Floyd Landis to enter cannabis business

by CyclingTips

Floyd Landis is apparently entering the increasingly popular cannabis business in Colorado, creating a company called ‘Floyd’s of Leadville’ that will sell cannabis infused products.

According to a press release the company will specialize in products containing cannabis oil sourced from high altitude growers using an industry leading, pharmacy grade CO2 extraction process.

“The 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.”

“I am really excited about this new phase of my life. The cannabis industry is growing fast and I am fortunate to have this opportunity to play a role,” Landis said in the release.

The former pro is currently involved in a federal whistleblower lawsuit against Lance Armstrong, which could net him a large cash payout. The company has a web site and social media accounts, but has yet to post more information.
