Perhaps you’re a runner who relies on CBD candies for post-workout recovery or a mother who relies on CBD oil to deal with everyday stress. You’re planning a trip and aren’t sure if it’s OK to bring your CBD products on the plane with you. Is this anything that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) looks for? Are the rules and regulations in other states or nations different? We’ll answer these and other questions in the sections below.

Understanding how CBD products are made
It’s crucial to understand the content of various hemp-derived products like full-spectrum CBD oils, lotions, and gummies before we discuss about bringing CBD onboard an airline. Full-spectrum CBD products, such as Charlotte’s Web CBD oil, contain all of the naturally occurring phytocannabinoids found in hemp plants, as well as a trace amount of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Since the passage of the Farm Bill in 2018, the federally regulated level of THC in hemp farmed in the United States has been less than 0.3 percent, which is insufficient to cause an intoxicating effect. This regulation affects whether or not you can bring CBD products with you on a plane.

Is it possible to fly within the United States with CBD products?
Let’s talk about whether you can travel with CBD products now that you know what they’re made of. Yes, you can bring hemp-derived CBD products on a plane while flying within the United States. Let’s have a look at why it is:
TSA personnel are looking for anything that isn’t allowed in the cabin during air travel, from guns and explosives to liquids purchased outside the security gates, when conducting checks. However, CBD is not included in this because of the Hemp Bill. “Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including certain Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain unlawful under federal law,” according to the TSA website, “except for items that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis or those are FDA approved.” Meaning, if your CBD products, like all Charlotte’s Web products, adhere to the Hemp Bill’s THC level, it’s entirely legal to bring them on a plane.

To be safe, check the certificate of analysis for your CBD products to ensure that they contain less than 0.3 percent THC. If you have difficulties reading the COA, contact customer care for assistance. Charlotte’s Web products all meet the THC content requirement of less than 0.3 percent.
If the product will be carried on, it must be less than 3.4 ounces of liquid, ointment, cream, or balm, be in a shatter-proof container, and be included in the transparent quart-size bag of such things that you take out of your suitcase to put through the TSA screening machine. In this scenario, CBD gummies and capsules, such as Charlotte’s Web CBD gummies and capsules, may be more useful than CBD oils because they are packaged in plastic rather than glass.
Is it possible to travel overseas with CBD products?
Flying overseas with CBD is more difficult because restrictions on the amount of THC allowed (and product classifications) differ from country to country. “Professionals highly suggest erring on the side of caution and leaving products containing any cannabinoids (including hemp-derived oils) at home,” according to SmarterTravel, “especially because certain countries have far tougher drug laws.”
Various countries have different regulations.
CBD is prohibited in some nations. Others do it with the help of a prescription. A few countries allow THC levels higher than 0.3 percent (Italy, for example), while others allow no more than 0.2 percent THC (lower than the United States’ authorised amount) or none at all (the United Kingdom mandates 0 percent , for example). The following is a list of international regulations organised by country, as of September 2020.
What are the best CBD products for flying?
Let’s talk about the best CBD products to bring with you on a plane now that you know what can and can’t be carried on a plane:
Do you get anxiousness from time to time? It’s typical to be nervous about flying, or about travelling in general, because it necessitates leaving behind one’s home and routine. Calm Gummies, which contain CBD and lemon balm, may be of assistance.
Do you have a hard time falling asleep? We’re all affected by jet lag. Even if you’re in your normal time zone, sleeping on a strange bed, hearing different noises, or coping with an unusual amount of light in the room might disrupt your sleep when you’re on the road. Take, for example, CBD Sleep Gummies, which combine CBD with melatonin.
Do you have arthritis or back problems that cause you pain? Pain can be exacerbated by sitting in an aeroplane for a lengthy travel, sleeping in a new bed, and doing things you don’t normally do (such as wandering all over a city). Try CBDMEDICTM Arthritis Aches and Pain Relief Cream or CBDMEDICTM Back & Neck Pain Relief Ointment to relieve your aches and pains.
Do you work out when you’re travelling? Check out CBDMEDICTM Muscular & Joint Pain Treatment Ointment or the Active Sport Pain-Relief Cream for muscle pain relief. While Charlotte’s WebTM Recovery gummies can assist with exercise-induced inflammation, you should stick with them.
Do you have a dog with you on your trip? If you’re flying with a little dog in your lap, it can be a little nervous in its unfamiliar surroundings. CBD, valerian root, passionflower extract, and chamomile are all ingredients in Charlotte’s WebTM Calming Chews for Dogs, which can help relax your dog in stressful situations.…
