If you have a summer vacation on the horizon, you may be wondering if you can fly with your CBD products. While hemp-derived CBD is legal under federal law, flying with CBD isn't always straightforward. Read on for everything you need to know about flying with CBD to comply with Transportation Security Administration (TSA) guidelines.
Can I fly with CBD?
Within the U.S., you can fly with CBD products as long as the THC content is under that magic 0.3 percent (yes, all of our products meet this requirement!). However, TSA rules still apply, in that any liquids (like CBD oil) must be less than three ounces if you want to put them in your carryon.
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. The best rule of thumb when traveling with CBD is to research whether your destination (and any countries or states you are traveling through to get to your destination) allows CBD. Make sure the CBD products you bring with you are in their original packaging and clearly labeled. It also helps to print off your product's test results to prove that it meets the legal THC limits.
Traveling abroad with CBD can be a little trickier, so always check the laws before departure. If you're not sure, it's best to leave your CBD behind.
For the most part, TSA agents are not very interested in your CBD - they are far more concerned about items that threaten airline safety. If you follow these guidelines, you shouldn't run into any trouble. Be discreet, and put your CBD in your checked luggage if you don't need to have it with you on the plane.
