Traveling With CBD Oil

Traveling With CBD Oil

For those who struggle with anxiety due to travel, whether it be planes or cruise liners, CBD oil might be the perfect product for you. With there being so many laws in place when it comes to traveling, especially flying, it can be confusing to understand what is and what isn’t allowed. Here is everything you need to know about traveling with CBD. 


Why Travel With CBD?

According to Live Science, CBD can help fight anxiety. This report is based on the findings at the University of Nottingham, in the United Kingdom. Aviophobia, the fear of flying, is perhaps the most prolific case of anxious behavior during flight. With being thousands of feet up in the air, traveling at hundreds of miles per hour, all while not having any control of the plane itself, it’s no surprise this is a widespread issue.  

The National Institute of Mental Health Association has previously stated that 6.5% of the U.S’s population suffers from some sort of aviophobia. While this might seem like a small number, it represents more than 21 million Americans. 

Even if you don’t get anxious when you fly or travel, CBD can still be a great carry-on. Whether you are just looking to relax, or take a nap on a long flight without taking a prescription drug, the usefulness of CBD cannot be overstated.


Travel Laws To Keep In Mind 

To discuss the travel laws around CBD, we first need to discuss the laws pertaining to THC. Marijuana, even though it is legal in multiple states, is never allowed on planes. This is due to the TSA acting within federal guidelines, not ones written by each state. 

So how does CBD compare to THC when it comes to traveling? 

Tasty Drops Hemp Oil

CBD derived from hemp is exempt, given the amount of THC content found within it is 0.3% or less. Both the DEA and FDA do not consider CBD with this chemical makeup to be harmful to passengers to travel with.  

It is important to keep in mind CBD sold in dispensaries is usually derived from marijuana, not hemp, which changes the overall amount of THC found. Tasty Hemp Oil products are all 100% derived from hemp, meaning you will not need to worry about this as our products are all below .3% THC content. 

If you are planning on bringing a CBD tincture as a carry-on, remember that all liquids must be under 3.4 ounces in volume. With this in mind, we can conclude that our tinctures can be taken as a carry-on.


International Travel 

With international laws differing greatly when it comes to both CBD and THC, we do not advise to travel internationally with our products without reading through legislation that is unique to your destination. As great as CBD can help with aviophobia, it isn’t worth being arrested for!  


What To Bring 

When it comes to our products, we recommend traveling with the Tasty Drops or gummies. While the chocolates are very delicious, the risk of getting crushed or even melting while traveling is too real. Our Tasty Drops come in small tinctures while our gummies are packaged in plastic containers, making them very compact and portable.
