With summer coming up and marijuana legalization making headway around the country, those traveling may be wondering about whether they can travel with hemp-derived CBD.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently updated its policy concerning cannabis. The updates are available on its “What Can I Bring” webpage concerning medications. There, users will see “Medical Marijuana” listed, but also “(Special Instructions).”

The page also notes

“Possession of marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law. TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law, including possession of marijuana and certain cannabis infused products.” It continues,

“Products/medications that contain hemp-derived CBD or are approved by the FDA are legal as long as it is produced within the regulations defined by the law under the Agriculture Improvement Act 2018.”

In a recent article by Marijuana Moment, a TSA spokesperson discussed the policy change. The spokesperson shared in the article,

“TSA was made aware of an FDA-approved drug that contains CBD oil for children who experience seizures from pediatric epilepsy, To avoid confusion as to whether families can travel with this drug, TSA immediately updated TSA.gov once we became aware of the issue.”

Thus, those who travel are encouraged to review the regulations themselves and to understand what is permitted and what is not permitted. By being aware of the regulations, users can promote a safe and smooth travel process.
