Who am I giving my money to?
The Goldenseed Team
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.

What are you doing with my money?
Building Our Company Together
Every dollar you invest helps us build our company with the goal to grow quickly—but responsibly.
At Goldenseed, we plan to maintain as much control as possible over everything 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 companies.
We are building a company together with you and are focused on responsibly running our farm as a business to eventually make a profit. While we are focused on profitable farming through bulk sales, we are also continuing to build our consumer brands with high-quality Goldenseed branded cannabis products in dispensaries all around California.
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 $12.50 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!
How do I get a return on my investment?
The Future of Goldenseed
Goldenseed is an early-stage company that plans to grow into the biggest and strongest company we can, to make your investment as 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:
- We have built Goldenseed to be an acquisition target and if the company grows and develops as we plan, we believe that someday we will get acquired in a transaction that we hope will give all shareholders a return on their investment.
- Another possibility is that we could hold an IPO some day, if market conditions are right and we feel that would be in the best interests of our company and our shareholders. If that happens, we would hope you could sell your stock at that time for a return on your investment.
- In the interim while we grow the company to get to one of those two stages, we expect to reinvest any profits into that growth. But, it is possible that when we become profitable, our board of directors could decide to pay shareholders a dividend, even though that is not in the immediate plans at this time.
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.
The importance of compliance
Why Does Goldenseed Need My Personal Information When I Invest?
We wish we didn’t have to ask for your private information, but being in the early days of the legal cannabis industry and breaking ground as the first U.S. private cannabis cultivator qualified by the SEC to sell stock to the general public comes with some legal responsibilities and requirements. As an investor, we hope you understand that following these rules is very important to all of us at Goldenseed to make sure we can grow into the company we all want to be, with you along for the ride, without any problems from governmental authorities. That’s the responsible thing to do to protect all of us, and you as an investor.
Here’s what we need from you to comply with the laws, in addition to the information you would have to give any online company you wanted to do business with:
- Your date of birth and social security number or other national ID number.
- Your income and net worth.
- Your driver’s license or other official government ID.

Goldenseed Files with SEC to Become First Private U.S. Cannabis Grower to Allow Early Stage Investment from General Public
SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, Calif.–( BUSINESS WIRE )–Goldenseed, a California lifestyle cannabis and hemp brand, whose first product line won the High Times’ Cannabis Cup for Best Pre-Roll in May 2019, today announced it filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to hold a stock offering. This offering will allow the general public to invest in Goldenseed at an early stage, which is typically only available to high net worth individuals and well-connected investors. Goldenseed expects to be qualified by the SEC to launch its offering online within the next 60-90 days. When it goes live, the general public will be given the opportunity to invest in Goldenseed for as little as $100.00. Goldenseed intends to use portions of the net proceeds from the stock offering toward capital improvements, debt reduction, marketing and general working capital.
“We’re excited to provide a chance to invest in the California cannabis industry and to become part of the Goldenseed community,” said Scott Goldie, chief executive officer of Goldenseed. “I see this as similar to entering the wine industry in Napa in the early ‘70s, before it boomed.”
Goldenseed recently launched as a cultivator, manufacturer, and distributer of high-quality cannabis and hemp naturally grown in renowned Santa Cruz County, California. Goldenseed delivers pure cannabis in the form of proprietary seed strains, smokable blends, and oil and terpene extractions to a discerning clientele. The brand focuses on:
- Sustainable Farming: Goldenseed’s Santa Cruz County farm is a model for the cannabis industry for clean growing, harvesting, and soil-building land stewardship with Envirocann certification. Goldenseed has also built a worm farm onsite with 16,000 pounds of red wiggler worms that create living soil, rich in microbial and fungal life that ultimately grows natural cannabis.
- Facilities: Goldenseed’s cannabis cultivation at the Santa Cruz farm can grow as large as 440,000 square feet, potentially becoming one of the larger growers of greenhouse cannabis in California. By year’s end, Goldenseed’s hemp cultivation alone will span 90 acres of Santa Cruz farmland with over two acres of seed production.
- Research and Development: Goldenseed looks to the future and constantly conducts pheno hunts, which are the cross-breeding and back-breeding of dozens of genetic strains to grow plants that resist disease, grow at the optimal speed, yield the most, and look, smell and taste better. This enables Goldenseed to extract the purest and most powerful terpenes from the plant, which are natural compounds that contribute to a plant’s taste and smell. Goldenseed also focuses on the latest research in CBD to THC ratios, to discover if there is any potential for health applications.
Goldenseed’s stock offering will be held under Regulation A, a law passed as part of the 2012 Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act that allows small companies to raise capital by selling stock online through equity crowdfunding. Before the JOBS Act, 80 years of securities law prevented the general public from investing in private companies, like Goldenseed, at an early stage in their development. This provided the early-stage investment opportunities to only wealthy, accredited investors and those with Silicon Valley or Wall Street connections. This process is being led by Goldenseed’s consultant, Kendall Almerico, a noted securities attorney and crowdfunding expert Forbes named one of the top Regulation A attorneys and JOBS Act experts in the country.
“It’s thrilling to offer customers of Goldenseed’s high-quality products, as well as everyday consumers and investors, a chance to invest in a private United States cannabis company,” Almerico said. “This kind of investment is helping to level the playing field and democratize the investment process.”
“In addition to their shares, our investors will receive exclusive and exciting perks. We’re looking forward to announcing them soon,” said Goldie. “Our goal is to have as many people as possible share in the ownership of our company and help grow the Goldenseed brand with us.”
Currently, there are more than 200 publicly traded stocks related to the cannabis industry. Most of them involve Canadian companies or U.S. companies that do not actually grow or distribute cannabis. Goldenseed’s team believes that, when qualified by the SEC, they’ll present the first opportunity for the average investor to own a share of a private U.S. cannabis cultivator – one with a mission to create a premium cannabis lifestyle brand built on a respect for nature.
