Welcome back to our blog!
Today we will be discussing traveling with CBD, a frequently asked question and concern because of all the legality confusion... but don't worry! after reading this blog you and your furry friend will be all set to go!
CBD is a great option for keeping your pets stress free on a plane or road trip, but is it legal to bring into an airport? will you get pulled aside at the security checkpoint or even worse sent to that little room for questioning??
The bottom line is that it is legal to bring on a plane (or any transportation vehicle such as a bus or train) and by "it" we mean CBD derived from hemp which is what all of our products contain. In addition, because our products have less than 0.3% THC they are legal in all of the USA.
International laws for CBD vary per country so you will have to do your own research when traveling internationally.
Now let us discuss the nitty-gritty surrounding CBD and air travel.
Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law except for products that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by FDA. (See the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334.) TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law to local, state or federal authorities.
TSA’s screening procedures are focused on security and are designed to detect potential threats to aviation and passengers. Accordingly, TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs, but if any illegal substance is discovered during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.
In addition, according to the DEA and FDA your CBD must contain less than 0.3 percent THC to be approved for flying.
Additional steps you can take to make sure you will be all set for traveling with CBD
1. Bring documentation
To be safe and clear at security, you can print information from our website that states that the products contain less than 0.3% THC: such as lab certificates or product information that includes our brand name and THC content. With these documents you should be good to go!
2. Call the respective airline
You can also call your airline and ask if they themselves require any specific documentation regarding CBD oil.
3. TSA rules
Make sure you follow TSA's rule and make sure the CBD oil is in a container with less than 3 oz of liquid.
Whether you place your CBD oil in your carry on or your checked luggage make sure you always have documentation with you to prove the product has less than 0.3% THC.
CBD derived from hemp with less than 0.3% THC is completely legal. Know your rights and don't be scared to use them. All you need is proper documentation. Just like bringing a prescription medicine for your pet is completely legal, so is bringing CBD; an all natural, safe and side effect free supplement for pets!
