Can I Travel with CBD?

December 02, 2020

Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, CBD is a great addition to your toiletry bag. But if you’re traveling from one state to another, is it legal to take CBD with?

In short, yes, you can travel with CBD. However, there are certain circumstances where this is inadvisable. 

Here’s what you need to know about traveling with CBD in the United States.

Is CBD legal?

Yes!

The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp legal throughout the United States. This means that hemp-derived CBD is legal to buy, purchase, and use in every state. This also means that you’re allowed to travel from state to state with CBD. 

This is why CBD can be purchased from a company in one state and shipped to another. 

What the TSA says about traveling with CBD

If you’re traveling via plane, it’s important to note the TSA’s guidelines on CBD. 

The TSA website explains that you can carry CBD that is considered legal within the terms of the Farm Bill. In other words, CBD products that are derived from hemp and contain less than 0.3 percent THC - like our products - are legal to take on an airplane.

This was not always the case. In May 2019, the TSA drew a lot of criticism when a 71-year-old woman was arrested for carrying CBD at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. This happened despite the fact that CBD was legal at the time. Fortunately, the TSA has since changed their regulations.

Their website adds that the TSA also allows for FDA-approved medical marijuana to be taken on board. It also notes that “the final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.”

Traveling with CBD pre-rolls (hemp joints)

CBD pre-rolls, also known as hemp joints, consist of CBD-rich hemp. Because hemp is legal, CBD pre-rolls are legal

However, hemp joints still look and smell like cannabis joints. If you’re found with CBD pre-rolls, it will look like you’re in possession of cannabis. In that case, you can’t actually prove that your CBD pre-roll is hemp unless it’s tested in a lab. This sort of misunderstanding could lead to delays at the airport.

To avoid the hassle, it’s best not to travel with CBD pre-rolls, especially if you’re getting to your destination via plane. 

Traveling outside the United States with CBD

It’s not a great idea to travel internationally with CBD.

Many people take CBD along when traveling from the United States to other countries. However, this isn’t always advisable, especially if you’re traveling to a country where the laws on CBD and hemp are restrictive or unclear.

Too nervous to travel with CBD? That’s understandable. The good news is that you can purchase CBD once you get to your destination. We ship our products all over the US for free for orders over $45.

Travel wise, and travel safe!
