Earlier this year, TYSON 2.0 expanded its celebrity house of brands strategy with the acquisition of Ric Flair Drip, Inc. This strategic partnership enabled TYSON 2.0 to broaden its product suite with the ability to commercialize pro-wrestler Ric Flair's intellectual property within the cannabis space. With wide-consumer accessibility at the core of TYSON 2.0, the Ric Flair Drip Cannabis line offers premium cannabis products at not so premium prices and will include flower, vape cartridges, edibles, and pre-rolls, all with a Ric Flair vibe.

Now, more people can get into the Ric Flair state of mind– limousine riding, jet-flying, good vibes only," said Ric Flair, Founder, Ric Flair Drip, Inc. "I discovered the benefits of cannabis later in life and was overwhelmed by how much it has helped elevate the mind and heal the body. Alongside TYSON 2.0, I am committed to sharing these amazing benefits with as many consumers as possible."

Ric Flair Drip Cannabis is set to launch across Verano's network, with products initially planned to be available in 11 states starting with Arizona, Nevada and Illinois, followed by phased launches across Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. To bring wrestling fans a nostalgic joy in the style of collectible trading cards, cannabis consumers and Ric Flair fans can purchase products, including flower jars, designed with Ric's signature sayings, including "The Nature Boy," and "Champion Cannabis" and "Wrestling All-Star." Vape cartridges named after Ric Flair's alter ego Nature Boy® and inspired by action figures from the 80s will also be available. Additionally, the Ric Flair line will bring a new edible to market, known as "WOOOOO Chews'' coined after Ric's famous catchphrase, "WOOOOO!". 1g pre-rolls in hybrid, sativa and indica strains will also be available, along with 1g and .9g vapes, 3.5g flower jars in hybrid, sativa and indica strains.

"Verano is thrilled to partner with Tyson 2.0 to launch the Ric Flair Drip Cannabis line," said George Archos, Verano Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "TYSON 2.0 products have gained nationwide appeal thanks to their premium product quality and strong reputation, driven by industry icons and cannabis advocates like Ric Flair, who are reducing the stigma around cannabis use and raising awareness about its countless benefits. We are excited to introduce Ric Flair Drip products to our vast network, which will complement our existing suite of premium cannabis offerings, and deliver Ric Flair's trademark energy to fans and cannabis consumers across the nation."

"The launch of Ric Flair Drip Cannabis products marks a major milestone for TYSON 2.0 as we continue to scale our house of brands strategy with timeless icons like Ric Flair. Through our partnership with Verano, cannabis enthusiasts and Ric Flair fans across the nation will have access to a range of premium products at multiple price points that evoke the spirit and energy that Ric is known for. It's been an honor to work with the legend himself, who is dedicated to making waves in the cannabis space and fully committed to serving his fans the highest quality products on the market," said Chad Bronstein, Co-Founder, President & Chairman of TYSON 2.0.

Hulk Hogan Launching Cannabis And Mushrooms Brand, Says CBD Makes Him Feel 25 Again - 25th May 2023


Hulk Hogan is following Ric Flair and Mike Tyson into the cannabis business, brother.

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was a recent guest on TMZ Sports to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When talking about all of the injuries he’s been through in his career, Hogan revealed that CBD and THC have him feeling better than he’s felt in a very long time.

“I always joke about I didn’t get the memo that this stuff was ‘fake’ and after the 10 back surgery and two knees and two hips, it’s just a situation of you do get hurt out there all the time,” Hulk Hogan said. “I feel better than I’ve ever felt at 69 years old, I feel like I’m 25 again.”

Hogan said moving away from pain pills to the CBD world has really helped improve his overall health.

“It definitely helped me because as I said the slow walk back from the prescription drugs ended with me downing the Tylenol and the Advil and Aleve’s and finally even that wasn’t working for me,” Hulk Hogan said. “As I moved away from that and got into the CBD world, it really changed the game from my sleep to the inflammation, the way my wrists and my joints hurt, across the board, it helped me with my health.”

Hogan is such a believer in the power of CBD and THC that he’s partnering up with Carma HoldCo to create his own cannabis line, following in the footsteps of Mike Tyson and Ric Flair.

“When I saw what Ric and Mike were doing, I instantly wanted to get on the team because you use CBD for energy, for sleep, for fitness — it just made sense,” Hulk Hogan said. “It’s a logical extension of where I already was but this is the safe way to approach things instead of that wild card way of doctor’s prescription stuff. It just didn’t make sense anymore.”

Tyson 2.0 Chairman Chad Bronstein and Ric Flair spoke with WrestleZone about the latter’s partnership with Mike Tyson.

“For me personally, this will be the biggest venture I’ve ever been in. This will be the biggest venture, wrestling, bar none. This opportunity to work with Chad and Mike is the biggest opportunity I’ve ever had in my life, and I’m more excited about that than I have been a lot of things,” Flair said. “To be working with this Ric Flair Drip and with Chad and Mike, it’s the most exciting part of my life right now. That’s just it, it’s the biggest thing I’ve ever done. I can say that for myself personally.”

Flair talked about how grueling his travel schedule used to be and now sees the benefits of cannabis.

“I can tell you right now that two of the biggest problems, and I’m not just gonna put it in the wrestling business, but in sports, is getting up and getting down. A lot of guys need a lift in the morning, whether it be an energy drink or something, like coffee. But when you run as hard as we do and it’s four o’clock in the morning, [cannabis is] much, much, much safer [than using other medications like Ambien as a sleep aid], especially on the international tours where you’re gonna get off the plane and go to work that night,” Flair explained.


Hulk Hogan, 69, credits CBD with remarkable transformation as he launches cannabis wellness brand: ‘I feel like I’m 25 again’ - 24th May 2023


Hulk Hogan is feeling ‘better than ever’ after dealing with decades of wrestling related injuries.

The WWE Hall of Famer, who turns 70 in August, has launched new health and wellness brand with cannabis company Carma HoldCo and credited CBD and THC with helping him deal with his various issues.

Now, he’s announced plans for a product line including CBD, THC and ‘functional mushrooms’.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, he said: ‘I always joke about I didn’t get the memo that this stuff was “fake” and after the 10 back surgery and two knees and two hips, it’s just a situation of you do get hurt out there all the time.

‘I feel better than I’ve ever felt at 69 years old, I feel like I’m 25 again.’

The former world champion has been open about the pain he suffers every day after decades in the wrestling business, and he recently changed his lifestyle by moving away from painkillers.

‘It definitely helped me because as I said the slow walk back from the prescription drugs ended with me downing the Tylenol and the Advil and Aleve’s and finally even that wasn’t working for me,’ he added.

‘As I moved away from that and got into the CBD world, it really changed the game from my sleep to the inflammation, the way my wrists and my joints hurt, across the board, it helped me with my health.’

His new brand will see him under the same umbrella as Mike Tyson and Ric Flair, who have already launched their own cannabis ranges.

‘When I saw what Ric and Mike were doing, I instantly wanted to get on the team because you use CBD for energy, for sleep, for fitness – it just made sense,’ he claimed.

Although they are available more widely in the US, many products may be illegal in the UK and ‘potentially dangerous’, according to the NHS.

The organisation warns: ‘Some products that might claim to be medical cannabis, such as CBD oil or hemp oil, are available to buy legally as food supplements from health stores. But there’s no guarantee these are of good quality or provide any health benefits.’

And while the NHS acknowledges ‘there is some evidence’ of medical cannabis helping ‘certain types of pain’, they don’t consider this ‘strong enough to recommend’.

They added: ‘The risks of using cannabis products containing THC (the chemical that gets you high) are not currently clear. That’s why clinical trials are needed before they can be used. Products that only contain CBD, such as Epidyolex, do not carry these unknown risks linked with THC.’




Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. As of 2019, clinical research on cannabidiol included studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain, but there is insufficient, high-quality evidence that it is effective for these conditions.

Cannabidiol can be taken into the body in multiple ways, including by inhalation of cannabis smoke or vapor, as an aerosol spray into the cheek, and by mouth. It may be supplied as CBD oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient (no included tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] or terpenes), a full-plant CBD-dominant hemp extract oil, capsules, dried cannabis, or as a prescription liquid solution. CBD does not have the same psychoactivity as THC, and may change the effects of THC on the body if both are present. As of 2018, the mechanism of action for its putative biological effects has not been determined.

In the United States, the cannabidiol drug Epidiolex was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018 for the treatment of two epilepsy disorders. Since cannabis is a Schedule I controlled substance in the United States, other CBD formulations remain illegal to prescribe for medical use or to use as an ingredient in foods or dietary supplements.
