Mike Dirnt finds new light in cannabis venture Goldenseed
Mike Dirnt is best known for his role as the bassist of legendary punk act Green Day , but his days are about to get a whole lot more green with his new venture into the cannabis industry.
Dirnt’s role as an investor, adviser and brand ambassador for California cannabis farm Goldenseed stems from a dark time in his wife, Brittney’s, life, but their involvement sheds light on the positives of not only the company but the plant’s effectiveness as a medicinal option for cancer patients.

“I got involved with Goldenseed on an invitation to look at the farm with a friend of mine, and after having made a few trips to check out their beautiful locations, I asked my wife if she was OK with us investing,” Dirnt begins. “She was absolutely all for it because cannabis was a tremendous help during her chemotherapy treatments when she was battling breast cancer. To this day, it helps with her body aches and pains and the residual effects of a lot of drugs that went into her system.”
Dirnt’s journey into the cannabis world is a lengthy one that starts with his family and the differences he noticed between their personalities while consuming alcohol as opposed to smoking cannabis.
“Both of my parents and their friends smoked pot,” he says. “When they were drunk, they fought, but when they [smoked] cannabis, they laughed. That much was clear.”
More recently, though, Brittney Dirnt’s battle with breast cancer gave him a firsthand look at how cannabis can be used medicinally. Instead of using pharmaceutical medicines that introduce separate health issues, Brittney looked to cannabis. The bassist feels Goldenseed has cultivation processes worthy of assisting those with health conditions.
“I think people find themselves in a health situation where they’re looking for something, and they haven’t found what they need from big pharma or conventional medicines that are filled with bad side effects,” he opines. “Also, I believe if people are looking to cannabis as organic medicine, it should be grown the way nature intended.

“The way Goldenseed uses natural and sustainable farming practices speaks volumes about who we are as a company and the quality of what’s coming out,” he continues. “We didn’t win the High Times Northern California Preroll Cannabis Cup for nothing. The proof is in the plants, and the plants have spoken.”
The future of cannabis certainly has a lot of promise, with more than half of the states in the U.S. legalizing medicinal use of cannabis and a growing number achieving recreational legalization. Yet, there are still several issues to tackle. Dirnt says having access to cannabis remains a problem he wants to see improved.
“I’d like to see the cannabis industry move toward more accessibility,” he says. “I’d like to see it go to a place where the world can once again realize the many uses and full potential of the cannabis plant.”

Goldenseed, however, is setting itself apart from other cannabis farms by offering the public the opportunity to invest in their future. The company is the first private U.S. cannabis cultivator qualified by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to sell stock to the general public and are offering entry at a low rate to prevent any gatekeeping of the industry. When thinking of why this is important, Dirnt recalls his youth and how an opportunity like this could have shaped him.
“I think if the 21-year-old Mike Dirnt—cooking at a seafood restaurant [and] living check to check—had the ability to invest $100 bucks in something and own something I believed in available to me, that would have been incredible,” he explains. “And now, people can do that. We had an investor the other day from Kenya. He can invest right alongside some kid in Iowa working at McDonald’s. It’s really cool. It’s the idea that we are all stronger together.”

Dirnt has been contributing to Goldenseed since 2018. People interested in investing can join the action for just $100, and the company is currently selling up to $10 million of common stock at $10 per share.
“We’re thrilled that Mike is part of the Goldenseed community. It’s an exciting time for us and the industry overall,” Scott Goldie, CEO and founder of Goldenseed, says. “Our brand has developed a strong affinity among consumers while also assembling a diverse group of advisers over the last few years. Mike’s creative vision has already proven invaluable to our brand, and we look forward to continuing this work as we celebrate his role as a key member of our family.”

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.
Green Day’s Mike Dirnt: Why I Invested In Goldenseed
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.
