Ever heard of Jesse Ventura? He originally gained fame through professional wrestling. He became the 38th Governor of Minnesota, his home state. He was also a Navy Seal at the tender age of 18. Now he has his sights on creating a cannabis brand.
While Governor of Minnesota, Ventura became an outspoken advocate of cannabis when his wife suddenly developed seizures forcing him to make difficult decisions. He had to break the law to travel to Colorado to obtain cannabis because the government-approved pharmaceuticals did not help her and she risked swallowing her tongue randomly numerous times every week. At that time, cannabis was completely illegal in Minnesota.
At 72 years old, Ventura also now uses cannabis to treat numbness in his feet, insomnia, and PTSD. It will be interesting to see what products he will produce to bear his name.
