Traveling with CBD During the Holidays

When it comes to CBD, it is either derived from hemp, which is legal to bring across state lines, or it is derived from marijuana. If you have CBD that has been derived from marijuana, then the legality of it differs by state and it is not recommended that you bring it across state lines (states that do not allow CBD are Idaho, Nebraska and South Dakota).

This is the basic rule when it comes to gummies, oils, and more.

The TSA’s official site says that CBD oils are illegal under federal law. Products carried through airports should contain no more than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. So, according to the TSA, you can travel with CBD if the THC content is under the 0.3% threshold as long as you’re under the 3 oz limit. The issue isn’t usually federal though, if you land in a state that has tighter rules when it comes to the THC content of CBD oils.

If you’re needing to travel with anti-anxiety assistance, our best recommendation would be to make sure that you travel with a product that was obtained from industrial hemp and contains less than 0.3% of THC.

We recommend contacting your airline and ask for their policy on CBD/THC.

Can you bring CBD on a plane?

Generally, yes, you can bring CBD on a plane so long as the THC content is under that magic 0.3 percent. If you’re carrying a liquid or cream form of CBD, it must be less than 3 oz if you want to take it in your carry-on. If you’re traveling with a CBD vape pen, then it can only go in your carry-on, not your checked baggage.

When traveling, know the state laws for your destination and understand that, ultimately, it’s up to the TSA officer to let you through with CBD. Sometimes they get it wrong, and will confiscate your CBD. A handful of states only allow CBD for medicinal use.

Laws regarding CBD are constantly changing, so it’s important to check before you depart to determine whether your destination allows it. CBD is illegal in many countries including: Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia, Denmark, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Cambodia, China, Myanmar, Laos, Singapore, Vietnam, and pretty much all countries in Africa (except South Africa) and Middle East (except Israel).
