When Southern Californian Travis Barker, the legendary drummer, singer and record producer for the rock band Blink-182, survived an airplane crash, he made some lifestyle changes.
Living with pain, he worked on eliminating pain-dulling narcotics and used exercise and a vegan diet to help in his recovery.
In 2021, he launched a line of cannabinoid-infused products that he named Barker Wellness, with Ash Patel, CEO and Co-founder, and Jordan Tisdale. It’s a line of wellness and skin products Barker uses to help him sleep, relax and rest after being on the road performing on a fast paced concert tour.
Guests staying at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa will discover his line of Barker Wellness products in the reception and retail section at Spa Desert Springs. This largest hotel spa in Greater Palm Springs is the first Marriott to carry his line.

Barker Wellness is all natural, vegan, cruelty-free products that are ethically made THC-free. In a press release, Baker stated ‘I started trying lots of different CBD products in my own daily routine and saw their benefits firsthand.’
As the co-founder of Barker Wellness he decided to create his own ideal formulas to improve his general health. He realized it was important to not primarily use just CBD, but he wanted to incorporate lesser-known, but highly powerful cannabinoids. Using a combination of CBG, CBN and CBC with herbs and natural ingredients creates a highly effective product that effectively targets his different needs.
As he focused on health and recovery to attain a healthy functional lifestyle, Barker discovered cannabinoids’ unique ability to nurture both the body and the mind. These healing properties are infused in his premium, THC-free, cannabinoid-products.

The Pain Relief Cream he created has 400 mg Cannabichromene (CBC) as the main ingredient, and 300 mg CBG. There is also 300 mg Broad Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract, Bisabolol, and Cucumber Fruit Extract.
This vegan cannabinoid-infused pain relief cream is specially formulated to temporarily alleviate aches and pains. It’s stacked with deep moisturizing biabolol oil, an essential oil with components of German chamomile. This skin-soothing cream has antioxidants made from cucumber fruit extract.

The company makes a bath soak that relaxes one’s body as well as calming one’s senses. It’s a vegan, hemp-free bath bomb specially formulated to soothe and hydrate skin.
It’s a vegan combination of blue tansy flowers, lavender, eucalyptus, and prickly pear. Not only does it smell wonderful, but this bath bomb has essential therapeutic grade oils that include rosemary and sunflower, plus witch hazel, roselle, spirulina and algae. The vitamin E will help moisturize, strengthen and heal one’s skin barrier.
