If you have an upcoming hunting or fishing trip planned, you might be wondering how to travel with your CBD. Due to the increasing popularity surrounding CBD, there are many new individuals trying it for the first time. If you fall into this category, you might be wondering about the legalities of traveling with CBD. As research continues, it’s normal to want to know more about this plant. In this blog, we’re going to dive into some tips for traveling with CBD.
While CBD comes from hemp, which isn’t an illegal plant, other members of the Cannabis sativa genus are illegal on a federal level. With that being said, you’re okay to feel skeptical traveling with CBD. But, we want to make sure you feel safe and secure when purchasing with Revital Outdoors.
- Where Are You Going?
Just like with most things, you’ll want to look up the rules locally to where you’ll be. While CBD is relatively new to the world, paranoia is still on the higher side. Therefore, whenever you’re going somewhere with CBD – look into what the rules are where you are going. This blog will focus mainly on traveling laws within the United States, rules change abroad.
- Is Your CBD Compliant?
As we’ve stated previously in our What Good Looks Like Blog, CBD products can vary in quality. Some consumers are looking for a good deal. But they’re sacrificing compliance, premium ingredients, and third-party tested lab reports. CBD has to be extracted from hemp to be classified as CBD. Hemp doesn’t contain much of the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC. Remember, if the plant contains more than 0.3% of this cannabinoid, then it’s no longer hemp but technically marijuana. At Revital Outdoors, our products contain 0.0% THC.
Growing hemp plants is no longer illegal on a federal level but is under a strict watchful eye, due to the Farm Bill 2014. Under this bill, you must apply to your state to get the permission to cultivate hemp. Therefore, states will sign off on companies growing hemp based upon two precedents. The company has to be approved for that state’s pilot program, or growing hemp must be okayed for academic research.
- Broad Spectrum CBD
If you’ve never heard of Broad Spectrum CBD, check out our blog here. That will help you get a more in-depth grasp to fully understand what’s in your CBD. Simply, getting a broad-spectrum CBD means that the whole hemp plant is used. Then, leaves, stems and seeds are put under pressure. During this period the oils within the plant material secrete out and are collected for high-quality CBD products. If you purchase a broad-spectrum CBD, you’re getting as many cannabinoids as possible. Studies suggest that cannabinoids have an entourage effect on one another. Therefore, making broad-spectrum CBD increase in strength amongst others. Additionally, the cannabinoids increase the potency and bioavailability of all the other compounds in the CBD oil. Remember, the only cannabinoid missing is THC. When you choose a broad-spectrum CBD product from Revital Outdoors, you don’t need to worry about THC being present in the product. This is due to the fact that any traces of THC are removed for consumption. We also use a third-party lab test to ensure our products contain 0.0% THC. You can read each report for your Revital Outdoors Premium Products by scanning the QR code directly on the product.
- What’s in your CBD?
The reason it’s important to ensure you’re purchasing quality CBD, is because CBD products are not regulated. Unless the company provides third-party testing on their products, there still could be trace materials in your product. These unknown materials can provide unknown issues later. Therefore, that’s why we preach a broad-spectrum CBD that disclosed all active and inactive ingredients.
Choosing a company that provides upfront transparency can help you lighten any worries about breaking laws. Having a company go the extra mile goes a long way in producing a great product. At Revital Outdoors, we hope to gain life-long customers and that holds true before and after the purchase. We ensure third-party lab testing with transparent results on each product we offer. If you’re curious about yours, scan the QR code on the product to pull the report.
- How Are You Traveling?
As of now, there’s no such thing as teleportation. Therefore, make sure you check in with your travel plans and what methods you’ll be taking. Driving laws and Airport laws can be different. As a good rule of thumb, the other tips can be used interchangeably.
- Keep Record
It’s important when coming into contact with a TSA agent, you have your ducks in a row. Especially so you don’t delay your flight, haha! Just keep a copy of your printed CBD order so that they see the product is hemp derived. If you happen to have a medical cannabis card, bring it with you when you travel.
- Airport Rules on Liquids
If you’re like us – you’re no stranger to travel and restrictions on travel with TSA. The worst part is getting your stuff taken in front of all your peers at security. Plus, when traveling with CBD, it can be an expensive “oops!” So if you’re flying with CBD oil, make sure you know the airport restrictions. While CBD oil is more than just a liquid to us, TSA still views them as liquids. The liquid container cannot be larger than 3.4 ounces, or you will not be able to take it onboard.
Make note that you can’t leave CBD oil alone in your bag with other liquids drifting around as well. But, when you’re hopping on a plane all your liquids must be in the same plastic bag. You’re allowed one quart-sized bag full of liquids per person on the flight.
While the area is still gray, it’s important to be upfront if you’re traveling with CBD oil. If you feel suspicious, you’re going to look suspicious. Placing it in the depths of your checked luggage can raise a red flag. And therefore lead to your luggage being checked.
It’s never fun to have strangers parading through your luggage. Plus, it increases the probability of theft. Over $25 million dollars worth of property was stolen from checked bags between 2010 and 2014.
Another thing to note is that you’re able to have CBD on your person to put out the fires as they arise. If someone sees the CBD in your bag and questions you, they could contact authorities. Then, you’ll get off the plane to an unpleasant surprise. Having the oil in your carry-on allows you the opportunity to show documentation before authorities arrive.
- Which Products Should I Travel With?
It might be better to travel with our CBD Softgels versus our oil. They’re compact, easy-to-take, and nano-emulsified. Due to the nanoemulsion process, our oil is no longer in a liquid state. It’s texture is broken down into tiny microbeads of CBD. Then, cannabinoids are engulfed in a casing void of any psychoactive chemical compounds. So, our softgels are TSA-friendly.
You also should consider traveling with the CBD Salve Stick. It’s compact and easy-to-roll on application. No-mess guaranteed and you’ll be feeling relief in no time. Plus, it’s the perfect product to pop into your carry-on for flight coverage.
- Avoid Travel Stress
Traveling can be a stressful time. Especially now with COVID-19 restrictions and cancelations. Make sure to combat any stressors with your CBD products. Whether the kid is kicking the seat behind you, or your mask won’t stay over your nose, there’s many reasons to use CBD products. Traveling shouldn’t be stressful, so don’t make it.
