Offspring of Philadelphia musicians, and born in the mountains of Gunnison, Colorado, Lauren oscillated between both places, going on to receiving a B.S. in Graphic Design in Philadelphia in 2012. She worked some magazine and print gigs. Predictably, she fulfilled the quintessential artist paradigm by giving up on her work and farting around in a multitude of bizarre fields. Lauren is a medical marijuana patient, who has held cards in Colorado, Washington State, and the District of Columbia. Her positive experience in managing her own chronic health conditions with cannabis, in addition to seeing the hope marijuana provides to recovering opiate users, have been driving forces in her attempting to launch a career working with cannabis. As of this writing, Lauren’s tunes-of-choice are King Crimson’s Discipline (1980).

Born in the summer of 1995 at GW Hospital and raised in Prince George’s County Maryland, Sunny has always been an advocate for being your authentic self no matter what, and always strive to what makes one happy. She enjoys traveling to see her favorite heavy metal bands, dancing, watching horror films, reading horror fiction, and of course, smoking and sharing good green marijuana. She came to Capitol Hemp in December of 2017 with a love of cannabis seeking a supportive, positive and culturally aware work environment. “I am beyond grateful to be a part of such an out-of-this-world team and I’m ready for whatever the future holds for me here at Capitol Hemp.”
