The legendary boxer Mike Tyson has a fortune valued at 300 million dollars and has invested it in a diversified way and one of his most profitable businesses in recent years is related to cannabis.

The former heavyweight champion owns the company TYSON 2.0, which is responsible for providing high-quality cannabis products throughout the United States. On multiple occasions after his retirement, Tyson has admitted to using marijuana during his time as a professional boxer and has claimed that the recreational drug helped him with his performance.

The product inventory includes ear-shaped edible gummies, as a reminder of the bite against Evander Holyfield, which include 10 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and are flavored with apple, watermelon and blackberry. The company also sells marijuana in pre-forged cigarettes or by weight in different presentations.
