Can I Pack CBD When I Travel Internationally?
For many people, especially avid travelers, travel bloggers or those who need to move between countries for their business needs, travelling beyond their own borders is a part of their daily lives. Unfortunately, Covid-19 travel restrictions can be very frustrating. But our team is full of hope, especially on the back of massive vaccination programs and improvements in the incidence rates in many countries around the globe. In this article, we will discuss some of the things you should be aware of to avoid problems when travelling with CBD.
If the last thing you want to worry about while travelling is the CBD product in your suitcase, then follow the three tips below when arranging your trip.
Tip #1 — Carefully familiarise yourself with local CBD regulations
We’ll start with the most important point. You should always check whether it’s legal to use CBD or simply bring it with you from a foreign country. Don’t forget that in some countries the legislation may differ from region to region. Different countries that allow the free sale and purchase of CBD-infused products often have different permissible THC thresholds, so you should definitely check that out as well. If there is little or no information about the subject available on the Internet or in your native language, feel free to contact the country’s customs office or ask someone in the local community to find out for you. Just remember that CBD legislation is the most important aspect you need to consider.
Tip #2 — Check all of the product’s documentation
Your product’s documentation might be as important as your ID. Considering that customs officials may want to examine your CBD product, the best thing to do is to store it in its original packaging, which generally contains all the necessary information. Sometimes producers enclose testing results, but if not, you can try to find the product documentation on the website or request that the producer sends it to you by email. The documents will help you prove that the product complies with the legal THC threshold, has been tested and is derived from hemp (not marijuana).
Tip #3 — Be confident
This tip touches on both of those presented above. If you fully comply with the legislation of the country you are entering and have all the required documents for your product, there is no need to be concerned. So, be transparent, don’t hide your CBD product and don’t worry.
We hope these tips will help you in your cross-border travelling with CBD products. No matter what mode of transport you prefer for travelling, there is always a possibility of being checked. And if you are dreaming of an idyllic and relaxing vacation, it won’t be enough to only rely on your lucky stars. Do the necessary checks, remember the main points of consideration and learn about other people’s experiences to avoid any possible problems.
