If you are a CBD user and plan on traveling, listen up! Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, there will still be plenty of travelers on the road and in the air this year. We know that traveling during this time can be hectic and we don’t want you to stress more than you have to. Thus, be sure to check you destinations local laws regarding CBD products before traveling. In this blog, we will discuss how to travel with CBD and how to avoid any confusion at the airport.
Flying with CBD Oil in The United States
When it comes to boarding an aircraft, you should always check theTSA Guidelines regarding what you can and can’t bring. As of January 2020, TSA guidelines state that consumers can travel with CBD products as long as products contain no more than 0.3 percent THC or have been approved by the FDA. This is great news for travelers, but it does not mean that you shouldn’t be cautious. TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of the law and if you are choosing to take a carry-on item or personal item on the plane versus a checked bag, you should also check the TSA guidelines regarding liquids. At this time, TSA guidelines state that “You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams, and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces or less per item.”
Diving With CBD
If you choose to keep your feet on the ground and travel by car or bus, then you won’t have to worry as much when it comes to taking CBD with you. However, as an extra cautionary step, you should double-check the CBD oil possession laws of both the state you’re traveling to and the state you’re traveling from. If your trip involves driving through multiple states, you may also want to check the CBD laws for those states as well, as every state is different.
Alternative Methods To Tavel With CBD
If you are concerned about traveling with your CBD, you can always use alternative methods to get your CBD where it needs to go. Many people choose to ship their CBD to their travel destination in order to avoid any hassles. Now, you should always confirm that CBD is legal in the state you are shipping to before shipping it, to avoid potential fines and legal issues.
