Papa & Barkley Releases Cannabis Line Targeted For Better Sleep
California-based cannabis company Papa & Barkley has announced the creation of its new Sleep Releaf Collection, which is a line of cannabis-infused sleep aids the company says is guaranteed to deliver consumers one more hour of sleep per night. Through an at-home product test conducted with over 90 participants, consumers reported an 80% improvement in sleep quality.
The new line of cannabis-infused sleep aids infuses its Sleep Releaf Products with a formula of CBD intended to aid with relaxation, THC intended to enhance comfort, and solventless-derived CBN, which is intended to provide sedative effects to help consumers fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling refreshed. The collection features four products: capsules, a tincture, blackberry elderberry-flavored gummies, and pomegranate dark chocolate.
Mitch Earleywine, PhD, a professor at SUNY Albany and member of the Papa & Barkley Scientific Advisory Board, helped the brand conduct its home use test states. Earleywine says, “Papa & Barkley places a tremendous value in Real World Evidence, so the team put the new Sleep Releaf formula to the test. I am extremely proud to have helped Papa & Barkley become the first brand in California to test the sleep benefits of a CBN-infused product and am even more impressed with the results.”
Forbes caught up with Guy Roucourt, president and chief product officer of Papa & Barkley, to get more information about Sleep Releaf.
What went into the creation of Sleep Releaf?
Papa & Barkley takes a holistic approach to sleep, infusing each product with a powerful balance of CBD for relaxation, THC for comfort, and CBN for sedative effects.
Papa & Barkley is committed to solventless whole plant infusion processes, which means chemicals never touch our products. This ensures all products are clean, natural, and full of the plant’s natural nutrient profile to maximize sleep benefits. We stayed true to our whole plant ethos when creating our Sleep Releaf collection because we believe in true plant medicine and know consumers deserve an effective, plant-based sleep solution.

What can consumers expect from Sleep Releaf?
The Sleep Releaf Collection is a line of chemical-free, cannabis-infused sleep aids that offer an effective, natural solution for better sleep.

How is Sleep Releaf different from cannabis we see on the market today?
Papa & Barkley’s Sleep Releaf Collection features four products – Capsules, Tincture, Blackberry Elderberry Gummies, and Pomegranate Dark Chocolate – so consumers can personalize their bedtime rituals.
CBN is a minor cannabinoid known for its sedative effects and found in aged cannabis or cannabis exposed to heat and light; during the aging process THC converts into CBN. Most brands use chemical processes to extract CBN, but at Papa & Barkley we are committed to clean, solventless infusion processes. We are pioneering an innovative, completely chemical-free way to convert THC-rich rosin into CBN-rich rosin using heat. This ensures our Sleep Releaf products are infused with the plant’s full nutrient profile to maximize sleep benefits.
What is cannabis’s relationship to sleep and how do various cannabinoids affect it?
Anecdotally, we know cannabis helps with sleep. If anyone has smoked old cannabis, they’ll find it gives them a sleepier high. That’s because when aged or exposed to heat and light, THC can convert into CBN, a minor cannabinoid known for its sedative effects. CBN-rich products leverage those sedative effects to aid with falling asleep.
At Papa & Barkley we’re firm believers that the plant works synergistically, meaning when the plant is kept intact all its compounds work together to provide maximum therapeutic benefits. With that in mind Papa & Barkley’s Sleep Releaf products are infused with more than just CBN. Each serving contains 2 parts CBD, 4 parts THC, and 1 part CBN. CBD relaxes the mind and body, THC provides comfort, and CBN offers sedative effects. This powerful ratio helps consumers not just fall asleep, but also stay asleep and wake up refreshed.
Why is sleep so important? For you and your customers?
According to the American Sleep Association, up to 70 million American adults currently struggle with sleep disorders. Many Americans struggle to get quality sleep yet we know that sleep is a core pillar of good health; when we’re able to sleep better we improve our overall wellness. As a wellness brand, we felt a responsibility to find a better sleep solution, so we set out to create an effective yet natural product.
