Jesse Ventura: Governor Turned Cannabis Brand Ambassador with Retro Bakery

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

Jesse Ventura, the former Governor of Minnesota, has announced his entry into the cannabis industry. He has partnered with a Columbia Heights hemp company to create Ventura-branded lines of edibles. Ventura expressed his excitement about being the first U.S. Governor to officially put his name on a cannabis brand in a statement, emphasizing the significance of this achievement.

Ventura has collaborated with Retro Bakery, a Black-owned small business near where he raised his family, to produce the products bearing his name. After meeting with numerous cannabis companies, Ventura chose Retro Bakery for its commitment to quality and its alignment with his values.

Tyrel Ventura, Jesse’s son, revealed that all products will be developed by Retro Bakery using Jesse’s name and intellectual property for various product lines in the future. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from specific products will be donated to charities supporting environmental cleanup, veterans, and individuals affected by the war on drugs.

Jesse Ventura has been an advocate for marijuana legalization for many years and testified in favor of it at the State Capitol. He shared a personal story about how marijuana 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 were present at the signing ceremony, showing their support for the initiative.

The collaboration between Jesse Ventura and cannabis edibles company Retro Bakery will be named “Jesse Ventura Farms.” This partnership is expected to bring unique and high-quality products to market while also supporting important causes that align with Ventura’s values.
