Celebrity cannabis brands have become a thing of todays age. With names such as Snoop Dogg, Sublime, and Jim Belushi entering the cannabis space, it isn’t out of the ordinary to see another big celebrity name back a marijuana business. While Mike Tyson has already entered the cannabis space with his Tyson 2.0 brand, it was completely out of left field when we found out that Iron Mike is actually opening a coffeeshop in Amsterdam.
Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0 Is Coming Soon To Amsterdam
While, we are not entirely sure the details behind the acquisition, we can lay out some facts that have led to this major change that sees Tyson 2.0 coming to Amsterdam.
First off, yes, we can confirm that Mike Tyson is bringing his Tyson 2.0 brand to Amsterdam, in the form of a coffeeshop.
Last March, Iron Mike’s Tyson 2.0 brand announced collaborations with major cannabis industry brands, including Grenco Science (GPen & Stundenglass), CLICK, and Amsterdam founded business, Futurola. Could this strategic partnership with Futurola be part of why Tyson 2.0 is opening a coffeeshop in Amsterdam?
Last year, Coffeeshop Softland on Spuistraat closed its doors, which included a space themed cannabis consumption lounge. Soon after, Green House Effect took over the establishment, offering take-away only sales.
More recently, Green House Effect’s grab-and-go coffeeshop location on Spuistraat also closed the doors.
Earlier this week, a member of the facebook group, Amsterdam A STONERS VIEW, shared the following photo to the group.
This photo clearly shows Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0 branding over top of what used to be Coffeeshop Green House Effect’s take away location at 222 Spuistraat.
Currently, the coffeeshop is not yet open, and is undergoing renovations, and just 1 day after this image was shared on social media, the sign was already taken down.
While we have verified that this information is correct, Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0 will soon open in Amsterdam, we cannot confirm when it will open.
As soon as we have more details about Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0, we will let you know!
