Famed drummer and producer Travis Barker founded Barker Wellness, his own vegan wellness company combining the effects of broad spectrum CBD, cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), and other ingredients.

Often drummers aren’t the star of the band, unless you’re Barker: Rolling Stone named Barker one of the “Greatest Drummers of All Time,” including his roles with The Aquabats and more importantly as one-third of Blink-182.

Today he lives with his wife Kourtney Kardashian and children.
