Try  It Out : Papa & Barkley CBD “Releaf”  | By Kim Fuller   

Last Updated: March 24, 2021By

Navigating the CBD world isnt easy, as there are so many options to try and significant investment in every trial. Papa & Barkley offers a range of CBD products in their Releaf line, including body oil, balm, capsules, bath soaks, tinctures and patches. The products are aimed to assist in relieving the body of stress, sore muscles and pain.  

Papa & Barkleys story starts in the founders kitchen with a balm that was made to ease his fathers pain. In conjunction with other therapies, this got Papa out of hospice and able to return home. As stated on the companys website, it is named after Papa and the familys loyal pit bull, Barkley, symbolizing the unconditional love and support that we hope to capture in the products that we make today.”  

This love was evident in the products I tested — the capsules and the tinctures starting from the high-quality packaging. The presentation of the Papa & Barkley products makes it very evident how much attention and care has been put into them.  

The CBD capsules are made from ingredients grown on Colorado farms. The 30-milligram single-dose capsules are designed to offer whole body relief. I tested a dosage after a full day on my mat at the Montrose Yoga Festival in October. After about an hour my joints were less achy and my muscles more relaxed.  

I have a bottle of the Papa & Barkley tincture in a drawer under my desk, and Ive been taking it in the morning when I get to work. This fast-acting concentrated liquid did offer relief from inflammation after my morning workouts. Its made with MCT oil, which helps your body metabolize the cannabinoids more quickly. I usually feel the releafeffect in about 15 minutes.
