A large number of people have generally accepted the power of CBD in supporting them in their wellness goals. So is the case with the authorities as well. CBD with no or as little as 0.2% THC has been legalized in many countries.
As we know that cannabis is used for medical purposes in the form of NaturalWorks CBD oil, dry flowers, gummies and others. However, when it comes to travel, people are always in doubt whether they can travel with it or not?
In a nutshell, yes, it is legal to travel nationally and internationally with your NaturalWorks CBD oil and other cannabis products like natural hemp-based food supplements, which are getting popular day by day. All you need to do is to make sure that you take care of the following:
Check with Customs Information and flight rules:
Whenever you plan to travel with NaturalWorks CBD, you should not rely on the news or information on the blogs, as every country or state has its own set of rules regarding travel with cannabis. New policies are also being introduced every other day.
Therefore, in order to avoid any hassles while travelling, you must acquire up-to-date information about the customs and the rules and restrictions of every country or state regarding CBD (also refreed to as Cannabidiol).
Moreover, it is also necessary to check with the flight policies you are flying in and the customs policy of all the countries that you are travelling from, to or through.
Check the Composition of your CBD product:
Additionally, make sure to check that your CBD product is hemp-based instead of marijuana-based. Also, don’t forget to check the quantity of THC in it as many countries have a certain limit THC that is legal.
Acquire a lab report or Certificate of analysis:
Production through substandard procedures can decrease the quality of CBD. Despite the label claiming that the CBD is THC-free, it may still have more than 0.2% THC. In that case, the product will be illegal to carry and you can end up in spoiling your trip.
In order to avoid these glitches, it is advised to buy only the products with no THC or THC as low as 0.2 %. For instance, the UK allows only 0.3% THC in CBD products.
In addition to that, it is highly recommended to acquire a Certificate of Analysis (COA) or lab report before you plan your travel. Keep a printout of that report with you throughout the trip so that you can easily prove the legality of the CBD product to the airport security when needed.
Travelling with CBD for medical purposes:
If you have been prescribed CBD products by your doctor, always keep a prescription with you to travel hassle-free to the destinations where CBD is legal for medical purposes.
Despite complying with all the aforementioned tips, the importance of proper packaging and packing can’t be denied.
It is recommended that liquid-based CBD products should be off-sealed, and should not contain more than 100ml in a bottle. It should be kept in a plastic bag to avoid any spillage. However, the option to carry gummies is always open.
Moreover, it should be readily available for inspection by the authorities involved when needed.
Don’t travel to these destinations with CBD:
You should never plan travel to any Gulf country, South East Asia, South Korea, Japan and Russia as they have very strict laws against CBD.
Travel hassle-free to these destinations with CBD:
If you are travelling to any of these destinations with CBD, you can travel without any hassles, as CBD is completely legal out there. The list includes Poland, Switzerland, Latvia, Croatia, Romania, Lithuania and Croatia.
Travelling to the United States:
CBD products are still illegal to carry into the United States unless it is for medical purposes, and contains THC less than 0.3% as per the policy mentioned on TSA website.
Travelling to and from the United Kingdom:
Despite the announcement in 2014 about the non-arresting policy for those who carry the drugs in small amounts, it is highly recommended to obtain a COA to ensure that either it has no THC or THC within the allowed limits.
Travel With Caution:
Last but not least, always make sure that there are certain countries where allowed limit of THC is more than the limit allowed in the United Kingdom, which is 0.2 %. For instance, Italy allows 0.6% THC for its CBD products, so it is highly recommended not to travel with products bought from such places to the United Kingdom, United States or any other destination which regulates THC content in CBD products.
