My achin’ back, part I

A familiar twinge of pain turned into something entirely unfamiliar after a short ride a few months ago.

I was riding a bike that was slightly too big for me (a hazard of my job) and while I didn’t notice any pain while riding, something in my lower back went pop when I dismounted in my driveway.

I’ve felt this pop before. It’s usually followed by a few days to a week of sciatic pain that runs down my left leg. Cue the stretching, Tylenol, and limping around like an old man. I was prepared for this old routine.

But it didn’t end up being routine at all. What usually ends up being a week of mild pain turned into months of limited mobility, soreness in my lower back, and the old standby, sciatic pain — this time more intense, and in both legs as well as my lower back. I was in new, and very uncomfortable, territory.

A visit to the doctor revealed the possibility of a bulging disc in my spine. Doc said an X-ray was probably in order (which I still haven’t done) and he offered several solutions, from muscle relaxers to surgery, though he cautioned against the latter. I opted for a daily regimen of stretches in hopes of relieving the pain.

It worked, but only for minutes at a time. The pain hung on. I’d like to tell you there was a neat resolution to my back issues, but they persist to this day and I’m deep in the process of figuring out what to do next.

In the meantime, I’ve had to find ways to dull the pain enough to function daily. I’ve been off the bike, which has been detrimental to my physical and mental health. I’m desperate to get spinning again. But I’m allergic to Ibuprofen and Advil. Tylenol only provides mild relief. (It’s also pretty rough on the liver.) And the idea of subsisting off of such medications daily certainly wasn’t appealing.

So on top of daily stretching and mulling over things like acupuncture, chiropractic care, and surgery, it seemed like a good time to test out Floyd’s of Leadville’s CBD oil capsules.

Bumping into Floyd Landis

Landis’s products contain cannabidiol, or CBD. While it is derived from the marijuana plant, it won’t get you high. The hemp-based CBD Landis sells is not psychoactive, and it does not contain Tetrahydrocannibabinol, or THC — basically, the chemical in marijuana that gets you high.

But the jury’s still out on how to use CBD, and what it’s actually useful for. The side-effects seem mild if you experience them at all (tiredness and diarrhea are most commonly listed as side effects), and while some peer-reviewed studies of CBD (such as this one from the Journal of Experimental Medicine) indicate it is useful for suppression of chronic pain, there’s still a distinct lack of research. Most notably, there doesn’t seem to be much of a consensus on recommended dosages.

And legality is also a bit of a gray area. Since Floyd’s CBD is derived from hemp, it appears to be legal in all 50 states. But some states have specific regulations regarding CBD’s legality. It’s best to check your local laws before purchasing. Floyd’s of Leadville ships its products within the United States only.

Distilled to the basics, Floyd’s CBD oil seems like a low-risk experiment for a guy like me battling chronic pain. Landis knows a thing or two about that, himself.

“Back then, I took pharmaceutical pain meds, whatever they gave me,” says Landis when I ran into him at the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival. “I injured [my hip] in 2002, 2003 I guess, at the beginning of the year. I broke it and I had a couple of surgeries. I was prescribed all kinds of Vicodin, and Oxycontin and things.”

There is no high. You don’t feel like you smoked a joint or ate an edible or anything like that. So if you’re worried about getting stoned, forget it. You’ll be alert and functioning normally when you take these capsules. The first couple of times I took the capsules I felt a sort of vagueness in my fingertips — a bit of a swimmy feeling — that disappeared almost immediately. Other than that, I felt as normal as though I’d popped a vitamin. There was no high to speak of.

I’ve been taking the CBD capsules for a few months now and it appears to have the same effect now as it did when I first started using it. In other words, it does not appear that I’ve built up any sort of tolerance that would require me to up the dosage.

“Relax and Recover” is printed on the bottle. It makes sense: After a long ride, inflammation seems inevitable. I’ve used the capsules after a ride and it seems to work just as well as any recovery drink I’ve ever tried. But I haven’t yet tried it after an all-day grind in the mountains; I’ll get to that this summer when I’m back on the bike. Landis says his company will be announcing a CBD recovery drink soon, too.

What it didn’t do

As someone who also suffers from anxiety and mild depression, I was curious if CBD would have any noticeable effects in this regard. I can’t say that it did, but I also can’t say that it didn’t. And that’s ultimately the problem with CBD: While it was easy for me to confirm its usefulness for pain relief, it was impossible for me to determine if it was helping me out with any of the other myriad claims all over the internet about what CBD can do.

CBD can come in many forms such as tinctures and softgel capsules. Floyd’s also sells a transdermal sports cream that provides spot treatment of pain. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com

“That’s a big issue for the whole industry because there hasn’t been enough time where it’s been accepted for there to have been any real large-scale studies,” says Landis. “So we have no choice at the moment but to rely on anecdotes and our own experience. There are so few people that have called us and said, hey, this didn’t work. Everyone else has reached out and said this stuff is real, thanks for making it.”

Fortunately, I’m in the “thanks for making it” camp. I would take this over Tylenol any day. But as is the case with anything you put in your body, it’s best to consult your doctor first. I can say that using Floyd’s CBD oil has been beneficial for me, but I can’t say it will be equally beneficial for you. The mystery swirling around CBD will continue swirling until more peer-reviewed studies are available.

My recommendations for getting started with CBD

• Talk to your doctor first. This is especially important if you’re on any regular medications.
• Start with a low dose (25mg) and see how it affects you. Then increase from there if necessary.
• Set reasonable expectations for pain relief. You won’t get stoned, and you won’t “feel no pain.” CBD takes the edge off, though.
• Address the cause of your pain. Like any pain relief substance, CBD will only provide temporary relief. Getting to the root cause of the pain should be your long-term plan.

Floyd’s RX CBD + CBG Tablets get an acceptable rating from our expert CBD review staff. These tablets do come in a bit low across the board. The package claims 1,800 mg of CBD vs. 1610 mg, and 180 mg of CBG vs. 108 mg. That being said, they are still a good choice for a CBD + CBG tablet.

Floyd’s of Leadville Full Spectrum Tincture gets a recommended review from our expert CBD review staff. This CBD oil is definitely a full-spectrum product, as it contains a whopping 106 mg of CBC.

Floyd’s on the go Transdermal CBD Sports Cream tested very well by our independent lab! Not only did it test for 16 mg over the label claim of 350 mg of CBD, the cost of this product brings the CBD$/value down to an astonishingly low $0.04 per mg of CBD. Although, this is a CBD isolate product, not full-spectrum, so there are no rare cannabinoids found in it.

Floyd’s of Leadville – Odessa’s CBD Recovery Bar for pets isn’t super far off from the label claim for CBD (just 3 mg less), but being that it contains such a low amount of CBD to begin with (claims 12 mg), that leaves the CBD$/value extremely high at almost $1.00 per mg.

From 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.
Floyd’s of Leadville is the result of a long journey from chronic pain and depression to health and well being. Floyd is passionate about helping others who may be experiencing physical discomfort, anxiety, or depression. That’s why he carefully developed a premium CBD product line to help people get over the pain and back in the game.
