Welcome to the VeloNews Tech podcast, where we discuss complex tech topics and distill them down into terms we can all understand.

Pain and injury often go hand in hand with life as a cyclist. Relieving that pain can be tricky, especially when it comes to medications and anti-inflammatory supplements. CBD oil is the new kid on the block — promising anti-inflammatory and pain relief properties, among a host of other benefits — and it’s championed by controversial former cyclist Floyd Landis. That’s not surprising, given Landis’s history of painful hip injuries.

In this episode of the VeloNews tech podcast, tech editor Dan Cavallari catches up with Landis — now proprietor of Floyd’s of Leadville — at the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival to find out what CBD is, why it works for cyclists, and what made Landis choose this controversial business.
