Hemp derivatives contain little to no tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana that produces a high.
The TSA did not offer any other details on other CBD oil that its website says is allowed on flights now.
All forms of marijuana were previously prohibited in both checked and carry-on bags. But Sunday, the agency updated TSA.gov to reflect new regulations that allow FDA-approved medical marijuana and products that contain hemp-derived CBD oil. The CBD oil is allowed “as long as it is produced within the regulations defined by the law” under the 2018 Farm Bill, which federally legalized hemp and hemp derivatives. The development was first reported by Marijuana Moment on Monday.
The change was prompted by the only Food and Drug Administration-approved drug that contains CBD oil, Epidiolex, which is used to treat seizures in children with epilepsy, the TSA said.
But can you travel with CBD gummies? Yes, of course!
So can you travel with CBD oil? Yes!
The longer answer is a bit more complicated!
Traveling With CBD Oil Vs. CBD Gummies Vs. Vapes
International rules and regulations on CBD are much less clear cut than domestic traveling with CBD, so the best course of action is to do your own research into the laws of the country you’re planning to visit. That being said, it’s best to be as cautious as possible when it comes to international travel as there is a great variance among drug laws from country to country.
However, you also have to take into account what state lines you will be crossing. CBD is still illegal in some states, so depending on where you are flying to and from, you might not be able to legally hold any form of CBD, regardless of its THC content. In this case, if you don’t want to risk your CBD being confiscated, it might be better to leave it at home.
TSA Guidelines for Traveling With CBD
Plan to buy CBD when at your final destination, if it’s legal. Alternatively, you could ship your favorite CBD brand to your final destination so it’s there when you arrive!
(By the way, did you know the TSA actually has an entire section called “What Can I Bring?” It’s very specific, from bug spray to blenders and everything in between!)
That’s the copy and paste answer that the TSA is giving these days for CBD oil.
When you are flying federal law applies, even if you are not leaving your state.
If you are traveling with CBD products internationally then you need to check the laws for your destination country.
The Transportation Security Administration is the organization that stops passengers from taking things on to planes. They run the security checkpoint where your carry-on luggage is screened and they also screen checked luggage behind the scenes.
Flying Internationally With CBD Oil Or Other Cannabidiol Products
@AskTSA on Twitter
Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law except for products that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by FDA. TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law to local, state or federal authorities.
Usually the TSA are very good at providing answers on Twitter.
TSA CBD Oil Rules & Regulations
you are not permitted to pack the vape pen in your checked bag. This is because of the risk that the battery can catch fire. Vaping devices, including those being used for CBD vaping, are required to be packed in carry-on bags.
Here is what they say about medical marijuana.
