About O by Missionary

Dr. Melissa Berry - Owner of Missionary Chocolates and O By MissionaryMissionary Chocolates began in 2008 when Melissa Berry, a Naturopathic Physician, was in her last year of medical school. What started out as gifts for her vegan mother quickly became a company, as a few months later her dairy-free truffles won first place at the Northwest Chocolate Festival in Portland, OR.

This unexpected success changed what was a home-based kitchen experiment in chocolate into a thriving company — the Mission of the company has always been to build an inpatient, integrative healing center in Portland, funded by chocolate.

Dr. Berry was inspired to begin making CBD truffles for her 71-year-old mother, who has chronic Lyme disease that has caused severe joint destruction and intense muscular pain. “This is the only form of pain relief that has truly helped by mother, and has not caused any of the side effects that can be experienced with other forms of pain control.”

This has been a project nearly 2 years in the making, and is the result of extensive product development and testing. Unlike many of the edibles that are found in local marijuana dispensaries, these are truly “grown up” chocolates, perfect for anyone seeking a high quality, delicious treat that has no detectable cannabis taste, just great chocolate flavor.” In addition, all of the truffles are free of dairy, gluten and nuts, making them safe for most people with common food sensitivities.
