tsa cbd oil regulations

Recreational and medical marijuana is legal in some states, but the TSA has always been clear that flying with any form of marijuana was illegal. But that changed over the weekend, when the TSA quietly updated its “What can I bring?” page on medical marijuana to note that passengers can now fly with some forms of CBD oil and one hemp-derived medication approved by the FDA.

In the past, the TSA did not differentiate between marijuana and some hemp-derived products. Hemp derivatives contain little to no tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana that produces a high.

Products/medications that contain hemp-derived CBD or are approved by the FDA are legal as long as it is produced within the regulations defined by the law under the Agriculture Improvement Act 2018.

Yesterday on Twitter, the @AskTSA account advised a traveler that ” Products that contain hemp-derived CBD oil or are FDA-approved are generally legal & can fly.”

The TSA said the change was prompted by the only Food and Drug Administration-approved drug that contains CBD oil, Epidiolex, which is used to treat seizures in children with epilepsy.

When traveling with CBD products, be sure to check local and state laws where you are visiting. Although CBD products from hemp are federally legal, some states have specific laws regulating the possession and use of CBD. You can learn more about laws regarding CBD .

The Transportation Security Administration or TSA has language in its “What Can I Bring?” section of its website allowing for products containing hemp-derived CBD, and FDA-approved medications containing CBD, in both carry-on and checked luggage. This is the policy that answers any concerns you may have about flying with CBD oil products.

According to the official TSA regulations website, “Products/medications that contain hemp-derived CBD or are approved by the FDA are legal as long as it is produced within the regulations defined by the law under the Agriculture Improvement Act 2018”, confirming that CBD oil can be brought on a plane next time you fly.

The TSA limits the size of toiletries that can be taken in carry on luggage to 3.4 oz or 100 ml bottles or smaller. When flying, you simply need to place your CBD hemp oil products in the same one quart zip-top bag as your other bath and beauty products. This limited size only excludes a small handful Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s products.

Not only can you fly with CBD oil on planes, but with the exception of CBD vape products from Dixie Botanicals®, our products can all be used on planes as well. The calming effects of CBD can help take the stress out of flying and help you get comfortable, no matter how long the flight. The dry conditions in a plane can dry your skin and lips.

When shopping for CBD products , be careful to only purchase those that are derived from hemp and not marijuana. While marijuana products might be legal in your own state, CBD products made with marijuana contain too high a level of THC to be taken on an airplane or to other states.

This means that all hemp-derived products – like those in the Medical Marijuana, Inc. store – are allowed through TSA checkpoints and on planes. The TSA adjusted its policy to allow CBD products from hemp due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill (Agriculture Improvement Act 2018), which legalized commercial hemp products federally and removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act.
