Meet Mike Tyson at Zen Leaf Dispensaries

By Brittiany Ralls August 25, 2022
Mike Tyson Event

Mike Tyson events are one-of-a-kind experience that many fans remember forever, and we don't just mean when Iron Mike hits the ring. As a cannabis company owner since 2016 and a longtime cannabis user, the Heavyweight Champ is becoming quite the heavyweight in the cannabis industry. With Tyson 2.0 cannabis in New Jersey and Illinois, it was only fitting to have the champion himself visit Zen Leaf Dispensaries to see his namesake products on shelves.

Mike Tyson at Zen Leaf Prospect Heights

Mike Tyson brings an energy that can’t be measured. It’s a party when he walks into the room, there’s no other way to describe it – and June 24th was a VIP party that Zen Leaf Prospect Heights was honored to host. Visitors to Zen Leaf Prospect Heights were privy to a meet-and-greet session with Mike, including getting a photo with the living legend.

We are now convinced that only Mike Tyson can make a quick photograph fun – one pose wasn’t enough, and no pose was too much. From boxing stances, bear hugs and head locks to fake ear nibbles, Mike was the truest sport and encourager of them all.

Mike’s love for his fans is genuine, and palpable. His friendly demeanor instantly put anyone who walked up at ease. A quick conversation wasn’t enough – more often than not, Mike pulled visitors back for a few more words.

Here’s what Mike’s fans had to say about the experience:

This is unreal.

You’re the greatest fighter in the world. In the WORLD, bro. I saw you knock a man out CLEAN with one punch.

I’m excited to see Mike in person – it feels fake. It doesn’t feel real.

I love Zen Leaf and Mike Tyson!

This dude’s a legend. Everyone looks up to him, he’s in town, and there’s no way I’m missing it. Shoutout to Zen Leaf!

– Ivan Medina

I’m gonna pass out. I’m so hyped. The hype is amazing! LFG!

– AJ Brander

Everyone has been really excited, the entire Zen Leaf family – staff and visitors. The energy today has been incredibly upbeat, from the moment people started lining up at 2 PM till long after Mike Left the building. We can’t believe that our small town of Prospect Heights was able to receive a worldwide name like Mike Tyson, and at our dispensary no less. Today was remarkable, thank you, Mike – we love you!

– Brittney Youkhana, Zen Leaf Prospect Heights General Manager

Take a peek at some of the fun, from ear-biting to group photos:
