IT ALL STARTED WITH A SON’S LOVE FOR HIS FATHER.
Our namesake comes from our founder’s father, Papa, and his beloved dog, Barkley.
The idea for Papa & Barkley came about after our founder, Adam Grossman, was desperate to find a way to relieve his father’s debilitating back pain. He asked a friend for some cannabis, borrowed a Crock-Pot, and created the first version of our famous Releaf Balm.
Adam’s creation helped relieve Papa’s back pain, and got him off hospice and back up on his feet.
Adam shared that first balm with more family and friends, and they confirmed it worked. He then knew he had to share his product with the world, with an image of Papa and his dog Barkley on the package, of course.
Today, Papa & Barkley still puts an exceptional amount of love and care into each of our products on our continued mission to
unlock the power of cannabis to improve people's lives.
