About to make a trip, and wondering if you can travel with CBD in your suitcases? This is a legitimate question, especially since the regulations in force depend on the country you are going to!
What does the law say about traveling with CBD in Europe?
It is good to know several points relating to European law when traveling with CBD.
First of all, your finished products must have a THC level of less than 0.2% to be legal. If you exceed it, you switch to the side of illegality, and that is why it is essential to be able to justify that the dosage of your CBD products is indeed regulatory! To do this, you have every interest in being in possession of a certificate, which will have been previously issued to you by your seller.
It is also essential that your CBD products are still sealed: otherwise, you would be unable to prove its legality during a possible control!
Either way, keep in mind that each country has its own way of dealing with CBD legislation, and it is therefore essential to be well informed on the subject beforehand. To travel to Germany or Portugal for example, you must be able to present a prescription from an approved doctor!
Good to know : In order to avoid any misunderstanding, in particular linked to a confusion between CBD and THC, do not take CBD resin or flowers, even in a sealed sachet. Indeed, dogs do not differentiate between THC and CBD, which could justify further control!
What about destinations outside of Europe?
The question becomes more complicated for international travel, because this type of travel generally involves travel by plane, and customs controls are much stricter with regard to this mode of transport.
Of course, it all depends on your destination, but generally speaking, it’s best to avoid flying with CBD. For the United States for example, the question is very complex, because cannabis is legal there in some states, and others not! Additionally, air transport of cannabis to states that tolerate its consumption is not necessarily permitted.
If you are planning to travel to South America, be aware that Uruguay is the only country to allow cannabis and CBD. On the African side, only South Africa tolerates it.
Like some states in North America, Asia is very strict on this subject, and possessing CBD is punishable by arrest, fines, and even heavier sentences. To avoid any unpleasant surprises, it is therefore preferable to avoid traveling there in possession of CBD!
