We all strive for cosmic awareness but most of us have a difficult time sitting still. This August not only are we trying out a plastic-free box but it will also include some wonderful CBD goods to promote stillness.
Travelling with CBD
Now that CBD products are legal in the United States many consumers are seeking to better understand the laws surrounding the use and possession of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD was previously classified as a schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act but with the recent passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act prohibition of CBD has ended.
What Is CBD?
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is one of over 400 cannabinoids that comes from the cannabis and hemp plants.
CBD produced from the hemp plant contains less than .3% THC and is considered a non-intoxicating substance. CBD does not make the user feel “high” such as THC does.
CBD is now legal in all 50 U.S. states and is often sold as a wellness product online. CBD products come in different forms such as oils, lotions, creams, tinctures and capsules.
What Is the Agriculture Improvement Act?
The Agriculture Improvement Act is more commonly known as the Farm Bill which was passed by the United States Government in December 2018. The new legislation lifted the prohibition on hemp in the United States and made products derived from hemp, such as CBD, fully legal.
The legalization of hemp is expected to boost the CBD industry and generate more research into the therapeutic applications of CBD. Experts predict that the CBD industry will be worth $1 billion by 2020.
Travelling With CBD
Travelling with CBD products is now legal within the United States. CBD may be transported across state lines and into states where medical cannabis is not yet legal.
Residents of the United States are also able to fly with CBD products as long as they meet TSA regulations. For instance, if CBD oil is being taken on a plane in a carry-on bag it must be under the maximum allowable liquid stipulated in the TSA guidelines.
The CBD product must clearly show that the CBD was derived from hemp and contains less than .3% THC. It is always advisable to ensure that products are clearly labeled with this information to avoid confusion over whether the CBD product is legal.
At the end of the day TSA agents are attempting to maintain safety on planes and are looking for weapons or illegal drugs. As long as an individual’s CBD products are clearly labeled as “hemp derived CBD” there shouldn’t be an issue.
International Travel With CBD
CBD products are illegal at all border crossings and on international flights. While CBD is legal in the United States it is not legal in many other countries. For instance, Canada has legalized recreational cannabis however the purchase and sale of hemp derived CBD products is still illegal.
If an individual attempts to take CBD products across an international border the products will be confiscated and criminal charges may be pressed.

CBD: a Primer
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of more than 400 compounds from either Hemp or Cannabis. Unlike THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol—another well-known cannabis compound—CBD doesn’t have psychoactive effects, or the euphoric “high” associated with marijuana use.
A Tale of Two CBDs: Hemp vs. Cannabis
Think of Hemp and Cannabis as cousins. They’re both from the Cannabis family, but everyone calls one of them by the family name: “Cannabis” and sometimes by a nickname: “Marijuana.” The other is known simply as “Hemp.” Cannabis and Hemp both contain CBD and THC (they’re relatives, after all), but the concentrations of each compound vary. While Cannabis’ composition of mind-altering THC ranges from 10-30%, Hemp harbors a mere .3%. When it comes to the curative CBD compound, both cousins yield comparable extractions, ergo two CBDs: Hemp- or Cannabis-derived. Due to Cannabis’ psychotropic nature, Cannabis-CBD is only available in places that have legalized medical marijuana use. Hemp-CBD, on the other hand, is legal throughout the United States and more than 40 countries around the world.
From head to toe, CBD molecules attach to the body’s naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors to get the job done, whatever that job may be. If you can’t eat because you’re sick, but you need nutrients to get well, CBD will boost the appetite, stat. If you have a rumbly in your tumbly, the anti-nausea effects of CBD just might save the day. When anxiety strikes, CBD oil can take the edge off, making stressful social situations a piece of (C)BD cake. CBD’s powerful properties also tackle inflammation—the root system of disease and chronic pain. An inflammation-free body is a happy, healthy body.
How to take CBD is completely up to you! You can ingest it, vape it, or sublingual-spray it. CBD salves and tinctures can also be applied topically for a slow absorption and sustained effect. Chakra Love Elevated Essentials™ and Chakra Love Cannabis™ offer a variety of CBD goods—tinctures, balms, chocolates, candles, tea, coffee, supplements and more—and tools crafted from jewelry-grade metals, crystals and charms to make your ritual a sacred one.
