About Mike Tyson Strain
Mike Tyson OG is a strain with the sheer power to knock you out where you stand.. Like its namesake, boxing champion Mike Tyson.

Mike Tyson cannabis sets itself apart with solid, medium-sized flowers. These buds tend to cling together in an elongated, almost cylindrical formation and maintain a typically indica structure, with a dense core.

The first whiff of these sticky flowers reveals their predominantly dank scent, redolent of damp soil. Hanging out underneath is a slightly sweet, floral aroma. Meanwhile, grinding up the buds releases the rich smell of hash and spice, perhaps suggesting descent from Afghani.
