Can You Travel with CBD Oil?
With all of the new laws and subsequent restrictions surrounding CBD products, one big question comes up with immense frequency: can you travel with CBD oil or other CBD products? Certainly, with international travel, there are more stringent restrictions that should always be checked in terms of the airline and also the destination country. But what about domestic flights within the United States? Permission to fly with CBD oil isn’t something that should be assumed, and there are several points that you should be familiar with before you pack your bags and head out – which is why we’re here to help you get to the bottom of it.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) sets guidelines for travel and until recently, had prohibited flying with CBD products. This restriction has now been lifted and any products that are FDA approved or that contain hemp-derived CBD oil are permitted, but with a few restrictions in place.
TSA states that air travel with CBD oil is permitted and would be viewed the same as someone traveling with regular, over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. CBD oil is also permitted in both checked bags and carry-on luggage, as long as it meets the requirements for carrying liquids, gels, or oils in a carry-on bag.
According to the TSA’s website, you can travel with CBD oil provided that it contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It isn’t the priority of the TSA to search for THC or other drugs, but if you are found with THC products, TSA agents will hand you over to local law enforcement. We recommend going to directly to the TSA website for the most accurate and up-to-date information on what you can and cannot bring on your upcoming flight.
Electronic Cigarettes/Vape Pens
The TSA has further restrictions on how CBD can be used or consumed while traveling via air. Electronic cigarettes or vape pens are permitted in carry-on baggage, however, the use of these devices while in flight is prohibited across the country. This is due to the lithium batteries that many of these devices use.
Benefits of Traveling with CBD Oil
For many, the thought of flying can cause some situational anxiety for one reason or another. CBD boasts a wide array of health benefits and may help to reduce the stress associated with air travel, making it a top choice for many who desire a more relaxing experience. In theory, you could take CBD before your flight but not carry any with you during travel. This would eliminate any potential issues with bringing CBD oil on board, but you won’t have what you need once you land at your destination unless you find a new retailer who can help you.
Bringing your CBD oil on board with you during domestic travel enables you to purchase from your regular, quality store and continue using the products you are comfortable with.
