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 Releaf Gummies, demonstrating the brand's 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. "We're defining a space in the category for cannabis consumables made with better-for-you ingredients and designed specifically for a healthy lifestyle."
The brand's new chocolates feature a hint of cannabis flavor, a trademark of Guy Rocourt, president and chief product officer, 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 seven years of experience to the Papa & Barkley team to help craft Releaf Chocolates. 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.
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 10 0mg of THC, with 5 mg of cannabinoids per piece. Each bar retails for $18 and is available online and in leading California dispensaries.
