Learn what cannabis products you can travel with and how to travel with them.
My most recent travel experience was not the best. There was an endless security line, a random full-body pat-down, a wailing toddler, and a mad dash to the gate. Add a few problems with our tickets, and we were completely exhausted by the time the fasten-seat-belt light flicked on.
I did learn a few valuable lessons from the experience. For one thing, I’m definitely bringing CBD gummies with me next time I travel to help me relax.
Wait, can I travel with cannabis?
Yes, you can travel domestically with cannabis products as long as they are federally legal. Sorry, marijuana products are not federally legal, so you’ll have to leave all your exciting new purchases in California. However, hemp products are federally legal, so they can be brought across the country.
It is important to note that traveling outside of the U.S. with cannabis can get tricky. Some countries ban all cannabis products without exception, including hemp products. Be sure to research the laws of the country you’re visiting beforehand and play it safe.
Choose the right products for on-the-go relief.
Keeping a few easy-to-use cannabis products on hand as you travel can be super helpful. Here are some recommendations:
- CBD Sleep Gummies. Nothing beats drifting off to sleep on an airplane and waking up just as you reach your destination. You fall asleep in one place, wake up somewhere else, all without being disturbed by crying babies or the kid repeatedly kicking the back of your seat. For natural help relaxing, falling asleep, and sleeping soundly, try these CBG + CBD Sleep Gummies.
- CBD Freeze Rollers. Traipsing all over the airport and then cramming yourself into a narrow plane seat for hours on end is a recipe for discomfort. Especially if you’ve got sore joints or an achy back to begin with. This CBD Roller is packed with pure CBD isolate to ease sore muscles and joints. And its mess-free application is ideal for obtaining targeted relief as you travel.
- Full-Spectrum CBD Drops. These CBD drops meet all of the requirements for travel. They’re less than 3.4 ounces, and they have less than 0.3 percent Delta-9 THC. They’re packed with beneficial cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and CBN, which have boosted benefits due to the entourage effect. Traveling is usually long and stressful. Full-spectrum CBD oil can help you relax and get in the right mindset for your impending vacation.
Follow TSA guidelines.
When you travel with cannabis products, take care to follow the do’s and don’ts of TSA guidelines.
When you’re traveling by plane, all liquids, creams, gels, aerosols, and pastes in your carry-on must be 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less. You can take as many as will fit in a resealable quart-sized bag. Although you don’t need to put them all in a single bag, doing so may expedite screening.
Make sure that the cannabis products you bring on board a plane are federally legal.
Since marijuana is still illegal under federal law, you cannot travel with marijuana products.
When you go through security, TSA agents will not be actively looking for cannabis products. They are focused on detecting threats to passengers. If they do find marijuana products, though, they may confiscate them or notify law enforcement. It is always best to err on the side of caution and only travel with federally legal hemp products.
Enjoy a smoother ride with cannabis.
If you’re planning on traveling anywhere in the country, the calming and restorative benefits of cannabis can make your trip smoother and more comfortable. If you’re traveling by plane, be sure to follow TSA guidelines, and you’re good to go.
