abundant therapeutic and, depending on the strain, mind-altering effects.

Cannabis edibles can provide long-lasting effects and provide the consumer with discretion in terms of consuming at home or on the move. When cannabis is baked into an edible, the plant’s active compounds travel through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream, meaning that it may take hours for the effects to be felt at their peak. 

Although cannabis edibles can be unpredictable in terms of how long it takes for the effects to kick in, the longer “high” duration makes it an appealing choice for someone who wants to make the most of every dose. Plus, there’s no foul smell or risk of damaging the lungs associated with edibles; unlike there is with smokeable forms of cannabis.

If you are thinking about trying cannabis edibles for the first time, opt for products that contain a low dose of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the non-psychotropic compound cannabidiol (CBD). 

Beginning with 2 mg of cannabinoid potency or less is recommended so as to understand your tolerance. Even if you don’t feel anything at first, it’s advisable to wait at least two hours before consuming another dose.
