New Partnership between Jesse Ventura and Retro Bakery Brings Cannabis Legalization Efforts to the Forefront of the Industry

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

Jesse Ventura, the former Governor of Minnesota, has entered the cannabis industry by partnering with Retro Bakery, 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 and noted the historical significance of being the first U.S. Governor to officially put his name on a cannabis brand.

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

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. 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.
