Flying with CBD: What is Currently Allowed?

The short answer: generally yes, as long as it is hemp-derived.TSA’s short answer to this question on Twitter is perhaps the most informative answer: “Products that contain hemp-derived CBD oil or are FDA-approved are generally legal & can fly.”

The longer answer is a bit more complicated!

TSA Guidelines for Traveling With CBD

According to the TSA’s official website, hemp-derived or FDA-approved CBD oil is generally allowed on planes. The product may contain no more than 0.3% THC, which is the legal requirement for CBD products. Since most commercial CBD products follow these strict guidelines, theoretically you should be able to fly with your CBD.

Of course, a TSA agent will not be able to immediately tell if a CBD product contains less than 0.3% THC. No on-site testing is done on the product. If you really want to fly with your CBD oils, CBD creams, or CBD gummies, but are worried they will be confiscated even though the guidelines have been followed, you can print off the official testing done by the company to prove the amount of THC. (All the products at Highline Wellness are independently tested and the results can be found on each product page.)

(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!)

At the end of the day, it’s up to the TSA agent’s discretion whether or not they’ll inspect and allow the product. TSA says that they do not actively search for drugs, but if they are discovered during screening they can turn it over to law enforcement officials.

So can you travel with CBD oil? Yes!

And can you travel with CBD cream? Also yes!

But can you travel with CBD gummies? Yes, of course!

This is only true as long as you follow all proper storage guidelines and amounts as described by the TSA, of course. When it comes to CBD gummies, the less than 0.3% THC rule applies on a dry weight basis, which means they’re perfectly legal to bring onto a flight in either carry-ons or checked bags. (Don’t forget to bring the test results that prove it, just to be safe!) And in terms of proper storage, our CBD Oils come in 1oz bottles and our CBD Cream comes in a 1.7oz jar, which means they both pass the 3.4oz rule – more on that below!

We’re not totally in the clear for a full return to pre-COVID traveling just yet, but with rising vaccination rates and declining hospital cases across the country, many people are slowly but surely getting back into the travel game. Naturally, the big question is this: what are the rules around traveling with CBD? And more specifically, what about flying with CBD oil?

The answer to whether or not you are allowed to fly with CBD might be a little more complicated than you’d expect, but we’re here to break it down for you and let you know what is currently allowed and in compliance with state and TSA guidelines.

The Stress Factor

Now that traveling is becoming a safe activity again, CBD can be even more of a help when it comes to managing the potential stress around the uncertainty of traveling. The statistics about prevention and protection from vaccines, masks, and social distancing speak for themselves, but it’s still perfectly natural to be on higher alert.

Whether you’re jetsetting or hitting the road this long weekend, for many of us, this is the first time we’ll be traveling in over a year! While we’re sure we’re all beyond ready to finally get out of town safely again, there may be some stress and anxiety that come along with it.

Enter CBD! Many people choose to fly with CBD because they might use it to calm normal flying nerves or just as a part of their daily routines. It stands to reason that CBD can help promote a sense of calmness when faced with the new anxieties of traveling in a world that has been largely grounded for the past year.

Some of our favorite CBD gummies and oils for daily stress management include our CBD Day Gummies, CBD Anytime Gummies, and CBD Day Oil. Not sure which type of CBD is best for your needs Take our quiz to find out!

It’s not just us, either! We were thrilled to find out that our CBD Anytime Gummies were chosen as one of Travel + Leisure’s most-loved products by readers, stating that these “calming cannabidiol chews are not worth missing.”

Traveling With CBD Oil Vs. CBD Gummies Vs. Vapes

When it comes to traveling with CBD oils or CBD gummies, the TSA does allow both in checked bags and carry-ons, as long as the CBD is hemp-derived and contains less than 0.3% THC, as is true of all our products. If you’re traveling with any electronic vape devices or vape batteries, you must know that they cannot be packed in checked bags. Due to the potential fire hazard of these items in the cargo hold, they must be stored in your carry-on bags.

When it comes to the actual vape liquids and vape oils, the classic liquids rule apply: they must be in travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or even smaller. They should also be easily accessible in order to facilitate the screening process! If you’re bringing more liquids or oils than can be fit into these small containers, your best bet is to pack it in your checked luggage. We mentioned this above as well, but the liquids rule applies to creams and gels, too – something to keep in mind when traveling with CBD topicals.

State Guidelines for Traveling With CBD

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.

Currently, Iowa, Idaho, and South Dakota are the only states in the entire US that do not allow CBD in any form. Other states, such as California, Michigan, and Georgia, do not allow CBD in food or beverages.

Traveling With CBD Internationally

We’ve discussed flying with CBD domestically, but what about traveling with CBD internationally?

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.

Tips for Flying with CBD

Bring a printed version of the ingredient list and independently tested analysis results, to prove that the product contains less than 0.3% THC. (Note: CBD Oil from Highline Wellness contains broad-spectrum CBD, which means it contains absolutely no THC.)

Research the states or countries you’ll be flying into, as their regulations may be stricter around CBD, regardless of the THC content, especially when it comes to international travel. Plan accordingly.

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!

Keep in mind that for the most up-to-date information on traveling with CBD, it’s always best to double check the medical marijuana page on the TSA website or even give your specific airline a call to find out their rules around flying with CBD oil, CBD cream, CBD gummies, or any other form of CBD!

Can You Take CBD Oil On A Plane?

Up until the decline in travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were frequently asked “can I take CBD oil on a plane?”.

When travel resumes, we expect this question to come up even more frequently, given increased need for help with anxiety and the need for sanitising products that also help protect the skin.

Fortunately, the answer is… in most cases yes, you can travel with CBD products, provided they meet a few important requirements! There are however some no-go zones where you should NEVER travel with CBD including places like the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Australia and Singapore.

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.

In the UK, CBD products must contain no THC or CBN (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.

CAN YOU TAKE CBD OIL ON A PLANE WITHIN EUROPE?

Industrial Hemp (Cannabis Sativa L) derived CBD like KLORIS is 100% legal in all EU states, 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). Make sure you’re carrying a brand that states the content on the label clearly. Ditch anything 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. 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.

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 between 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.

CHECK WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES BEFORE YOU TAKE CBD 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 Dubai or 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.
