“People from all walks of life use cannabis. From soccer moms to Rastas to seniors to rappers to lawyers to kids with epilepsy.”

-Kimberly Dillon, CMO Papa & Barkley


The Green Rush may be in full swing in ten states and legalized medicinally or decriminalized in another twenty five but the stigma that surrounds Cannabis is still alive and strong. One of the missions of Papa & Barkley is to educate the general public as to the amazing properties of the cannabis plant and its efficacy as a viable form of medicine. We had the opportunity to educate, be inspired, and interact with amazing groups of people at the Abilities Expo Los Angeles that took place February 21-23 at the LA Convention Center.

Breaking the Cannabis Stigma

Papa & Barkley had the opportunity to attend the Abilities Expo this year to share our products and education about the healing properties of Cannabis. We were not only humbled by the individuals in attendance but were thrilled that attendees were so interested in learning about Cannabis and the products that we make.

About the Abilities Expo

Abilities Expo is about bringing necessary products and services together under one roof for the community of people with disabilities, their families, caregivers, seniors, and healthcare professionals. It’s about introducing opportunities that can enrich your life …especially ones that you never knew were out there.”

Our very own Brand Ambassador Lorie Hirsch was in attendance and this is what she had to say about the event: “Of all the events that I have attended in my career the Abilities Expo was among the most humbling without a doubt. The people were very interested in learning more about the medicine and were eager to try samples.”

Cannabis & Hemp Education

At Papa & Barkley part of our mission is not only to educate but community outreach. Attending the Abilities Expo was an incredible treat for our team and we thank everyone who came over to our booth and were interested in our products and the power that Cannabis can have in their lives.

Papa & Barkley makes products to heal everyone and we meet people where they are. And if you need healing or relief and you’re too afraid to seek out cannabis we come to you. We offer help and guidance, so you can find the product that’s right for you, ask us questions, and feel comfortable using our medicine. That’s what we were doing a few weekends ago at Abilities Expo. We’re not just brand; we’re a helping hand.
