About Floyd's of Leadville
Floyd’s story is that of a world-class athlete who attained both extraordinary peaks (winning the Tour De France) and painful valleys (injury and depression). As a professional cyclist, discomfort was a way of life, along with injuries in an ultra-competitive sport. One in particular—a 35 mile-per-hour crash—changed everything, and resulted in a hip replacement at the age of 31. Floyd turned to opioids, powerful drugs with well-documented side effects, to manage the pain.
After his injury Floyd started to rely on opioids, not only for pain relief but to escape depression from the realization his time as one of the world’s best athletes was over. Physically, he was in pain. Mentally, Floyd was struggling. He was left with the frightening task of picking up the pieces and trying to redefine himself; Floyd was no longer a professional athlete in one of the most popular sports in the world. He was now a former athlete with numerous lingering painful injuries on the precipice of depression. Until he found CBD.
CBD and Managing Chronic Pain
You don’t have to be an athlete to suffer from chronic pain or depression. In the past, doctors were quick to prescribe opioids or other addictive drugs. Floyd knew there had to be a better way than falling into a pill bottle and never emerging. As a resident of Colorado, he tried CBD to address pain and take control of his life. In a short time Floyd had left prescription medication behind and discovered how CBD would be an important part of his overall well-being. Floyd then turned to sharing his experience with Floyd’s of Leadville.
