Can You Fly With CBD Oil?

Is travel on your agenda this fall? Are you wondering, “can you fly with CBD oil?” Because travel can be fraught with stress and hassle, some of our members have been wondering if they can bring their trusted Equilibria CBD products with them when they fly. The short answer? It depends on where you’re going. Because laws and regulations vary from place to place, it’s important to know whether or not you can fly with CBD oil depending on your destination and anywhere you might stop on the way there or back.


Let’s take a look at some of the factors that will help you decide if you should pack your Equilibria products for your next travel adventure.


Can you fly with CBD oil? Here’s what you should know


CBD is federally legal in the U.S.

Can you fly with CBD oil?If you’re traveling only within the United States, you’re allowed to fly with your CBD products, provided they meet certain criteria. Hemp-derived CBD like the kind in Equilibria’s products has been federally legal in the U.S. since 2018. This is because of the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. It’s important to note that federal legality of CBD has very specific guidelines. Namely, that the CBD must be hemp-derived and must contain less than 0.3% THC, such as the CBD found in your favorite Equilibria products. 


TSA guidelines indicate that hemp-derived CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC, such as Equilibria’s CBD, are permitted for air travel within the United States. Size restrictions for carry-on items as well as other TSA guidelines still apply, so make sure that your items are in compliance with all TSA rules. For added peace of mind, all Equilibria products have available Certificates of Analysis. These lab results include THC levels, indicating exactly what’s in our products. 


Check local laws when traveling internationally

While flying with CBD within the U.S. is fairly straightforward, traveling internationally is a bit more complicated. Many destinations around the world have strict regulations about cannabis products. Many also don’t differentiate between hemp-derived CBD and other cannabis products not derived from hemp or ones containing higher levels of THC. Your best bet is always to thoroughly research the local laws of your destination (and anywhere you may pass through during travel). Make certain before you begin traveling that you’re clear on what’s allowed and what isn’t, so your travels can be as stress-free as possible.


CBD can help take the stress out of travel
