If you’re like most people, you love discovering new places, but you probably hate the hassle and discomfort that often comes along with traveling by car or by plane. But what if we told you there’s a sure-fire solution for these and other travel-related woes?
That solution is Cannabidiol, or CBD, as it is better known. CBD has been proven to offer relief from everyday ailments—including poor sleep, occasional anxiety, migraines and even arthritis pain. This is especially helpful for travelers dealing with jet lag, anxious stomach and back pain.
In this article, we’ll discuss how using high-quality oral topical CBD treatments from The Happy Camper can make your next trip a relaxed and enjoyable one.
Here’s why travelers love CBD
At The Happy Camper, we source only the finest organic, Colorado-grown hemp to create our CBD tinctures, soft gels and transdermal creams. There are many reasons our customers never leave home without these products, and here are just a few:
- Unlike its psychoactive sister THC, CBD does not produce a “high” feeling—which is important, since travelers must remain calm and alert throughout their journey. Our 1500mg Full-Spectrum CBD Soft Gels give users the calmness and focus they need to navigate busy airports or traverse winding back roads without feeling sick or anxious.
- If you’re a nervous flyer, there’s good news. Taking a daily dose of CBD has been shown to promote relaxation and offer relief from occasional anxiety. Try a dose of our 1200mg Full-Spectrum CBD Tincture about 30 minutes before takeoff to enjoy deep and long-lasting relief from flight jitters.
- If you’ve ever spent hours hunched over a steering wheel or perched uncomfortably in a tight airplane seat, you know that travel-related soreness is real. Fortunately, our 500mg CBD Isolate Transdermal Cream helps loosen stiff joints and calm angry muscles for a much smoother ride.
How much CBD should I take when I travel?
CBD is safe to use, even in large quantities, but exact dosage can vary drastically between users and their circumstances. For example, a small dose could be enough to get you through a short plane right, while battling jet lag may require a heavier dose. It’s best start introducing CBD into your daily wellness routine several weeks before a big trip. That way, you can gauge your response and decide how much CBD is right for you. We recommend the “start low and go slow” rule of thumb to our new CBD customers. In other words, start with the recommended 5mg dose twice daily and then slowly increase as needed to achieve desired effects.
Is it legal to travel with CBD?
Even though CBD was legalized at the federal level in 2018, it’s important to note that it is still illegal in some U.S. states as well as some foreign countries. Most states require hemp-based CBD to contain less than 0.3 percent THC, and some CBD products (such as our transdermal cream) contain no THC whatsoever. If you are uncertain of the laws around marijuana and CBD at your destination, it’s best to do some upfront research.
Logistically speaking, it is very easy to travel with CBD since it comes in so many convenient formats. As previously mentioned, you can fly with CBD in the United States as long as the product contains less than 0.3 percent THC. Keep in mind, however, that any liquids (oils, tinctures, creams) must be less than three ounces, per TSA regulations.
