Papa & Barkley chocolates provide quality Releaf

from Papa & Barkley

Papa & Barkley's Releaf Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt bars make for a tip-tier THC treat.

When it comes to Cannabis-infused chocolates, we are not starved for choice.

Instead, there are now any number of options for Cannabis consumers looking to combine an affinity for sweets with a dose of THC. But what sets popular topical maker Papa & Barkley apart is their dedication to getting the simple things absolutely perfect, including their Releaf Chocolates.

Headquartered in Eureka, the Papa & Barkley crew has been churning out top-quality salves, transdermal patches and tinctures for years. Now, on the heels of an expansion into concentrates, they’re back again with two varieties of THC-infused chocolate. Available in either Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt, each bar comes packed with 100mg of THC (5mg per serving) courtesy of solventless, fresh-pressed rosin.

This infusion technique may just seem like fancy words, but when it comes to biting off a square of Releaf chocolate, the result is that one can expect to taste the rich flavors of the chocolate itself, without any distasteful reminders of the infusion process.

For those who prefer the light stuff, Papa & Barkley’s Milk Chocolate Bar rises to the challenge while featuring 84% Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients. It also has an impressively silky texture, which only makes it all the more difficult to stop at the desired dose – which, to be clear, offers plenty of punch at its intended serving size. 

The same can be said for their 66% Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Bar, which features 99% Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients with a dash of sea salt. My personal palate favors dark chocolate and salt by default, so it was this latter option that truly won over my tastebuds. 

That said, both formulas are equally dosed, meaning it’s really just a matter of chocolate preference. Once again, Papa & Barkley has proven that simple is often best. Who’s hungry?
