Jesse Ventura Sparks Up the Cannabis Industry with New Brand

You read that right, folks – wrestling legend, actor, and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura is officially entering the cannabis game!

On Wednesday, Ventura made a huge announcement that he’s partnering with Columbia Heights-based Retro Bakery to launch “Jesse Ventura Farms” – his very own line of cannabis edibles.

In true Ventura fashion, The Body didn’t hold back in sharing his excitement:

“I can finally announce that today, Gov. Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura, is in the cannabis game. I can’t tell you how truly amazing this feels to legally share products from a plant that has had such an amazing impact on my life. Not to mention the historical significance of being the first U.S. Governor to officially put his name on a Cannabis brand.”

The Journey to Jesse Ventura Farms

This partnership has been years in the making. Ventura’s son Tyrel revealed that the former governor interviewed hundreds of cannabis companies before selecting Retro Bakery, a Black-owned small business just miles away from where he raised his family.

Tyrel also shared that part of the deal involves donating a percentage of certain product proceeds to charities supporting environmental cleanup, veterans, and those harmed by the disastrous war on drugs.

A Longtime Cannabis Advocate

Ventura’s foray into the legal cannabis market should come as no surprise to those familiar with his stance on the issue. He has been an outspoken proponent of marijuana legalization for decades.

Last year, Ventura testified at the Minnesota State Capitol about how cannabis helped stop his wife Terry’s seizures nearly 10 years ago. When the state finally legalized recreational marijuana, the Venturas were right there celebrating with Governor Tim Walz at the bill signing ceremony.

As Ventura proclaims on his website, this partnership with Retro Bakery marks “a monumental moment for cannabis legalization.” With Jesse Ventura Farms, he aims to offer top-quality cannabis products while fueling his passion for ending “this tragic and dangerous war on drugs.”

Celebrate 4/20 with The Body

To properly christen the launch of Jesse Ventura Farms, The Mind behind the Body is hosting an exclusive 4/20 meet and greet event in Minneapolis with his partners at Retro Bakery.

For package prices starting at $100, attendees can score:

  • A gift card to Retro Bakery to “fuel up” before/after
  • Exclusive Jesse Ventura Farms merchandise
  • And the chance to meet the legend himself (depending on package level)

As Ventura declares in his book The Marijuana Manifesto, “Our government won’t do the right thing and legalize marijuana unless we the people demand it.”

This 4/20 celebration is your chance to join The Body. Admission is free, but they recommend you pre-register. And if you want to meet the former governor, you’ll have to get a package. But you’d better move fast – Ventura warns that packages are already selling quickly!

Head over to the Retro Bakery website to secure your spot at this can’t-miss, cannabis-fueled event. After all, as Jesse reminds us, “Every month and every year that goes by, we find out more positive things about [cannabis].”

The era of Jesse Ventura Farms has finally arrived. Let’s celebrate accordingly!
