Mike Tyson is looking to cash in on the legalization of recreational marijuana in California.
The former heavyweight boxing champion, recently broke ground on a 40-acre plot of land in California. Tyson Ranch is located about 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park. According to The Blast, the plot of land will be used to produce high-quality strains of THC and CBD and conduct research on the health benefits of marijuana, .
The property will also house a plant and supply store, extraction facility, edible factory, “glamping” campgrounds and cabins, amphitheater, and a Tyson Cultivation School to teach growers how to develop their own strains.
Tyson has been a longtime believer in the healing properties of marijuana, and his ranch will work to improve the medical research and treatment of the plant. Cannabis has been proven as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant and antipsychotic agent. It has been used to treat PTSD, as well.
