Floyd’s of Leadville offers a variety of CBD and hemp-based products, said to offer a reduction in post-exercise inflammation, along with antioxidant and anti-anxiety properties. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid of marijuana, and has been in the news lately having been legalized nationwide – sort of.
As part of the 2018 Farm Bill, farmers in all 50 states are allowed to produce industrial hemp, which has been removed from the Schedule 1 drug classification and can be used to produce CBD products. This gives a boost to the CBD industry, effectively legalizing all CBD products that fall below the legal limit of 0.3% THC. CBD products containing more than 0.3% THC remain federally illegal. The final rub is that not all government agencies agree on CBD, with the most recent reports saying that the DEA still classifies it as illegal, and the FDA still considering it a drug.
This is all good news for Floyd’s though, who produce two specific types products to cover the bases. First, they offer a Full Spectrum CBD, which does contain trace amounts of THC resulting in “a synergic effect that supplements and enhances the benefits of CBD for extra strength.
They also offer CBD Isolate, which contains zero THC. According to Floyd’s,
“CBD Isolate is a purified cannabidiol without cannabis and residual cannabinoids. Products made with CBD Isolate contain zero THC making them safe for people concerned about drug testing at their place of employment. CBD Isolate is also perfect for people who don’t need the full capabilities of our Full Spectrum CBD.”
Floyd’s recently introduced an addition to the CBD Isolate product line, with a new 1,800mg tincture – their most concentrated and potent ever. Made using a CO2 extraction process, they guarantee it’s pure and free of anything that could put your employment status at risk.
