Papa & Barkley is renowned for the safe, simple ingredients it uses in both its CBD and THC products. As a result, we weren’t surprised by the cleanliness of the ingredients list provided with our Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3.
Here’s a full list of the ingredients present in this product:
Cannabis, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Essential Oil Blend (Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lavender), Vitamin E Oil, Natural Terpenes.
As you can see, there’s nothing in this product that would raise the eyebrows of even the most ardent Whole Foods shopper. Papa & Barkley is able to keep this topical clean and simple by opting for an oil-based formulation. Water-based topicals, while offering better bioavailability, are also notoriously complex and difficult to properly preserve.
We like the fact that Papa & Barkley adds terpenes to its THC Releaf Balm 1:3. Research suggests that terpenes might make cannabinoids more effective, which would make this CBD-THC hybrid product even more potent.
We noticed the effects of our Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3 around 15 minutes after application, which is relatively fast for an oil-based topical. Also unlike other oil-based formulations, our Releaf Balm absorbed quickly without leaving an oily sheen behind.
The aroma provided by our Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3 was mild, and it dissipated quickly. Our Papa & Barkley balm didn’t cause any feeling of intoxication, as is expected of a THC topical. It was relatively difficult to pinpoint exactly when the effects of our THC-CBD topical wore off, but its primary effects seemed to last 2-3 hours.
We used our 50ml container of Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3 over the course of 30 days. We used two fingers to scoop out and apply a healthy dollop of this balm once per day.
For our average aches and pains, Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3, worked perfectly well. The effects of this THC-CBD cream were mild enough, however, that we’re skeptical of how well it would work for arthritis, fibromyalgia, or other serious conditions.
Here’s an overview of the effects and activation time of our Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3:
We found that applying a reasonably-sized dollop of Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3 once per day to an area showing signs of pain provided effective relief. Individuals who experience moderate or severe pain may want to apply this cream two or three times per day.
Papa & Barkley THC Releaf Balm 1:3 is ideal for individuals who experience mild-to-moderate pain. It’s possible that this balm may also be useful for instances of severe pain, but it most likely won’t provide total relief. This brand’s THC products are only available within California.
Before the committee gets their hands on the product and formally rates it, the BestDosage team scrapes the product packaging, scours the internet, and occasionally calls the brand directly to hunt down the most accurate information about each product.
