Papa & Barkley
“Papa’s back pain inspired me to make a cannabis-based medicine for pain relief.”
Our Releaf line was inspired by a son’s mission to ease his elderly father’s immobilizing back pain, a condition that forced the family to place “Papa” in hospice.
The original balm formulated in our founder’s kitchen eased his father’s pain and, in conjunction with other therapies, got Papa off hospice and able to return home.
Our Company is named after Papa and the family’s loyal pit bull, Barkley, symbolizing the unconditional love and support that we hope to capture in the products that we make today.
We are a family.
Today, we are a proud team of caregivers, scientists and professionals on a mission to unlock the power of cannabis to improve people’s lives. We make products for our family and yours.
