Traveling with CBD – What to Know

Traveling with CBD

You’re a CBD enthusiast, and the thought of leaving it behind when you travel leaves you cold? Not to worry – traveling within the USA, you’re good to go and to take your CBD with you. If your trip will take you outside the states, that’s a different story – see below. Make sure you are knowledgeable about the CBD product you are carrying, and enjoy your trip. The team at online review site CBDtop10.com is familiar with all aspects of the CBD world, and here is our input for travelers:

Domestic travel:

The 2018 Farm Bill changed a lot of things for CBD users in the USA. CBD products derived from the hemp plant are no longer lumped in with Tier 1 drugs (wasn’t that absurd anyway?), and are legal to be taken across state borders, including on flights. If you are getting on a plane, here’s what the TSA has to say to you:

Keep in mind that regulations for the size of liquid containers will apply to CBD oils, limiting you to three ounces. Since most CBD oils are sold in 1 oz. or 2 oz. bottles, this should not be an issue.

Here’s why we say you should be knowledgeable about your product; CBD obtained from marijuana plants is still not allowed in some states. If you know that your CBD is derived from hemp, no worries! (This information is available on the website of any reputable CBD brand). If you find that your product does, in fact, come from marijuana plants, be sure to check the laws of any states you are traveling to. If in doubt, leave your usual brand behind and carry a brand specifically derived from hemp. The CBD is the same regardless!

Federal regulations rule in National Parks, so the hemp-derived CBD requirement applies in the parks regardless of the laws for the state in which the park lies.

Some travelers have told us they carry a printout of the lab report for their CBD product so that they have some documentation to back them up in the unlikely event that they are questioned while on their trip. Again, this is something you can get from any reputable CBD manufacturer’s website. Check the THC content on the report – the specific level of THC allowed in CBD products is 0.3 percent.

If you have been prescribed CBD by a medical professional, you should carry your prescription with you.

Still uncomfortable? Get a broad-spectrum or isolate CBD instead of your usual full-spectrum oil. The THC has been eliminated from these products through additional processing in the production stages.

International Travel:

Things are not so straightforward for those traveling outside the USA. Many countries, especially in Europe, are quite open to CBD use and there would be no problems for a traveler with CBD. However, there are also countries with much stricter laws regarding anything remotely resembling a drug. An international traveler would need to research and understand the laws of any destination country.

As much as we love our CBD at CBDtop10, we have been known to just leave it behind on international trips. It isn’t worth the time to investigate laws, or to be on edge wondering about your legality. This includes trips to visit our friendly neighbors in Canada. Although CBD and marijuana products are completely legal in Canada, it is still illegal to transport any cannabis product across the border from the USA. We have purchased CBD products once we were across the border from the dispensaries that are easily found in Canada.

Cruises

Many cruise lines prohibit CBD on board. At the least, you need to speak directly to your cruise line to see what their specific rules are. As with international flying, it’s probably best to leave your CBD behind and let the ocean breezes soothe you instead.

Final thoughts:

As outlined above, you are free to travel with your hemp-derived CBD within the USA. We travel without our CBD on international trips and we suggest you do the same.

There are convenient sample sizes of some CBD products available from some brands, and carrying these means you can leave your larger supply at home. We particularly like the Daily Dose product from Green Roads World. These are small, flat individual packets of the Green Roads CBD oil with 25 mg of CBD in each one. Easily packed and carried, they are a great idea for the traveler.

Best wishes for stress-free travel, with or without your CBD.

CBD Trends in 2022

CBD Trends in 2022

One of the fastest-growing product categories will be CBD in 2022, with sales estimated to reach $1.3 billion, according to New Frontier Data. There is still no FDA approval for the use of CBD products, which include CBD extracted from hemp, in food and drinks.

There are currently just a handful of jurisdictions that allow the sale of CBD-based products, and each state has its own set of laws in place. Let’s take a look at the top CBD trends that you can anticipate to see in 2022.

CBD Trends in 2022 – A better tomorrow

CBD Trends in 2022

Hemp-derived cannabinoids will be worth $4.6 billion in sales in the United States by 2020, a huge increase in sales just two years after federal legalization. Two prominent projections predict that the U.S. market would expand from $15 billion to more than $20 billion by the years 2025 and 2024, respectively.

Currently, a large variety of CBD products are available from a variety of firms. As more firms produce products that focus specifically on each of hemp’s roughly 100 minor cannabinoids, this variety is sure to grow. Cannabinol, cannabigerol, and other chemicals and mixtures will be created for specialized applications.

Greater CBD Consumer Diversity

Marijuana is becoming less of a “bad guy” as the debate over its legalization and the advantages of CBD becomes more open. However, a growing number of people are turning to CBD for its medicinal properties.

Cannabis users used to be stigmatized. Marijuana usage is becoming more common in the United States, with 49 percent of those who use it having a bachelor’s degree or above. The disparity between the sexes when it comes to cannabis usage is narrowing, with a bigger proportion of female cannabis users. Menstrual cramps are a common reason for women to turn to CBD, thanks to the compound’s ability to alleviate discomfort.

Pets are the most unconventional newcomers to the world of CBD. Even animals benefit from the same medicinal properties as humans. CBD can be used as a treatment for chronic pain if conventional therapy fails for your pet.

Customers will continue to grow as more states decriminalize and legalize cannabis, and this trend is expected to continue as more states decriminalize and legalize cannabis.

More Developments on CBD Legalization

Businesses are cashing in on the now-booming CBD sector following the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and the legalization of cannabis in some states. The medicinal and economic advantages of CBD products have prompted more states to legalize the use and sale of CBD products.

Many states in the United States, including Connecticut, plan to legalize CBD completely by May 2022. It’s a new era for the cannabis business with the Hemp Economic Mobilization Plan (HEMP) Act of 2021. Farmers are protected from having their crops destroyed if their cannabis plants have a THC content of more than 0.3 percent.

As a result, the definition of hemp has been changed to include cannabis plants with less than 0.3 percent THC. For the first time, CBD has been approved for medicinal usage in Georgia, Hawaii, and Minnesota, with Connecticut hoping to completely allow it by May 2022.

Conclusion

It’s exhilarating to consider CBD’s possibilities in the future. More and more people are embracing CBD as a health supplement, and we’re seeing more CBD Trends and studies on how this plant may be utilized to cure various ailments.

How to Take Epidiolex and What Are Its Side Effects

Published

on

Epidiolex

Epilepsy sufferers with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome can now use Epidiolex oral solution, which was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration on June 25, 2018. To our knowledge, this is the first marijuana-derived medication to be authorized by the FDA. For the first time, an FDA-approved medicine has been approved for the treatment of Dravet syndrome patients.

But aside from being the first-ever accepted CBD drug, do we really know what Epidiolex is? In this article, we will give you more information about this drug, the benefits, and side effects. Read on for more details.

Epidiolex and Its Effectiveness

To treat seizures caused by Lennox-Gastaut, Dravet, or Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) in persons 1 year of age and older, Epidiolex is prescribed. For those using the medicine, Epidiolex was found to reduce the number of seizures they had during clinical trials. Cannabidiol is the active component in this medication. It’s only available under the brand name. Isn’t presently accessible as a generic medication.

How to Use Epidiolex

As instructed by your doctor, take Epidiolex medicine twice a day by mouth. With or without meals, this drug should be taken in the same manner for each and every dose. Choosing one method and sticking to it is essential. How much medicine you take is determined by your health status and any other drugs you may be taking.

If you’re taking any kind of medication, whether prescription or non-prescription, inform your doctor and pharmacist about it. Your doctor may instruct you to begin taking this medicine at a lower dosage and gradually raise your dosage in order to minimize the chance of adverse effects.

Your doctor may also gradually lower your dosage if you are told to stop using this medicine. Observe your doctor’s advice to the letter. Using a specific spoon or measuring equipment, carefully measure the dosage. Avoid using a household spoon since you may not receive the right dosage.

Side Effects

Sleepiness, exhaustion, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, a lack of energy and a decrease in appetite, weight loss, or diarrhea are all possibilities. It’s important to notify your doctor or pharmacist if any of these side effects continue or worsen.

Remember that your doctor ordered this medicine because he or she believes that the benefits outweigh the risks. The majority of people who use this medicine do not have any substantial adverse effects.

Signs of liver damage should be reported to your doctor as soon as possible. Anti-seizure medicines may cause depression, suicidal thoughts, or other mental/mood issues in a tiny percentage of people.

The risk of a severe allergic response to this medication is quite low. However, if you detect any signs of a severe allergic response, such as a rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, or difficulty breathing, you should seek immediate medical attention.

How Much Is Epidiolex?

The price of Epidiolex might vary, just like the price of any other drug. Epidiolex may only be available at a specialized pharmacy. Specialty drugs are permitted to be sold at this pharmacy. Patients may need assistance from a healthcare professional in order to properly and efficiently utilize these medications.

Your insurance provider may demand that you obtain prior authorization before covering Epidiolex. As a result, before your insurance company will pay a prescription medication, your doctor and insurance company must talk about it.

Whether or not a medicine is covered by insurance depends on the outcome of the prior authorization request. Your insurance provider can help you determine whether or not you need prior permission for Epidiolex.

Conclusion

Though Epidiolex is an FDA-approved drug, there are no guaranteed similar good effects on every person. So if you ever encountered side effects that are listed above or anything that makes you feel uncomfortable after taking Epidiolex, it is recommended to consult your doctor immediately.
