Anyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected, can become a shareholder of Goldenseed, the first private U.S. cannabis and hemp cultivator, processor and brand to ever be qualified by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to sell stock to the general public.
The rules have changed. Medical cannabis is legal in 33 states. Recreational cannabis is legal in 11 states, and the District of Columbia. This means a combined 216,000,000 Americans (66.15%) now live in jurisdictions where cannabis is legal in some form.
Cannabis is going mainstream, and where funding a grow operation used to be a shadowy enterprise, it’s now open for investment by everyday people.
Golden Seed, Inc. d/b/a Goldenseed (www.OwnGoldenSeed.com) is your chance to legally invest at an early stage in a cannabis and hemp business, and be a part of this remarkable, new, and rapidly growing market.
“The way I look at the cannabis business today as an investment, is as if you were going into the wine industry in Napa in the early 70s, before it happened.”
-Scott Goldie, CEO
Goldenseed's Cannabis Cultivation Takes Place on 20 Acres in Santa Cruz County
Goldenseed’s farm is a model for the cannabis industry for responsible, clean, pesticide-free farming, based on natural principles. Our cannabis and hemp are shaped in nature, not a warehouse, and our harvesting and soil-building land stewardship results in what we believe are the highest quality cannabis products sold in the world.
Our Hemp Facility
Our 80,000 square foot clay controlled hemp processing facility allows us to not only process the hemp we grow, but also hemp from other farmers.
100% Naturally Grown
We use the latest concepts in soil regeneration—starting with foraging for local flora, micro-fauna, fungi, and other biology in agricultural waste—to feed the worms on our farm.
Through the digestion and processing of this biology, the worms create vermicompost, which is the essential soil amendment for our plants.
“No conventional fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are ever allowed on or near our farm.”
-Clayton Scicluna, Director of Regenerative Agriculture
When plants are harvested, and products are sold, we send the balance of the plant back to compost to restart the cycle.
This is how we nurture the fittest cannabis plants and biologically dense flowers with the highest flavor content. In the wine world, they call it “terroir”—the unique set of environmental factors that contribute to a crop’s phenotype. We believe our terroir cannot be duplicated, and plants are chosen and raised by our lead cultivator—a second generation farmer from legendary Humboldt County.
An Award-Winning Master-Crafted Product Line
Goldenseed grows clean California cannabis in the form of proprietary seed strains, smokable blends, and oil and terpene extractions.
Our first product to market was a success. Budtenders raved about it, users loved it, and it won the award for Best Pre-Roll Award at the Nor-Cal Cannabis Cup and best Pre-Roll at Hempcon in 2019.
The legal cannabis industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States. In 2016, the total U.S. cannabis marketplace was $4.7 billion, and it’s expected to grow to more than $13.3 billion by 2020. One recent study noted that California alone may comprise 25% of the expected $25 billion of national cannabis sales by 2025.
FOUR QUESTIONS INVESTORS ASK US:
1. WHO AM I GIVING MY MONEY TO?
When you invest in Goldenseed, your money will go to building our company that is run by an experienced management team with a successful real estate development background, a sales and marketing team who know how to get the word out and deal with the wholesale and retail marketplace and an agriculture team that cares about the products we create as much as they care about using sustainable farming practices, preserving the environment and growing healthy plants in healthy soil.
2. WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH MY MONEY?
Every dollar you invest helps us build our company with the goal to grow quickly—but responsibly—and one key differentiator with Goldenseed is Vertical Integration.
There are many cannabis companies, and most rely on other companies to handle certain aspects of their business. Vertical integration means we own, or control, almost all aspects of the supply chain. It allows us to control most of the process, reduce costs, and improve efficiencies.
At Goldenseed, we plan to maintain as much control as possible over everything, in both the cannabis and hemp portions of our company—including our soil, seeds, clones, cultivation, processing, and manufacturing. This allows us to control the quality and value of our products from seed to store, while keeping our costs lower than those normally faced by cannabis and hemp companies.
3. WHAT DO I GET FOR MY MONEY: REAL STOCK AND PERKS!
When you invest, you receive real stock in our company – one share of Class B Common Stock for every $10 you invest. But there’s more. We want to reward you for investing and joining the Goldenseed community by giving you “perks” based on how much you invest. Perks start at an invitation to our soon-to-be-famous annual shareholder event and at the highest end include incredible experiences like greenhouse dinners, awesome merchandise and even naming a Goldenseed product. Imagine seeing a product you named in dispensaries around California!
4. HOW DO I GET A RETURN ON MY INVESTMENT
Goldenseed is an early-stage company that plans to grow into the biggest and strongest company we can, to make your investment are valuable as possible. We want you to invest and come along for the ride with us, but if you are looking for a stock you can buy today and sell tomorrow or in the near future this investment is not for you.
There are three ways you could get a return on your investment in our future plans.
If you invest in Goldenseed, you should plan to hold on to your stock for some time, enjoy the perks and benefits of being an owner in the meantime, but look for your return on investment in the future.
