We get a lot of questions about CBD oil, but our most common question is this: “Is it legal to travel with CBD?” It’s a complicated topic, but luckily, the short answer is YES, you can travel with CBD.
Before you pack an extra carry-on stuffed to the brim with all of the best CBD products you can find, there are parameters you must double-check before you can comfortably settle in on your holiday jetliner. Below are a few things you need to know about the legality of CBD, and why you should pack a little for your trip back home this Thanksgiving.
What Do I Need to Know About Flying with CBD Products?
If you’re confused about whether or not CBD is legal, you’re not alone. It’s a messy issue that somehow seems to get even more muddled after more laws are passed, dividing state and federal regulations further.
The bottom line is this: When the Farm Bill passed in 2018, it declared CBD legal in all 50 states. Woohoo! Here’s the catch, though: to fully pass muster, the TSA states that the CBD must be derived from hemp (not marijuana) and it must contain no more than 0.3 percent THC. How can you be sure about the levels of THC in your CBD oil, or where it came from? While the label should be a good place to start, what you see is not always what you get. A recent study found that of 84 tested CBD products, only about 30% were labeled correctly. Fortunately, you can rest assured that all Ojai Energetics products are properly labeled. We promise that our CBD is 100% hemp-derived, with THC amounts well within the legal limit.
