Listing Details

Based in Ventura County, California, Ventura Seed Company is the Golden State’s first licensed USDA-certified hemp supplier. It operates across all aspects of the burgeoning CBD sector, from seed to oil, and it is committed to organic growing practices and sustainable methods every step of the way.

Company Information

Riki Trowe and Akasha Ellis are the founding members of Ventura Seed Company and currently serve as the President and Farm/Operations Lead, respectively. They are joined by Al Ellis, who serves as one of the company’s advisors and is a keen advocate for medicinal CBD.

Al used CBD to change his life and transform his health and his transformation helped to convince Akasha, his son, that this was the industry for him. Co-founder Trowe also had some personal experience with this miraculous substance, after using it to nurse his son back to health after he was seriously injured.

These three work closely with a small and growing team of experts and advisors, including Vanessa Ramirez, Dave DiNapoli, Craig Rosas, Adam Crowe, Adriana Ruiz, and Pablo Osario.

Hemp Varietals

The Ventura Seed catalog lists feminized hemp seeds and feminized hemp starts, with seeds available for between $1 and $1.50 and starts available for $3. Varietals include:

  • Grape Soda: Finished in mid to late September, this varietal offers high mildew resistance and produces very high CBD with low THC. The flowers are dense and it’s one of the brand’s best all-rounders.
  • Cherry Soda: High CBD, very good mildew resistance, dense flowers, and a late September finish.
  • Le Crème CBG: Produces very little odor and is a CBGa dominant, heavy-yielding plant with dense flowers.
  • Merlot: The Merlot varietal is said to mimic the high yields of Cherry Wine combined with the vigor of the famous Berry Blossom.
  • First Frost: Strong resistance to mildew, insects, and frost; high yields and very high terpenes.
  • Riki’s Auto Soda: A day-neutral varietal with a 100-day finish. Great mildew resistance, high CBD, and very few root and stem problems.
