Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker just launched a vegan CBD wellness brand
This week the musician and longtime vegan Travis Barker – drummer of the legendary band blink-182 – announced the start of Barker Wellness, a cannabinoid (CBD) infused, THC-free vegan and cruelty-free brand. The mission of the new brand is to offer vegan products for optimal physical and mental health. The line includes tinctures ($ 64 for individuals and $ 175 for a set) in three wellness options: maintenance with broad-spectrum CBD and cannabigerol (CBG) as well as B12, vitamin C, and hemp extract; Recreation infused with cannabichromene (CBC), broad-spectrum hemp extract, ashwagandha extract, and red reishi mushroom extract; and sleep with CBD, cannabinol (CBN), melatonin, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and valerian root extract. The line also offers Snap packets in Rise (a coffee-infused formula to promote alertness) and Sleep (a soothing formula to promote sleep), as well as a pain relief cream containing CBC, CBD, CBG, and moisturizing bisabolol and cucumber extract.
“I started trying many different CBD products on my own daily routine and saw their benefits firsthand. So I decided to create my own ideal formulas and share them with anyone looking to improve their overall health, ”said Barker. “While many of the traditional cannabinoid companies mostly use CBD, it was important that our formulas included some of the lesser known but highly potent cannabinoids like CBG, CBN and CBC. The complete combination of these cannabinoids, herbs and natural ingredients make them highly effective in meeting different needs. “
The line is available now from Barker Wellness website with plans to start in retail stores soon.
