Traveling With CBD Gummies: What Does The Law Say?

CBD gummies are permitted in your carry-on or checked bag as long as they are derived from the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa) and contain less than 0.3% THC — as stipulated in the 2018 US Farm Bill and detailed in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018

To be certain your gummies are legal and therefore permissible for travel, look up “Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 9THC)” in the Act and double-check in the “Results” column that the percentage of THC by weight of your supplement is less than 0.3%.

Another thing to bear in mind while traveling with gummies is that many US states have laws that stipulate a specific minimum age for the purchase and use of  CBD products. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say, so it pays to do your research before you embark.

State Guidelines for Traveling With CBD

Because the US uses a federal system, the laws governing CBD vary from state to state, meaning you need to be aware of any possible change in regulations when crossing state lines.

In fact, in some states, CBD is illegal, so you might not be allowed to legally possess any CBD supplements at all, regardless of their THC content. 

At present, there are  several states that do not allow CBD supplements, including Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Nevada. Also note that these states and Alabama, Hawaii, Utah, and others do not allow in food or beverages.

Can You Travel With CBD Gummies Internationally?

 If you’re traveling internationally with your CBD gummies, then again, it pays to do your homework. Laws and regulations vary from country to country and you’ll need to know the law in both the countries you’ll be staying in, but also transiting. 

Do Airlines Allow You to Fly With CBD?

Before we get into the specifics of international travel and CBD gummies, and what’s permissible or not, let’s examine the position airlines have taken.

The key thing to remember when traveling with CBD is that it’s your responsibility to do your own research and determine what the law says in the countries you’ll be visiting and transiting. And, as we’ve already said, the law will change from country to country.

Most airlines don’t stipulate their position as to whether they allow CBD products on board their flights or not, so again, you need to use your own judgment and do your own research. To avoid any unpleasant surprises it’s best to contact the airline before your travel and check their policy. 

Even if you’re told by their customer service department that CBD is permitted, it’s still prudent to have the information in writing, so ask for a copy of their regulations and print it before you fly.

However, the most important thing to know is what the law says about CBD supplements in the countries you’ll be flying to — so, at the risk of sounding like a broken record: do your homework!

Tips For Traveling With CBD Gummies

Although more and more people are waking up to the benefits of CBD, its use is still not totally “mainstream” and some countries have some ground to cover before CBD becomes completely accepted.

With that in mind, it’s worth carrying a printed ingredient list and the results of independent testing that show your supplement contains less than 0.3% THC — just to cover yourself for all possible eventualities.

An alternative plan might be to mail your favorite supplement to your destination. That way you can avoid carrying CBD through customs and have it waiting for you on arrival.

Again, it’s always best to double-check the regulations of your carrier and destination country regarding any type of CBD supplement or medical marijuana. Up-to-date information can be found on the TSA’s website.

Can I bring CBD in my carry-on?

The TSA allows CBD oil (check the volume permitted) and CBD gummies in both checked and carry-on luggage, as long as the CBD is hemp-derived and contains less than 0.3% THC — so yes, you can take CBD supplements in your carry-on.

The 0.3% rule applies by weight which means that if your gummies contain less than the specified maximum percentage of THC, they are perfectly fine to put in your carry-on or in your hold luggage. The TSA total maximum permitted weight of CBD supplement is 3 oz, so stick to that amount or less.

Be Prepared For Questions

Even though you may have done your homework and are completely certain your CBD supplement is permitted in all the countries you’ll visit and transit, officials on the ground at either end may not be so well informed — so be prepared for questions. 

Answer questions politely and respectfully and refer to your prepared printouts. In most cases, a little information in black and white is enough to satisfy the curiosity of officials (who may not know the difference between hemp-derived and marijuana-derived CBD).

CBD Gummies Are Most Discreet

CBD gummies are so easy to take that they’re the most discreet of all the CBD supplements and their use may go completely unnoticed by your fellow travelers. Unlike squirting a dropper of oil into your mouth, gummies resemble regular candy, so are unlikely to attract unwanted attention.

And if they do, just pull out your printouts and give them your “pitch”!

Bring Your Certificate of Analysis

To cover yourself even further, bring your certificate of analysis and a copy of the TSA’s most recent guidelines. That way, if you’re challenged by TSA agents, or anyone else, for that matter, you’ll have all the relevant information and proof you need at your fingertips. 

Consider Purchasing Your CBD at Your Destination

One way to avoid any hassles at the airport is to buy your CBD supplement at your destination. Do your homework, though, to make sure that any supplement that you buy abroad is legal in your home country, as you don’t want any nasty surprises if you fly home with a foreign-bought product.

How CBD Gummies Can Benefit Travelers

CBD offers a range of  benefits for travelers and CBD gummies are a great choice of supplement to deliver them. In particular, they can relieve the stress and strain associated with long-haul travel, help you keep calm and relaxed, and improve mental clarity and focus.

There’s a wealth of scientific and anecdotal evidence to support claims for the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of CBD, with many pointing to CBD’s ability to promote wakefulness and increase energy, which is great news for weary, jet-lagged travelers in need of a healthy boost.
