Global Vision Biotechnologies would like to wish Mike Tyson and his team every success with their new 407-acre marijuana-themed holiday resort in California which they will be calling “the Lollapalooza of marijuana”.

The ring legend, 52, started his own company called Tyson Holistic Holdings which Global Vision Biotechnologies were responsible for much of the research and development involving the development of their hemp-infused product range earlier this year.

Iron Mike is now taking advantage of the state's legalization of recreational marijuana and has also started to run the Tyson Cultivation School which has been formed to help teach farmers how to grow and develop their strains.

But now the former ‘Baddest man on the planet’ plans to open his very own 407-acre weed holiday resort that will have a music festival and a specially designed ‘lazy river’ for his guests to relax on.

“I thought about how much good I could do by helping people with marijuana,” Tyson said.

Tyson and his business partner, Rob Hickman, refer to the new holiday resort as “the Lollapalooza of marijuana.”

The resort aims to help people understand the health benefits of marijuana, enjoy the drug on site and listen to live music.

Tyson told marijuana Tech Today: “I thought about how much good I could do by helping people with marijuana. It was a no-brainer. I've been fighting for over 20 years, and my body has a lot of wear and tear.”

"I had two surgeries and I used marijuana to calm my nerves, and it would take the pain away. But before, they had me on those opiates, and those opiates had me all screwed up,” Tyson added.

Tyson’s business partner Rob Hickman said: “He's building a holistic center for health and wellness.”

"There will be testing in the university. It's going to be about educating people on the healing benefits, how to grow, and how to be in proper business," Hickman added.

“Our involvement with the Tyson Ranch earlier this year provided us with a great opportunity to apply our research and technology to their holistic products. Mike and Rob have developed and created a truly unique understanding of the marijuana market and we are pleased to have leveraged our skill sets with theirs,” said Michael Lorthe, Ph.D., Head of Product Development with Global Vision Biotechnologies.

“We wish them every success with their latest project and look forward to extending our services further to them over the coming months,” Lorthe added.
