The+Source celebrated the launch of Tyson Ranch products with a special appearance from Mike Tyson on Saturday, Aug. 31.
Hundreds of customers attended a Tyson Ranch pop-up at The+Source’s Henderson, Nevada location for the opportunity to meet Tyson or win signed memorabilia and other prizes.
Customers had the opportunity to earn raffle tickets throughout the day for a chance to meet Tyson or win a variety of prizes, including a signed boxing glove and loaded cannabis gift bags.
Mike Tyson, a former professional boxer and the founder of Tyson Ranch, posed for photos with an enthusiastic crowd and answered questions about the company’s products.
Tyson Ranch products are now available at both locations of the popular Vegas-based dispensary, including flower, pre-rolls, DWiiNK beverages and edibles.
A local resident, Tyson launched Tyson Ranch in Las Vegas, noting that “it’s only right that my hometown should be treated and serviced by my products.”
The Toad, a flower strain derived from Chemdawg OG and Girl Scout Cookies strains, as well as the sativa Sour Diesel pre-roll, are among some of Tyson’s favorite Tyson Ranch products.
When asked about brand partnerships in Las Vegas, Tyson said “The+Source adds up to the Tyson Ranch quality and is a great representative of the brand.”
Formerly known as “The Baddest Man on Planet,” Mike Tyson is now embracing the world of health and wellness with his new cannabis ventures.
With Tyson Holistic, Tyson is focusing on spreading the word about the benefits of CBD.
“I’ve been fighting for over 20 years, and my body has a lot of wear and tear,” Tyson explained.
“I had two surgeries and I used marijuana to calm my nerves, and it would take the pain away … But before, they had me on those opiates, and those opiates had me all screwed up.”
He wholeheartedly believes that cannabis can help people move away from opioid addiction.
