Travis Barker has been very busy over the past year. After coming out of his Blink-182 tour with Lil Wayne, Barker began collaborating with rappers such as Rick Ross and Trippy Red. Now, he is focusing on a different endeavor: Barker is officially entering the CBD market.
The musician brand name Barker Wellness differs from other CBD companies as it focuses on lesser-known cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN and CBC. The three main areas Barker wants to target with its products are those fighting insomnia, assisted recovery and general “maintenance”.
Speaking about Barker wellness in an interview with Rolling stone, Barker explained the reason for starting to use CBD products:
“As a symptom of being in the music space and just having seizures, I always take a CBD bath or an Epsom salt bath or take a ton of CBD after the show and I notice that recovery was an issue, especially for months. To tour [and] Doing five to six shows a week. And the process went like, ‘How do I feel with recovery?’ I tried everything from cryotherapy to massage therapy, but CBD was the best kind of result I got. […] I used to have trouble sleeping and I used to take a ton of melatonin, valerian tea, tylenol PM or nylene. And before that it was actually Ambien. I was addicted to it at one point. “
Elsewhere in the interview, Barker kept his vision for his new products. “In an ideal world for me, I want the product to be everywhere, ranging from Aveyron to Sepora to CVS,” he said. “It’s not a Band-Aid, one-time project,” he says. “I really want to help people.”
