Travel Smart: TSA & CBD/Edible Guidelines

TSA Checks: Can Traveling with Cannabis Ruin Your Trip?

When traveling with edibles and CBD products, you must be aware of Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations. According to the TSA, travel with marijuana and certain cannabis-infused products, including some cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal. If the product contains more than 0.3 percent THC by weight it is illegal under federal law.   Generally, TSA officers are not specifically searching for marijuana or other illegal drugs. However, if they see any substances they suspect are a violation of law, they are required to report it. At that point, its up to the local, state, or federal authorities. For CBD products, as long as they contain less than 0.3% THC, they are generally allowed. However, it’s essential to check all laws for all departure and destination states, as state laws can vary.

In summary, while you may travel with edibles and CBD products that comply with regulations, there is still a risk if the products are suspected to violate state or federal laws. Ultimately, the decision as to whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint is up to the TSA officer. Researching and ensuring compliance with all relevant laws is always best before traveling with such products.

Travel with Edibles and CBD: Is There a Difference Between Domestic and International Flights? 

Yes, there is a significant difference between domestic and international flights when you travel with edibles and CBD products.

Domestic flights

For domestic flights within the United States, CBD products are allowed if they comply with the 2018 Farm Bill. They must be hemp-derived and can not contain more than 0.3% THC. TSA guidelines permit carrying these products in both carry-on and checked luggage. However, some states have specific restrictions on CBD edibles, so it’s important to note that you should also check the laws of the state you’re flying to.

International flights

Regarding international flights, the rules can vary significantly from one country to another. It’s crucial to understand that even if CBD is legal in your own country and the country you’re landing in, some countries do not differentiate between marijuana and hemp. Your CBD oil could be considered illegal in the country you’re visiting. Additionally, if you’re traveling across international borders and get caught with CBD oil, the best possible outcome could be confiscation of the product. You could sometimes face legal trouble in countries where travel with marijuana is not legal.

Therefore, we strongly recommend researching the laws of the destination country and any transit countries you may pass through when planning to travel internationally with CBD products. When you travel with edibles and CBD, it’s always safer to err on the side of caution to avoid any potential legal issues.
