Can You Fly With CBD Oil?
The easy answer: As long as it’s based on cannabis, generally yes. TSA’s brief answer to Twitter’s question was probably the most responsive. “Products containing hemp-derived or FDA-approved CBD oil are generally legal and can be raw.” The long answer is a bit more complex.
TSA Guidelines for Traveling With CBD
According to the official TSA website, cannabis-derived or FDA-approved CBD oil is approved for aircraft use. This product must not contain more than 0.3% THC, which is the legal requirement for CBD products. Most standard CBD products follow these strict guidelines, so in theory, you should be able to travel with CBD. Of course, the TSA cannot verify that CBD products have less than 0.3% THC. The product has not been field-tested. If you want to travel with CBD oil, CBD cream, or CBD cleanser, but are concerned about being banned despite the directions, you can prove this. You can print the official THC test. (All Highline Wellness products are individually tested and results can be found on each product page.)
By the way, did you know that the TSA has a full section titled “What can I bring?” It’s very special. Bugs in the mixer and a little spray in between! Ultimately, product evaluation or approval depends on the TSA agent. According to the TSA, they aren’t actively looking for drugs, but they can turn them over to the police if found during testing.
- So, can you travel with CBD oil? Yes!
- And can you travel with CBD cream? Yes!
- But can you travel with CBD gum? Yes!
Of course, this only applies if you follow the TSA guidelines and follow all appropriate storage guidelines and values. For CBD chewing gum, the rule of less than 0.3 THC by dry weight applies. This means that it is perfectly legal when carrying or checking in hand luggage. (Don’t forget to come to see the test results to prove it!) For proper storage, CBD oil comes in a 1-ounce bottle and CBD cream comes in a bottle. 7 ounces, that is, both are standard 3.4 ounces.
The first thing to do when traveling to the CBD is to figure out what’s right for you and accept these options. Nationwide, TSA’s primary focus is on safety issues “designed to address potential risks to aircraft and passengers” and is generally legal for CBD cannabis. Products are not included. To ensure safety when traveling internationally, make sure our products are independently tested and do not contain free THC.
