Papa and Barkley boasts some of the most holistic topicals in the entire cannabis industry. Founder Adam Grossman’s father had been dealing with a debilitating back pain that was ongoing and made getting out of bed borderline impossible. After some research and insight from a friend who had prior experience with the cannabis industry, Grossman decided to give making a topical for his father a go. He sourced the best cannabis he could find and the first batch of Releaf Balm was created in his kitchen, and after the first application, his father was able to get out of bed. Bearing the name sake of his father and his faithful family dog, Grossman’s Papa and Barkley has quickly risen to the top of the California topical and therapeutic market.
