PAPA’S CHAMPS: Cavan Valance

by Cyrus Sepahbodi |

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”


Here at Papa & Barkley we believe that Cannabis is not only an individual experience, but one that can change the way individuals live their lives. We take aim every day to empower our customers and to celebrate the reasons why Cannabis is such an amazing plant.

Today, we would like to celebrate one of Papa’s Champs: Cavan Valance.

I love to train hard and work out regularly. Shocked, right?! Well I wasn’t always fit. I was 22 years old and close to 300lbs.


One of the most difficult aspects of personal training and fitness is the recovery period after every workout. After breaking down muscles there can be inflammation or even pain. That is where  CBD comes in: Cannabidiol has numerous anti-inflammatory properties that help with recovery. Cavan is a regular user of Papa & Barkley’s recovery drops.

“Papa and Barkley’s recovery drops assist with my muscle inflammation and joint pain. When training with intensity our body needs to be well recovered. Since I started taking these drops, I never have to think about lingering aches and pains during training or throughout my day. P&B CBD has quickly become part of my nightly routine.”


CBD has the potential to speed workout recovery. Research confirms that CBD suppresses inflammation, swelling, and soreness while protecting muscle cells for growth. CBD also aids in better sleep, making recovery fast and efficient.

A little more about Cavan: 

“I was not happy with who I had become so I made a decision to change. One meal, one workout after the next. Left foot, right foot. There were great days and there were tough days. It wasn’t a straight line and it wasn’t easy, but it was definitely worth it. Fast forward to today and I could not be happier with where I’m heading. I love where I am, but I believe the best is yet to come. I love that I have the opportunity to help and train others in nutrition and in fitness. I love that I get to push my body beyond its limits. I love that I get spend the rest of my life with my best friend, Lindsay, and my little Australian Sheppard, Kilo. We get one chance at this thing and I’m just getting started.”
