Flying with CBD in the US

Cannabis Plant

Is CBD legal in the state you are flying to?

Despite the 2018 Farm Bill making hemp and CBD legal on Federal Level, individual states can elect to make the sale and possession of CBD illegal.

Statement from TSA website:

“Possession of marijuana and cannabis infused products, such as Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, is illegal under federal law…. TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs, but in the event a substance that appears to be marijuana or a cannabis infused product is observed during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.”

At federal level, the following applies:

  • Anything with more than a 0.3% THC level is classified as marijuana (illegal at a federal level, no matter the state)
  • If the product does not explicitly state its THC content, it will be seized
  • If a bottle is already open it may be confiscated by TSA due to the risk that the contents may have been substituted for more potent contents

Make sure that you do your research ahead of time to know the laws of the state you are travelling to - and with regards to travelling with CBD oil, we’ve done the research for you.
