Flying with CBD. Air travel and TSA rules for CBD

Traveling with CBD

Between checking in your luggage, rushing to the terminal, and getting through airport security, air-travel can be extremely stressful.  A lot of people nowadays use CBD for stress and anxiety. CBD seems like a logical solution to the stress associated with flying. Our customers often ask “can I take CBD on an airplane?”

In short, the answer is yes.

Flying with CBD - TSA stance on legality

The TSA’s stance on flying with CBD

According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), “Products/medications that contain hemp-derived CBD or are approved by the FDA are legal as long as it is produced within the regulations defined by the law under the Agriculture Improvement Act 2018.”Source  What this means for those using Hempstrax CBD products is that your tincture is clear for take-off.

As with anything else, there are of course rules and regulations that apply.  According to the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, CBD products derived from hemp are perfectly legal as long as the THC content is .3% or lower.  Make sure to always get your CBD products from a reputable source that is transparent with Certificates of Analysis.

Purchase your CBD from a reliable source with lab testing

Before you prepare for take-off, don’t forget to verify you are getting your CBD products from a reliable source.  All Hempstrax and OC Wellness Solutions products are always verified and 100% airport friendly.  Just make sure you are following the guidelines pertaining to liquid. TSA requires all liquids be less than 3.4 oz.  The only product that would apply to is our 4 oz salves. Just for the trip, grab a 2 oz salve and you will be good to go.  No need to worry about anxiety on the flight, and aches and pain won’t put a damper on your trip.  All you have to do is to fasten your seat belt and enjoy the flight.
