EUREKA, Calif., Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Papa & Barkley, the leading cannabis wellness company in California, best known for its award-winning topicals and tinctures, today announced the launch of its Releaf Chocolates, a line of delicious, THC-rich premium edibles made with Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients and solventless fresh-pressed rosin. The bars are soy-free, non-GMO, Whole Plant Full Spectrum™, and available in Milk Chocolate and 66% Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt.
The launch of Releaf Chocolates follows that of Releaf Gummies, the healthiest gummies on the California cannabis market, demonstrating the brand's deep commitment to making edibles that are accessible to consumers looking for healthier options, as well as those with dietary restrictions or preferences. "We are excited to expand our offerings of solventless wellness products," says Adam Grossman, Papa & Barkley Founder and Executive Chairman. The brand is expanding its presence in the over $400 million dollar California edibles market. "We're defining a space in the category for cannabis consumables made with better-for-you ingredients and designed specifically for a healthy lifestyle."
A Healthy Cannabis Delicacy.
The brand's new chocolates feature a hint of cannabis flavor, a trademark of President and Chief Product Officer Guy Rocourt who says, "the goal was to create a delicious, high-quality edible that honors the plant by maintaining its integrity and flavor, a component we believe consumers will actively seek out as the industry matures further." Humboldt chocolatier, Jonah Ginsberg brought his 7 years of experience to the Papa & Barkley team to help craft Releaf Chocolates. According to Rocourt, "Papa & Barkley slow-churns its chocolate with fresh-pressed solventless rosin over a 24-hour period under strict temperature control to create a smooth and silky texture". The chocolate's natural antioxidants combine with the therapeutic benefits of cannabis to deliver consistent relief. The chocolates are great for occasional pain, whole body wellness, relaxation, and sleep.
Chocolate with a Conscience
Papa & Barkley values its support for farm partners and prioritizes delivering high-quality, natural products to consumers, making the choice to ethically source Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients an important one. For its Releaf Chocolates, the brand pairs organic cacao with clean cannabis that is sourced from carefully selected farms utilizing sun-grown and regenerative farming practices.
Each of Papa & Barkley's Releaf Chocolate bars contains 100mg of THC, with 5mg of cannabinoids per piece. Each bar retails for $18 and is available online and in leading California dispensaries. To learn more, visit papaandbarkley.com/releaf-chocolate.
