Traveling With CBD: What to Know, What to Pack

In the spirit of sunny getaways, we’re recalibrating our travel essentials to focus on CBD products that help us navigate time zones, flying fears, problematic skin, and mid-flight aches. The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill allows the legal cultivation of industrial hemp and has opened doors for research efforts and product development in wellness, beauty, medicine, and beyond.

As of this writing, TSA.gov states, "Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law except for products that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by FDA."

So what exactly does that mean? In short, it means that marijuana and cannabis products derived from industrial hemp or containing less than 0.3% THC are approved for travel by the TSA. Every product in the Standard Dose assortment is derived from hemp and contains no more than 0.3% THC, so you can shop and travel confidently.  

With that good news, here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Take other rules into consideration when traveling, like keeping liquid carry-on items to 3.4oz and stowing them in a sealed bag.

2. Be sure to research your destination's laws around hemp-derived products and CBD, as some countries have not yet legalized hemp cannabidiol.

3. Know that you have options when it comes to the types of products you use. Patches are lightweight and are ideal for nervous flyers, facial serums offer hydrating benefits in-flight, and tinctures are available in half ounces for easy transport and dosing. 

Below, a few of our favorites for travel and why we love them:
