LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has made changes that could allow some people to travel with CBD and hemp products.
The “What Can I Bring” section on TSA’s website now reads ‘yes’ next to medical marijuana but with special instructions. The new update allows passengers to fly with medical marijuana and CBD products, but only if they’re derived from hemp and FDA approved.
“CBD itself has no intoxicating effects. CBD is going to be more for pain relief, anxiety relief. It does things like reducing inflammation in joints,” said David Dragun, an employee at NUWU dispensary.
Even though TSA is making exceptions, certain CBD products are still illegal under federal law. News 3 reached out to TSA, asking for more clarification.
