CBD is becoming more and more popular as people discover its benefits. However, using CBD for any sort of relief means traveling with it as well. The question is, what are the rules for flying with CBD products? The quick answer is yes; you can fly with PlantMD products, but with some strings attached.
Flying with CBD products is allowed, but there are some things you should know about the rules for flying with CBD. Many aspects of life are altered when you are dealing with chronic conditions. We search, and we search for relief until we’ve finally found it.
But all of that searching means more of an attachment to the relief we eventually find. We can look at allergies as an example. Plenty of medicines claim to relieve allergy symptoms, no matter what the allergy may be. But one medication may work great for you yet do nothing for someone else.
Our bodies are similar, but no two are exactly alike. That means you will need to try a few different medications before you find the one that helps you with your allergies. You will then stick to the one that works after all of the efforts you put into finding it in the first place.
Then comes time to travel, and you must ensure that you have your allergy medicine with you because it works. In fact, it can be scary sometimes to travel without the medicine you know works. The same can be applied to CBD products.
Finding that CBD helps you with chronic pain means you will want to have CBD on hand at all times. But CBD is not as widely known as Zyrtec or Allegra. Flying with CBD products may not be exactly the same as flying with Allegra; is it possible? Yes, but there are some strings attached that you will need to know.
The first thing we need to know about flying with CBD products is that CBD is both locally and federally legal. The federally legal part is the most important part of this situation. For example, weed is legal in multiple states.
However, flying is seen as a federal territory, meaning that when you’re in the air, you’re in federal space, not local. This means that you cannot bring weed with you onto a plane because it is not federally legal. However, CBD is not weed and is federally legal as of the signing of the 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act.
Some CBD products do have THC, which might make one think that it is no longer federally legal. However, the Agricultural Improvement Act allows for .3 percent THC in CBD products which means it is still considered to be federally legal.
The problem lies in some states being slow to advance, like Idaho, where CBD is fully illegal unless it has 0 percent THC. You may end up dealing with local governments if you travel to Idaho, Nebraska, South Dakota, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, or Wyoming.
It is important to note that CBD is legal in all 50 states in one way or another. There are just specifics that differ. Be sure to check local laws in places you plan to travel to with CBD.
We already know that people will want to use CBD products for their ailments when they arrive at their destination. However, there are more reasons we all should be flying with CBD products. CBD can be used for anxiety which thousands of people suffer from when flying.
CBD can give those people a more relaxed experience in the air. CBD-infused lotions are also fantastic at relieving dry skin and inflammation in the joints. Both of those solutions will lead to a more comfortable experience as well.
There are enough reasons to travel with CBD more often than not. But it is important to ensure you follow all of the rules for traveling with supplements or medication. For example, the TSA states that medications are allowed without notification unless it is in liquid form.
Liquid medications, like PlantMD Revive Tinctures, are allowed in carry-on bags but no more than 3 ounces. You must also notify the TSA agent that you have the medication in your carry-on. Some states also have laws that require medications to be labeled as well.
