Jesse Ventura, Former Governor, Ventures into Cannabis Industry with New Line of Edibles

Recently, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura announced his partnership with a hemp company in Columbia Heights to produce Ventura-branded lines of edibles. In his announcement, Ventura expressed his excitement about sharing products from a plant that has had a positive impact on his life. He also noted the historical significance of being the first U.S. Governor to officially put his name on a cannabis brand.

Ventura’s partnership with Retro Bakery, a cannabis edibles company, will be known as “Jesse Ventura Farms.” The Black-owned small business is located near where he raised his family and was carefully chosen by Ventura after considering various cannabis companies. His son, Tyrel Ventura, explained that Retro Bakery will use Ventura’s name and intellectual property to create different product lines in the future.

A portion of the proceeds from certain products under the Jesse Ventura Farms brand will be donated to charities focused on environmental cleanup, veterans, and individuals impacted by the war on drugs. Jesse Ventura has been a vocal advocate for marijuana legalization for many years and testified in support of it at the State Capitol. Last year, when Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz signed a bill legalizing recreational marijuana, Ventura and his wife stood with him in support of the legislation.
