Many people regularly travel with cannabis without incident. But those who are too nervous, paranoid or risk averse need not deprive themselves of cannabinoids when they are not at home.
Pharmacies have plenty of options that won’t grab your attention during a security screening that you’re likely to encounter whether you’re boarding a plane, driving across state lines, or traveling by train.
For added stealth or peace of mind, remove all labels stating cannabis or transfer medicinal products to another container.
Topical medications such as creams, lotions, ointments, and ointments provide pain relief without psychoactivity. Please note that liquids cannot be carried on an airplane if the container is larger than 3.4 ounces.
Cannabis capsules are convenient and visually indistinguishable from over-the-counter herbal supplements, but they are often extremely potent, so use caution to avoid over-medication.
Edibles come in a wide variety of forms, some of which are more travel-friendly than others. Biscuits can crumble, chocolate can melt, and honey is often seized by TSA for more than 3.4 ounces. Sweets are usually a more practical option, but it can be hard to resist the temptation to eat too many at once, so be sure to pack snacks as well.
Tinctures and sprays allow you to titrate your own dose, and when administered under the tongue, they work faster than capsules or edibles.
Other uniquely discreet and efficient cannabis products include under-the-tongue strips that resemble breath strips, and a calorie-free lozenge called the Trokie.
While you should certainly not attempt to use a vaporizer on an airplane, a vape pen resembling an e-cigarette, along with the accompanying oil cartridges, should not arouse suspicion and provide a welcome puff upon arrival at your destination. .
