Are you a nervous flyer? From buying travel insurance to booking your flights months in advance, there are steps you can take to reduce the stress associated with flying. Make travel easy with CBD.

Traveling Long Distances Is Now Easy With CBD.

Traveling is one of the most rewarding activities in which one can partake. It is exciting discovering new places, experiencing new cultures, and trying new foods. There is nothing quite like it. However, stress has a way to sneak into our lives even when we’re having the best time. 

Most people manage that stress by planning for all contingencies associated with long trips. From buying travel insurance to booking your flights months in advance, there are steps you can take to reduce the chances of something unexpected happening. However, for some people, flying itself can be a source of stress. In this article, we’re going to look at how traveling long distances is made easier with CBD.

What Is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD)  is a natural compound found in hemp plants. To understand how CBD interacts with our body, we’ll need to dive a little deeper. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a regulative system that allows our cells and organs to communicate with each other to keep our internal systems in condition. In other words, this extensive system works continually to keep us healthy and functioning. CBD interacts with this system to enhance its various functions while delivering a soothing effect.

How Can CBD Help in Traveling?

Now that you are familiar with how CBD interacts with the body, you already have your answer. If you are a nervous flyer, the supportive properties of CBD may help promote feelings of ease, allowing you to relax while you’re catching up on your shows or may even help with falling asleep.  

Getting Rid of Jet Lag for Good

Jet lag is a prevalent sleep disorder that affects frequent travelers. For years, jet lag was viewed as a temporary mental state. Now, research shows that the condition actually occurs from an irregularity in our body's innate biological clock caused by flying to different time zones.

Some of the side effects of jet lag include:

  • Gastrointestinal Distress
  • Decreased Alertness
  • General Malaise
  • Muscle Soreness
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Disturbed Sleep

Those who frequently get jet lag may be wondering if CBD oil can help to counteract the symptoms of jet lag. CBD’s supportive properties may provide some support when jet lag lingers.

Is It Safe?

Traveling with CBD products doesn’t have to be a problem anymore. Just recently, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) clarified its policies on CBD. Now, according to the Huffington Post, FDA-approved hemp-derived CBD products are permitted in both carry-on and checked bags. Travelers can now pack their oils, gummies, or capsules with them without fear of confiscation. 

Safety is not the only aspect to be taken into consideration when discussing CBD. CBD can be derived from hemp or marijuana. Since the two can’t be differentiated from one another, that makes things even more complicated. 

Do Laws Support It?

It's normal for people to wonder if CBD oil is legal?  And what are the CBD laws? The answer is not as conclusive as you might think. Let's find out why. 

The Farm Bill made hemp federally legal to produce, purchase, and use under certain standards and regulations. However, things get murkier from here. At the state level, laws surrounding CBD are highly inconclusive, meaning that each state has its own set of policies regarding the compound. For a substance to be considered legal, the state law has to match the federal law. Although some states have opted-in and made hemp-derived CBD legal, that is not the case for many. 

CBD’s long legality history is due to the constant changes, research, and on-going discussion surrounding both hemp and marijuana. Because there still seems to be a mix-up on the differences between the two, the regulations are constantly changing. 

Don’t Forget to Pack Your CBD Oil

Traveling should be fun, memorable, and stress-free. Who says you should only enjoy the destination? CBD can help you enjoy getting there as well. Many companies offer a variety of CBD products. These products include oils, gummies, capsules, topicals, and much more. 

Always consult your physician before adding a new substance to your diet.
