CBD is known for its promising health benefits and is a natural and safe compound. Although some countries still prohibit the use, production, and possession of cannabis, CBD is legal in most countries worldwide. However, traveling with CBD products can still be a challenge due to the stigma surrounding marijuana, which is derived from the cannabis plant.
This year, as the world has loosened up and traveling has resumed, knowing the local law in traveling with CBD is a must! So, for those adventurer souls that don’t want to mess up with the law, here is a guide on traveling with CBD in 2023.
Traveling with CBD
If you are going on a road trip
Driving across states or countries with CBD is easier than using other means of transportation. If CBD is legal in your country, carrying it is not an offense if the THC content is below the legal limit. However, make sure that you understand the local law if you are crossing country/state borders. Because each of them may have different regulations when it comes to the THC level allowed to carry.
If you are on the Train and Other Means of Mass Transit
Traveling by train and other means of mass transit has similar rules to traveling in a car. If you are traveling within the borders of your country, carrying a CBD product is fine if the THC level is below 0.3%. But for trains and buses using international connections, make sure to check their regulations on CBD products in your destination.
If you are on a plane (US)
If you are caught in possession of any cannabis product with a THC content higher than 0.3%, you may have legal issues. That’s why when traveling on a plane, make sure to have the certificate of analysis for your product. This will confirm if your product’s THC content is below the legal limit.
