MEGHAN Markle’s nephew has grown a new strain of ‘Markle Sparkle’ cannabis as he builds a drug empire based on her name, according to reports.
Cannabis farmer Tyler Dooley, 26, insists he created the strain to get ahead in the “very competitive businesses” of marijuana production.
Tyler’s dad Thomas Jr, is Meghan’s half-brother.
He previously told Sun Online that his multi-million dollar commercial drug operation in Oregon, will soon be going global and “most definitely the UK”.
In an apparent tribute to Meghan’s royal wedding, he created the variety with the tagline: “So strong it will blow your crown off”.
And after the latest royal arrival, Tyler created the strain of cannabis, ‘Archie Sparkie’, named after his second cousin, Meghan and Harry’s son.
Describing himself as the “black sheep of the family”, he told The Mail on Sunday, he’s worked his “a** off to make a living”.
Tyler added: “Markle Sparkle made headlines and made me a lot of money in a very competitive business.”
He has a new 1,000 acre ranch in Oregan, where his latest strain is growing.
At the same time, he is launching cannabis-derivative products across the UK in a £20million drug operation.
Speaking from his home in Medford, Oregon, Tyler told Sun Online: “The CBD industry is absolutely booming, it’s the hottest commodity in the world.
“I have amazing products to offer to the masses. CBD potency is way higher than anywhere else here, we can grow it better than anywhere in the world, Oregon just has the perfect climate. I’m not focusing on the weed, but CBD.
“What I’m developing right now is a superior line of CBD oil, which is different from anything else out there. CBD is a very beneficial product, I’ll be hitting the UK market, absolutely.”
He added: “We’ve got an operation that’s worth $3 to 5 million, this isn’t a small company,” he said.
“These products we’ve been developing over years. We’ll be doing everything in-house from taking it from the field and giving it direct to the consumer.

“In terms of products, we’re going to have around £20million worth out there, which you’ll be able to buy in the UK and around the world.
“Our CBD is going to be safe, clean and good quality.”
Last year, Tyler called on the UK to legalise cannabis after The Sun revealed Meghan had wanted to serve it at her first wedding.
Tyler says he is developing a “superior” range of CBD oils
