Are you planning on carrying your pet’s CBD as you tour the world with him or her? CBD is a fantastic supplement for pets. Anyone who knows and understands its advantages will see why you would want to carry it with you.
Unfortunately, CBD is prohibited in most of the states. A clearance check at the airport could come between you and your vacation!
Different countries have varying rules in regard to cannabis. Below are some of the conditions pertaining to traveling around the globe with CBD from Simply Pets that may interest you:
- In the US
The policies in the US may force you to consider sacrificing your pet’s happiness every once in a while. The policies governing cannabis are strict and very clear. The law prohibits possession of marijuana and any other product infused by cannabis, such as Cannabidiol (CBD) oil.
Under the United States Transport Security Authority, it is the duty of the TSA officers to look out for any security threats at the airports. However, they also ensure that drugs such as marijuana do not get in.
An understanding TSA officer who might bend down rules may be your only way through, but are they easy to tell? Well, not quite, and furthermore, it is quite risky and happens only rarely. Actually, if you don’t watch it, the back door could land you in some serious trouble!
- In Canada
Are you worried about taking CBD to Canada? You can smile because as from October 2018, cannabis was legalized under the cannabis act.
Shortly afterward, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority updated their rules and regulations to authorize traveling with legal amounts of cannabis, including CBD oil.
Just like any other liquids or aerosols, your pet’s CBD oil can be included in the carry-on-baggage category. This means that the oil should not exceed 100ml and should be in a 1-liter clear, closed, re-sealable plastic bag.
However, traveling internationally in Canada with CBD is prohibited.
But what else could you still be waiting for? Start booking the air tickets already!
- In other parts of the world
I have only talked about the US and Canada, what about the rest of the world? There are a variety of policies in other parts of the world; I can only go through a few of them.
In the Netherlands, for example, CBD is not illegal as it is not listed in the Opium Act. Therefore, to avoid unnecessary stress, ensure that you take credentials from a professional doctor in your country.
Ensure that there is detailed information stating that your pet requires CBD and the reason for that.
The case in Switzerland isn’t really that different. The Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) percentage in a hemp product should not exceed 1% while 0.2% is the limit in Germany.
In conclusion, ensure that you internalize any laws of relevance to you as you travel and during your stay. Make all the arrangements in advance to avoid any last-minute rushes.
If you are in the US, your pet might have to survive without CBD in most of its states. But you can also buy it from your destination or mail it in advance to your arrival location; provided it’s “O.K.” where you’re headed!
