Flying the “Not So Friendly” Skies — Traveling Legally with CBD Hemp Flower

Traveling legally with CBD hemp flower may be more complicated than you think, particularly in some circumstances. With the successes of CBD oil treating anxiety, many are using it so their flying experience is more relaxed.

Many may wonder if CBD in whatever form of lotion, oil or infused gummies will TSA at airports challenge your right to have it in your possession. Unfortunately, an elderly woman at the Dallas/Fort Worth airport was arrested \’\’and spent two nights in jail when CBD oil was found in her carry-on luggage. To date TSA has loosened regulations because they have realized the harmlessness of it \’\’and that it is not marijuana.

CBD products made from hemp with less than 0.3% THC are legal on a federal basis even if you are travelling across state lines that still classify it as illegal.  The Farm Bill of 2018 legalized hemp \’\’and products made from it on a federal basis \’\’and most states fell in line with legalizing it in their state as well.

The TSA Updates Their Regulations

The TSA has recently updated their regulations to allow passengers to bring medical marijuana \’\’and hemp products with less that 0.3% THC on board.  Here is the problem with that. They will have no way to test your hemp product for the legal amount of THC. It is important that you carry documentation about the particular hemp product you have that states it is legal.

Traveling Legally with CBD Hemp Flower – What is at Stake?

TSA does their screenings with a focus on security \’\’and safety.  In other words, they are not sniffing our marijuana or other illegal drugs. But what may happen in the course of scanning luggage, they may see something that appears to be marijuana so illegal.  It is at that point that the TSA officers will refer the matter to law enforcement \’\’and they will proceed with whatever they have to do.

Another point here is that if TSA is using scent dogs, they are trained to smell terpenes, which as we know are abundant in CBD hemp flowers.  If you are only packing CBD oil or CBD oil infused products they the dogs will not pick up on the scent since the terpene levels are low in those products.

However, if you do decide to take CBD hemp flower to gr\’\’andma’s house for Christmas, you must have the hemp flower nugs in the original package with the testing report written on the package.  The abundant rich aromatic terpenes very possibly will attract the drug-sniffing dog.

Traveling Legally with CBD Hemp Flower – The Proof is in the Package

If you have decided to take CBD hemp flower nugs to gr\’\’andma’s house for Christmas, be sure \’\’and leave it in its original package so that there is proof that the nugs are not marijuana \’\’and that they have 0.3% or less THC. That information needs to be printed on the original package. Do not put it in a ziplock bag for the trip, because in the case it shows up on their scan, neither they nor you will be able to declare your “0.3% THC or less” product.

What Exactly is CBD, Just So You Know

CBD is nonintoxicating, does not give a psychoactive high \’\’and even though it is found in cannabis marijuana \’\’and cannabis hemp, it is extracted by \’\’and large from hemp because it is found in much greater percentage in hemp.  The CBD oil from hemp or from marijuana has 0.3% THC or less in it. Some feel that if it is extracted from marijuana, it will naturally have a higher percentage of THC. That has not been proven true but even so some states require CBD be extracted only from hemp to be legal.

Traveling Legally with CBD Hemp Flower – Safe Guards

CBD oils derived from marijuana are still illegal in some states. Because of this, it is not recommended to take that across state borders. If for some reason, you prefer to take CBD extracted from the marijuana, that is fine. However, make sure that when you are planning a trip, you arm yourself with the safest product. In this case the safest must read on the label that it is from hemp.

Traveling with CBD Hemp Flower — The Benefits of CBD

CBD oil has many uses. It can help travelers regulate their body’s organs, immune system, \’\’and neurotransmitter signaling systems.  It also can help alleviate symptoms of jet lag, anxiousness, \’\’and sleeplessness.

For travelers, CBD oil is very beneficial for long flights to decrease stiffness for sitting so long.  It also helps induce better sleep during the flight \’\’and to decrease anxiety if you have issues with that.  Some travelers have even been able to replace a pharmaceutical with CBD oil, CBD-infused gummies, CBD oil capsules or CBD mints.
