You can fly with CBD?
Yes! Cannabidiol (CBD) has many therapeutic effects, such as anxiety reduction and sleep-aid. For these reasons, CBD is becoming a more frequent alternative to aid nervous-flyers. Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD) has become federally decriminalized in America, and with that traveling guidelines have changed. So what does this mean for you? Let’s discuss some need-to-know information regarding traveling with CBD.
What is TSA approved?
In the United States and in accordance with the TSA guidelines, any CBD must be FDA approved or hemp derived and contain less than .3% THC on a dry weight basis. Meaning marijuana derived CBD is still considered federally illegal and should not be taken through airports or other forms of regulated travel. The 3-1-1 rule also applies to CBD products, so any oil, cream, tincture or paste you travel with should be under 3oz for plane travel. CBD vape pens can be taken through the airport only in your carry-on. Any lithium-ion batteries can not exceed a rating of 100wh and 2 grams for lithium metal batteries. Luckily, our Strain Snobs batteries meet the TSA guidelines!
Better Safe than Sorry!
It’s important to keep in mind that ultimately, it’s up to the discretion of the TSA agent whether or not your CBD product is deemed TSA acceptable. And while hemp derived CBD is federally decriminalized as of 2022, certain states (such as Idaho, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Nebraska) have serious penalties for possession of what they deem to be marijuana derived CBD. For this reason, it’s highly recommended you have a physician's certificate as well as proof that your CBD product contains less than .3% THC. In fact, Did you know that all of our Active CBD Oil products have a QR code on the label that takes you directly to a third-party lab test showing a detailed analysis of all the cannabinoids contained in each product!
Airplane Safe Alternatives
In fact, all of our Active CBD Oil products meet FDA guidelines! So as long as you are in compliance with the 3-1-1 rule, our products could be a great option if you’re soon traveling. We even have a travel safe CBD On The Go Pouch containing all of your essential travel needs in under 2 oz. per product!

Since the 2018 Farm Bill was passed, the therapeutic effects of CBD have become more readily available at a rapid rate. So much so that we can now take it through TSA with relatively little stress.
