Traveling is a beautiful thing. A favorite hobby of those with the time and the dime to tour their respective countries or even the world. With all the joys of traveling like trying new cuisines, relaxing in tranquil spas, and epic photo-ops, can also come a few obstacles.
Jet lag, being away from home, your pets, your loved ones, etc. Travel anxiety and a lack of proper rest while on vacay can put a damper on your travel plans, but fear not fellow globetrotter, for CBD is here to help.
CBD oil can be a fantastic travel companion. Maybe you’re worried you won’t be able to nap on that lengthy flight, or that the pillow in your hotel room, as plush as it may be, simply isn’t the one you’re used to sleeping with. Perhaps you’ve ventured to an adventurous but questionable part of the world, or maybe you just dislike flying or traveling in general but are forced to do so for work, visiting family, etc.
ABC News says, “According to some estimates, as many as 25 percent of all Americans suffer some nervousness about flying but the National Institute of Mental Health says this fear, usually called aviophobia, affects just 6.5 percent of the population.”
It isn’t just a fear of flying that CBD can help with, as it has plenty of other uses while traveling such as easing travel anxiety, help with falling or staying asleep, or maybe even with managing pain and discomfort while abroad.
There is one significant caveat, however, to bear in mind when traveling with CBD. Especially if your travel consists of visiting destinations outside of the United States.
For years, people have wondered about the legality of flying with CBD oil, fearing that getting caught at an airport security checkpoint with a bottle of hemp-extract oil might land them in some seriously hot water.
And there have been times in the past when exactly that has happened. The rules and regulations surrounding CBD and travel have always erred on the side of confusing, but there’s some good news to share regarding how flying with CBD oil is changing.
Recently, the TSA announced that it will permit travelers to fly with CBD. In an effort to keep up with CBD’s popularity, the TSA updates now permit travelers to fly with the hemp-derived drug Epidiolex, a common epilepsy treatment for children, as well as CBD products, as long as they are produced within the regulations defined by the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp and products derived from hemp.
(But just to clarify, that doesn’t mean that THC is okay to fly with, so make sure to leave that California cookie or Colorado cupcake behind if you like to play it safe.)
Additionally, most full-spectrum CBD tinctures have trace amounts of THC in them (0.3% or less), so be sure to look into broad-spectrum CBD tinctures such as our Asé Pure Naturals Broad-Spectrum Hemp Extract or CBD Isolate products which are both free of THC and will allow you to travel with an even clearer conscience.
It’s also important to bear in mind that these traveling-with-CBD updates only apply to domestic travel, so if you’re traveling abroad and CBD is part of your daily routine, it might be worth your while to look into what the local rules and regulations are at your destination before deciding whether or not to travel with your CBD products.
We’ve just only begun to scratch the surface of ways CBD oil might be advantageous while vacationing. In addition to helping with travel anxiety or falling and staying asleep, a few other ways in which using CBD oil while traveling might be a good idea are:
-Helping to act as an anti-inflammatory agent when it comes to the consumption of out-of-the-ordinary foods and drinks.
-Helping with IBS symptoms associated with those foods and drinks.
-Helping to maintain a healthy weight by helping your body convert fat into energy and regulate insulin levels.
-Easing arthritis or chronic aches, so that you can spend more time enjoying your long-awaited vacation.
Your CBD oil can be taken either directly, or it can be added to your vacation’s meals and beverages. If your CBD is unflavored, taking it with food or drink, particularly dessert, will help mask its earthy flavor. If you have a flavored CBD, your tincture might be a tasty and beneficial addition to whatever it is you’re about to consume.
Regardless, much like the perfect hat, sunglasses, or sunblock, CBD can be a must-include addition to your getaway. Especially if your plans aren’t international, and your CBD is Broad-Spectrum or CBD Isolate.
