The Question: According to the TSA Regulations, how can we fly with our CBD?
Given CBD’s legal ambiguity as a substance and popularity as a product, there’s been a lot of uncertainty surrounding how it’s perceived by airlines and border agents. The TSA still recognizes it as a controlled substance, bunched in with marijuana. Regardless of cannabis’ rise to legality in some states, flying with CBD oil has been banned outright.
A Summary of Flying with CBD oil
- Although CBD is considered a legal substance in most states, the TSA lists it as a banned substance along with marijuana, and flying with CBD oil is prohibited
- Flying with oils is permissible in your carry-on in quantities less than 3.4 oz–but CBD is technically not permitted
- Vape pens are permitted, but absolutely no substances, including medical marijuana and CBD, are permitted
- The United States did not always outlaw cannabis products, and progress is being made to move them back into legality through the 2018 Farm Bill
- Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson saw the usefulness of hemp and grew it on their own properties (we just thought that was so cool you ought to know)
Is Flying With CBD Illegal?
The TSA’s website is very clear: “Possession of marijuana and cannabis-infused products, such as Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, is illegal under federal law.”
So what does that mean? Well, it means quite simply, they don’t want you flying with CBD oil. The TSA is a federal agency and by their standards, CBD is considered part of the cannabis plant and is therefore not allowed on planes.
The good news is that this is subject to change. 2018 sparked the beginning of the end for cannabis prohibition and hemp is the first to be set free. The House of Representatives approved the bill which the Senate then signed stating that, among other things, hemp is nationally recognized as a legal crop.
