'It changed his life. He's the perfect person,' Tyson's business partner Rob Hickman said on their partnership in an interview with GQ.

In October the company had a full-fledged map plan for the elaborate ranch, however it's not clear just how much progress has been made.

Tyson says the vision is to educate and engage the public in the healing properties of cannabis and CBD.

Attendants will be allowed to smoke anywhere in the park, except for areas where liquor is sold. Weed will not be grown there, only sold, as Tyson partners with big marijuana retail companies.

Despite becoming the head of a weed empire, Tyson doesn't actually grow or produce any of the marijuana himself.

Instead it's all sourced and inspected to reach his high standards and is given Tyson's seal of dank approval. His strains must be cultivated indoors, harvested based on maturity, cured over 30 days to ensure natural flavornoids, naturally derived, hand trimmed, pesticide-free and lab tested, according to the Tyson Holistic website.
