Flying with CBD
Can I Fly With CBD Oil?
Now that recreational marijuana is legal in a handful of states, people are starting to ask the question, “Can I Fly With CBD Oil?” The TSA has issued rather vague guidelines on what they will and won’t allow which obviously creates confusion, but the confusion isn’t around the dried flower. The question mark is about hemp oil and CBD extracts.
So can you bring CBD oil on planes? Follow these guidelines, and you’ll be flying high (but not stoned!) with hemp oil without issue.
Federal law on marijuana
The TSA is a federal agency, and airports are subject to federal laws. Even though recreational cannabis is legal in some states, marijuana is still federally prohibited. That’s why the TSA can stop you from attempting to travel with edibles, dried flower or other forms of cannabis. Again, that’s if you’re talking about marijuana or recreational cannabis. CBD oil or hemp oil is somewhat of an exception.
Federal law on CBD oil
If you travel with CBD oil that is derived from hemp with a THC content below 0.3%, you’re in the clear. The DEA and FDA don’t consider CBD that is made from hemp to be the same as psychoactive cannabis so long as the THC content in the CBD oil is below 0.3%. That’s why it’s so important that you buy from a reputable company that can provide a Certificate of Analysis from a reputable laboratory that outlines exactly what is in the product. If you buy hemp oil from a medical dispensary, that CBD oil is often derived from cannabis, not hemp, making it illegal under federal law.
What to look for in CBD oil products
The best thing to do is check your label. If your CBD oil says that it comes from industrial hemp, you’re very unlikely to have a problem.
