Whether by car, train, or plane, if you're on the move this holiday season, ensure you understand the rules and regulations of traveling with CBD.
'Tis the season! Millions of people take the highways and skyways for holiday travel. And what better way to spread holiday cheer than with your trusty travel companion, CBD? But if you plan on journeying cross-state or even internationally this winter, it's vital to understand the dos and don'ts surrounding traveling with CBD.
Whether you're a seasoned CBD enthusiast or someone curious about its potential, this guide is your ticket to a more relaxed, enjoyable, and harmonious holiday season - the right (and regulated) way.
Why Travel with CBD?
From festive (or frantic) family gatherings to winter wonderland explorations, CBD can help make your travel venture a smooth one this season:
Mile High Regulations
Whether you’re heading to a snowy mountain retreat or embarking on a cross-country family visit, CBD can be a reliable companion for your journey. However, ensuring a stress-free experience requires a bit of planning and knowledge.
While many places around the world consider cannabis an illicit substance, CBD is legal in most countries. However, because CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant — and there are more than one species in this family — its legality isn’t unconditional everywhere.
What You Need to Know About Flights within the U.S. with CBD
According to current regulations, flying with CBD is permitted in the U.S. as long as the CBD is hemp-derived and contains less than 0.3% CBD, which is the legal requirement according to the 2018 Farm Bill. If taken as a carry-on item (not checked luggage), in line with TSA rules, all liquids must be less than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item.
What You Need to Know About International Flights with CBD
International rules and regulations on CBD are less clear, so if you’re looking to travel abroad with CBD oil, you’ll need to research the laws of the country you’re traveling to.
Below, mydosage.com lists the countries that have legalized hemp-derived CBD products. While it’s important to look into the laws of each country due to different regulations pertaining the amount of THC permitted to carry, the following countries are safe for traveling with CBD:
- Costa Rica
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- Puerto Rico
However, professionals strongly advise on the side of caution and leave products with any cannabinoids (including hemp-derived oils) at home, especially because some countries have much stricter drug laws.
What About Cruises?
Some cruise lines ban CBD oil altogether, so it’s best to contact the cruise line directly if you need to travel with CBD oil on your cruise. An important thing to remember is that there are security scanners as you board a cruise ship, so there’s no hiding CBD products.
