Traveling with CBD gummies is getting easier and easier. You just need to make sure you are educated about where you are traveling, to confirm that you are not breaking any laws. Fortunately, laws are becoming more relaxed as people are realizing the amazing benefits of CBD.
So pack your bags, and don’t forget to order some delicious CBD gummies from Verma Farms for your trip! Read this guide to make sure you know what you need to know before you go.
Keep Up to Date on the Laws
Laws around the world are rapidly changing and evolving as governments and voters are becoming more aware of CBD’s powerful benefits.
Everyone seems to be taking CBD, from baby boomers taking CBD for general wellness and symptoms they face as they age, to athletes taking CBD for faster post-training recovery. Regulations are shifting, and the stances government agencies take reflect the challenges of controlling a market that is currently exploding with interest.
United States Federal Laws
The Farm Bill of 2018 legalized the farming and processing of industrial hemp and its products, which seems like it would have completely opened the door for all CBD products made from industrial hemp to be made without penalty.
Things are a bit murky, though, because the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics division of the FDA has indicated that CBD is not approved for supplements, foods, or curative products of any kind.
This means that technically, your CBD gummies are illegal. Don’t worry, though. No one is going to hunt you down because you take CBD gummies to help you sleep. They have officially stated that they intend to most actively pursue brands making curative claims about their gummies.
This is basically an acknowledgment that the laws need to catch up with the times, but the FDA wants to make sure we do more research before people stop taking their insulin in favor of taking CBD.
US State Laws
One of the beautiful parts of the United States framework is that states can make their own laws, and can decide not to adopt federal laws in part or in their entirety. That is why marijuana has been legalized at some level in all but three states, even though it is illegal at a federal level.
Regardless of the more accepting relationship with hemp and cannabis products states are adopting, it is important to understand the laws for the states to and through which you are traveling. Some states require a prescription, and others require that the THC levels be at or below 0.3 percent.
The laws in countries outside the United States are also evolving. When you travel to a different country, it is important to know their laws and the penalties for breaking them. Most of North America and Europe are fairly progressive about hemp and cannabis, but this is not the case everywhere. If you get caught with CBD that has any trace of THC in Japan, you will face up to five years in prison. If you are caught in Dubai, you can only hope you get released before you’re 80. Do your research before you go, to avoid a ruined vacation or worse, prison time.
Get the Right CBD
Going on a trip in 2020 requires lots of preparation, and you should not overlook the importance of making sure you have the right CBD for your travels. You want high-quality CBD that will get the job done while your life routines are disrupted (fun as they are), help you sleep even if your hotel bed isn’t ideal, and keep you feeling good even if you’re sore from that rock climbing expedition.
CBD gummies 1000mg are great to have in your backpack or carry-on. You will have enough to get through at least a couple of weeks, and probably some to share as well. CBD gummies are easy to take, delicious, and discreet. When you have a bag or bottle of gummies, all you have to do is pop them in your mouth and you are set for the day. You do not have to worry about spilling them, you can take them just about anywhere, and they are fun to share with friends.
CBD oils 1000mg are an excellent answer if you are watching your sugar, or if you would like to add your CBD to drinks, foods, or lotions. In order to play it safe, THC-free oils can help you keep feeling great, without raising much suspicion from any sort of enforcement officers, TSA or otherwise.
Traveling with CBD is generally very safe within North America and most of Europe. However, the changing laws make things a bit ambiguous at times and can leave things open to interpretation.
Additionally, it can be a challenge to tell the difference between hemp-derived CBD (which is legal on some level in most of the regions mentioned), and marijuana-derived CBD (which is federally illegal and more regulated).
Unfortunately, when things are open to interpretation, you need enforcement officers to give you the benefit of the doubt, which may be more challenging for some groups of people than others. You can help yourself out by being confident in the laws pertaining to the region you are traveling in and bringing a certificate of analysis with you. You can find a certificate of analysis either on your CBD product’s packaging or at the brand’s website, and it will verify that your CBD is hemp-derived in case of any confusion. Have fun, and be safe out there!
