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

Jesse Ventura, the former governor of Minnesota, has recently announced his entry into the cannabis industry by partnering with a hemp company in Columbia Heights to produce Ventura-branded lines of edibles. In his announcement, Ventura expressed his excitement about being able to share 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.” In an interview with Tyrel Ventura, Jesse’s son, it was revealed that Retro Bakery will use Jesse’s name and intellectual property to create different product lines in the future. According to Tyrel, Retro Bakery is a Black-owned small business located near where Jesse raised his family and he carefully considered various cannabis companies before selecting this one.

As part of the deal, 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 has been a vocal advocate for marijuana legalization for many years and testified in support of it at the State Capitol. He shared his personal experience of how the drug helped alleviate his wife’s seizures, a decade ago. 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.
