First off, it’s important to note that we are only talking about CBD (Cannabidiol). True, this is hemp, but Cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis (derived from the stalk of the male marijuana plant. It doesn’t have any THC (which gives you that that high). Many people swear by CBD products for health and wellbeing.
What’s in Your CBD?
Know what is in your products. In 2018 the US passed the Farm Bill which made CBD legal across the country, in every state and removed it from the TSA’s list of banned substances. So as long as your item is THC-free, you can legally travel with it all over the country and across state lines.. *as of this writing on domestic flights in the United States, you can travel with CBD oil and other cannabidiol products if the THC content is below 0.3 percent. If the THC is above 0.3 percent it is illegal under federal law
If you’re traveling internationally, however, know that the rules and laws vary quite differently from country to country. Before you pack that bag, check on the laws of whichever foreign country you are traveling to. The laws are constantly changing so best to check just before you travel. With cruise ships, consider contacting the cruise line directly for the most accurate information on what is and isn’t allowed onboard.
