As an extra cautionary step, double-check the CBD oil possession laws of both the state you’re traveling to and the state you’re traveling from. The website CBD Origin recommends printing out a product’s lab report and have it available if needed to verify the cannabinoid content to any inquiring authorities. And if you’re traveling with CBD oil products as medication, you should always travel with your prescription handy, as you would any other prescribed medicine.

The Benefits of CBD Oil for Travelers
Can you have CBD oil in national parks?

The only type of CBD oil product that Tutkus doesn’t recommend traveling with in the U.S. is hemp flower, because of its similarities to the cannabis flower. Lab results are the only way to tell the difference between the two plants.
The surest way to find out if CBD oil is legal in the country you are travelling to is by speaking to a customs agent or an embassy official. You may also be able to receive assistance from airline or airport officials. As CBD oil gains more acceptance across the globe, laws are subject to change, so checking them regularly is highly recommended—you might be pleasantly surprised!
If you cannot be without CBD oil, make sure you thoroughly research any applicable regulations. You can always contact an airline or security agency directly to ask what their stance on travelling with CBD oil is, especially if guidance is lacking online.
Most CBD products will prominently display their cannabinoid content. Additionally, they will usually point out the fact that their product is under the legal threshold for THC content.
As such, without extensive research or written permission, the uncertainty associated with taking CBD oil on a flight doesn’t outweigh the benefits—at least in the majority of situations.
However, the situation in the US isn’t as straightforward as it appears. While state law may accept CBD oil, local decisions can still conflict with federal regulations. As such, it is always a good idea to research the local laws of the specific state you’re flying into.
