Mike Tyson looks to revolutionize the marijuana industry as he breaks ground on a mega-resort for cannabis in Southern California.
California City, CA – With the legalization of recreational marijuana in California on January 1st, former heavyweight boxing champion 'Iron' Mike Tyson is breaking ground on a 40 acre mega resort dedicated not only to cultivating high-quality strains of THC and CBD, but also utilizing state of the art technology to forward research into the numerous health benefits of cannabis.
Tyson, along with business partners Robert Hickman, Jay Strommen, and city mayor Jennifer Wood recently broke ground on a massive 40-acre plot of land on December 20, in California City – a remote desert area roughly 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park.
The Blast notes that "Tyson Ranch" will dedicate 20 acres of the facility as growing facilities that "will allow master growers to have maximum control of their environment." The mega-facility will also have a "Tyson Cultivation School" to teach growers the latest methods to perfect their own strains of cannabis.
Along with growing high-grade cannabis, Tyson Ranch will feature:
• Hydro-feed plant and supply store
• Extraction facility
• Edible factory
• Premium "glamping" campgrounds and cabins
Tyson is reportedly a long-time believer in the medicinal properties of marijuana, according to The Blast, and aims to use the ranch as a place to forward research into the healing properties of cannabis.
