After its legalization in 2018, CBD rose to fame in a short span of time and being an easily available product in the stores across the country, almost everyone has heard of it. Even though there is no debate about the name it has among people, you cannot assume that everyone who has heard of CBD knows all of its crucial details. CBD laws are not the same across every part of the US, as individual states have different take on CBD, making things a bit more complicated when it comes to traveling with CBD.
Flying With CBD Oil That Has THC Content
After the legalization of CBD in 2018, the restrictions on traveling with CBD oil was lifted, but the Farm Bill clearly states that the legalization applies only to hemp CBD products that contain less than 0.3 % THC. Even minute increase in THC content from the specified limit will compromise the legal status of CBD and you will be denied the permission to travel with it.
CBD can also be derived from marijuana plant but traveling with marijuana CBD oil is illegal, as it will have high THC content. If a TSA agent or police officer finds out that you are carrying CBD and fail to distinguish if it is derived from hemp or marijuana, your journey might be delayed.
Traveling With CBD On Cruises
Some cruise lines strictly prohibit CBD oil on their ships and when it comes to using CBD oil on federal lands, you are not allowed to carry or use CBD oil in places like national parks even if the state has legalized the use of cannabis.
Staying Out Of Trouble
- If you are planning to travel with hemp-derived CBD, conduct a thorough research about your product’s certificate of analysis that gives the THC content and carry the printed lab report in your journey.
- If you are on a road trip across state borders, you will be subject to the criminal laws of the state you are in. Make sure you have quite a good understanding of the cannabis laws of the states that you will cross.
- While traveling overseas, it is recommended not to carry CBD oil because the hemp and marijuana might be heavily regulated in your destination and you may end up in trouble.
CBD is not like a common grocery item or food stuff but is a medication prepared from hemp plants that belong to the cannabis family. Even though the farm bill has identified hemp as an agricultural product, the CBD industry is under strict regulations and CBD laws differ according to the state you are in. Make sure you do not put yourself in trouble by carrying CBD in your journey without educating yourself about the CBD laws of your destination.
