Summertime means travel. Whether you’re flocking to see family, taking a work trip, or squeezing in a much-needed vacation, you may be packing your bags and headed to an airport-near-you sometime soon. As you pack to leave, carefully collecting your toiletries, you may glance at your amber bottle of CBD and pause to wonder, can you fly with CBD oil?

The answer is finally and definitively yes.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has updated their guidelines so that it is now expressly legal to fly with hemp-derived CBD oil. This change comes following a headline-making report in May 2019 of a 71 year-old-grandmother who was hit with a felony charge at Dallas-Fort Worth airport for carrying CBD oil.  

Over Memorial Day weekend, TSA amended their policy on carrying cannabis, making these products allowable “with special instructions,” where they had previously been prohibited. The agency is specifically clarifying that CBD products made from hemp may now be carried on planes.

Prior to this change, TSA did not distinguish between marijuana and hemp-derived cannabis products. But with the 2018 Farm Bill making hemp federally legal, TSA saw it appropriate to update their guidelines to align with new federal regulations.

According to the TSA's new guidelines,

"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."

Hemp, hemp, hooray! CBD is safe for the skies. U.S. domestic travelers can now breathe easy knowing they can take their favorite CBD products in-flight without any uncertainty or complications.

Can you refrigerate the CBD to keep it fresh, if I buy a few more ounces than I need right now.

Hi Ira,

Other countries have different laws regarding hemp products, so we do NOT advise flying internationally with our products.

Be Well,

How about flying overseas with CBD. Is there any complications?
