Travis Barker is known for his passion for health and wellness, so launching his own brand – Barker Wellness – was a no-brainer.
Ever since Travis Barker became a series regular on The Kardashians, viewers have witnessed his love for health and wellness. Along with Kourtney Kardashian’s obsession with gluten-free and organic foods, they make the perfect pair.
Although the Blink-182 drummer is known for his complicated beats that established him as a top rocker, his personality unexpectedly contrasts with his tough image. Any interview is evidence that softly-spoken Barker prefers a mellow lifestyle when off the road – even his Calabasas home was re-designed with a neutral palette to become a tranquil sanctuary.
The 46-year-old unveiled his cannabinoid-based vegan wellness brand in February 2021, which even offers relaxing products for furry friends.
Barker Wellness Co was the answer to his hectic schedule
Barker’s advocacy for wellness began due to his hectic lifestyle; with countless back-to-back shows, his health became a priority to fulfil the demanding schedule. The drummer discovered cannabinoids “to nurture both mind and body” and thus came the birth of Barker Wellness Co.
Talking to Men’s Health, the musician revealed he used CBD “religiously” to recover from touring, and got the idea to make the products vegan and cruelty-free due to a gap in the celebrity wellness market.
His dive into wellness was also partly propelled by his near-death experience in 2008. As the only survivor of a deadly plane crash, where the private jet hit an embankment and burst into flames shortly after takeoff, it motivated his decision to live healthier and quit prescription drug abuse. His painkiller addition, developed to cope with his fear of flying, resulted in calcium depletion.
Since the plane crash, Barker switched from a vegetarian to a vegan diet, and has become an excellent matcha brewer.
Tinctures and gummies galore
The brand offers edible products, along with balms, creams, and soaks – in other words, CBD in every form.
Most products following the three-step routine of maintenance, recovery, and sleep to enable the full benefits of cannabinoids. Gummies are available in apple matcha, citrus, and cherry acai flavours, starting at $65 for 30 sweets.
Tinctures sleekly packaged in glass dropper bottles come in a $65 for 30ml. Featuring additional herbs, including ashwagandha and red reishi mushroom extract, they provide an extra immune system boost.
Furry friends are not forgotten; available in beef, bacon, and tuna flavours, tinctures are advertised to alleviate joint and muscle discomfort, and relieve stress.
Even the dogs in the Barker household are mellow as ever.
