  • Travelling with CBD

    "This week, TSA changed its policy on CBD oil in a major way, now explicitly allowing travelers to pack hemp-derived CBD oil (and any FDA-approved medical marijuana) in a carry-on and checked bag for the very first time:

    Also good news for some CBD oil users: as of December 2018, hemp was legalized under the Farm Bill. With recent changes by the TSA, you’re now allowed to freely travel with CBD oil derived from hemp, which was unclear prior to the update on its website. According to a statement by the TSA provided to Marijuana Movement, this update was prompted by a need to accommodate those individuals that travel with Epidiolex, a drug that is used to treat epilepsy in children and contains CBD oil.

    Traveling with CBD oil derived from marijuana, however, remains illegal. (The content of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is the decisive factor, here. Hemp generally contains much less THC than marijuana, which played a role in its legalization last year.)"

    How to stay out of trouble
    • When traveling with hemp-derived CBD, research your product’s certificate of analysis and print out the lab report that will confirm its THC content. If you run into trouble, you can provide this to a TSA agent or officer.
    • If you’re headed on an interstate road trip and pass through a state where cannabis use is not legalized, you are still subject to that state’s criminal laws.
    • If you’re traveling overseas, it’s generally not recommended to bring CBD oil. Both hemp and marijuana may be more heavily regulated at your destination and this can result in greater penalties.
    And if you want your CBD oil to ease your flying anxiety, try taking it beforehand. Or find and research a dispensary at your destination that might have your preferred oil in stock.

    I think the best way to travel with CBD would be to leave the safety packaging on if you're able to.
    This would help prove to them that it's infact what is on the label, and something different hasn't been added.
