TSA is OK with CBD!

According to an updated policy released by the TSA, hemp-based Cannabidiol (CBD) products are now allowed to be carried by travelers. This follows the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and the FDA's first approval of a cannabis-based drug, Epidolex.

Please note that 'hemp-based-CBD-products' refers to any cannabis product that tests below a potency of 0.3% THC.

The official TSA policy reads, “Possession of marijuana and cannabis-infused products, such as cannabidiol (CBD) oil, is illegal under federal law. TSA officers are required to report any suspected violation of law, including possession of marijuana and cannabis-infused products. TSA’s screening[s] are focused on security and are designed to direct potential threats to aviation and passengers. Accordingly, TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs, but in the event that a substance that appears to be marijuana or a cannabis-infused product is observed during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a local law enforcement officer.”
