Can You Take CBD Oil On A Plane? 2022 Update

Now that international travel has resumed, we are seeing many people (especially those visiting our London CBD Store) ask if they can travel internationally with CBD oil even more frequently, especially given increased need for help with anxiety and the huge growth in the number of CBD users around the world. Flying with CBD oil is something many people are keen to be able to do!

Fortunately, the answer is… in most cases yes, you can travel with many CBD products, provided they meet a few important requirements! There are however some no-go zones where you should NEVER travel with CBD oil including places like China, Saudi Arabia and Singapore.

In some countries laws also vary depending on whether the CBD is ingestible (like a CBD oil) or topical (like a CBD Balm). For example, in the UAE topical CBD is permitted, but CBD oil is banned. In these instances, using products like CBD patches instead of CBD oil may be helpful.

Laws on Cannabis and related substances are changing quickly around the world, so our key advice is to always check with the embassy of the country you are traveling to or through to ensure you have the most up to date information for that destination.

To elaborate further, of course it all depends what type of CBD you have.

Under UK law, CBD products must contain less than 1mg THC or CBN, which is effectively none (it’s incorrect to say that products can contain less than 0.2% THC, that law relates to the source material not finished products). And you must be absolutely sure of this. If your CBD oil contains these banned cannabinoids, you’re holding a controlled substance, and that doesn’t tend to end well at airports.

All KLORIS CBD products are blended in the UK under strict controls to guarantee they contain no THC or CBN.

We’ve covered a few common flight zones below and how they fare in terms of carrying CBD oil and other CBD products on a plane.

CAN YOU TAKE CBD OIL ON A PLANE WITHIN EUROPE?

Industrial Hemp (Cannabis Sativa L) derived CBD like KLORIS is 100% legal in all European countries, provided it contains no THC – some countries allow low levels of THC, generally up to 0.2% but sometimes up to as much as 1% (in the case of Switzerland).

Always choose a reputable CBD company that is transparent about its products, especially when you’re flying with CBD oil. Make sure you’re carrying a brand that states the CBD content on the label and shows the source as hemp derived CBD clearly. Ditch any CBD products with no labels.

There are also still general rules around carrying liquids that you must be aware of. A 10ml bottle of KLORIS CBD Oil is under the limit for carry-on liquids.

TAKING CBD ON A PLANE IN THE USA

In the USA, CBD Oils come with and without THC. So it’s a little more complicated here. Although medical cannabis (with THC) is legal in some states in the USA, all airports are controlled under federal law. This means that if, for example, you bought CBD Oil with THC in Colorado, you can’t fly with it. That’s because under federal law THC is illegal in the USA.

However, the good news is that CBD has been removed from the controlled substances list by the DEA so if you’re flying with a THC-free CBD Oil made from hemp, like KLORIS CBD, you aren’t breaking any laws. It’s still going to be important that your product clearly states this. There’s also a chance that a misinformed officer at the airport doesn’t understand the difference between the two products. It won’t land you in jail, but it could slow you down and they may take it off you.

TAKING CBD ON A PLANE IN ASIA, AFRICA & REST OF WORLD

This is where things get really interesting. CBD laws vary considerably around the world and are often confused with cannabis laws originally intended for marijuana and cannabis oils, which don’t make much sense for hemp derived CBD products that aren’t intoxicating.

Take Thailand for example. There have been cases of people getting 5 years in a Thai jail for carrying substances that were legal in their home country, only to find they are a criminal when they land. Prescription drugs like Tramadol. Thailand has now legalised many CBD products but only those manufactured within Thailand, importation is still prohibited.

There was also a case of Mostafa Soliman, an America citizen who was imprisoned in Egypt in 2010 for importing organic hemp seed oil, used mostly in salads. If convicted he would have faced the death penalty. Thankfully he was released following protests.

Although these horror stories do exist, there are also plenty of people on TripAdvisor forums saying they’ve traveled happily across borders with a single bottle of CBD Oil in their hand luggage, still we can only suggest everyone follows whatever the local law is of their destination, especially when flying internationally.

CHECK WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES BEFORE YOU TAKE CBD OIL ON A PLANE IF YOU’RE NOT SURE

So we’ll end this article as we started and say if you’re not 100% sure, check with authorities in the country you are traveling to before you leave. Don’t forget to include any countries where you might be changing flights, although you’re not leaving the airport, you’re still landing there and subject to their laws.

If you’re flying via countries like Singapore, make sure you’re fully aware of the laws in those states before you take off. Another great tip is to ask your airline if you can take CBD Oil on the plane, as they may be able to help.

Yes, you can bring FDA-approved CBD oil on flights, TSA says

As multiple forms of medicine come to the forefront, here’s what you need to know about CBD oil that is helping multiple people’s ailments.

Listen up, fliers. You can now bring your CBD oil on an airplane.

The Transportation Security Administration recently updated its medical marijuana policy to allow fliers to bring FDA-approved products and medications that contain hemp-derived cannabidoil, more commonly known as CBD, with them when they fly.

CBD products have become a rapidly growing trend across the nation. Some call it a medical miracle, while others condemn it because of its association with marijuana — CBD is drawn from hemp, and both hemp and marijuana are derived from the plant cannabis sativa.

TSA’s recent change was made in compliance with the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, which removed FDA-approved hemp and cannabis derivatives with “extremely low” levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly known as THC, from the Controlled Substances Act. For hemp-derived CBD products to be legal under the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, they must contain less than 0.3% of THC, the compound found in marijuana that creates a high.

As long as a product is approved by the FDA and meets that THC threshold, it’s not considered an illegal substance under federal law, which means it’s legal to own, manufacture and sell CBD products.

“TSA was made aware of an FDA-approved drug that contains CBD oil for children who experience seizures from pediatric epilepsy,” TSA regional spokesperson Mark Howell said in a statement. “To avoid confusion as to whether families can travel with this drug, TSA immediately updated TSA.gov once we became aware of the issue.”

Keep in mind that the possession of marijuana, certain cannabis-infused products and some CBD oils are still illegal under federal law, and TSA officers are required to report any suspicions of legal violations, the policy stated.

TSA officers were briefed on the updates, but because the update is new, some may not recognize the FDA-approved version of CBD products. Chances are, if you bought your CBD oil legally, it contains little-to-no THC because of the federal standards.

Typically, TSA officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs during screening because their function is to detect threats to passengers, however, if illegal drugs are found during a security screening, the matter will be referred to law enforcement.

The question of the legality of CBD oil and other hemp-based products has been in the national spotlight following the arrest of a great-grandmother for possessing CBD oil in Disney World, which she said was prescribed to her by a doctor.
