Can You Travel with CBD? Here's the Only Guide You'll Need

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:

  • Stress Reduction: Traveling during the holidays can be anxiety-inducing, with crowded airports, traffic jams, and the pressure of gift-giving. CBD is known for its potential to reduce stress and anxiety, helping you stay calm during the chaos.
  • Improved Sleep: Many people struggle with sleep disruptions during travel, especially when adjusting to different time zones. CBD may help regulate sleep patterns and improve the quality of your rest, ensuring you're well-rested for holiday festivities.
  • Pain Relief: Long flights or car rides can lead to discomfort and muscle tension. CBD's anti-inflammatory properties can help alleviate pain, making your journey more comfortable.
  • Mood Regulation: The holidays are a time for joy, but they can also be emotionally challenging for some. CBD may positively impact mood and overall well-being, helping you maintain a cheerful spirit throughout your travels.

    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, 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:

    • Argentina
    • Austria
    • Belgium
    • Belize
    • Bulgaria
    • Canada
    • Chile
    • China
    • Colombia
    • Costa Rica
    • Croatia
    • Cyprus
    • Czech Republic
    • Denmark
    • Estonia
    • Finland
    • France
    • Georgia
    • Germany
    • Greece
    • Guam
    • Guatemala
    • Hong Kong
    • Hungary
    • Iceland
    • India
    • Ireland
    • Italy
    • Latvia
    • Lithuania
    • Luxembourg

    • Norway
    • Peru
    • Poland
    • Portugal
    • Puerto Rico
    • Romania
    • Russia
    • Slovakia

    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.

    Additional CBD Travel Tips

  • Check Local Laws: Research the CBD laws at your travel destination and any states or countries you'll be passing through. Laws can vary, so ensure your CBD is legal in those areas.
  • Pack Securely: To prevent leakage, place your CBD products in a sealed, leak-proof bag or container. Keeping them in their original packaging can also be helpful.
  • Know TSA Guidelines: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) permits hemp-derived CBD on domestic flights within the United States. Keep your CBD in your carry-on bag, and have the CoA on hand for potential inspections. 
  • Only Bring What’s Necessary: While it's crucial to have enough CBD for your trip, avoid carrying excessive amounts, as it might raise suspicion. Stick to a reasonable supply for your holiday stay.
  • Be Informed and Transparent: If questioned by law enforcement or security personnel, stay calm and be ready to explain CBD's legality under federal law. Having the CoA handy can be valuable in such situations.
  • Choose Reputable Products: Opt for high-quality CBD products from trusted brands. Look for a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) from an independent lab to verify the product's cannabinoid content, including THC levels.

    Final Thoughts 

    As you prepare for your holiday travels, remember that CBD can be a trusty sidekick, helping you navigate the bustling airports, long road trips, and the occasional family gatherings with a sense of serenity. But be sure to take a few steps before bringing it along.

    Always purchase CBD from a reputable brand that clearly indicates the amount of THC present to avoid issues while traveling. Have the product’s COA on hand to show TSA workers who might ask about your CBD.

    Also, check state and country cannabis and CBD laws before taking CBD with you on your next trip.
