(NEO: CCHW) (CSE: CCHW) (OTCQX: CCHWF) (FSE: 3LP) (“Columbia Care” or the “Company”), one of the largest and most experienced cultivators, manufacturers and providers of cannabis products in the U.S. announced today it will launch iconic heavyweight champion and cannabis connoisseur Mike Tyson’s much-anticipated Tyson 2.0 cannabis line starting Friday, Nov. 26 in Colorado through The Green Solution (TGS). The brand will continue to roll out across the Columbia Care and Cannabist dispensary network in markets such as Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia over the next few months.
“Because of Mike Tyson’s passion for cannabis, and the insight he brought to this brand through his own positive outcomes, we knew we needed to bring this product line, which has such a broad appeal, to market as quickly as possible. We’re thrilled to be able to ramp up our partnership when we did,” said Jesse Channon, Columbia Care’s Chief Growth Officer. “It is also perfectly fitting that we are launching in Colorado, one of our largest markets, and look forward to leveraging our experience and scale to bring it to fruition across the country.”

New Tyson 2.0 products, including 3.5-gram flower jars and pre-rolls, will be available for purchase at TGS in the coming months.
