Tyson x Royal Queen Seeds: A colossal collaboration

Tyson X Royal Queen Seeds: A Colossal Collaboration

The matchup between celebrity endorsement and product is a story as old as time. Who doesn't want to use the same items as their heroes? However, more often than not, these are just cheap "cash-grabs" that result in a low-quality product and have nothing to do with an actual celebrity themselves. Fortunately, the story of Royal Queen Seeds' collaboration with Mike Tyson is here to buck the trend and prove that some partnerships can go the distance.

Outside of the boxing ring, Mike Tyson has long been known for his association with the cannabis industry, and in his own words, states: "Cannabis has always played an important role in my life. Cannabis has changed me for the good, both mentally and physically, and I want to share that gift with others." With that in mind, his passion became a reality with his cannabis company, Tyson 2.0—combining innovation with top-shelf products through purity and precision. This makes Tyson 2.0 the perfect sparring partner for Royal Queen Seeds, and the results speak for themselves.

Tyson 2.0 has seen plenty of success with their cannabis products but has never released seeds for the home market. As arguably the most significant collaboration in the cannabis world to date, trust us when we say there is plenty of love about this collection, and we'll get into it very shortly.

Mike Tyson: The man behind the main event

Boxing fans are no strangers to the sporting prowess of Mike Tyson.

However, with a public persona built around aggression, intimidation, and a focus on victory, fans never got to see that there's more to Iron Mike than meets the eye.

With a life-long love for cannabis, he turned his passion into business with the creation of the Tyson 2.0 brand and has delivered haymaker after haymaker of high-quality cannabis products. Now, this love for weed has turned into something even greater thanks to the power of partnership.
