This weekend, the TSA changed its policy (see it here) and will now allow people to travel with some CBD oil and medication products, which is great news for people who may need a bit of a CBD boost to help with anxiety before and during a flight.
Previously, all marijuana-related products of any kind were prohibited. This change shows that governmental bodies have a better understanding of what CBD actually is. In other words, they’re learning it’s not THC.
TSA’s website explains that CBD oil is allowed if it is produced in accordance with the “regulations defined by the law under the Agriculture Improvement Act 2018.” CBD products that contain THC are still prohibited.
One of the driving factors of this change is the FDA approval of Epidiolex, a drug that treats specific cases of epilepsy and contains cannabidiol (CBD). Upon learning of this approval, the TSA updated its policy. There are not a whole lot of details provided on the TSA policy pages regarding CBD, but if you travel with a CBD product that contains no THC you should be fine.
Many people use CBD as a remedy for pain, anxiety, inflammation and various other problems, so this is welcome news to a lot of travelers.
Currently trying out these gummies at night to aid with sleep! I’ll report back with the results, but so far one thing is clear–they taste pretty good. I have them for dessert.
