"We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month," Britton said.

"Ain't that crazy?" Tyson asked. "We take it for granted."

Rapper Jim Jones, who was a guest on the episode, was surprised.

"That's a lot of weed," Jones said. "That's nonstop, every second weed right there."

Tyson added that $400,000 to $500,000 a month goes toward his cannabis business, Tyson Ranch, which includes his recently announced CBD-enhanced drink line called DWiink. He and Britton are also in the process of building a 420-acre cannabis-friendly resort and wellness center in Desert Hot Springs, California.
