Papa and Barkley was founded in 2015 when the founder, Adam, was working on finding a product to heal his father’s debilitating back pain.  After conventional treatments failed, he researched and created a surprisingly effective cannabis-based pain relief balm in his father’s kitchen.  The home remedy not only helped to bring his father out of a bedridden state, second only to the love of the family dog, Barkley.

The son’s next step was to gather a team of best-in-class scientists and researchers to advance the formula and make it even more powerful so it could be used to help more people and their loved ones.
