Floyd Landis launches new cannabis company in Colorado


Floyd’s of Leadville, a new Colorado based recreational marijuana infused product brand, announces its launch this week.

Founded by former professional cyclist Floyd Landis, his new company enters the recreational cannabis industry specializing in pesticide free cannabis oil sourced from high altitude growers using an industry leading, pharmacy grade CO 2 extraction process. Uniquely formulated vape and edible products are crafted for an enhanced consumer experience and are carefully prepared by licensed pharmacists to maximize the many health benefits of recreational cannabis.

Landis relishes his new role as a producer of high quality cannabis products. “I am really excited about this new phase in my life. The cannabis industry is growing fast and I am fortunate to have this opportunity to play a role.”

Landis sees the mission of the company as dual faceted, both as a producer of premium products and as a supporter of alternatives to addictive painkillers.

“The therapeutic uses for cannabis can’t be ignored. For years I relied on opioid pain relievers to treat my hip pain. With cannabis, I find that I can manage my pain and have a better quality of life. We need to give people a safer alternative.”
