Today, CBD and other hemp products are used daily by millions to support health and well-being. But the question of whether these products can be carried when traveling abroad can lead to significant confusion and worry.
In this article, we will explore the legality of flying with CBD products and the steps you need to take to ensure that you are prepared to travel, without missing out on your well-being support.
Can I Carry CBD Oil On An Aeroplane?
To the best of our knowledge, carrying CBD Oil, or any other CBD product containing less than 0.2% THC is permitted by most airlines when traveling to and from the UK.
But to be safe, it's always best to contact your specific airline to find out whether that is the case with them. Also, remember that if you are carrying CBD in liquid form, as with CBD Oils, you need to ensure that each bottle contains no more than 100ml.
To be extra safe, you might want to consider keeping the original packaging of your CBD Product, and printing off a lab report, otherwise known as a COA (Certificate Of Analysis) to demonstrate the cannabinoid content.
Most CBD companies should be able to provide this upon request.
If you have been prescribed CBD or any other cannabis-based medicine by a doctor, keep a copy of your prescription handy.
Which Countries Allow CBD Products?
Carrying CBD products onto a plane is the easy part, but now is the part that requires the most caution - where are CBD and other hemp products legal?
Despite being used by millions in countries across the world, the legality of CBD products is far from uniform. And while this article can be used as a guide, it should not be taken as legal advice.
In the USA and most EU countries, you will unlikely have any issues when carrying your personal supply of CBD with you as long as the THC content is less than 0.2%. However, some nations have different rules, so you always need to check before traveling.
The UAE, for example, has very strict rules on CBD and cannabis products, and possession could lead to imprisonment.
As well as contacting your airline, you should seek official advice from the country that you are traveling to - it's better to be safe than sorry!
Remember - you should always be critical of what you read online. We have come across many articles that provide inaccurate information about the legality of CBD in certain countries, so double or even triple-check to make sure that you have the right information to make an informed decision.
