Claims that topical creams offers advantage over oral options

Floyd's of Leadville

Floyd’s of Leadville, the Colorado-based maker of CBD pain management supplements that was founded by former pro cyclist Floyd Landis, has introduced a new CBD based transdermal cream.

Floyd’s claims that the topical creams offers advantage over oral options (which the company also sells), allowing a higher concentration of medication to be applied directly to the area in need of pain relief.

Recently the World Health Organization released a memo saying that CBD may have some medical use, and the World Anti-Doping Agency has removed CBD from their banned substance list. However, THC, the main active ingredient in marijuana, remains on the WADA banned list.

“Recent evidence from animal and human studies shows that its use could have some therapeutic value for seizures due to epilepsy and related conditions,” read the WHO statement. “Current evidence also shows that cannabidiol is not likely to be abused or create dependence.”

Floyd’s of Leadville CBD hemp oil is said to utilize anti-inflammatory strains, which are claimed to take the edge off pain post exercise. It can also be applied to a pre-existing injury. The introduction of a topical cream means pain relief can be applied directly to the area in need and the effects can be felt more quickly, as it does not need to go through the digestive system, says Floyd’s. Cost is $69 for 700mg.

Just know that these statements and product have not been evaluated or tested by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease. Do not use if you are pregnant or lactating, and always consult a medical physician before modifying your diet or using any new dietary supplements.
