Whether you travel regularly for business, pleasure, or for the holidays, it’s nice to know what you can take on the airplane. Many people take CBD because they find it beneficial to their lifestyle, so traveling with it is necessary. Can you take CBD on the plane?
There are so many regulations and guidelines to keep in mind when you’re traveling by air. Since the tragedy of 9.11, airlines have demanded compliance from travelers to ensure our overall safety as a nation. Think about it, it is only a handful of years ago that the TSA implemented taking shoes off while going through security. While a small inconvenience to us, these kinds of regulations help airline and airport professionals provide us with safe and efficient travel.
Now that you’ve purchased travel-size everything to take with you on your trip, what else should you be conscious of? Are your medications allowed to be in an unmarked weekly dispenser? Can your kids bring toys and electronics to keep them occupied while waiting for the flight? These kinds of questions are easily answered by your airlines customer service team. Most of them work around the clock so it is hard to find a time without an associate available.
However, CBD is a trickier topic. The legality of CBD alone is different in each state. So, you may run into some confusing faces when asking about traveling with your favorite cannabinoid. So, can you take CBD with you when flying?
Let’s find out before you go to the airport.
In short, yes.
While airports are under federal jurisdiction and officially standby their stance on traveling with THC, CBD is safe. CBD is derived from the hemp plant, which from a federal perspective is 100% legal. As a passenger, you have every right to travel with and take CBD on a plane.
If you rely on CBD for daily or as-needed relief, having the ability to travel with CBD can make the entire travel process easier.
While you can take CBD on a plane, it’s important to follow the TSA’s travel guidelines. Oftentimes, perfectly legal items are confiscated because they are in packaging that is too large.
According to the TSA’s Liquids Rule, substances and liquids must be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces. This container must also be carried in a quart-sized clear plastic bag.
As we’re sure you’ve all experienced, TSA agents will not budge on this rule. We’ve all had to trash shampoo because the container was too big. Don’t make the same mistake with your CBD.
While many people are familiar with CBD products, not everyone will be. Before traveling with CBD, read over the label on your CBD products. This helps you to anticipate any questions that airport security may have about your CBD. For obvious reasons, make sure your products say “Contains no THC,” or doesn’t mention THC at all.
Having CBD isolate products makes this process even easier. There’s no mention of THC or psychoactive effects on the label because CBD isolate products contains <0.3% – well under the legal limit.
Not only can you take CBD on a plane, but you should – CBD is an amazing travel companion.
Many individuals have a fear of flying, or experience stress when traveling or navigating airports. Sitting on an airplane also puts your body under a considerable amount of stress. You can experience muscle stiffness and are exposed to a variety of unfamiliar germs.
