Lauren Wilson is a writer with a curious mind. With an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and a love of research, she has built her career on tumbling down cultural rabbit holes. Her work has focused on digesting big topics and distilling them down into fun and approachable formats, whether they be freelance articles or fully-realized books.
Lauren studied marketing at McGill University and worked in the environmental non-profit sphere before switching gears and attending George Brown Chef School. She has since worked in various capacities in the food and hospitality industry, and began her writing career covering the restaurant and food culture scene in Toronto for BlogTO.
In the decade since Lauren began writing about food, she has dovetailed into topics she is equally passionate about and her most recent writing has focused on advocating for the medical and personal use of hemp and cannabis for health and wellness.
She is the author of five books, including the best-sellers The Art of Eating Through the Zombie Apocalypse: A Cookbook and Culinary Survival Guide, The Walking Dead: The Official Cookbook and Survival Guide, and Healing with CBD: How Cannabidiol Can Transform Your Health Without the High. Most recently Lauren wrote two books for Snoop Dogg’s cannabis media outlet Merry Jane: The CBD Solution: Wellness (coming September 22, 2020) and The CBD Solution: Home (coming Spring 2021).
Lauren lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her mischievous cat Sheldon.
