Travelling with CBD oil or cannabis oil
It is very important that you determine in advance what the rules are in the various countries when you go on holiday. The rule of thumb is that it is safe for 90% of all European countries to take CBD oil with you on holiday.
Please note that you always request a lab report from the selling party that is not older than 3 months. This is mainly due to the demonstrable evidence that there is at least less than 0.2% THC in the CBD oil. Since we have to meet much stricter requirements in the Netherlands, this is all very well done with the Cannabas brand. In the Netherlands we therefore have to comply with stricter laws and regulations. The THC should be below 0.05%. So you can say that our Dutch-made CBD oil in Europe will help you and that you can travel safely.
Then we have some more popular destinations that we would like to draw attention to.
It is no problem at all to take CBD oil with you to Greece. However, we advise never to tie the cat to the bacon. We always suggest our customers to bring the CBD oil in a bottle, sufficient for your stay.
So take your already opened bottle with you, put it in your toiletry bag and make sure that you preferably put it in the large suitcase. If you travel with a trolley, we even advise you to remove the label from the bottle. You can in any case look up the lab report on our website. Always handy if you want to show that it is a legal product without illegal THC percentages.
If you experience problems at border control or at the airport, always stay calm and relaxed. You are not doing anything wrong and the oil is guaranteed to be below 0.05% THC.
We supply very large quantities of CBD oil to Spain ourselves for all our Dutch and Spanish customers. So we can say with confidence that it is no problem to take CBD oil with you to Spain.
We are talking about our CBD oil here, since we can say with certainty that there is nothing wrong with the THC level. In Spain it is in any case a bit more liberal with regard to cannabis, and certainly with regard to the recreational use of cannabis. There are hundreds of so-called social clubs that legally supply cannabis. Appearances can be deceiving, because in the end you will of course be visiting Spain. Don’t be naive. Feel free to take your CBD oil with you, put it in your toiletry bag. If there is then a so-called proactive customs officer, you can at least always prove that the oil does not contain strange percentages of THC by means of our lab reports.
If you take CBD oil with you to Turkey, you can quickly run into a problem. In Turkey they don’t really know what to do with it. It’s not really known yet. The word hemp in Turkish is Kenevir. In Turkey they do not distinguish between hemp and cannabis and it is simply not legal. Although nowadays you see a lot of changes in how Turkey handles hemp. The current president himself has approved the cultivation of hemp and it is now grown outright.
If you are traveling to Turkey and want to take CBD with you, our advice is that you always put it unlabeled in your toiletry bag. The customs machines at the airport are not surprising since almost no THC is traceable in our oil. So you don’t have to worry. In addition, it is well sealed in a good bottle, with brown glass.
The CBD oil can therefore simply be seen as a skin oil or massage oil for the scalp. If you get possible questions, name one of these two examples. You will then see that you can cross the border flawlessly and enjoy your well-deserved holiday in Turkey.
Can CBD oil pass through Dutch Customs?
We have very good relations with Customs in the Netherlands. It is of great importance to us as a company when we import CBD extracts from abroad that we do not come into contact with high THC percentages.
The restrictions in the Netherlands at Customs for CBD oil are far below the 0.2% THC limit in the rest of Europe. In the Netherlands, the limit is a maximum of 0.05% THC. If you are below this percentage, Customs will not take active action against CBD oil. So if we work with an extract that is less than 0.05% THC, then all our products that we produce from this are immediately legal.
We ship our CBD oil. So you can send our CBD products abroad with peace of mind. Do you have any doubts or do you still have questions? We are happy to advise you and can also send the shipment of CBD oil to your family, acquaintance or friend.
Advice when traveling with CBD oil
CBD oil does not fall under the Dutch Opium Act, so you can take it across the border. However, we also advise you to first do research into the country of destination and the regulations there with regard to CBD oil. Some things to look out for are:
- Is CBD oil freely available there?
- Is CBD oil legal in the destination country?
- What is the advice of the relevant Customs?
In principle, you can assume that when you travel within Europe, you will not get into trouble by possessing CBD oil. Is your holiday destination outside Europe? Then we advise you to be a little more careful. There are countries where they see every product from the cannabis plant as a drug. If you get a check at Customs and they accidentally find your bottle of CBD oil with a cannabis leaf on it, they could be very difficult. It is always advised to take it with you without a label or other packaging.
Are you going on a trip outside Europe? Always contact customs beforehand and explain your problem. You could also cover yourself by printing out a test report from the lab, in which the ingredients of your CBD oil are accurately described. With every product in our store you can find the lab report in the description. If you have more questions, feel free to reach out to 040-7859520 .
Can I take THC oil abroad with me?
If you want to take THC oil with you abroad, it is very important that you know the following. Unfortunately, this active substance is on list I within the Opium Act. When a drug is on that list, you must always request a Schengen declaration when you travel to one of the Schengen countries. This includes the following countries:
- Czech Republic
The Schengen declaration is only valid for thirty days, keep this in mind when planning the trip. This statement is also only available to those people who use cannabis oil on a doctor’s prescription. Do you provide yourself with this medicine? Then you will have to arrange something else for the period that you go abroad. You can think of arranging a prescription with the doctor. Unfortunately, the oil that is available at the pharmacy often has a lesser effect.
Are you traveling outside the Schengen countries? Then you need an English-language medical statement from your attending physician and sometimes also permission from the embassy or consulate of the country concerned. Once you have this statement in your possession, it is valid for a period of 1 year. This only applies to the country for which the statement was issued.
We do not provide official advice when it comes to carrying CBD products or other related cannabis products. Always keep in mind that each country has its own legislation regarding Cannabis or cannabis related products. Do not take unnecessary risks and be well informed.
Good preparation ensures a relaxed journey
As you have read, there are quite a few things to consider when traveling with a cannabis product. Unfortunately, but it is no different. It also doesn’t look like this will get much easier in the coming years.
When you prepare yourself optimally for the first upcoming trip abroad, you will benefit from all other trips. If you are forced to use an oil from the pharmacy, we advise you to try it well before your trip. It wouldn’t make your vacation more fun if the oil doesn’t work properly.
