​Will Garvin comments on traveling among conflicting laws between states regarding CBD in "Heads Up: TSA Officers Might Not Like Your CBD Oil," published in The Cannabis Herald.

Co-Head William Garvin of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, a law firm that advocates for the cannabis industry, said that CBD is nothing like the usual consumer products. He made an example of Diet Coke, which one can buy in Missouri and carry all the way to Montana. This case is not acceptable to CBD due to conflicting laws between states.

Experts and advocates like An and Garvin do not advise traveling with CBD due to the risks. Expensive CBD products could be confiscated, or worse, the traveler could miss their flight. All of these problems are dependent on the destination and the laws on CBD that the state implements.

Garvin added that it's more practical to buy CBD oil from wherever the traveler is going to since it is widely available across many states. Ultimately, it is up to the person carrying CBD if they are amenable to facing the risks of traveling with the product.
