Cultivating the spirit of California.
Santa Cruz-based Golden Seed focuses on the cultivation, manufacturing and distribution of high-quality cannabis grown in California. Deeply rooted in California lifestyle culture, Golden Seed aims to deliver quality products to a discerning clientele and to establish leadership in one of the world’s fastest-growing cannabis markets. Our team includes a rock-star cannabis cultivator, a renowned soil scientist, a well-known local political figure, and members of one of the leading real estate development groups in California. They have a proven record of business acumen and financial success, as well as the connectivity, flexibility, and nimbleness needed to take advantage of the fast-evolving new cannabis marketplace in California.
Life is Better on the Farm
Our cannabis cultivation takes place on more than 20 acres of nursery land tucked into the hills of Monterey Bay in Santa Cruz County.
Golden Seed’s farm is a model for the cannabis industry of responsible, clean organic growing, harvesting, and soil-building land stewardship that together result in what we believe are the highest quality cannabis products now being sold.
We source and nurture strains with the very best terpene and flavonoid content for flavor and potency, as chosen and helped along by our lead cultivator. We use only the freshest form of cannabis oil extractions, a CO2 super critical process on-site steps away from the living plants to ensure crisp, untouched and most importantly unprocessed cannabinoids.
Shaped in nature not a warehouse.

Meet JR - Our COO & cannabis cultivator.
You will find no one more passionate about organics than JR.
A second-generation grower from Northern California, JR Richardson is well known throughout the cannabis community. He grew up immersed in a culture of complete organic self-sufficiency, where people lived off the grid and grew their own food and cannabis in harmony with the environment. He believes that what you put in your body should be clean, real, and nurturing, supporting your health as an extension of nature.
We create meaningful and soulful blends to maximize flavor, potency, and treatment profiles—master crafted THC, CBD, and terpenes you just cannot get any other way.
Our small-batch signature products are niche blends that complement our staple strains. Golden Seed also feels so good because it is rich in entourage effects. The crystals dusting most cannabis buds contain compounds known as terpenoids and cannabinoids. They have synergistic effects—working together in ways we believe THC or CBD alone cannot.
Because Golden Seed is grown organically in sunlight and rich soil, with nothing getting in the way of optimal effectiveness, it produces an entourage effect like no other.
Our first product to market.
1st place in the preroll category at The high times cannabis cup - THE WORLD’S LEADING MARIJUANA TRADE SHOW.
Our first product line to market was a success. Budtenders raved about it, users loved it, and it won the Best Pre-Roll Award from High Times at the Nor-Cal Cannabis Cup in May, 2019.
We are currently carried by three large distributors with product placement throughout the state. In addition to pre-rolls and bulk flower, we have expanded our product offerings to include 1/8th jars and vape cartridges.
It all starts with the soil.
Our soil is alive—it ain’t just dirt. It gives us the ability to nourish our plants from seed to bloom, monitor their shifting needs, and nurture a happy crop.
Living Soil fosters a full and diverse spectrum of microbes, nutrients, and organic matter that turn into soil to produce a nourishing environment for our plants to thrive. We add the latest concepts in soil regeneration such as cultivating indigenous beneficial microbes from our local forest to add to our regionally-sourced organic agricultural waste. We do this using standards from the National Organic Program to create thermal aerobic compost teeming with all spectrums of the soil food web. This creates what we believe to be the highest quality of organic matter that we use as a super food for our worms. Our worms eat this food and create worm castings (also known as vermicompost) that are rich with enzymes, bacteria, Protozoa and fungi. This house-made vermicompost is the source of our living soil and is socially and ecologically responsible plant food that completes our cycle of “waste to gold” with a balanced full spectrum of living soil biology. This is how we cultivate what we believe to be the healthiest cannabis plants and highest quality of flavorful flower for you to enjoy.

100% Organic and natural.
GOLDEN SEED’S FARM IS 100% ORGANIC AND NATURAL. WE START WITH FORAGING FOR LOCAL FLORA, MICRO-FAUNA, MUSHROOMS AND BIOLOGY TO FEED THE WORMS ON OUR FARM. THROUGH THE DIGESTION AND PROCESSING OF THIS BIOLOGY, THE WORMS CREATE A VERMICOMPOST—THE ESSENTIAL SOIL AMENDMENT FOR OUR PLANTS.
NO CONVENTIONAL FERTILIZERS, PESTICIDES OR HERBICIDES ARE EVER ALLOWED ON OR NEAR OUR FARM.
WHEN PLANTS ARE HARVESTED AND PRODUCT SOLD, WE SEND THE BALANCE OF THE PLANT BACK TO COMPOST, AND THE CYCLE BEGINS ANEW.
An Emerging Market
01. Research & Development
Unlike most growers who are content to buy clones from a nursery and plant whatever is available, we are constantly conducting pheno hunts and cross-breeding and back-breeding dozens of genetic strains to grow plants that are disease resistant, grow fast, yield the most, and look, smell and taste better.
02. The Legal Marketplace
The legal cannabis industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States. The total cannabis marketplace in the United States was $4.7 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow to more than $13.3 billion by 2020. One study noted that California alone could comprise 25% of the expected $25 billion of national cannabis sales by 2025.
03. Acceptance of Cannabis
93% of Americans support medical marijuana. Recreational cannabis has been legalized in 11 states and the District of Columbia, consisting of nearly 25% of the U.S. population. Medical cannabis is legal in 33 states, meaning a combined, 216,000,000 Americans (66.15%) now live in jurisdictions where cannabis is legal in some form.
