Meet Kylee and J.D. from WholesomeCo | Discover Marijuana

We begin the third season of Discover Marijuana with an introduction to this season’s guests, JD Lauritzen and Kylee Shumway of WholesomeCo, a Medical Cannabis pharmacy in Bountiful.

Lauritzen is WholesomeCo’s Head of Legal Compliance and Government Affairs. He’s also something of a local celebrity, known by the “Leafy Lawyer” moniker and for helping clients with cannabis-related charges. He’s been interested in cannabis since the beginning of his college career, when he wrote a paper arguing for the legalization and taxation of cannabis.

Shumway is the Pharmacist in Charge at WholesomeCo. Her interest in cannabis medicine also began in college, when an organic chemistry professor sometimes mentioned the compounds in marijuana.

JD and Kylee are some of our favorite people in the cannabis industry, and we’re excited to have them aboard for season three! Subscribe to our channel now, so you’ll be the first to see our weekly Discover Marijuana episodes as soon as they’re launched.

We have some exciting content about cannabis products, vaporizers, cannabis history and much more coming up in the weeks ahead. Thanks for joining us!
