Here is What you need to know about travel with CBD. The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 made hemp-derived CBD products lawful on a federal level. It also removed hemp from Schedule I and reclassified it as a “agricultural commodity.” If your CBD is derived from hemp, it is lawful on a federal level. The CBD must contain less than.3% THC. CBD produced from hemp can be carried freely across state borders as long as it fits the bill’s criteria.
Because CBD oil is popular around the world, it’s no surprise that many are wondering if they can travel with CBD products.
Can You Fly Domestically With CBD?
It is legal to fly with CBD products. You won’t get arrested if you have a bottle of hemp extract on you. But be aware that not all CBD oils are made equal. Despite 17 states legalizing recreational marijuana usage, marijuana-derived CBD oils remain illegal at the federal level. You should not fly with marijuana-derived CBD oil, even across states.
As of 2022, it is completely illegal in Idaho (only lawful with 0 THC and from mature stalks of plants), Nebraska, and South Dakota. Furthermore, it is only authorized for therapeutic use in Alabama (must have less than.3% THC), Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee (must include less than.6% THC), Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
After years of prohibiting all forms of cannabis products, the TSA recently changed its cannabis policy. You may fly with CBD oil as long as you can verify that it contains 0.3% THC or less. You won’t be harassed at the airport as long as your product comes with a certified certificate of analysis certifying its purity and THC level.
International Travel With CBD
CBD restrictions for international flights vary by country. Research CBD laws in your destination country, including any scheduled stopovers, before taking CBD on a plane. Most legal experts advise avoiding travelling with CBD products. Particularly if your destination country has strict cannabis restrictions.
It is never a good idea to get arrested in a foreign nation. Because vaping isn’t permitted on airlines, it’s generally best not to take it in your carry on luggage. Checked baggage is the preferred method for transporting CBD oil on an aircraft. Just make sure to pack your CBD carefully so that it can be readily checked by airport security. You should also bring the certificate of analysis and keep it on hand in case the authorities want verification of its authenticity.
Traveling With Marijuana Derived Products
THC levels greater than 0.3% manufactured from budding cannabis plants is classified as a marijuana product. And transporting it is a federal felony. Marijuana normally contains 5-30% THC, which can cause intoxication.
Marijuana strains are produced for medical or recreational purposes, and they are only available in states where marijuana is legal. Traveling with CBD oil derived from marijuana is still prohibited until federal legalization is achieved.
