Megan Ward is the 30-year-old founder and CEO of Ergo Hemp Co., a health and wellness company established to provide the community with reputably sourced CBD products.
Ms. Ward grew up in the heart of the Long Island, New York Lyme belt. Her environmentally aware parents and grandparent taught her to conduct regular tick checks, often resulting in finding biting ticks on her body.
By the age of 8, she had suffered from classic Lyme disease symptoms including fatigue, brain fog, and joint pains that regularly disturbed her sleep. Her symptoms resulted in Ms. Ward “continuously seeing [her] pediatrician” who diagnosed her with “growing pains.”
Her “growing pains” followed her to college where a Lyme literate classmate recognized that she was suffering from Lyme disease. Ms. Ward then visited a doctor and tested positive for Lyme.
Following her diagnosis, Ms. Ward located and treated with one of the top Lyme Literate Doctors in the US who treated her with a combination of antibiotics. She also utilized herbs, prebiotics, probiotics, dietary changes and the “game changing” CBD.
The positive health results she achieved utilizing CBD inspired Ms. Ward to study the endocannabinoid system and the beneficial impacts of cannabis products. She then founded a company to “educate consumers about the amazing benefits of cannabis and provide high-quality CBD products.”
