Traveling with CBD oil domestically
According to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD oil  which is derived from hemp is legal at federal level.Therefore, you need to know that it can be carried across state borders and during travel on flights.  Though the CBD oils that come from marijuana are still illegal at few places or states so you can’t carry them across states.

The difference between the two kinds of oils can be detected by reading the label of the product and by the amount of THC it contains. THC level below 0.3% is present in the hemp extracted CBD oils and it is legal to travel with it across the US.Though keep in mind that it is only legal at federal level and still there are restrictions by some laws in some states.

According to the TSA’s website:
“Marijuana and certain cannabis-infused products, including some cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law except for products that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by FDA. (See the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334.) TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law to local, state or federal authorities.

Traveling with CBD oil outside of the U.S.
Always remember that laws are different in different countries so according to the change in state, laws keep changing. There is less clarity of international rules and regulations on CBD  so when you are travelling internationally do prior research on the laws and regulations. It is also suggested by the professionals not to take risks and leave the CBD products at home. Hence, they suggest to make the risk minimum by avoiding the use of CBD products because in some countries there is too much strictness for it.

Rules and regulations during cruising are quite confusing. So if you are supposed to travel on a cruise, it is better to contact the cruise line directly. There is one other thing that never ever try to hide these products on your cruise trip because there are scanners present for security purposes.
