Flying with CBD Oil During the Holidays
I would think that some high quality CBD oil would make for a really good gift this year. You will look very contemporary and sophisticated giving out some tinctures, bath bombs or edibles infused with CBD. You might introduce CBD to someone for the first time that really needs it. It will be a real conversation starter.CBD products are small too, so they wrap well and easily fit into suitcases. Life is a lot easier when you don’t have to pack an extra suitcase for your trip home.
Here is the big question though. Will you get in trouble for flying with CBD this holiday season? That’s a solid question. The answer is no, but it also depends on where you are flying to. The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs is the government agency looking out for U.S. citizens when they travel internationally. They are probably making the most noise about traveling with CBD. Just checkout this semi-clever tweet they sent out.
Make sure your gift isn’t a fa la la la la la la la la fail. Bringing along gifts like drones, CBD oils, and firearms can land you in trouble in foreign countries. Research what is and isn’t allowed before you travel. pic.twitter.com/BU12hsQEvv— Travel - State Dept (@TravelGov) December 12, 2019
Many countries still have very strict laws about anything having to do with the cannabis plant. If you landed in Japan with CBD oil and the authorities discovered even trace amounts of THC in the product, you could go to prison. Prison? Yep. Possibly even for 5 years. In general, looking for CBD products that have 0 THC in them is what most people are looking for. No psychoactive effects, no breaking the law. You can always check the Travel.State.Gov site to get more information about international laws pertaining to CBD.
Here in the States though, you are golden. The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp and all of its derivatives legal. As long as hemp contains less than .3% THC, it’s legal. But, again, be careful with any product that contains THC. If you live in a state that has legalized medical marijuana or adult-use marijuana and you decide to buy your CBD oil from a dispensary, there is a good chance that it contains some THC. A pure CBD isolate product is what contains no THC at all.
So, give out some CBD cookies this Holiday season. Let your aunts and uncles open some vanilla CBD 1000mg oil. Have your cousins try some strawberry CBD oil or some CBD gummy bears. Reassure them that they don’t have to worry about getting high and show them the CBD lab tests so they can see there is no THC. How about some CBD bath salts for your sisters? Make this Holiday season bright with some delicious keto CBD edibles!
