Can I Travel With CBD?

Can I Travel With CBD?

Posted by Nature's Wealth on Jun 11th 2020

Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived products are now federally legal in all 50 states. CBD was once considered illegal because of it being a byproduct of the cannabis plant which contains THC, the compound associated with getting you “high.” As these legalities have always been confusing, it’s no wonder people are still hesitant to carry around CBD products - especially when traveling.

Because CBD is now legal under federal law, the TSA quietly revised their policies to announce that passengers are now able to carry “products that contain no more than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by the FDA.” This change was prompted by the only FDA approved drug that contains CBD oil, Epidiolex, which is used to treat seizures in children with epilepsy.

Because authorities still can’t tell the difference between CBD and THC products, we can imagine the process can still be a little tricky. In order to save yourself the stress of figuring out if your product is good enough to bring with you on your next trip, Nature’s Wealth recommends to always do your research before making any new hemp-derived purchases. To ensure you’re buying pure CBD, reputable sites will always have it clearly stated that their products have less than 0.3% THC with lab tests readily available for legitimacy.

So to conclude - any products/medications that contain less than 0.3% THC or approved by the FDA are acceptable to travel with stress-free on your next trip!
