Can You Fly With Cannabis or Delta-8?

If you’re interested in discovering some of the benefits that cannabis might have for you, you’re in luck.

From the beach to the mountains to simply heading to your hometown for the holidays, there are a number of places you may want to bring your favorite cannabis products — but you’re not sure whether they’re allowed on the plane.

When determining whether you can fly with cannabis or Delta-8, it’s best to start with the most basic question: is the product you want to pack federally legal? If the product you want to bring with you is Delta-8, then you’re in luck. Delta-8 THC products are federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, given that they contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis. If you have a different type of cannabis product that also meets this standard — say Delta-9, CBD, or THCa that contains no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis — you’re also in the clear.

Though that’s the short answer, there are some other factors to consider and some additional questions that you may have. Here are Mood’s answers to some of the most common questions about flying with cannabis and Delta-8.

Is it legal to fly with Delta-8?


To reiterate the above, yes. This is primarily because TSA checkpoints and other secure flying areas operate under federal jurisdiction, and Delta-8 enjoys federal legality. That said, once you reach your destination and exit TSA, you’ll want to check the local and state regulations surrounding cannabis use and Delta-8.

Do TSA officers search for cannabis?


In TSA’s own words, their screening procedures are focused on security. They’re designed to detect potential threats to aviation and passengers, and that’s why TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs. If an illegal substance is discovered during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.

What if TSA contacts local authorities?


If a TSA officer suspects that you may be violating the law, there’s a possibility that they’ll report you to local or state authorities. Though unlikely, it can complicate the situation if your product isn’t legal on the state level. Because of this possibility, some may choose to only fly with Delta-8 when it’s legal in both the state they’re departing from and the state they’re arriving in.

What happens if you’re questioned?


In the case that you’re questioned by TSA officers, there are a few things you can plan to bring with you to prove the federal legality of your products and help ensure the situation goes smoothly. The first and most important is a lab report of the product. This will prove that your product meets the legal limits outlined by the Farm Bill.

Luckily, you won’t have to print and carry a paper copy of the lab report with you. All of Mood’s products undergo third-party testing, and you can find these lab reports by scanning a QR code on their original product label. Simply keep your products stowed in the boxes they came in, and you’ll be all set. If you don’t have the original packaging, you can head to the bottom of any product page on Mood’s website. In addition to the lab report QR code, you can show TSA a receipt or proof of purchase of your product, as well as a link to the online cannabis dispensary you purchased it from and any legal information they may have on their site.

Does the product type you travel with matter?


If the item you're bringing is legal, then technically no. But some product types will draw less attention than others, and this can help you avoid needing to prove the legality of your items at all. For example, TSA tends to keep an eye out for vaping devices, and may be more likely to flag a Delta-8 vape than other products during security.

This is partially because electronic cigarettes and vapes with certain types of batteries can pose a hazard if they begin to heat during transport, and partially because there are additional rules around traveling with vapes: they’re allowed only in carry-on baggage, and you’re never allowed to use them while on the plane. Because of the security concerns surrounding vapes, you may opt to bring more discreet items. Delta-8 gummies and pretty much any type of edibles should look relatively unnoteworthy in your bags.

Where can I buy legal cannabis?


Now that you know some of the ins and outs of flying with Delta-8 and other legal cannabis products, you’re ready for takeoff. Simply keep these tips in mind, and remember to go prepared with proof of legality in case you run into any speed bumps.
