Floydivus Chapter 3: The Final Topic

T’was the third week of Floydivus and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. To be fair though, CBD is really great for insomnia so that’s a fairly standard arrangement around here. We’ve been furiously wrapping gifts as Floyd gets ready to make his annual Floydivus trip around Leadville and beyond distributing presents.
If you’re still slacking on your shopping, remember that the thing that makes a good gift is specificity, something that is specific to your relationship to the person you’re giving the gift to. A chalk bag for that climbing buddy who always forgets theirs, a saddle bag for that guy who never brings a spare on long mountain bike rides or a new pair of running shoes for that person who doesn’t realize their gym bag should have a biohazard warning when you carpool back from events.
We know all about specificity here at Floyd’s, in fact we have produce a product especially for targeting specific aches and pains. Unlike our consumables, our balms are designed to go on your body, not in it. You’ve probably used balms before, they’re the things you buy at the pharmacy that make your skin feel tingly hot or tingly cold. But unlike those drug store brands, ours use natural organic ingredients and a healthy serving of CBD.
Using balms is easy, you just slap them where it hurts and they do the rest. If you’re using CBD for a specific pain or injury, maybe you tweaked your back carrying your tree up the stairs or your knee hurts since you got your new cycling shoes, then balm could be a great way to treat it. Our balms don’t just contain CBD either, we’ve dug deep into our festive sack of herbal ingredients to offer synergistic blends in three different combinations for whatever pain is sucking the fun out of your Floydivus.
CBD Cooling Balm, full spectrum 600mg
It might be hard to remember what it felt like to overheat, but it might not if you routinely ride inside at this time of year. Either way, this cooling balm makes a great way to recover from aches and pains. Using peppermint for its cooling and antiseptic properties, arnica to reduce inflammation and swelling, camphor to reduce skin irritation and wintergreen to reduce pain and cramps, this is the perfect way to recover from a hard workout. Of course there is CBD as well, 600mg per container. Oh and it smells great, which is more than we can say about most of us after a long ride.
CBD Warming Balm, full spectrum, 600mg
When Floyd sets off on his floydivus journey, he’ll be bringing joy to the world and warmth into the hearts of even the scroogiest of Scrooges with his gifts and merry demeanour. We can’t all do that, but sometimes our goals are more humble; sometimes we just want to bring warmth into the muscles of our lower back. And that’s why we created our warming balm: it’s like a hug in a jar. In addition to camphor and arnica, it uses menthol to soothe your tired muscles and cinnamon to reduce inflammation. We know there are other warming creams at your local pharmacy, but how many of them promise 600mg of CBD per package and the comforting feeling of a cuddle on your aching lower back?
CBD Arnica Balm, full spectrum 600mg
Sometimes we all get a bit carried away. It might be that last dyno on a boulder problem you’ve been working on for weeks or that rock garden that you’ve always been a little afraid of, but there comes a time when you’ve just gotta send it. And shortly after that time there comes the thud of flesh on the floor as you use your skin to slow down. Whatever your workout, it’s likely that sometimes you come home a little worse for wear, it’s not the best part of being an athlete, but it’s inevitable and it’s much better if you’re prepared. Our arnica balm is here for you when the traction on your front tire wasn’t, it contains arnica, ginger, rosemary and peppermint to soothe your bruising and reduce pain and swelling. It’s so good you’ll want to buy two, one for you and one for that guy who never quite seemed to grasp how cornering around other people works.
And thus Floydivus comes to a close. We’ve hopefully kept the grievances to a minimum while providing you with ample opportunities for feats of strength now and in 2019.
