Papa and Barkley Tinctures: The Releaf You Have Been Waiting For

Oct 26, 2018

Papa and Barkley tinctures are designed for a sublingual application. The MCT oil base makes it easy to digest; perfect for under the tongue (15 to 45-minute onset) or mixed into your favorite beverage (45 to 90-minute onset).

Papa and Barkley Releaf Tinctures

Founded in 2015, Papa & Barkley is rooted in providing pain relief and encouraging people to live their healthiest life. Founder Adam Grossman created Papa & Barkley with the development of a cannabis-based pain relief balm designed to alleviate the debilitating back pain his bedridden father was experiencing. Having tried and failed traditional treatments, Adam sought out cannabis after researching its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits. The balm, which was conjured in his father’s kitchen, surprised the family with its ability to help get Adam’s father out of his bedridden state, maybe with the added help of the family dog Barkley. Just like that, Papa & Barkley was born.

Once it became apparent that people could benefit from this product, Adam enlisted the help of scientists and researchers to enhance the line and solidify the best pain-alleviating ratios. The Releaf Tinctures, which we will be highlighting today, are produced in three different ratios (30:1 no psychoactivity, 1:1 potential mild psychoactivity, and 1:3 medium to high psychoactivity). All tinctures are made with an MCT oil base and the cannabis oil is derived via a 100% solvent and chemical free extraction with a coconut oil infusion. The tinctures are designed to be delivered either sublingually with an anticipated 15-30 minute onset or orally (in beverages) with an anticipated 60-minute onset.

Papa and Barkley Releaf Tinctures: 10/10 Would Recommend

Papa & Barkley products have held a special place in the hearts of TheHerbCures team since we first came across them in 2016. Both our CEO and our CMO utilize the Releaf Patches to address issues related to herniated discs, pinched nerves, and pilonidal cysts. The tinctures joined our daily regimen with the addition of a THCa:CBD formulation last year. Integrating this additional cannabinoid into the product lineup allows patients and customers alike to maximize the therapeutic benefits of the Releaf Tincture while minimizing the psychoactive effects. However, the three varying ratios allow consumers to medicate for a variety of ailments with ease.


THCa (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) is found in the raw cannabis plant. In actuality, THCa is the state of cannabis in all of its glory prior to decarboxylation (the process of drying and heating i.e. smoking, cooking) and comprises a majority of the chemical profile of the Cannabis sativa we know and love. The primary therapeutic benefits of THCa are its anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and immune boosting properties. Similar to CBD, THCa is non-psychoactive, positioning it as a wonderful alternative for patients seeking the benefits of THC without the euphoria. The most popular way to obtain THCa at home is by juicing raw cannabis (here is a helpful guide from MedicalJane).

This particular tincture is effective in treating symptoms related to digestive disorders such as IBS, Chron’s Disease, and Celiac Disease, chronic pain, muscle inflammation, and nerve spasms. It can be utilized as a preventative tincture as well due to its immune-boosting properties.

15ml bottle contains 225mg CBD : 225mg THCa, 450mg Total Cannabinoids

30ml bottle contains 450mg CBD : 450mg THCa, 900mg Total Cannabinoids


While the non-psychoactive ratios provided by the other tinctures are sure to provide relief for countless individuals, THC remains high in demand and provides its own medicinal value. Both low and high-tolerance consumers can find aid in the 1:3 THC dominant Releaf tincture. The strong analgesic or pain-alleviating properties of tetrahydrocannabinol are amplified by the presence of cannabidiol, with each essentially boosting the benefit of the other. While this tincture produces psychoactivity, it is mild in comparison to a tincture void of any CBD, making this a great choice for consumers seeking relief from anxiety and stress or addressing inflammation issues.  This ratio can act an as advanced pain reliever with the synergistic benefits CBD and THC provide.

This particular ratio can be effective in addressing a variety of symptoms related to addiction therapy, chronic pain, insomnia, and depression.

15ml bottle contains approximately 100mg CBD : 350mg THC, approximately 450mg Total Cannabinoids

30ml bottle contains approximately 200mg CBD : 700mg THC, approximately 900mg Total Cannabinoids


The whole plant infusion of this cannabidiol rich tincture positions it as an impressive choice for any individual seeking the benefits of whole plant medicine with no head change. For more information on the benefits of whole plant medicine, refer to point 6 from our previous post. The 30:1 CBD dominant ratio of this tincture is a prime selection for relief from chronic pain. The rich CBD content also allows this tincture to be effective as a preventative measure for future ailments and diseases. Project CBD reports that “prolonged low dose therapy may be advantageous for managing chronic symptoms or to prevent disease recurrence. Preclinical studies indicate that cannabinoids have neuroprotective and cardioprotective properties that could limit the damage of a traumatic brain injury or a heart attack”. A fantastic option for both entry-level cannabis consumers and those seeking out a stronger medicinal value from their products.

The 30:1 Releaf tincture is an effective choice for consumers suffering from epilepsy and chronic pain or who may be undergoing cancer treatment.

15ml bottle contains approximately 435mg CBD : 15mg THC, approximately 450mg Total Cannabinoids

30ml bottle contains approximately 870mg CBD : 30ng THC, approximately 900mg Total Cannabinoids
