ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., June 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Tyson 2.0 (“The Company”), iconic boxer, entrepreneur and cannabis advocate Mike Tyson’s cannabis brand, has taken the nation by storm by becoming a consumer favorite in over 20 US states and Canada since its launch late last year.

Additional investors in the round include K2, Ambria Capital, Tress Capital, and Patrick Carroll.
Tyson 2.0 Co-founder, President and Chairman, Chad Bronstein said, “Mike Tyson and our team believed early on that building high-quality cannabis brands and products backed by A-list celebrities would be a winning combination. Our model has shown early validation with robust sales and expansion of the brand to more than 20 states including several of the world’s leading operators. The next step in our journey will require us to put more capital to work, and I couldn’t think of a better set of partners than the group of investors we have assembled, highlighted by Jason Wild and the team at JW Asset Management.”
The raised funds will be used to acquire more celebrity intellectual property, scale marketing efforts, accelerate distribution, and further invest in the development of Tyson 2.0’s house of brands strategy.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with and knowing Chad and Adam for many years. I am impressed with how quickly they have scaled the business becoming one of the leading national cannabis brands on the market today.

My friend, Alyssa and I decided to check out Dose in a Box, a smaller version of the trendy Coffee Dose located right smack in the middle of Irvine Corporate Park.
It hides right between two tall glass buildings which, once our eyes laid eyes upon the trailer, brightens the dull atmosphere that mutters business. If girls were to decorate a desert, it’d look like this: pastel pink trimmed with black and white stripes and is accompanied by a few very green cactuses. This place is also pet friendly, as I noticed a water bowl and multiple daybeds for your pups and pals (or other creatures) to rest upon while you enjoy your treat(s)!
It was difficult to choose from their menu of specialty drinks as there were so many options that sounded delightful. I ended up ordering Mary Matcha (tea) and she, The Beauty (coffee). Both were incredibly delicious and refreshing. Each weightlessly sweet, just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth but not too much to rot out! The lavender syrup was a nice touch to my Matcha as well as the rose to her coffee.
Coffee Dose/Dose in a Box used to offer the option of adding a few drops of the CBD “Anti-Bitch Serum” to their beverages, but they no longer do that –HOWEVER, I was able to buy the bottle at a reasonable price for its size; $64.65 with tax for 1oz of 500MG of CBD. The serum ingredients include MCT oil (coconut), hemp extract and terpenes. The oil is a touch on the heavy side and tastes of orange blossoms, no trace of the taste of coconut for you non-coconut fans!
When we added the serum to our drinks, the chemistry was wonderfully light and subtle. Interestingly, when I tried the “Anti-Bitch Serum” with my everyday coffee at home, the flavors did not blend. Although, I recommend taking a full dose or two by itself when you have a headache, a natural go-to remedy for everyday mundane pain!
As we continued to slurp our drinks, we decided to try the Shroom shots. I, the Inner Energy which has Cordyceps & Lions Mane and she the Golden Immunity which has Turkey Tail. The mix wasn’t terrible, One could say that we were drinking for our health, not for flavor.
Overall, I would certainly return as their drinks were quite delicious and fresh. But next time, I look forward to trying their snacks and meals!

Why Cannabis Companies Should Care About Their Online Accessibility
This article by Nathalie Bougenies focuses on how no sector is immune from ADA litigation, and that the recent cases involving New York based CBD retailers should sound alarm bells to other businesses in the industry, that they might be the next target for the aggressive drive-by-lawyers.
